"Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks is throwing actress Megan Fox and Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima quite a curve -- the redheaded bombshell beat out both beauties to take top honors in Esquire magazine's best-looking woman contest.

Voluptuous Hendricks, who has been both lauded and criticized for her fuller figure, can be seen showing off her assets in a little black dress on the cover of Esquire's May "Women" issue, while inside she seductively slurps watermelon and gives men an anatomy lesson.

"We remember forever what you say about the bodies of other women," says Hendricks in the magazine. The stunner took 30 percent of the votes in Esquire's survey of 10,000 women, followed by Lima (17 percent) and Fox (14 percent).

"When you mention in passing that a certain woman is attractive -- could be someone in the office, a woman on the street, a celebrity, any woman in the world, really -- your comment goes into a steel box and it stays there forever... It's not about whether or not we approve of the comment. It's about learning what you think is sexy and how we might be able to convey it," she says.

And that's not all that's getting stored in that little steel box.

"We also remember everything you say about our bodies, be it good or bad," says Hendricks. "Doesn't matter if it's a compliment. Could be just a comment. We remember what you were wearing and the street corner you were standing on when you said it."

Despite her cautionary tales, the buxom beauty does have some uplifting news for the guys.

"If we're in love with you, we love your body," says the star, who wed actor Geoffrey Arend last October. "Your potbelly, everything. Even if you're insecure about something, we love your body. You feel like you're not this or that? We love your body. We embrace everything. Because it's you."
