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.

Romance seemed to be in the air Saturday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles as stars and their spouses showed their sweet affection for each other.
Kevin Bacon was a bundle of nerves before his name was announced as best male actor in a TV movie or miniseries for his role in HBO's Taking Chance, but wife Kyra Sedgwick kept him looking his best. How? "I had to blot his face a little," she admitted to PEOPLE at the afterparty.
Mad Men star Christina Hendricks's new husband, Geoffrey Arend, was clearly his wife's biggest fan. "I feel like the luckiest man ever. She's such a cutie pie," he raved. "When Michael C. Hall said 'I want to thank my wife for wearing that dress,' I feel that way every single awards show." Hendricks agreed, telling PEOPLE, "He's been feeling me all night."

Christina Hendricks married fiancé Geoffrey Arend at Il Buco restaurant in New York on Sunday, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The redheaded Hendricks, 34, and actor Arend, 31, were engaged earlier this year after being introduced by her Mad Men costar Vincent Kartheiser. Hendricks plays the voluptuous Joan on the show.
The bride wore a Carolina Herrera ivory fils coupe gown, and the couple couple exchanged platinum wedding bands made by Tacori. "The rings are simple and lovely – so much like Christina and Geoffrey," says Tacori rep Michelle Chila. Arend's engraved ring matches her petite platinum ring with two rows of pave-set diamonds.

Mad Men's January Jones thinks costar Christina Hendricks looks great on her new diet – but hopes it doesn't cause her to lose one of her best assets.
"I think she looks beautiful. Her body is amazing," Jones, 31, said at the Entertainment Tonight/PEOPLE Emmy after-party. "My only advice is to not go too far, because if she loses her curves it will be a very sad day."
But as for what soon-to-be-wed Hendricks's regimen is, Jones can't help you – it's still a secret to her.

Hendricks, who plays sexy redheaded secretary Joan Holloway on the Emmy-nominated AMC series, tells September's Esquire (on sale Aug. 11) that she loves how her character makes libidos rise.
"I've had people say to me, 'My husband and I watch it and we always have sex afterwards,'" says the actress, 34, who is marrying actor Geoffrey Arend on Oct. 11. "I think it's really hot that the show stirs up naughty things."

Hendricks, meanwhile, said of her bridal gown: "I'm wearing Carolina Herrera. It was the first dress I tried on and it was magnificent."
