Christina Hendricks Harper's BazaarChristina Hendricks redefines sexy in every episode of 'Mad Men,' as she lends her curves to the role of Joan Harris. This time around, Hendricks leaves the pencil skirts behind as she drips with jewels in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar in a sultry shoot by photographer Terry Richardson.

Hendricks didn't quite realize that she would become the poster girl for women with curves when she first started 'Mad Men.'

Hendricks reminiscences about the show's first season. Out to dinner with her husband, Geoffrey Arend, a fan approached her and said, "'Excuse me, I just want to tell you that I watch your show, and you make me feel better about myself. I am a curvy woman, and you've made me feel sexy and beautiful.' I got teary eyed." Christina tears up again at the memory. "I remember Geoffrey saying, 'That's what you're doing for people. That's amazing.'"
