That? We kinda love. At least the idea of it. There’s some fit issues in the bust, causing the lapels to do some crazy things, but the shape and the style are really great for her. No on the shoe bows, though. Although we have to admit, those are some cute shoes. But she needed something a little sleeker than that to go with that pant length, which is tough to pull off.

Later that night, she went for drama:

We weren’t entirely on board with this one until we saw that one picture? You know, the one with her looking over her shoulder and the wind blowing through her hair and making her skirt look all goth and witchy? That is some serious shit, you guys.

    It’s nice to see her nailing it for once.

  • lalahartma

    Looking good!

  • If not for that one shot, I would be finding it hard to be on board as well. The photos I saw elsewhere I was definitely not on board. In fact I was thinking it needed an updo, till that shot.

    I am so thankful you guys always seem to find a shot that I haven’t seen elsewhere. 🙂 and that shot is usually the one that makes the difference.

    She, however.. she is just stunningly gorgeous. Does not matter so much for me what she wears, I just adore her. 🙂

  • Missy

    She looks like a hair-color commercial in the second set of photos–in the *best* of ways.
    “Because you’re worth it, girl.”

  • majorbedhead

    Woof. I would switch teams for that woman. Especially that over-the-shoulder shot. Gorgeous.

    • ^ Same.

    • formerlyAnon

      If I could, she’d be the one.

      • i want to just dive into that cleavage. chiffon flying everywhere.

  • Haha! Some serious shit indeed. She looks great.

  • cmb123

    Her hair and face in the first look are giving me life.She looks so soft and pretty, just gorgeous

  • Imma Mäder

    NAILING it, especially the second one. Love that dress

  • Denise Alden

    What a delight to see her look so amazing! She is such a heartbreakingly gorgeous woman, and I love it when the clothes come close to matching her beauty.

  • thecitysleeps

    OMG that second look, I’m in love. Have me, Christina. That dress is gorgeous, loving the top and her hair is looking lovely in contrast.

    • makeityourself

      She had the bodice lined and it fits beautifully. Kudos to her.

  • @Biting Panda

    I just love her!! Love!!

  • LilyVanessi

    The dress looks so dull on the model and so amazing on her. Bull’s eye!

  • barbarienne

    That “goth and witchy” look is totally a book cover photograph. (For an urban fantasy novel, I mean.)

    Whoever is doing her makeup needs a huge round of applause. Her face looks fantastic.

    • not_Bridget

      That’s how Katrina Crane wishes she looks…..

  • Karen Belgrad

    I’m totally going to have “Black Magic Woman” stuck in my head the rest of the day… Thanks.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    AWESOME!!! Good for her!

  • Did she bring that wind with her? Really striking.

    • MilaXX

      Maybe Beyonce loaned her one of her fan machines.

    • It’s been really windy all week, it seems. I saw a photo of Jessica Chastain (wearing gown #1 in TLo’s “triple style shot” of her at Cannes) and the skirt on that dress blew up so high she only narrowly avoided accidentally flashing the world’s paparazzi. Seriously, that long gown with train was up around her butt.

  • Shawn EH

    1st one: scrolldown attagirl! 2nd: Move over Stevie Nicks! If ever black was someone’s color ….

  • YES.

    I still think that jacket looks better on her than on the model. And you’re right, that over-the-shoulder shot is everything.

  • decormaven

    Best shoes she’s worn, ever- even the ones with the bows. That second look – wow! Go, Miss Lady.

  • Kitten Mittons

    Oh my word, she did it. She friggin nailed it.

  • KT

    I don’t love the first look. The fit is wonky and the top just seems to be adding a lot of volume to an area that really doesn’t need it. The pants length is awkward, and the pants themselves don’t seem to be fitting that well, either. The shoes are silly-looking. This whole thing is trying to be sleek but it’s just coming off as fussy and forced — like a little girl trying to play grown-up in her mom’s closet.

    The second look, however, is FUCKING FABULOUS. Yes Christina– more of this, please. You are obviously no little girl, you are a woman dammit, and this is some beautiful, classy, sophisticated, sexy, womanly shit right here. I feel empowered just looking at you. In fact, I’m going to make sure to walk through a wind tunnel and turn my head at just the right moment, all the while owning my shit, IN YOUR HONOR. Love it.

  • Sofia

    as a grown woman i’m a little embarrassed to say that ms. hendricks has been instrumental in helping me embrace my curves. embarrassed because i should have had body issues figured out long ago, but i apparently needed joan halloway to walk into my life. it’s so difficult when you never see your body type anywhere. i am overjoyed at how these 2 looks come to life on her. the way she fills out that blazer is a thing of beauty. as for the dress, her sheer lusciousness transforms it.

    • Ah, Sofia, you are alone! I always think the same thing when I see her, we have similar proportions. I wouldn’t mind having her head as well.

  • crash1212

    That last dress is beautiful. It fits her like a freakin’ glove. Kudos to Alberta Ferretti for wrangling that chestal region perfectly.

  • Danielle

    Lordy lordy, I needed that wakeup call! WERQ!

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    She looks really beautiful in both. Don’t love the first outfit – it’s too casual with the short pants and the shortened sleeves. The fit is all wonky. The girl and her bows on things drives me nuts, but these shoes are not too bad compared to some of her others. The 2nd looks is gorgeous, full stop. Love love her hair down and soft. Love the detailing on the top and the “witchy” skirt. Hooray for Christina!! (I feel like we have to cheer her on in the right direction!)

  • GillianHolroyd

    Sorry. I think black is too harsh for her coloring and black fiddly lace with sparkles and ruffles is a double no.

  • Noah

    “That” picture could be from an editorial. Jesus H.

  • Anna

    So happy for Christina and also happy for my eyeballs, since this is the first Dior I’ve looked at in a long, LONG time without wanting to punch myself in the face. I even like the bows.

    2nd look is serving pure Black Magic Woman who stole Beyonce’s wind. Love it.

    • demidaemon

      I know (on the Dior.) “This is Dior? Really? And I like it? What’s going on?” Those were the thoughts running through my head.

      • Anna

        Spoke too soon though. Nearly fainted dead away when I clicked on the Marion Cotillard post a few minutes later.

        • demidaemon

          Yeah…a definite fluke. 🙁

          • Anna

            Yeah, good Dior is practically a unicorn sighting these days.

          • Anna

            Yeah, good Dior is practically a unicorn sighting these days.

          • demidaemon

            True. I’d still rather see a unicorn than any Dior, though. 🙂

  • ballerinawithagun

    I can’t believe that the first thing I thought was “I love the idea of that peplum suit” exactly as you two did! The seaming is a little too gimmicky for her figure but it is definitely a great style for her. The V neck stopping right at her cleavage is perfection. It was quite a surprise that the mesh top on the evening gown works so well on her but it does! Her cleavage shows the perfect amount and the vertical and V lines divide her bosom into smaller areas so lovely proportions aren’t as overwhelming as they sometime seem. I’ve had lots of experience advising busty clients!


    (calming down remembering to breathe)

  • Wink

    Yes! She (or her stylist) is finally getting it! Kudos!

  • FibonacciSequins

    Wow, she rocked both looks! She’s always going to have fit issues around her bust, so I don’t even count that. Not a fan of the shoe bows and I would like to see her hair up off her shoulders to keep the focus on the bodice in the evening look.

    But I quibble. She’s va-va-voom sexy in a very modern way and I love it!

  • gloriana232

    I really love the dress, except the shoes! Ahhhh, the satin! The platform! So meh!

    Plus, while I also love the witchy hair wind goodness, I would have loved to see her in a slightly loose updo with those curls. That would have added a little formality, showed off the beading near her face and neck better, and paired a little structure in contrast to the skirt … as it stands, her loose hair kind of reminds me of the floaty layers of skirt.

  • ktr33


  • TAGinMO

    “There’s some fit issues in the bust.”

    Strong epitaph contender right there.

  • Heather

    Aww, I wish her cute hubby weren’t cropped out. That’s a nice pic of the two of them.

  • Snarkmeister

    LOVE it. My only quibble? I’d really enjoy seeing some color. Black is too often the go-to choice for ladies with considerable assets.

  • Anna Vasquez

    “All your life, you’ve never seen a woman taken by the wind…”

  • MilaXX

    This is really good for her. The first look has some fit issues as mentioned, but I think the bows on the shoes work with the outfit. Besides it fits her girly aesthetic. The second look is really good and the photographer tat caught that over the shoulder look just earned his keep. That is sexy as all get out. Mr. Ferretti deserves all kinds of props for supporting the boobs and making the sheer work for her. Again it all fit her love of all things frilly.She looks good!

  • KinoEye

    I swooned when I got to the over-the-shoulder photo of the second look. Absolutely stunning. Once again, I know it’s a wig, but that is some enviable hair.

  • Fuchsiaforever

    BAM!!! BAM!! BAM!!! She looks great & lovely!!!

  • Tanya Wade

    Yes with the over-the-shoulder look – she is giving me romance novel cover gorge. I am actually on board with the pump bows in the first ensemble because they suit her style and the shape of the shoe is über-flattering on her. But that second look….whoa.

  • suzq

    I would have loved longer torsos with both the Dior jacket (look at how long the peplum is on the model) and the Ferretti gown. When the waist is too high, even if it is her natural waist, it looks like an empire waist because her chest is so big in proportion to her waist. Lengthening that space a bit would elongate her a bit. Otherwise, I’m SHOCKED at how good that Dior looks on her. Snaps to her zhuzhers!

  • kimmeister

    I love the jacket from the first look for her. Yes, there are fit issues, but the flappy front that would look silly on most people serves as a perfect counterpoint to balance out her bust.

    I don’t particularly like the 2nd look, but yes, the wind catching one’s hair just at the right moment is a high-impact image. It once sold an ex-bf of mine when he wondered to himself, “Is kimmeister really as awesome as I think she is?” 😛

  • She’s stunning. End of story. Both looks are glorious.

  • greymain

    knowing how DIFFICULT it is to dress a “rubenesque” figure …props all around ! LUV HUH…

  • Joanna

    She looks soooooooooooooo good! Absolute WERQ for me!

  • World of Sass

    Ravishing! It’s got an Edwardian vibe that really works for her. Girl can generate a pretty spectacular S-curve without any corsetry.

  • Valdri8

    Sorry, That first look is tragic – I love her, but tragic. Her bustline looks horrible. I have c-cup boobs and I never wear anything cut like this because it always looks wonky and sitting somewhere between 1/4″ to 6″ from where it was intended to sit. Am I the only one who feels this way. I also hate her in black when she has so many other color choices.

    • P M

      That’s the boobs’ fault, not the jacket’s.

      • Valdri8

        I totally agree. The mistake is in even trying to take something that looks great on a model who has no boobs and translate it. I do not understand why she is not having clothes made just for her. I cannot not believe that she does not have her own clothing line by now. There are throngs of big-chested women who would buy clothing that just freaking fit them and looked great. She is CH, for heaven’s sake, and she cannot find clothes to fit HER.

        • P M

          1) Man, my comment was awkwardly phrased.
          2) If anyone deserves custom couture, it’s Christina.
          3) Get out of my way if that clothing line ever happens. I will cause serious damage in trying to get to the front of the line.
          4) If nothing else, she could make a killing if she ever decided to back a high-tech, custom bra company with varying prices. One could step into a department/ lingerie store, get one’s girls scanned by a machine that would analyze the various factors, fill in one’s concerns (eg: back pain, etc) and then get a custom bra. I’d do it myself, but I doubt the Dragon’s Den assholes would give me any money.

  • marlie

    I like the first look on her (with quibbles), but I LOOOOOVE that second one. She looks gorgeous!!

    ETA: I also love how her hubby brought his own camera.

  • TinaBelchersawkwardmoan

    Look at her husband following her and biting his lip all “I go home with her every night!” Damn right you do, son.

  • Miss wks

    She looks better than the model…in BOTH pictures…

  • FridaStaire

    Hated the long hair….until that shot

  • Lower L

    A “Wow!” escaped my lips when I saw the second dress. When I saw the skirt wasn’t opaque all the way down, I was disappointed, but she is rocking the hell out of that look, and she knows it. The bodice is fantastic.

  • Hoffa_w_HerHead

    For me, outfit #1 needs to have the pants be tapered and a bold color. (Are those two different blacks? That bugs!) Outfit #2 generally isn’t my style, but man on her, it works!!

    Christina is so beautiful! I love when the clothing enhances that!

  • nannypoo

    She’s really gorgeous. And when she goes out in heels with a smile on her face you know she is a great actress. Those bunions must be killing her.

  • Heather

    She is so flawless it almost hurts my eyes to take in that much perfection. (but I hate the shoes in the first outfit)

  • Qitkat

    I’m happy I have one thing in common with Christina Hendricks and Michelle Obama–short-waisted.

    That second look, all I can see is Best-Dressed Wench at the Renaissance Faire Ball, not that that is a criticism. That come-hither glance over her shoulder is awesome!

    • kimmeister

      The boobs would be much more uncovered at a Ren Faire! But I guess that’s why should would be Best Dressed.

      What I have in common with Christina: I’m a married human female. That’s about it.

  • Terri Terri

    applause and applause again

  • demidaemon

    BAM. POW. That is what we are getting in the gown. I am really surprised at how much I like the Dior on her. I mean, it’s fricking Dior and she looks pretty good. Pigs really are flying today, for all sorts of reasons.

  • Suse

    Does she ever go without a wig? I don’t know that I’ve seen her real hair. Maybe it’s very thin, hence the wigs?

    • not_Bridget

      Do you?

  • Tee

    I’m dusting off my “around the world and back” snaps. That over the shoulder look is perfect!

  • quiltrx

    The bodice on that Ferretti is magic! The stop between it and the skirt is a bit abrupt, but that’s a quibble. Terrific dress on her.

  • livesarah

    First outfit is great but the black seems so wrong for the location and time of year.

  • ladybane

    I love this woman.

  • aquamarine17

    gorgeous in her dress! it is good in so many ways. bravissima, Christine!

  • The guy in the black tux, in back of her in the first photo? The one who’s having a bad bow tie day? He looks like the old actor Cantinflas. He was the sidekick, named “Passepartout”, in the movie “Around the World in Eighty Days”. Really striking resemblance, to me.

  • J. Preposterice

    Oh, HONEY. In the first set of pics, I can see the line of her bra cutting into her boob. That bra does. not. fit.

  • Michelle Lim

    FAB!! She nailed it.

  • Scot Meacham Wood

    I think one of my favourite things about the festival . . . is the fact that the “Beyonce Style Fan” seems to just naturally blow through all of the proceedings. Oh . . . and Miss Christina looks amazing this evening.

  • Helenduck

    She apparently went to my local high school and was a goth while there. Awesome!

  • d4divine

    She’s a gorgeous bowl of freshly whipped cream…but that jacket ain’t working with those boobs

  • LadyVimes

    Oh la la! Miss Lady indeed!

  • JynxTheCat

    Her weave is sitting a little high Wendy Williams style but other than that WOW

  • Gatto Nero

    That gown may be the best thing she’s worn — ever.

  • ktr33

    Ok, you many want to ostracize me for this but — look 1) the long sleeves as worn by the model would’ve been more sophisticated. The cropped sleeves and the overly tight fit n the bust just makes it looks like stuffed herslf into a child’s jacket. And her posing is very awkward. Look 2) I’m mostly getting Wild West Madam.

  • Gloriana Reginata

    Wow. Given that her bosom tends to get so much focus anyway, I’d have thought that a gown with all the focus there would be the worst for her – but this looks terrific. Unlike the daytime jacket, it seems to fit her effortlessly; and all the sparkle just enhances rather than detracts. Plus, the black and her hair: it pulls your eye back up to her fantastic face again. Best I’ve ever seen her look.

  • Man Dala

    The upper part of the dress in the second look could’ve been featured in an episode of Downton Abbey, which is a great thing in my books.

  • KateM

    Awesome! I’ve noticed the ladies have been wrangled very well lately – when’s the last time we saw baby head on her?

  • MarissaLG

    Double WERQ. She looks amazing, especially in look #1. Love it. Love her.

  • Therese Bohn

    WOW! Rock on Christina! Gorgeous! Keep it up!

  • formerlyAnon

    I like ’em both. I like the arm-in-arm ease with the husband. (Think the first one is closer to being a Look.)

  • Mrs. O

    Fabulous. Disagree on the shoes…I think they are wonderful. I’m not a big fan of her usual look, but, Oh Mama!, she looks perfect here.

  • Michelle Gennari

    Dress looks amazing. Pantsuit not so much. Poor fit and her hair and makeup need some zhuzzing.

  • KayEmWhy

    She loves the dress, you can tell. Not to the Frankenstein shoes, too heavy for the dress.

  • MarinaCat

    I love the pantsuit and not the dress. Every time I see her in a high neck, it looks like her breasts are struggling through the pulled garment.

  • mickiemonkey

    You can bet all conversations stopped and all heads turned when she walked by. Cars crashed into buildings and phones dropped out of hands.

  • Jean Beaton Leavitt

    She knows she is a knockout in that gown…good for her!

  • That one shot. Amazeballs.

  • Alloy Jane

    Son of a bitch, she looks fabulous. I think “goth and witchy” is her thing. And hats, I remember her saying something about liking hats.

  • Contralto

    The over-the-shoulder shot is making me all swoony.

  • pattie capet

    Wow. I’ve never seen her like this. The French must have taken over her styling.

  • AnotherG

    Serving shawl-less Stevie Nicks realness! Well done, both her and that photographer, whose heart probably skipped a beat when he saw that Moment.
