Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, which means it’s officially summertime here in the United States. But perhaps you’ve fallen behind in the wardrobe department. Maybe your sundress game could use a little elevating. Well, why not take a page from this May 1958 issue of McCall’s, featuring “carefree” cottons?
There were two fake outs in the opening moments of last night's premiere of Mad Men's sixth season. First, we were meant to believe that Don had suffered from some kind of life-threatening incident. But that was merely the setup for the bigger ruse in which the Drapers' happy vacation in sunny Hawaii indicated…
Mad Men's Betty Draper has never been a very sympathetic character. While we're able to forgive many of Don's transgressions, it's harder to come to terms with Betty's because she's such a charmless, immature, seemingly slight woman of that time.
Fans of the show were wondering how Mad Men would handle January Jones' pregnancy. Would Betty stand behind a lot of flower arrangements or carry large bags? No, actually. They covered it up alright—but with a fat suit. Suddenly, the one-dimensional Mrs. Francis just got a lot more interesting.
Some of us are still trying to process everything from last night's Mad Men premiere, but thanks to the expert performance of Jessica Paré, virtually all of us spent the day with Megan's version "Zou Bisou Bisou" running through our heads. That scene transformed Paré from Don's secretary to a full-blown star, and…
Since it became public knowledge that Mad Men was going to kill off at least one "regular character" (although other reports have put the tally as high as six), debate has swirled: should Lane Pryce return to London? Should Roger's poor work ethic and heart trouble conspire for the big pink slip? But one idea has…
There were literally dozens of oddly digitally altered models and celebrities this year, with a swipe of the mouse resulting in wonky elbows, whittled waists, new hands and unnaturally lightened skin. Here we have the very worst.
Let's make Christmas all about vampires and '50s ad agencies! We've got gifts for Mad Men enthusiasts, True Blood fangbangers and anyone goo goo for Lady Gaga. Caution: You're gonna want most of this stuff for yourself.
Here is a video of Cindy McCain essentially telling her husband to fuck off — for how his policies and positions directly hurt gay youth and help drive them to suicide. And maybe just to fuck off in general.
Welcome back to Midweek Madness! Every Wednesday, Margaret and I pick through the trash of the weekly tabloids, trying to find good scraps of gossip. This week: Death, nose jobs, bullying, free furniture, Hollywood Hobos and a pink pussycat.
With her Ice Princess demeanor and penchant for shaming her daughter, Betty Draper is one of Mad Men's most despised characters. But are viewers just failing to understand her complexity?
Between budget cuts, broken homes, retro-future interior design, AA, and Swedish dating habits on last night's episode, it's clear that "old fashioned" is for the birds and "mod" is the cooler way to be.
The Mad Men dolls are not for kids. According to The New York Times, they're part of the "premium-price collectors' series" for adults. But there's a problem with the mini Don Draper, Betty Draper, Roger Sterling and Joan Holloway:
We love John Webster's unofficial Mad Men Valentines, but since they don't cover Season 3, we've made a few more. Feel free to print them out, paste on macaroni, and give them to your Valentine — or even your spouse.
Things got downright confrontational on last night's episode, titled "The Hobo and the Gypsy."
Betty and Don Draper make smoking and boozing look glamorous. But all that hard living is more likely to ruin their perfect facade than their respective extramarital affairs. Check out what we think the Drapers could look like in 1983.
Last night's episode, "Wee Small Hours," was full of high expectations and enormous letdowns.
On this week's Mad Men, Betty indulged her latest Daddy issues, Don tried to stave off deals with devils, Peggy learned what she's worth to the men in her life, and Joan was tragically absent. Everyone is expendable.
