Does “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks have a fashion problem?
Yes, according to Scotland’s Daily Record, which explains that while it’s normal for Hollywood actresses to be “given amazing frocks to wear by high-profile designers keen for the free publicity,” Hendricks hasn’t had the same experience because she’s curvy.
“People have been saying some nice, wonderful things about me,” the paper quotes Hendricks as saying. “Yet not one designer in town will loan me a dress.”
She supposedly continues, “They only lend out a size 0 or 2. So I’m still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress.”
There’s just one not-so-small problem: Hendricks never spoke to the Daily Record, according to her rep.
(Not to mention the fact that another source tells us the paper is way off-base with what they claim to be the actress’ measurements.)
And one needn’t look any further than last weekend’s Emmys for proof that the Record’s claim of designer woes isn’t accurate.
“She had plenty of options for dresses,” her rep tells Gossip Cop, “and decided to partner with Zac Posen, who created the gown she wore to the Emmys on Sunday. She loved being able to collaborate with Zac.”
Adds the rep, Hendrick “looked beautiful and felt great the entire night.”
It’s a shame news outlets are trying to take that away from her.
Gossip Cop reached out to the Daily Record for a comment regarding Hendrick’s rep’s contention that the paper never spoke to her, but we haven’t received a response.
Guess they’re not speaking to us either.
