OK, so there are many many positive stories in the press at the moment which show the attitude to curves in the fashion world is changing...
Prada, the Italian label credited with inventing the cult of the skinny girl, has started to use curvier, womanly Victoria's Secret lingerie models on its catwalk. Marc Jacobs has vowed to make his clothes in bigger sizes, if only for a season or two.
But then the reality of the fashion world rears its ugle head!
'Not one designer will loan me a dress,' she told a Scottish newspaper. 'They only lend out a size zero or a size 2. So I'm still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress!'
Lawren Sample has been Hendricks' stylist for three years and has a constant battle to dress her stunning curvaceous figure. 'Most of the time Christina can't fit into samples. Sometimes she can get into it if it has a little stretch, but not often,' says Lawren.
'She's a woman, she's got a woman's body. But most actors these days, there's nothing to them - they're a clothes hanger'
Two of our most beautiful British actresses - Suranne Jones, who played Karen McDonald in Coronation Street, and Sarah Paris, who most recently appeared on screen in Mistresses, have also said that because they do not conform to the "standard size" they find it impossible to be dressed by any of the big designers.
The dress was stunning and, for me, she stole the show with her curvy figure showcased at its best. A woman who looks like a woman, most certainly not like a coat hanger.
