“It kind of hurt my feelings at first,” she says. 'Anytime someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous, you get really self-conscious. I was working my butt off on the show, and then all anyone was talking about was my body!'
You can see why all the focus on how big the chest, how narrow the waist, how round the hips could drive an actor—anyone—insane, but people were only noticing Christina Hendricks’s body because they were finally noticing Christina Hendricks...'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.'
And it’s not Hendricks’s fault that she’s come to everyone’s attention as an actress at a time when bodies are very much an issue—if not the issue—as far as fashion is concerned. There are the various attempts by fashion cities like São Paulo and Milan to police model weight; there are press conferences, BMI restrictions, mandatory turkey sandwiches backstage at every show. But lately there have also been baby steps taken toward the (unfortunately) radical idea that looking good need not involve so much rejection of the naturally occurring female shape. Glamour has begun to mix models of various sizes into its regular editorial shoots. A recent issue of V concerned itself with shape, pointing out that clothes—even fashion clothes—can look good on differently sized people...
...As for the body question, she’ll answer it when asked, but mostly it bores her. 'It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth,' she says. 'Back when I was modeling, if someone said "I’m fasting," I would say, "Can’t we talk about something else?"'

Here is to Christina embracing her own hourglass body and its unique beauty, reminiscent of Botticelli's women and Hollywood's golden era. The important tip here is that no matter what your body shape or type, embrace it. Learn to love your curves or lack thereof, they are what make you unique and stand out from everyone else.

In honor of Emily's pure passion and penchant for wearing white lace, I'm highlighting one of my favorite white lace bras. When I look at this Eberjey India Lace Bralette, it's easy to imagine Emily at her window, peeking through the sheer curtains at her neighbors below, who just wanted a quick look at the unconventional, reclusive poetess.
Whether you're in a relationship or single this Valentine's Day, anyone can appreciate Emily's connection with love and passion.
Wild Nights -- Wild Nights!
Were I with thee
Wild Nights should be
Futile -- the Winds --
To a Heart in port --
Done with the Compass --
Done with the Chart!
Rowing in Eden --
Ah, the Sea!
Might I but moor -- Tonight --
~ Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
