The Mad Men cast is poledancing like crazy to get us all excited for the new season coming up. Christina has opted for color and we are, once again, very grateful for it, since the red carpet can be a dreary place post-awards-season. Besides, if there’s any gal who should be embracing color on the regular, it’s her.
First up, a little tribute to one of her go-to designers, L’Wren Scott:
Christina Hendricks attends the 2014 PaleyFest “Mad Men” Panel in Hollywood, California in a L’Wren Scott dress.
She really looks great. Our issue here is that it’s almost costumey how retro it is. We think we’d like it better if you took 3 inches off the hem and added 3 inches to the sleeve. That would even out the proportions a bit. We’re not super-crazy about the trim, which does tend to give it a home-sewn feel. Also, the shoes are fine, but the matching bag makes us wince. Basically, this look works because of the shape and the color, both of which are perfect for her.
Next, Christina switches things up:

SUPER cute. Our first impulse was to ding her for matching the pants to the coat, but we think doing that is what turns this into a slightly more formal look. Contrasting pants would’ve just looked like she threw a great coat over a shitty old outfit. Having it all match like this really pulls it together. Normally, we hate coats that match the ensemble because it looks way too Barbie to us, but we may have to loosen up a little when pants are in the mix. If she’d worn a matching skirt we KNOW we’d have hated it.
