Christina Hendricks Channels Marilyn Monroe – the 39-year old Mad Men star is famous for her very curvy figure and also her fiery red hair. However the red locks were hidden under a blonde wig as she headed out yesterday evening.
Christina was seen wearing the platinum blonde wig as she partied at the David Arquette’s West Hollywood club Bootsy Bellows on Saturday with some friends.
Although she is well-known for her red hair Christina has recently admitted that her natural hair colour is actually nearer to the blonde you can see here. She apparently started dying her hair at the tender age of 10-years old after she was captivated by Anne of Green Gables. Her mother said that she should could dye her hair to match her heroine and the rest is history.
Some of Christina’s other secrets include a near addiction to buying lipsticks, especially in red and coral colours and the fact that her favourite scent is Cannabis Rose from Fresh. The perfume includes notes of Bulgarian rose as well as bergamot, dark chocolate and white musk. The scent links in to Christina’s Mad Men character Joan who started wearing a lot or dresses with rose designs on them and the link was made between her character’s clothing and her choice of perfume.
Christina and the rest of the Mad Men cast have just finished shooting the 6th series of the show, which this time will comprise just 7 episodes. There has been cause for celebration in the last few days after Christina discovered she had been nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. It is Christina’s 5th consecutive nomination in that category for her role in Mad Men although so far she has failed to win the award. Last year the award went to Anna Gunn for playing the part of Skyler White in Breaking Bad.
Although Christina’s very curvy figure appeals to plenty of men she also inspires plenty of women and in 2010 an Esquire survey of 10k women found that she was seen by American women as the best looking woman in the country, attracting 30% of the votes. For reference the women voted Johnny Depp as the best looking man with 29% of the vote narrowly beating George Clooney on 28%. Christina’s win was more emphatic with almost double the votes of 2nd placed woman Adriana Lima (17%).
The new series of Mad Men will not appear on screens until some time in 2015. AMC are yet to confirm a definite air date.
