Makeup Face-Off: Betty Draper Vs. Megan Draper

Makeup Face-Off: Betty Draper Vs. Megan Draper

The two wives of Don Draper have quite a bit in common. Both Megan and Betty have been married to the same douchebag very attractive advertising executive guy, both are fascinating women with more intriguing personalities than many of the show’s other characters, both are absolutely stunning in appearance (and voice, though many of my friends have disagreed with me on that note). When it comes to their individual beauty looks, though, the two are very different.

For this Friday’s Makeup Tutorial, I’ll be using your votes to decide whose makeup I’ll do. Will it be Betty’s lovely, simple early- to mid-60s look or Megan’s more dramatic, late 60s makeup? More »

A Very Mad Men F*ck, Marry, Kill: Don Draper, Roger Sterling, Pete Campbell

A Very Mad Men F*ck, Marry, Kill: Don Draper, Roger Sterling, Pete Campbell

You may be expecting our regularly scheduled Wednesday episode of Wed Bed Dead. Unfortunately, Jen and Ashley got a little too awesome last night (whiskey) and don’t have one for you. Next week they will! Still, they dragged themselves out from under their oppressive hangovers this morning and made you a Fuck Marry Kill in the old written format, concerning a few of Mad Men‘s main anti-heroes, Don Draper, Roger Sterling and Pete Campbell.

Betty Draper vs. January Jones: Beauty Showdown

Betty Draper vs. January Jones: Beauty Showdown

Today, January Jones and Betty Draper are going to have a beauty showdown! Who is lovelier? We tried this last week with Emilia Clarke vs, Daenerys Targaryen and the ultimate winner was, “This game is absurd, because they are the same person!” But who will win this time? I bet it will be Betty Draper, because I love it when people style their hair elaborately and wear fifties style make-up. More »

Villainess Style: Dress Like Betty Draper

Villainess Style: Dress Like Betty Draper

Every week, Villainess Style showcases a bad woman with a good wardrobe. This week, to go along with the season six premiere of Mad Men this Sunday, Betty Draper! Who I love, very much, but who absolutely no one else seems to. Why? Why do you not want to fill her deep inner void of sadness? I don’t know. Maybe if I show you some cool dresses, and some quotes from her, you will like her. Or at least dress like her. More »

Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss Played ‘F*ck, Marry, Kill’ With Roger Sterling, Don Draper, And Pete Campbell(!!!!)

Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss Played 'F*ck, Marry, Kill' With Roger Sterling, Don Draper, And Pete Campbell(!!!!)

In the latest issue of GQ, Elisabeth Moss (a.k.a. Peggy Olsen from Mad Men) is profiled in the typical GQ way. They describe her as their “favorite workplace vixen,” which makes me think they’ve never actually watched an episode of Mad Men. She poses in her underwear, talks about a sex scene on her excellent-sounding new show Top Of The Lake (they had me at “Twin Peaks“), and…plays a nice little game of “Fuck, Marry, Kill” with the men of Sterling Cooper.

Alison Brie Plays Up Her Acting Range (And Social Media Skills) In Wired Magazine

Alison Brie Plays Up Her Acting Range (And Social Media Skills) In Wired Magazine

In the latest issue of Wired Magazine, Alison Brie (of Mad Men and Community fame) hams it up in some photos illustrating an article about the new ways people are using technology to engage with TV shows, and how outdated the Nielsen rating system is. (And how we have gotten better TV shows as a result.) None of the pictures within are quite as great as the cover shot, which shows what Trudy Campbell would look like if she murdered her horrid, sniveling prig of a husband and took his job. But they do show off Ms. Brie’s range as an actress, which is something the article discusses, and she looks great in all of them. Now, let’s do some “Mad Math.” More »

Red Carpet Rundown: People Looked Surprisingly Bad At The Mad Men Season 6 Premiere

Red Carpet Rundown: People Looked Surprisingly Bad At The Mad Men Season 6 Premiere

That moment you’ve all (maybe) been waiting for is nearly upon us. No, I don’t mean Game of Thrones, silly – I’m talking about season 6 of Mad Men. But before us normal people get a chance to see the show, there was a snazzy red carpet premiere over at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles because television people like to do those, too.

As one might have guessed, everybody looked sufficiently classed up in that people who are in Mad Men are expected to. However, it seems as though they may have caught the same “tastefully boring” disease that Ashley revealed of the Game of Thrones red carpet. More »
