Cigarettes, whiskey, JFK, and sex --that's Mad Men in just a few words. One of my favorite television series, Mad Men isn't a critically acclaimed show just because of its awesome storyline with riveting characters and affairs galore, its fashion can solely speak for itself as well. Set in Manhattan of the 1960s, the fashion you can just imagine alone comes to life. Flat presidential pocket square folds to Frank Sinatra-inspired blues and suits to full skirts, petticoats, and Grace Kelly, Mad Men brings back the ultimate vintage/retro-chic.
One of my favorite characters, based on style and wardrobe alone, is Betty Draper. Reminiscent of Grace Kelly, Mad Men's costume designer Janine Bryant has described her as "a character who is trying to create the perfect facade." The show has had huge influences on runways and designers since it first started airing. Most notable among the show's loyal fans is American designer, Michael Kors, who based his fall 2008 collection off of the show and showcased his utmost admiration by requiring all the models to wear name tags reading, "Hello, my name is... Betty".
While the entire cast of Mad Men all have their own personal styles and tastes, here are a few of my Betty favorites. Enjoy!
