Betty Draper's Style
Betty Draper personifies the phrase "drop dead gorgeous;" she looks glamorous in everything from jockey attire to a pink negligee. Betty's beautiful floral print dresses and matching head bands, sophisticated hair styles, high waisted pants, fur coats, smart stilettos and crimson lips inspire even the wrinkliest couch potato with awe! This season Betty has been moving away from her signature floral print dresses toward slim, more conservative suits. Perhaps Betty is adapting to her new life as the wife of politician Henry Francis, or perhaps this new look represents a lady who is finally starting to find her independence. Regardless, we can't wait to see what new style surprises Betty's got up her sleeve this season.
Don Draper's style
Don Draper's style is sharp, suave, and subtly powerful. The collar of his crisp white dress shirt stands at attention, his suit is slim cut, his tie saber-straight. Don generally sticks to a monochromatic color-scheme--he doesn't need color to make a splash. Don is suffering some personal turmoil this season, and his slightly rumpled wardrobe reflects his inner chaos and new bachelor lifestyle. We hate to say it, but Betty was Don's most stylish accessory; without her he's a bit lackluster.
Peggy Olson's Style
When first introduced to Mad Men, Peggy Olson's mousey wardrobe choices were innocent and conservative. The antithesis of curvy office vixen Joan, Peggy seemed to be trying to blend into the walls. Peggy has grown considerably this season; she is finally forging a place for herself among the powerful men at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. This season, Peggy's style reflects her growing inner confidence-- her new haircut is short and stylish, and she has taken to wearing pops of blue, white, and yellow. Peggy's new, more modern style represents the strong, independent, adventurous woman she has become, and we can't get enough of it!
Pete Campbell's Style
Pete Campbell has struggled to prove himself at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and for the first few seasons his ill fitting suits, thin lapels and skinny ties accentuated his baby faced youth. This season, Pete's wardrobe has matured along with him; his browns and grey suits are well tailored and elegant.
Joan Harris's Style
Joan's sultry curves are to die for, and Mad Men's costume designer, Janie Bryant, definitely knows how to accentuate actress Christina Hendricks' voluptuous figure. Joan has made 14 a size that every woman covets; rather than hiding her curves, she accentuates them with sexy sheath dresses and curve-hugging sweaters. In Season Four, one of Joan's most beloved outfits was the royal blue boat-neck dress with giant buttons on the bust line, and her glamorous crimson party dress with two silk bows on the back. Joan knows how to dress, and is not afraid to show off. We can't take our eyes off of her!
Henry Francis' Style
Henry Francis sure loves his checkered and sweater vests and ties. His style hasn't changed much since last season; he's is still wearing his dashing vertical print ties and distinguished white shirts. Betty seems to be attracted to Henry's polished maturity, and she has been tailoring her wardrobe to match new husband's understated style.
