Christina Hendricks On The Cover Of Harper’s Bazaar

Christina Hendricks dresses up in tailored suits for the Harper’s photo shoot, and talks with the magazine about the agony of dressing dressy in Hollywood:

She notes the perverse pressure on actresses to turn up in designer gowns for one night only and the challenges when one can’t just slip into something off the sample rack. “You are expected to go to these things wearing fabulous dresses that are incredibly expensive, so it gets difficult,” she says. “I found myself at the beginning of Mad Men, because I wasn’t a sample size, spending an exorbitant amount of money on a nice dress that I would never wear again because someone would say” – she wrinkles her nose theatrically – “‘Christina Hendricks wore this dress twice.’”
