I am rather obsessed with Christina Hendricks, who plays Mad Men‘s glorious, whip-smart, feline secretary Joan Holloway. Her porcelain skin, bodacious hips, magnificent coif, wardrobe of endless solids, and elegant neck are the stuff of goddesses, or at least of wonderful seductresses and forces of nature. If you watch Mad Men (it should basically be required viewing), you know that it would be impossible to imagine the spitfire embodied by any other woman–because Joan needs to be played be a woman, and Hendricks is most certainly a woman.
Hendricks is an antidote to a plague of Hollywood’s dull-eyed, static, overdressed, bony girl actresses (like the entire cast of the new 90210 that I refuse to investigate)–who parade down Robertson Blvd. as meaningfully as a film premiere red carpet and become US Weekly staples well before they amass multiple credits on their IMDB.
She’s wonderful! And now she’s engaged…
Congratulasians go out to the happy couple!
