Megan Draper Beams To Present Day Where Her Teeth Are Appreciated For Poolside Editorial

Megan Draper (a.k.a. Jessica Pare)’s distinctive-looking teeth have occasionally been an obstacle for her character on Mad Men, like when someone told her she’d never be an actress because of them. This turns out not to be true even in the world of the show, but I’ve often wished I could show Megan just one fashion editorial from the present day, because chances are, the model in it would have big, gap teeth.

Fashion Choices That Indicate Every Character On Mad Men Will Die This Weekend

Much to-do has been made over the fact that, in a recent episode of Mad Men, Megan Draper was wearing a t-shirt that looked exactly like Sharon Tate‘s.

January Jones Wears A Series Of Gorgeous Dresses In The Edit

After what felt like forever without it, Mad Men is currently on TV for what will probably feel like way too short a time.

In the latest issue of Net-a-Porter‘s interactive online fashion mag The Edit, criminal undersharer January Jones dons some truly gorgeous outfits and looks, well, gorgeous in them. The accompanying article is fairly similar content-wise to The New York Times‘ sexist hack job, only it takes a strong stance in favor of Ms. Jones’ right to privacy. Imagine that! But even if you are still mad at her for refusing to tell us everything about her interior life, perhaps you can content yourself with the fact that she seems committed to using her exterior to create some really striking images.
