Mad for Mad Men

2012 April 1

I know it’s not a book, but I can’t help but dedicate a post to Mad Men, mostly because it’s coming on in five minutes, and I found myself saying “I want that dress” every scene in last week’s season 5 premiere. Here are a few shots of some of my favorite looks from last week:

Peggy’s slightly nautical navy dress. Maybe because I related to her more than the other characters on the show, I think Peggy is my favorite. It’s so hard to choose.

I wouldn’t perform a sultry dance for Joe in front of an apartment full of his colleagues, but I would maybe wear this fantastically dramatic dress.

Jane’s hair is insane, but I love the full-on mod vibe of her maxi dress.

And Joan, as always, brings it, in a shiny floral dress that I’m pretty sure only she can make look this good.

Do you watch Mad Men? Which character’s closet would you raid if you had the chance?

    I adore Mad Men! Honestly, I’ve always really enjoyed Betty’s clothing, she always looks so put together. I cannot wait to watch this weeks episode!

    I don’t have cable, but I’ve added season five to my netflix queue. (You can even save season six!) I’ve always followed Peggy’s looks closely. She clung to that awful pony tail for so long, I was dying for her to make herself over. I like her because she’s not the most stylish person on the show and makes mistakes. I’m kind of like that.

      I agree! I’ve loved her style since her makeover, and though she does wear some questionable things sometimes, I think that’s totally in line with her character and only makes me like her more.

    AMC posted a little video piece with Mad Men’s costume designer on their website that I think you’ll enjoy. She talks about the clothes in the premiere! http://www.amctv.com/mad-men/videos/janie-bryant-on-costumes-in-the-season-5-premiere-inside-mad-men
