Now that Rosie Huntington-Whitely has added creative director to her résumé, we officially believe that models are putting mere mortals out of jobs. Still, we kind of love her work in this shoot with
Megan Draper Jessica Paré for soon-to-be beauty site Violet Grey.
We’re struggling to think of a more perfect next career move for Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant. The woman who’s mod ‘60s aesthetic has struck a chord with everyone from us to Mark Ronson has scored her own reality TV show! The format is — of course — a competition series in which wannabe designers are tasked with creating a garment in the style of either a classic Hollywood film or a retro film icon’s signature style.
January Jones and Kiernan Shipka have completely different red carpet styles, but at last night’s Mad Men season five presentation at the The Paley Center for Media, it seemed like the two swapped outfits on their way to the event. Take a look, and chime in.
In a mere three days, Peggy Olson, Betty
Draper Francis, Joan Harris, and the new Mrs. Draper will be back on the small screen for a brand new season of Mad Men. Suffice it to say we are VERY excited. Magazine editors have also fallen hard for the show’s leading ladies and January Jones, Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, and, as of last season, Jessica Paré have been newsstand fixtures ever since the show hit the airwaves. In the spirit of nostalgia, we’re taking a look back at their best shoots, and in the spirit of competition (of which there’s certainly no shortage on the show), we want to know whose you like best.
Our favorite part about Mad Men may just be the costumes, but at last night’s season six premiere in Los Angeles, the dresses on the leading ladies unfortunately fell short of fabulous.
Mad Men’s season premiere this Sunday was a highly anticipated television event, but no one predicted that the star everyone would be talking about the next day would be Jessica Paré, who plays Don Draper’s new wife Megan. Styleite got to chat with Paré about her role on the show and, of course, the clothes.
Cute hat! But that mouse? Not so much.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Here’s a list of what she wore recently. Can you guess who it is?
Mad Men is very similar to Downton Abbey in that we really don’t like seeing the cast in “real” life. It confuses us! But January Jones and Jon Hamm are usually excepted from that rule, mainly because they’re both as ridiculously good looking in real life as they are on the show. Basically, the symmetry of their faces transcends time, space, and television. But anyway! They went out last night (for a Mad Men media something something fete) and January Jones had pink streaks in her hair. That is so not Betty Draper.
Airplanes are so hot right now. Following in the footsteps of Chanel and, well, Chanel, Banana Republic unveiled their new Mad Men collection on a cross-country Virgin America flight from New York to Los Angeles. And while a five-hour plane ride might seem like a lot to sit through for a 4-look show, the passenger manifest conveniently included bloggers like Keiko Lynn, Saucy Glossie, and My Style Pill, all of whom were whisked off to
Sally Draper Kiernan Shipka’s house upon landing to celebrate the launch.
There are a lot of things we love about Lauren Hutton‘s interview with Michael Kors in the September issue of Interview, but topping that list is a badass tale the model-slash-actress told about auditioning for a group of Mad Men-style ad execs in the 1960s.
Looks like we’ll be able to get our Mad Men fix a little before 2012 after all. While the series isn’t coming back this year, a fashion line inspired by the hit show will appear in Banana Republic stores everywhere this fall.
The cast of Mad Men celebrated the season four finale in style on Thursday night at the iconic 21 Club in New York City. And just like on the show, the cast looked fab, though
Betty Draper January Jones was notably missing (again.) Who was your favorite?
We love Christina Hendricks. We love her hair, her face, her character Joan on Mad Men, her attitude, and, of course, her body. Which is why we can’t understand why anyone would choose to lop half of it off. And so, we present to you the latest edition of When Photoshop Strikes, in which we wonder: what happened to Christina Hendricks’ legs?
Rolling Stone — arbiter of all that is cool and, in all likelihood, naked – shot the cast of AMC’s “Mad Men” for their special television issue. The cover image, which features Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Jon Hamm, and Christina Hendricks, would be amazing if it didn’t have so many post-photoshopping flaws.
Tonight is the premiere Mad Men‘s fourth season, a show so good that you can’t simply plop down on the Davenport and stare aimlessly at it. For the full effect, one must prepare. Don Draper‘s Brylcreemed hair and Joan Hollaway‘s sensible, chic style demand respect. And to show that respect, here’s a list of things that must be done and/or acquired before the show airs at 10 pm.
Last night in Los Angeles, the cast of Mad Men — apart from a noticeably missing January Jones — celebrated the premiere of the show’s fourth season. And if there’s one thing the show is known for, it’s fashion. But while Christina Hendricks (and her saucy character Joan Holloway) may be the sartorial frontrunner of the female cast, Elisabeth Moss isn’t lagging far behind. Who do you think looked better?
Remember the tipsy secretary on Mad Men who inexplicably got to keep her job after running over one the British import’s legs with a John Deere lawnmower? Yeah, well, she’s this month’s Playboy cover girl.
With the premiere of Mad Men‘s fourth season just a few short weeks away, costume designer Janie Bryant discusses how Don Draper‘s suits are getting darker, and why Joan Holloway‘s undergarments are as fabulous as what she wears on top of them.
