NYT blogger calls Christina Hendricks fat; posts digitally widened photo of her; gets slammed

Anytime NYT gets slammed - even a NYT blogger - it's a feel good story!

Non widened image of Christina at the Golden Globes:

She looks fantastic! I'm a Christina Hendricks fan: she was born to fill out a dress.

Re the Golden Globes dress, my comments at Webutante and here:
It was a Hollywood event, and she wore a Hollywood dress. I like it when actresses have fun dressing glamorously and being photographed. It's a campy occasion, and actresses ought have fun with it. How many times in life do you get to dress up your best body and face in maximum glamour? Christina enjoyed it, and I liked that.


one-woman campaign to return female body concept to a glorious natural state.

Beloved Emjay, tasked with reeling me in when I've gone too far, quibbled w/my opinion re "natural state":
If you think those boobs [and hair] are "natural" I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you!

I do think those boobs are natural, soo ... about that bridge: is it a good deal?

This woman is a tour de force of femininity.... I can see Greg's attraction and think it and she's definitely got it goin'on. The ruffles work for rather than against the total package.

Having said that, she's a man's choice and wouldn't be mine though I do think she's fetching and clearly enjoying herself.

"Tour de force of femininity". Love it.

Popeater has the current story:
'Mad Men' starlet Christina Hendricks drew lots of eyeballs -- and Internet comments -- thanks to her dress at the Golden Globes earlier this month. Flaunting her curvaceous figure and a whole lotta cleavage, Hendricks' dress prompted one blogger for the New York Times to say: "You don't put a big girl in a big dress," which caused an uproar in the comments section and across the Web. Well, now Hendricks' husband is fighting back, calling the comments "ridiculous."

During the Globes, New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn posted a digitally widened photo of Hendricks, saying: "You don't put a big girl in a big dress. That's rule number one". She later said that the photo was mistakenly distorted, and it was replaced on the page.

Geoffrey Arend, who tied the knot with Hendricks last October, tells PEOPLE he "was just upset about the whole Golden Globes dress thing. I thought she looked so gorgeous. And that New York Times blogger saying that... It's so ridiculous."

Arend goes on to say the best part of the whole fracas "was seeing the entire internet come after that blogger. That was really cool. It was the first time I saw just a solid block of 'You're crazy! What's wrong with you? You should be ashamed of yourself!' [in the comments.] And honestly, the Grey Lady should be ashamed of themselves to print a picture like that, that they widened!"

Hendricks' gown was designed by 'Project Runway' winner Christian Siriano.
