"I don't know much about the program," the prolific designer admits to THR

When Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks is in need of a dress for a premiere, she often turns to edgy designer Vivienne Westwood. Although Westwood, who was recently named one of The Hollywood Reporter's top 25 red-carpet designers, admits that she's relatively unfamiliar with her client's onscreen work.

"I don't watch television and I don't follow popular culture too much," explains Westwood. "So I don't know much about the program, except I saw a little clip of it once and [Hendricks] has always got something in her mind; it's never a vacant expression"

Hendricks has been working with Westwood for about five years but says that she had been a fan of the English designer's work for about 20. She describes the designer's work as a "dichotomy of tradition and being active and always moving forward."
