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in some photos illustrating an article about the new ways people are using technology to engage with TV shows, and how outdated the Nielsen rating system is.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 »

A Model Is Suing Mad Men

A Model Is Suing Mad Men

Mad Men/Matthew Weiner is not being sued for for sexual harassment, which was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard a model was suing Mad Men. Because somehow I’ve decided that Matt Weiner behaves exactly like everyone on the show, and it’s completely autobiographical. That feels right. More »

I Miss Cigarettes

I Miss Cigarettes

I never really smoked. I certainly don’t now that it’s banned pretty much everyplace in New York. In spite of that, when I smell smoke on someone’s clothing, I find myself almost immediately nostalgic. That man or woman strikes me as a last holdout of a bygone world, bravely flutter-kicking against any currents of change. I feel about them the way I might have felt happening upon someone making horsehoes in 1920. That is to say, I don’t miss cigarettes so much as I miss the culture that went with them. More »
