Meanwhile, highlights from Miss Hendricks' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Easy Living!

On growing up in a small town in the Rocky Mountains:
"There were very few stores, so I always shopped vintage. I'd turn a crazy scarf into a turban and wear it with a leotard and baggy shorts."

On first dyeing her hair at age 10:
"I was obsessed with 'Anne of Green Gables,' so wanted red hair. Mom said, 'I'll throw a rinse on it.'"

On her tips for curvy women:
"I have to be careful about my proportions and keep it simple. What works for me is structure and something that shows off my waist."

On the lack of good swimwear for ladies with bigger bosoms:
"It's really hard to find a bathing suit if you have breasts. You either get smooshed down or there's no support at all. I want to start my own line, with good bra support. My husband and I have sketched out designs."
