Joannie's too curvy for London Fog

I really loves me some photoshop fail, but the one posted today by Sociological Images really takes the cake... or rather "cheesecake":

That's Christina Hendricks of Mad Men, but you can be forgiven for not recognizing her, because — both in reality and on TV — she looks like this:

That's right! Not even the "Sexiest Woman Alive" (according to Esquire) has a good enough body, according to some Art Director and/or client who is missing out on the renaissance of curviness. (Of which Ms. Hendricks is a reluctant champion.)

With all the PR problems advertisers are having lately with photo manipulation of women's bodies, it's ironic that they were so obsessed with "improving" on nature that they ended up taking away the very attributes that made their expensive spokesmodel — in many people's opinion, the Marilyn of the Now — so very talked about.

And yes, Christina Hendricks is first and foremost a great actor. But curves still rock.


  1. Unbelievable! Not even men have hips that small. Although some certainly have moobs that big. ;-)
