Christina Hendricks

On Mad Men, Hendricks’ 1960’s curves leave men drooling and women running for their corsets. So, it’s no surprise that Esquire named her “The Best-Looking Woman in America." Still, it’s not just male readers who crush on the 35 year-old, red-headed bombshell. Hendricks told Marie Claire that, during the show’s first season, a female fan actually thanked her, saying, “’Watching you has made me proud of my body.” “I thought, ‘What an amazing thing for someone to say!’ To make anyone feel good about themselves makes me feel good.”

Why we love her: We worship her come-hither curves for making us believe that we don’t need the hips of a 12-year-old boy to feel attractive.
