Red Carpet Re-Do: Christina Hendricks Dresses Like A Gothic Milkmaid

April 16, 2010 by Marisa Siegel
shefinds | Style

It’s hard to argue that anyone in Hollywood right now is sexier than Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks.  The redheaded siren usually knows how to perfectly accentuate her famous curves and make every outfit look fabulous.  Unfortunately, on her most recent red carpet, that was hardly the case.  We’re here to show Christina how to wear ruffles without getting eaten alive by them.

What She Did Wrong:

  • The fabric of the dress and the awkward layering of the ruffles, oddly reminded us that we need to take out the garbage
  • Ruffles should never take over the entire dress–less is more
  • When you’re head to toe in black throw on some kind of colorful accessories so you don’t look like you’re headed to a funeral after the red carpet

What She Should Have Done:

Ruffles is one of the most elegant ways to dress for an evening event, but try to keep them to a minimum like with this mini number by French Connection ($168).  Gold cut out heels by Cynthia Vincent ($162.25) add some glam to this LBD.

Shine throughout the entire night in these adorable gold star earrings from Marc by Marc Jacobs ($58).  If you feel like you need some more texture or just love ruffles as much as Christina does, try this ruffled flower clutch by Sondra Roberts ($98).
