Mad for the girl

Christina Hendricks took a page out the Mad Men style book for her ELLE Style Awards outfit, wearing a vintage Carolina Herrera dress—and she got it on eBay.

The actress, who plays Joan Holloway on the 1960s ad-land drama, paired her multi-coloured dress with Solange Azagury-Partridge jewels.

Working on the 1960s ad-land drama won Hendricks the Best TV Actress award, and also influenced her sense of style. The show has been on a prolonged hiatus due to contract negotiations, but is set to return to UK screens in March. How does Hendricks feel about returning to Sterling Cooper Draper Price?

‘It was too much time away,’ she told ELLE. ‘We’re just excited to get back to the characters.’

And how does it feel to win an ESA?

’15 years ago I was a model in London, trying to find my next appointment, and now, to be recognised by ELLE Magazine... it’s pretty amazing,’ she said.
