And the Media Distortion Continues...

Christina Hendricks (of Mad Men) may be known for her Golden Globes, but apparently she’s not round enough to fully warrant the label of “curvy” – at least it seems that way, considering how the NYTimes seems to have inflated her picture to better accompany a blog by writer Cathy Horyn in which she snarked “ Not pretty Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano’s exploding ruffle dress. (As one stylist said, “You don’t put a big girl in a big dress. That’s rule number one.”) In response to numerous comments about the obvious distortion, the NYT has since ran a statement denying deliberate photo manipulation, instead blaming it on an “error during routine processing.”

Oh, and inc ase you hadn’t heard yet, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, and Kate Hudson are all now “curvy,” too!

Excuse me but I need to go stick my wet fingers in an electric socket and try to make myself feel better.
