But even Mattel had to tone down the Mad Men character's curves for the collectible line
Here’s a lady to break Ken’s plastic heart.
Christina Hendricks, known for flaunting her va-va-voom figure on Mad Men, has been transformed, appropriately enough, into a Barbie doll. The $75 collectible is part of Mattel’s show-inspired line that includes company partner Roger Sterling, the dapper Don Draper and fashionable wife Betty.
Hendricks’s doll captures the redheaded office manager Joan Holloway’s coiffed hairdo, fitted skirt and signature accessory: a pen necklace. One notable difference, however: Not even Barbie could compete with Holloway’s curves. This doll appears much less buxom than her on-screen inspiration.
