Christina Hendricks Glitters in a Stunning Johanna Johnson Creation…

As the stars walked the red carpet at the 2011 Emmy Awards on Sunday night, it was nice to see a gown from one of our favourite Australian designers make an appearance on Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. And what a glittering appearance it was! 

Created by Sydney designer Johanna Johnson, Christina Hendricks looked like an absolute goddess in the silk satin figure-hugging dress, embellished with Swarovski stones, glass and an intricate beading pattern designed especially to accentuate Hendricks' famous curves. 

According to reports, the actress recently listed a Johanna Johnson beaded cape as one of her favourite fashion items, and after Johanna Johnson heard this, she set about creating a one-off custom gown especially for Hendricks in the hopes that she might consider wearing the gown on the red carpet. Johnson's leap of faith paid off, with Hendricks shining in the stunning eight kilogram gown on the night.

Known as an icon of old Hollywood style, the sparkly Johanna Johnson gown was the perfect choice for Hendricks, and for vintage loving brides-to-be, there's a number of similar gowns available for purchase at the Johanna Johnson online store.
