The New York Times' initial photo, left, of Hendricks at the Golden Globes; the undistorted image, right.
Hendricks' husband, actor Geoffrey Arend, stood up for her, as did a number of bloggers.
"I was just upset about the whole Golden Globes dress thing. I thought she looked so gorgeous," he told People magazine. "And that New York Times blogger saying that … It's so ridiculous. ... What was nice was seeing the entire Internet come after that blogger. That was really cool. It was the first time I saw just a solid block of 'You're crazy! What's wrong with you? You should be ashamed of yourself!'"
Alexandra Noailles, who works in finance in New York City, agreed with Arend. "She's so amazingly sexy," Noailles told ABCNews.com. "Full-figured is sexy again. And she knows how to carry her curves. She has a certain style, a certain flair."
That's one thing Noailles believes Hendricks can impart to other women.
"If a lot of women understood their sense of style, then they could be sexy just like her," she said. "It's all about knowing what looks good on you."
