Christina Hendricks - Christina Hendricks: Mad Men influenced my style

Christina Hendricks says 'Mad Men' has changed her wardrobe.

The 37-year-old actress is a big fan of the clothes worn by her character Joan Harris in the advertising drama and says playing the glamorous role has taught her just how flattering pencil skirts are for her curvy frame.

She said: ''Definitely about having more confidence and trusting your decisions - and about pencil skirts, which I now have, like, 75 of. I was like, why didn't I know about this skirt before!''

Christina has learned how best to dress her figure and says there are always particular designers she will opt for.

She explained to the new issue of Flare magazine: ''There are definitely designers that I just love and I just know work really well with my figure.

''L'Wren Scott, Vivienne Westwood, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera. Those are designers that you'll always see me wear again and again.''

And the former model also admitted to having found some fashion perks with her frame.

She explained: ''It took having to be an actress to finally get to be shot by all the photographers that I so desperately wanted to work with as a model - Patrick Demarchelier, Walter Chin - but they were just shooting supermodels. I'd love to be shot by Steven Meisel.

''And I get to wear much prettier clothes than I used to and I really like that perk.''
