Christina Hendricks says "getting to wear beautiful fashion" is the best part of being an actress.

The Mad Men actress plays Joan Harris in the series that has captured the hearts of viewers partly as a result of the brilliant '60s-style outfits.

Christina's costumes require her to wear tight-fitting foundation garments to keep everything streamlined, but this hasn't put her off the red carpet.

“Getting to wear beautiful fashion is the most fun part of the job that has nothing to do with the job,” she revealed to Lucky magazine."L’Wren Scott is a go-to designer. [I'm] a fan of strapless dresses that are so well-constructed they don’t require a bra. Christian Siriano makes his dresses that way. It makes me feel so taken care of.”

Christina described the outfit she was wearing on the day of her interview. She says the J.Crew pencil skirt, black jacket and $19 shoes are all bargains she's particularly thrilled with.

“I got it [the jacket] at this cheap little store in Venice. It’s cut so well, the way it comes in at the waist, and it was like $20," she revealed. "[I got my shoes] from a Nine West outlet and they are so comfortable.”

Christina laughed that she does wear trousers as part of her off duty wardrobe on occasions. However the feminine dresser says she draws a line at sweat pants which she's sure would revolt her husband.

“All the time,” she insisted about wearing pants. "[My] current favourites are Imogene + Willie jeans, which I pair with a black turtleneck. [Sweatpants?] I can’t do that to my husband, not after just three years of marriage. At home, I put on a low-cut caftan, and he’s like, ‘Babe, you look great.’ Caftans are just the perfect solution to what to wear at home. I love Camilla Franks’, but I also get great vintage ones on eBay.”
