EXCLUSIVE: Christina Hendricks is the Face of Vivienne Westwood's Palladium Jewelry

Updated

Greg Williams for Palladium Alliance International

In her newest role, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks bares her heart as the face of Vivienne Westwood’s ‘Get a Life’ Palladium Jewelry Collection. In conjunction with The Palladium Alliance International, Westwood created a line of environmentally-conscious pieces made entirely of the lightweight precious metal. “I admire that Vivienne uses her designs to inspire change,” Hendricks, a lifelong Westwood fan, says of the line, which features symbols of hope including trees, acorns and hearts. “As Palladium is a naturally white metal, the pieces really sparkle under the lights,” she continues. “I cannot wait to wear them on the red carpet!” And the feeling is mutual, with Westwood proffering, “Christina is the embodiment of beauty and we were delighted to have been able to involve her with this new jewelry collection.” Westwood’s husband and collaborator, Andreas Kronthaler, agrees. “She’s got something, this American sweetheart beauty … you’d do anything to go out with her,” he told PEOPLE at the line’s recent launch party in London. “She’s magnificent — a bit like Marilyn Monroe. In front of the camera there’s something very sensual.” Available this month at Vivienne Westwood boutiques in London and Los Angeles, prices range from $445 to $900. And while the collection may not put a stop to global warming, it’s certainly a sterling start! —Justine Harman
