Christina Hendricks (born May 3, 1975) is an American actress best known for her starring role as Joan Holloway in the AMC cable television series Mad Men, and as Saffron in Fox's short-lived series Firefly.
Enjoying the festivities before the actual show, Hollywood celebs were out in full force on Friday night (September 21) to attend the Variety and Women in Film Pre-Emmy Party in Beverly Hills, CA.
The Scarpetta hosted spectacle boated some of Tinseltown’s most beautiful ladies including “Mad Men” siren Christina Hendricks, “New Girl” actress Zooey Deschanel, newly single "Parks and Recreation” funny woman Amy Poehler and “Breaking Bad” beauty Krysten Ritter.
Out for a cinematic-filled evening, Christina Hendricks and Elle Fanning were on hand for the “Ginger & Rosa” post premiere reception at the Toronto Film Festival on Friday (September 7).
While chatting it up with fellow film lovers, the “Mad Men” actress looked stunning in a black, full-length gown while the darling blonde opted for 70’s inspired purple pattern pant suit. The event was held at the AMC Storys in Toronto.
The “Mad Men” hottie donned a black velour pants suit and maroon heels as she strolled into the venue where she read the part of Carolyn Burnham, originally played by Annette Bening in the film version.
While the curvy red-headed "Mad Men" star covered herself up in a sheer-sleeved black blouse and pencil skirt, the "Hunger Games" hottie showed off her goods in a plunging snakeskin tank top and black skirt.
Though the ladies may play second fiddle to the macho ad execs of "Mad Men," two of the female stars (and Vincent Kartheiser) just nabbed significant pay raises.
Elizabeth Moss, who plays Peggy Olsen; January Jones, who plays Betty Francis; and Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell reached agreements with Lionsgate taking them through the final two seasons for the hit series. Deadline.com reports that the trio will be receiving bumps "well into six figures per episode."
