Age: 35

I think Christina Hendricks is such a gorgeous woman! I love to design for curvaceous women and Christina has a really amazing figure. I don’t think her stylist makes the best decisions in the world when it comes to picking out outfits for her, but then again, often designers do not make clothes that are flattering for fuller figured women. I do love most of the outfits they select for her in Mad Men, she looks like she belongs in that time period and they are often flattering for her body type.

Christina has a strawberry or triangle shape, she has a figure that is bigger up top than her bottom half; She has a large chest and smaller waist and hips. If you are a strawberry like Christina, dressing your bottom half with full skirts and wide trousers will balance out your shape. These ladies are also encouraged to wear bright colors on their bottom half, tunics, bias cut tops or dresses, open cardigans, “V” necks and single button coats.  They Should avoid shoulder pads, off the shoulder tops or dresses, skinny trousers, pencil skirts, puffy or rouched sleeves, big lapels, double breasted jackets and halter tops.

                  When I make it big, I would love to design for her!
