Christina Hendricks has been dubbed "the embodiment of beauty" by legendary fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.
Christina Hendricks, the 35-year-old American actress and star of 'Mad Men', is the "perfect model" for Vivienne Westwood's latest range, according to the designer herself, reports the UK's Daily Telegraph.Hendricks has risen to prominence in the fashion world since appearing as 'Joan Holloway' in the hit HBO series and she has signed up to be the new face of Westwood's latest jewellery range. The actress has been complimentary of the 69-year-old's output in the past, saying, "She is my favourite designer. As a young girl I would cut out pictures of her dresses from magazines, although I was never able to afford them. Even now I only have one in my closet". The new collection combines both couture and commercial pieces inspired by nature and features symbols of paganism such as the acorn and the oak tree. Hendricks says it was "a great honour" to represent the label and Westwood was equally praising, saying, "Christina is the embodiment of beauty and we were delighted to have been able to involve her with this new jewellery collection. She has proved to be the perfect model for the campaign"
Christina Hendricks is currently filming the comedy movie 'I Don't Know How She Does It' with Kelsey Grammer and Olivia Munn. The film, directed by Douglas McGrath, follows the story of a finance executive who is the breadwinner for her husband and two kids. It is scheduled to hit cinemas in 2012.
