Mad for Mad Men?

If there was every a candidate for a modern day bombshell, it would have to be the gloriously curvy Christina Hendricks (left), who plays Mad Men’s Joan Holloway, office manager and  head of the secretarial pool at Sterling Cooper, the advertising agency the show centres around.

In Season Three which starts tonight (BBC4, 10pm), Joan may become Mrs Harris, but hopefully won’t lose any of her sassiness and sex appeal.

The red-headed actress works the early 1960s wardrobe of the series to perfection. If you’ve never watched, tune in anyway for the costumes alone.

For a comedy set in the advertising world, have a look at British bombshell Diana Dors as Janice Blake Briggs, wife of Sutton Advertising Agency bigwig, Marshall Briggs, in 1958’s I Married A Woman .

Check out the original trailer at TCM!
