Our favorite lady, Christina Hendricks, covers Lucky's August issue, and inside she dishes on dressing her figure (uh, does it sound like she's launching a swimsuit line?), her signature red 'do and prepping for the paparazzi.

On dressing her famous curves: "I have to be careful about my proportions and keep it simple," says Hendricks. "What works for me is structure and something that shows my waist."

On her least favorite outfit: "It's really hard to find a bathing suit if you have breasts," she says. "You either get smooshed down or there's no support. My husband and I have sketched out designs."

On prepping for the paparazzi and fashion critics before a red carpet event: "I try to remain calm and remind myself that this is a fun, lovely event."

On her go-to designers when stepping out on the red carpet: "Vivienne Westwood for drama, L'Wren Scott for her perfect tailoring and body consciousness and Zac Posen for whimsy."

On why Hendricks, a natural blonde, dyed her hair at 10: "I was obsessed with Anne of Green Gables, so I wanted red hair," she says. "My mom said, 'I'll throw a rinse on it.'"

On how she's integrated some of the Mad Men style to her own wardrobe: "I collect animal bracelets. I got my first one off the Mad Men set; they let me keep a horse cuff I fell in love with."
