Mad Men's Christina Hendricks Tells Harper's Bazaar That She Inspired Karen Elson's Trademark Red Hair

Christina Hendricks Reveals How Karen Elson Became a Redhead

>> Long before she was playing Mad Men's Joan Holloway, Christina Hendricks was modeling in London in the mid-'90s for Dazed & Confused and Hussein Chalayan. "Oh, I have a story for you," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I was in Milan, and you would see the same girls at castings. There was one girl — she was like, 'I can't get any work. I'm so sick of this, I'm ready to quit. I love your hair color. What do you color your hair with?' and I was like, 'Oh, it's red. Here's my formula.' It was Karen Elson. A couple of weeks later, she had bright red hair . . . Sorry, Karen, but you did ask about my hair color. Then I saw her on the cover of Italian Vogue, and the rest is history!" Hendricks laughs: "Karen is amazing. I'm such an admirer of hers." [Harper's Bazaar]
