I’m not a huge fan of January Jones. I still can’t decide if she’s a good actress or if she is just playing herself on Mad Men, and I don’t think we’d be friends if we knew each other. But that doesn’t mean I am not going to call the fuck out of someone when I see them treating her in a sexist manner. More
Topic: mad men
We all end up thinking that we’re characters on TV shows. Some women end up thinking that they’re Carrie Bradshaw, or, worse, Hannah Horvath. They are not. Even more ridiculously, some men in your life may think they are Don Draper. No. They are not Don Draper. They are maybe Pete Campbell. Here is why: More
I blame the perfectly fitted suits for this one… More
SPOILERS. SO MANY.
Trudy has always been one of my favorite characters on Mad Men. I think she’s put up with a ton with very, very good spirits, and I’m pleased to see her getting some love this week. However, it’s for a reason that surprised me. More
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
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.

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
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
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. More
Jessica Paré, the woman who plays Don Draper‘s wife, has a theory on why we love it when fictional characters cheat – as Don Draper seems likely to do in season six of Mad Men (premiering this Sunday at 9! Party at my house! You bring the supplies!) More
Remember how Jon Hamm‘s allegedly gargantuan penis was allegedly distracting the whole Mad Men set so a staffer allegedly told him to wear some underwear (then reported the alleged incident to a major media outlet)? Well, he had something to say about it in his Rolling Stone interview this week. More
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
