Christina Hendricks lands her dream role as a model for Vivienne Westwood

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, whose curvaceous figure has won her an army of male fans, has landed her dream role: modelling for British designer Vivienne Westwood.

Christina, 35, who plays office manager Joan Holloway in the U.S. series, will be showing off Vivienne’s latest jewellery collection.

‘I had such a fun day trying on all Vivienne’s new collection,’ Christina told me when we met up at Harvey Weinstein’s pre-Bafta awards party at the Almada Bar and Club in London’s Mayfair.

‘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 lovely thing now is that I can borrow them and they fit so well, unlike some designer clothes.’

Christina, who stars with Pierce Brosnan in the new film I Don’t Know How She Does It, won’t be at the Oscars later this month.

‘I am not nominated so I’ll be watching at home in my PJs,’ she added.
