That’s right, this did happen. Here’s the exact quote, referring to the dress Christina wore at the Golden Globes:
Not pretty Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano’s exploding ruffle dress. (As one stylist said, â€œYou don’t put a big girl in a big dress. That’s rule number one.â€)
… says NY Times journalist Cathy Horyn, the author of the article Further reflections of a Golden “I”
Even more, the article was accompanied by a distorted image which featured (intentionally or accidentally) a much wider Christina Hendricks – see image below:
Note: The left image was originally posted by NY Times, the right one is the original.
After readers pointed out the photoshopped image, NY times updated the post, saying:
“The photo was slightly distorted inadvertently due to an error during routine processing.”
So perfectly-proportioned, clearly-at-a-healthy-weight Christina is a “big girl”. Not even a “curvy / voluptuous girl”, which has positive connotations, she’s big, people.
Thank you, NY Times, for that amazing piece of information.
