In the November issue of Harper's Bazaar, Christina Hendricks slams New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn.
Back in January, Horyn commented on the peach Christian Siriano gown she wore to the Golden Globes, saying:
"Not pretty Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano's exploding ruffle dress. (As one stylist said, 'You don't put a big girl in a big dress.')"
Turns out the photo Cathy criticized was distorted and eventually issued a correction, but Christina was still offended.
The Mad Men actress told the magazine:
"To say something like that and put it next to a distorted picture discredits you entirely. And it hurt my feelings. I thought that dress was stunning. I stand by that dress to this day. I had just gotten back from my honeymoon, and I felt beautiful in those pictures. I was smiling and beaming, and I felt like a goddess. It's a celebration, and I'm here because the show I work on is being recognized as excellent work. And you're going to tell everyone in the world that I was wearing a shitty dress? Let me go to a party and wear my pretty dress!"
You go, Christina!
Way to stick up for yourself!
