Celebrity Fashion Fusion: Outfit inspired by Christina Hendricks
Many women envy Christina Hendricks’ classic, curvy look, and with a trip downtown they can get that look at prices that won’t drive them mad.
Hendricks’ look caught the eyes of fashionistas starting in 2007 when she started playing the role of Joan Harris in AMC’s “Mad Men.” Since then, Hendricks’ curvaceous figure has served as inspiration to women who love her timeless style and don’t have stick-straight bodies.
Kieu’s, 738 Massachusetts St., has several options to replicate Hendricks’ style.
Kieu’s district manager Madeline Heck recently showed off an outfit that similar to a black floral, form-fitting dress Hendricks wore on the red carpet.
To mimic this look Heck recommends a high-waist black floral skirt paired with a black crop top.
The high-waist floral skirt, which you can purchase for $38, allows you to mix and match tops to get the most wears out of the skirt, Heck said.
“It’s pretty versatile, something you can change from day to night,” she said. “It’s more versatile than the dress that she’s wearing.”
Heck recommends the crop top with a dainty gold-chain necklace and ankle boots for a girls’ night out or date night.
Heck said the ankle boot, which looks to be a big trend this fall, fits in line with Hendricks’ style.
“She’s classic but edgy,” Heck said.
For a daytime look, Heck would pair the skirt with a slouchy T-shirt and flats. And Heck would pair the skirt with a blazer and camisole to create a professional look.
Heck said high-waist skirts look great on a variety of body types, and they give women the option to mix and match with whatever top works best with their figure.
“They are very flattering. You don’t have to be a size zero to wear it,” Heck said.
And you don’t have to be a size zero to make Christina Hendricks’ look work for you. Her curve-friendly style has made her a fashion inspiration to women throughout the nation.
Hendricks recently told Lucky magazine that she loves to show off her fashion sense.
“Getting to wear beautiful fashion is the most fun part of the job that has nothing to do with the job,” Hendricks said in a story on Luckymag.com.
You can get Hendricks look at Kieu’s for only $163, including shoes and jewelry. And don’t be afraid to mix and match your jewelry, shoes and tops to make the classic look your own.
