Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks may have caused a flash bulb frenzy when she turned up on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards last night in her dusty lilac Zac Posen gown, but the stylish star claims she doesn’t usually put too much thought into finding the perfect dress. “I just go with my instinct,” she told PEOPLE at the Governor’s Ball on Sunday night, which she swung by before making an appearance at Entertainment Tonight‘s Emmy party. “I don’t even really think about the dress I wear.” But despite her laid-back approach to the red carpet, the actress and newly-named face of London Fog, did admit that it was love at first when it came to Posen’s feathered frock. “I saw it in his collection, and I was in love with it,” revealed the actress, who was up for supporting actress in Mad Men. “I’ve been wanting to wear this dress, this color, for a long time. It just reminded me of Old Hollywood.” And as for fitting into the sultry gown, which seemed to hug Hendricks in all the right places? “All they had to do was tweak the shoulders a little bit to make sure they were the right length, and it was a perfect!” Tell us: What do you think of Christina Hendricks’ Zac Posen gown? –Gillian Koenig; reporting by Reagan Alexander and Jessica Wedemeyer

the dress is stunning. Love the color and the gathering at the waist. Very flattering and it looks great with her hair. A winner.

That dress looks fab – Go Christina! You are a wonderful role model! As for the odd comment about being uneven, that’s b/c those are real and it’s quite normal for people to not be exactly proportionate from side to side of the body…hands, feet, ears, etc.

To quote the great Duke Ellington, “you make that dress look good”. This woman would look beautiful in a potato sack.
