Corsets, lace, cleavage, and silk. Who better than Hendricks to model the new lingerie-as-outerwear trend?
I haven't had pay TV in a while so I haven't seen Mad Men, but I've definitely been aware of Christina Hendricks; it seems like she's become the favorite of a lot of web forums, even displacing (dare I say it?) Scarlett Johansson.
That said, the New York magazine cover doesn't exactly say "I'm bored with body talk" to me.
“It might sound silly,” she says, “but I didn’t realize I was so different. I was just oblivious. Sometimes I would go on an audition and someone would say something like, Girl, you’re refreshing! That was it.”
You didn't realize you had just enormous breasts before or after the breast enlargement surgery? I mean I love them, don't get me wrong, but you don't wake up one day at 14 and have these things bolted onto your chest.
On the surgery issue: I know plenty of women who were given racks bigger than that by god.
...the new lingerie-as-outerwear trend
There's very little we do that says more about us to strangers than the clothing we choose to put on our bodies. Unless you were dressed at gunpoint (or by mom) you're responsible for the message your clothing sends. You might appreciate it if everybody would pretend no message is being sent, but you just can't have that.
Joe Beese: "Advice to Ms. Hendricks: If you don't want people talking about your body all the time, stop posing for magazine covers in underwear."
oflinkey: FWIW, the guy over at Awful Plastic Surgery (and the sister site Good Plastic Surgery) thinks Hendricks' breasts aren't real. Who knows, though. But someone upthread asked for a citation. Take it cum granos salis.
KokuRyu: Women: you are either too fat or you are too thin. You can't win.
Someone wake me when we're talking about Mo'Nique's scantily-clad cover shots (ooh, or Helen Mirren's!), k? Because that might actually be interesting.
Others get defensive and say that when you wear a swimsuit, you're inviting that type of talk about your body.
