So we can see this happening, but can’t imagine it happening. Confused much? Well, so are we! Because someone as gorgeous as Christina Hendricks had to struggle to find a dress at the Emmy’s. Because no designer would bloody well give her one. Esquire‘s Best Looking Woman had to scrounge around for a dress. What hope do the rest of us have.
Of course this links into the whole fashion-size zero debate, and Christina is going to find herself at the epicenter of it more times than we shudder to count. But have you seen her? That waist, those boobs, that face… she’s a knock out. And yet, she revealed, “People have been saying some nice, wonderful things about me. Yet not one designer in town will loan me a dress.Ã‚Â They only lend out a size 0 or 2. So I’m still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress.”
Her stylist of three years Lawren Sample backed up her sentiment and had even more to dish about the ‘dilemma’ of finding the Mad Men star a dress saying, “…Finally, a woman who looks like a woman! So why will no one dress her?” She apparently has to kow-tow to designers saying that Christina isÃ‚Â a “huge, huge fan” of their work. Doesn’t really work though Lawren explained,Ã‚Â ’They’ll say: ‘Unfortunately, we don’t have the sizes to support her,’ or ”Unfortunately, we only have a size two or four.’ ” This isn’t the first time Christina’s had to face problems about what to wear, or backlash about her curves.
At this years Emmys, designers likeÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Donna Karan were politically correct enough to say they were interested in her cause, but not one stepped up to actually design a dress. Their excuse? That they were too busy. Ã‚Â Elie Saab flat out refused to even consider designing a dress for the size 14 beauty, saying, “We only carry sizes zero to two.” And we’re saying: get over yourselves.
Finally Zac Posen saved the day saying, “She’s got a beautiful body, there’s no reason to hide anything. Let’s celebrate what she has.” While we weren’t too happy with the feathers on Christina’s dress we thought the lilac of the gown was a dream on her. And we’d be lucky if we looked anything like Christina.
