hendricks-emmyMAD Men star Christina Hendricks stole the show at the Emmy Awards revealing, figure-hugging number by Johanna Johnson.


But the 36-year-old star hasn't always been the glamorous Hollywood beauty she is today.

Her super-curvy Mad Men character Joan Harris spring-boarded her to worldwide fame (and Mad Men received its fourth consecutive Emmy for best drama at the Emmys) but as our exclusive pictures show, she wasn't always a global sex bomb!

The pictures in our gallery were taken in Glasgow, Scotland at a small convention for fans of the little-known sci-fi TV series Firefly in 2001.

Christina Hendricks starred as a space con-artist called Saffron in the series, set in the year 2517.

The cavernous cleavage and sofa-sized boobs are certainly there – but her trademark 50s style, figure-hugging, ultra glamour is decidedly absent.

Just weeks after these pics were taken Mad Men would hit the screens and the sassy, sexy Joan Harris would become a TV icon catapulting Hendricks to international acclaim.

By her own admission Christina Hendricks says she felt invisible before Mad Men.

But the star, whose curves measure 39D-30-39, has since become a role model in the battle against size zero.

Her boobs have even been credited with sparking a rush for breast enhancement ops in Britain.

But she says it's still tough for a curvy woman to look glamorous.
She said: “It is difficult come awards season, and I need to find a gown to walk down the red carpet in, and there are only size zeros and size twos available.

“Then it becomes downright annoying because all these designers are saying, "We love Mad Men, we love Christina, but we won’t make her a dress."'
