Christina Hendricks In Jenny Packham – 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards

The 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre LA Live on Saturday evening.

Christina Hendricks opted to wear a Jenny Packham Fall 2012 gown.

I went back and forth as to whether I liked this gown and I concluded that I love the silhouette. Whoever is dressing Christina now, finally knows how to dress her body type.

What bothers me is the print. I find it far too busy especially with the addition of the overwhelming shoulder detail.

Could’ve been great, but sadly it’s a no for me.

    totally agree with you, FC. What I’d ditch is the shoulder detail.

    yes it’d be better without the shoulder flower. I think women with a heavy top part can be better off with cleaner silhouettes (no fuss) on the top.
    she’s very pretty, she has an enviable figure imo

    Agree completely, the shape is beautiful, but if it was all black or midnight blue etc it would have been stunning. Still, this is a massive improvement so we are getting somewhere.

    Way too busy. It makes her look huge.

      I agree.

        Sadly, I agree. The print is fussy and not flattering.

    I really can’t agree with you on that her stylist is dressing her the right way for her figure. I have a similar figure to Christina’s and I would never wear that, it’s way too busy and the shoulder flower really makes her bust look too big.

    I love the dress on the runway, but I think that this large (though beautiful) print would only work on some one tall and very slim, like Cate Blanchett. The print and the shoulder detail overwhelm Christina, although this is better than what she usually wears.

    I agree with everyone (a rare thing :)). I wonder how this would look in an irridescent peacock blue/green silk, sans the neck bow? Love the gown, though.

    I think the print breaks up the expanse of bosom in a very flattering way. Love the colors, glad the necktie piece of the detail was discarded.

    This still isn’t quite working for me. It isn’t terrible but it is far from great.

    I love the dress on her.
    I think most of you must be indulgent because christina has a silhouette apart in Hollywood. It must be difficult to dress when you have a voluptuous body without being vulgar and dated.

      I think it is unfair to assume that we are being indulgent. I think Christina has a great figure but I just don’t think most of the things she wears flatters it.

    The print and the bow detail aside, I totally agree about the silhouette – this is the most flattering cut for her body type I’ve seen on her. In a slight defense of the bow detail (or even the print) – it somewhat takes quite a bit of attention away from her bust that tends to dominate all of her looks.

    I actually like this gown on her. I think the print actually makes her breasts appear more manageable than most of her outfits. Also, it nips in nicely at the waist. I like this a lot.
