She doesn’t have too much in common with her MAD MEN character JOAN HOLLOWAY, but actor CHRISTINA HENDRICKS has taken a major style tip from her on screen alter ego.

“Wear pencil skirts,” she told PEOPLE.

“I have a fantastic black fishtail one from Banana Republic that I’ve been wearing for years.”

Admitting she’ll splurge on “a truly beautiful dress, because even if it’s expensive, it’s a whole outfit,” the curvaceous star said she lusts after designs from L’WREN SCOTT and DOLCE & GABBANA.

But she’s not just into fashion: her beauty routine includes LA MER moisturizer, BENEFIT erase paste concealer, twice yearly OLE HENRIKSEN facials (“My skin glows for two months afterward,” she remarked of her visits) and PREMIER FIGUIER by L’ARTISAN PARFUMEUR.

“My friends are always like, ‘Oh yeah, we knew you were coming,’” she said of her signature fragrance. “Not that I wear that much of it!”

But CHRISTINA revealed that it’s her hair that requires the majority of her attention. Naturally a dark blonde, she hits the salon “every six weeks” to maintain her colour. Not that she minds.

“I have always felt sassier as a redhead. I don’t even know what my real colour would look like at this point.”
