Emmy Awards 2011: Mad Men's sexiest secretary Christina Hendricks pours her bombshell curves into a glittering gown
By Daily Mail Reporter

She's flies the flag for curvy women and today Mad Men star Christine Hendricks didn't disappoint as she arrived at the Emmy Awards.

She had the crowd oohing and aahing as she sashayed down the red carpet in a jewel-encrusted gown with a plunging neckline by Johanna Johnson.

The 36-year-old says she immediately fell in love with the metallic design, saying: 'I thought it was so beautiful, it's the only one I tried on.'

She trimmed her look with Christian Louboutin shoes, a Judith Leiber clutch, and Palladium jewellery.

She was joined by her husband, Geoffrey Arend, who is best known for his role on the TV series Body of Proof.

Her series Mad Men received its fourth consecutive Emmy for best drama, staving off competition from the acclaimed HBO drama Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones.

While the show, set in the Sixties advertising world, gained the top drama gong, it couldn't pull honours for stars Jon Hamm or Elisabeth Moss.

Kyle Chandler was the surprise winner in the best drama actor category for the last season of Texas football drama Friday Night Lights, blocking odds-on favourites among his fellow nominees, including Hamm.

Julianna Margulies won top drama acting honours for The Good Wife.
