Christina Hendricks in polka dots & floral in NYC: tragic, top-heavy or amazing?

Good God, Christina Hendricks. How are you still upright?!!? These are some new photos of Christina and her husband (the Nerd King) Geoffrey Arend in NYC for the after-party of Everything Is Ours (a play). I like Christina’s newish bob haircut but that’s about it. Her outfit is crazy – polka-dot blouse with a floral skirt? Honey, no. And while I envy her waist, it seems like she gets more and more top-heavy with every year that passes. The seventh season of Mad Men is just going to have Joan Holloway played by a gigantic boob.

Christina continues to score roles beyond Mad Men too. She was previously cast in the adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places as a stripper, but she’s been upgraded to the more significant role of “the mother”. Charlize Theron plays the daughter all grown up – does Charlize look like she could be Christina’s daughter? Eh. I mean, I’m glad that Christina has gotten a better role and that Hollywood likes her so much. But realistically, no, I don’t think Christina looks like she could be Charlize’s mom. You can read more about the film here.

Additionally – and these quotes are nearly a month old – did you know that Christina wants a part on Game of Thrones? OMG. GIVE HER TO TYRION LANNISTER. Christina said: “I want to be on ‘Homeland’ because I love the suspense of it… But I also want to be on ‘Game of Thrones.’ I want to wear pelts and horns and ride around on horseback.” Seriously, I could see her on Game of Thrones very easily. And it would be EPIC. Instead of Tyrion… maybe give her to the Khaleesi? Christina needs to be around dragons.

    I love the idea behind her outfit but with those breasts it seems hard to execute. I don’t think I could do any better if I had a body like hers; it seems impossible to dress.

  2. j.eyre says:

    Her make-up is pretty.

    Don’t we all need more dragons in our lives?

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    These pics make me hug my c-cups just a bit tighter.

    Honestly, she’s gorgeous but I don’t envy having to dress up a rack that big–it must really limit what you can wear.
    Still, the face on her…..

  4. Valentine says:

    Her norks are now comedy big – if Kim KarTRASHhian has tits that big she would be slammed for her implants – why does everyone believe that Christina’s lady bits are real?????

  5. Jen says:

    It was fine when I thought those were natural – I have giant tatas too and understand how hard it can be to find nice clothes.

    But now that I know she had implants, wtf? Why would anyone want them to be that big?

  6. Dawn says:

    I really like her but when you have large breasts some things just never look good and this is just one of those times. I had breasts like that after having my son and hauled it around for a long time and finally had a reduction. Best thing I ever did!

  7. HK9 says:

    Jesus take the wheel….is this woman allergic to v neck tops???? The colours are lovely, but the polka dots make her look like the young man in that commercial who has “Skiddles disease”. Just NO.

    Go to you local book store, get the book “Marilyn in Fashion”, go to your nearest seamstress, hand the book to her and do what she tells you. Then, you will avoid the fashion travesty that continues to follow you.

  8. Sisi says:

    that top is all kinds of wrong. I hate the neckline, the shoulders and how it’s darted below the bust. Also the fabric is ugly and it might be impossible to wear a decent heavyduty bra under that, so the boobs look kinda sad.
    The skirt is nice though, but bot in combo with a white polkadot shirt.

  9. DeltaJuliet says:

    Years ago I would have envied those boobs, but now that I’ve got 34DDD’s (thanks, kids) I can’t even imagine hauling those monsters around. I can’t even stand what I’ve got.

  10. pao la says:

    No no no. She doesn’t look good. I couldn’t imagine life with those big breasts..If it was me I would seriously consider a breast reduction. I’m sure big boobs are gorgeous but i couldn’t be happy without being able to run, jump, ride a bycicle or wear only some kind of shirts or gowns.

    • Jen says:

      Um big boobs don’t prevent you from running or jumping or riding a bicycle (wtf do boobs have to do with riding a bike??).

    • *unf* Joan Jett says:

      With a properly fitted bra everything is possible – running, jumping, bike riding, … ;)

      Gowns however are not that easy. But that is not the busty woman’s fault, it’s the clothing industry which ignores people with bodies they don’t consider “normal”.

      • Jaded says:

        See comment above, and yes, I did have expensive properly fitted bras. Try buying off the rack suits or bathing suits. The bottom would be falling off me in order to accommodate the old boobs. I had 2 lbs taken off each breast. So you either spend huge bucks having everything custom made (which I could NOT afford) or spend less money getting things altered. Either way getting a reduction gave me a new life (or my old one back before boobzillas took over).

      • *unf* Joan Jett says:

        I am an H-Cup myself. So if you write, that you still had pain “bouncing”, chances are your bras weren’t really fitted. There should be no pain!
        Also if you were in need for two bras, the bras were not that supportive on their own? Which makes them bad choice for big boobs.

        This how to fit yourself:

        I personally hate minimizer bras. They don’t really minimize, just make the chest look very wide and flat as they push the breast tussue down and to the sides. I want my girls up and round :)

        “Elomi” is a great brand for super busty women, for example. Their range is huge and their bras are like freaking armors! But of cause they give a better shape. Plus reasonable price policy.

      • anon33 says:

        I think the rest of your body plays into it. I am built like Jessica S/Kim K, short and curvy, and I had FIVE pounds taken out of each boob when I had my reduction. There was no item of clothing in the world-no bra, no shirt, no dress-that fit me properly, no matter the cost, and no matter how much it was fitted or altered after the fact. So I’m wondering if being a short person made it worse? My sister has the same boobs, but she is 5’10 and slim, so she doesn’t have the same problems dressing her body.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I have to share my bra excitement!!!!!! :D

        I just bought a strapless bra that i have great hope for after years of disappointment. It is a Wacoal Red Carpet strapless bra, and the reviews online from women with 40DDDs and 36Fs made me think it would work well for my Ds. I haven’t worn it out yet, but it fit so well. The cups don’t just support on the bottom, they are shaped in this way where it actually comes up and around your boobs individually (no mono-boob). I was bouncing all over my house and so far it seems to work! Will wear in public with a dress this weekend.

      • Jaded says:

        Each woman is different. I did get fitted and still had pain when I ran, did aerobics, etc. I’m 5’6″ and a size 8 from the hips down, but was a size 14-16 from the waist up to accommodate the boobzillas. Long story short, the neck and shoulder pain, bra strap grooves, chafing under my boobs, clothes not fitting properly, balance issues, just finally got to me and I did the reduction. Best decision ever (except leaving my ex but that’s another story…)

  11. Azurea says:

    Girl needs to have bunion surgery. My feet hurt just looking at hers.

  12. Mabs says:

    Yikes, they’re taking over the page. Bad dress. And they also look sort of rectangular like if I did an awesome karate chop, I’d break the plank of wood in half.

  13. pretty says:

    i can’t imagine what it’d be like to have those dangling in your chest.. my boobs are literally non-existent. like..i just don’t have fat on my chest at all. completely flat. i never wear bra cause i don’t have chest fats to support lol..

  14. Mandy says:

    Don’t get me wrong, I love Christina. She is gorgeous and so, so talented (Mad Men would not be the same without her!). But I feel back pain just looking at those gigantic boobs! I used to have very large breasts, but had a reduction two years ago. It was the best decision I ever made!

  15. emily says:

    Just a technicality…the mother in Dark Places dies when Charlize Theron’s character is 6 or 7 (that’s not a spoiler, you know that from the beginning). So Christina Hendricks is playing the mother in flashbacks, she would be way too young to play the mother to someone Charlize Theron’s age.

  16. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Aw, I’m not going to slate her, she can’t help her shape and if she wants to cover up top to show off/emphasize her skirt there’s not a lot she can do. I guess a darker top would help, but she is constantly in high necked/black stuff, it must get boring. I used to think they were fake too, but lately I’m more inclined to think she’s someone who gains a lot in her boobs, it does happen. I’m not quite so afflicted but with a weight gain of 15-20 lbs I go up three cup sizes easily, and she has definitely gained weight since her younger days that people point out w/the smaller girls.. I just like her so much I guess I don’t want to think she would be stupid enough to get implants that huge! If Mad Men hadn’t come along I think she would have really struggled getting work in anything serious.

    • Jessica says:

      I think she must have had implants at one point. In all the pics I’ve seen of her before she became well-known she was a large B cup/small C cup at most. Then when she started getting some decent acting gigs she’d shot up a good 5 cup sizes, and at that time she was still quite thin. I think she got big but not ridiculous implants, then gained a bit of weight and ended up with Dolly Parton-esque boobs.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        Huh, I guess I never thought of implants getting bigger with weight gain, I guess that’s possible too! I would have them taken out if I got that big, I just don’t think I could live with them! Esp. as she seems to be happy at her current weight,but maybe she equates them with her success, who knows. I still like her regardless, I guess I just hope she’s natural as she is a positive role model for not being skinny, accepting yourself, etc. My good friend had a boob job and tbh I think they look awful and dwarf her frame, I would never say that to her though!

  17. Amanda says:

    That outfit does not do her any favours.

  18. Jessica says:

    She wears so much padding and I don’t know why. When you see her in pap pics in jeans and a T-shirt she looks good, boobs are still big but not so crazy out of proportion. But on the red carpet she either stuffs them into something 10 times too small so they get hiked up to her chin, or she wears an unsupportive, heavily padded bra that makes her figure look matronly.

    My boobs are bigger than hers and I manage to find bra’s and clothes which look good, so it amazes me that she get’s it so wrong every single time. I’m starting to think she’s just doing it for the attention. She looks amazing on Mad Men, so it’s not like she doesn’t have a frame of reference as to what works for her, yet here we are.

  19. Frida_K says:

    She looks bigger every time I see a picture of her.

    On the one hand, maybe they are real…I come from a family of busty women and, although I am the flatter-chested one in my family I still gain any weight I get in the chest first. It’s kind of funny (until it’s not) but at least I know when to get back on a diet…as soon as I look like a pair of walking basketballs, it is TIME.

    But hers seem like she is (a) naturally busty and (b) enhanced by implants too.

    Why would anyone do that to herself?


  20. Crabcake says:

    Those are not fake boobs, if they are she must have had some procedure where they attached real boobs to her chest.

  21. Penelope says:

    She’s a stunningly beautiful woman but why on earth did she go for absurdly gigantic implants? They are ridiculous.

  22. CTgirl says:

    This is a horrible outfit for her figure. It emphasizes everything way too much. Tragic look.

  23. Teeny says:

    I think she’s very pretty, but it seems like it would be painful carting those boobies around. I’m guessing she got implants at one point, gained some weight, and now to add more emphasis to them, she wears super padded bras. If that’s what she likes, more power to her. Either way, I’m just glad she looks womanly, and not gaunt and skeletal.

  24. rebecca says:

    She always dresses badly. I don’t think it’s because of her big chest, she just has bad taste and no style.

  25. Rita says:

    I have to go with “tragic-top-heavy” on this one. I’m not sure what one is to do with a rack like that but that dress is not it.

  26. aenflex says:

    If it were me, I’d get a reduction. She looks like a caricature. Real or fake, it doesn’t really matter. Just looks bad to me.

  27. TheCountess says:

    The outfit is terrible, but honestly, she needs better foundation garments as well.

  28. Karen says:

    This outfit would have totally worked if the top was a v-neck.

  29. Diane says:

    She is gorgeous but needs a boob reduction.

  30. madchen says:

    You have to remember that even though she’s large breasted, how she looks in photos is often dependent on lighting, where the camera is, how she’s standing,etc…all of this affects the look of the subject. Even the fabric and cut of the blouse, which may not be great for someone her size, may look far worse than it is in person because of how/where she’s being photographed.

  31. d says:

    I think the outfit is horrible and dumpy but the fitting is bad and not right shape for her chest. she has nice skin and and pretty face, and i love curvy not skinny bodies, but I don’t find her extremely appealing. most the time her makeup look clownish too.

  32. Maggie says:

    Personally I think she likes her big boobs. But she looks like a cartoon character to me. Pretty though.

  33. Lauren says:

    I love the polka dot + floral combo.

    You gossips are so boringly safe when it comes to fashion sometimes.

  34. Sara says:

    Tyrion’s first wife maybe? I’m trying to think of role she would be right for there…

  35. Mel says:

    Good. Grief.

    However, I don’t think elegance is her priority. I think she simply loves emphasising her breasts, even if it is out of all proportion – no matter what she says.

  36. Amy says:

    Oh she’s playing Patty Day, the mother now. That’s cool…actually pictured her when reading the book!

  37. Grenada Red says:

    Those look like pregnancy boobs.

  38. TherapyCranes says:

    I have the same proportions as her and I would never ever wear a shirt like that. Her breasts look so wide and unflattering. Terrible top.

  39. anet says:

    I’m shocked that she’s with a man like that. Shockingly shocked. Wow. Love is amazing. I wish I had a mis matchy hottie. Her lady bits needs needs to pair with Hamm and his bacon bits ;) . But only on television.

  40. raincoaster says:

    That outfit is entirely too “Gramma’s still gettin’ some” for my liking.

  41. JibberJabber says:

    That’s the best I’ve seen her look from the neck up in ages! Outside if Mad Men, her make us is usually too garish or harsh, but here it looks lovely. Blush is a little but heavy, but, overall, I’ll take it!

    Don’t live the outfit, but I choose to focus on the progress up above

  42. Dalovelee says:

    I’m a 38 DD and my friend who works in fashion advised me to get better bras ie Victoria Secret NOT THOSE GRANNY BRAS and wear V neck form with spandex blend tops … A scoop neck does not work such as hers and yes cinch the belt to accentuate your waist. Trying to hide your chest always does the opposite so work with your large cup sizes ! Ok so I did learn not to buy button blouses and moo moo dresses

  43. CoolWhipLite says:

    She’s pretty, but she must have back pain. When I look at her, I just think about discomfort. She looks like she has a toddler stuffed into her top.
