Christina Hendricks Mad Men Emmy Awards 2010Did you see the ravishing Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) last night on the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards? She wore a stunning, curve-hugging lilac chiffon Zac Posen gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, its pretty short sleeves and a flowy skirt both fringed in ostrich feathers.

However, as dreamy-bodied as the 5' 8", size 14, actress is -- Christina Hendricks' measurements, according to the Daily Record, are 39D-30-39 (although our sources put her at cup size at a 38-DDD, which sounds more accurate) -- Hollywood's top designers are not rushing to dress her. 

Don't they know that this woman could make a potato sack look good?

High-end designers should be clamoring to dress Christina Hendricks, who plays office manager Joan Harris (was Holloway) on Mad Men, but apparently they're not.

"People have been saying some nice, wonderful things about me. Yet not one designer in town will loan me a dress," the Best Supporting Actress nominee told the Daily Mail last week before the Emmy Awards. "They only lend out a size 0 or 2. So I'm still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress."

Women everywhere adore Hendricks for bringing back curves and the hourglass figure. She's inducing girl crushes across the nation. She makes women feel they can embrace their curves and their non-twiggy bodies -- and dress them gorgeously because she does. It's pretty exciting, but when will designers follow suit?

"This has always been my size. I've worked on other shows with this same size but Mad Men celebrates it and that is nice," added Hendricks.

Although it's not that surprising, can you believe top designers aren't going crazy to dress Christina Hendricks?
