Christina Hendricks for Cosmopolitan UK
Christina hauls out the babyheads for Cosmo, which is like Babyhead Central International and has been for the last 35 years.
Christina Hendricks featured in the March 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan UK photographed by James White.
Inside, she gives very publicist-approved sound bites.
On not expecting to become a pin-up: “It’s incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn’t think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin up. My husband has a good laugh about it, of course.”
On how she defines “sexy”: “Sexiness is about confidence and individuality. I can’t keep my eyes off the women you see in cities like London, New York and Paris – the way they carry themselves and put themselves together are always so unique. Sexiness is about being an individual and having conviction about what that is.”
But let’s face it, it’s all about the pictures.
The hair and makeup are perfect for her. She’s way more attractive when she’s laughing or smiling. Not that she’s unattractive otherwise, but sometimes she’s asked to sell the sultry looks a little too hard when she poses for pics. She’s much more interesting when she’s vivacious than when she’s sucking in her cheeks.
And the neckline and proportions on that gold dress are terrible for her figure.
