Jessica Paré in Toronto

Posted on March 10, 2014

We should all have our own personal wind machines follow us around all day, don’t you think, darlings?

It’s not our favorite outfit of hers, but we love the shape of that coat. If she’d asked us, we would’ve suggested a bag and shoes with some color to them. All black ensembles when you know you’re gonna be street-papped don’t always work that well. It reads “funeral. Still, we’re expecting great things from her for the upcoming pre-Mad Men season poledance. It’ll be all her and Elisabeth Moss, duking it out on the red carpets for picture-taking attention. January Jones and Christina Hendricks seem like they’re over it. Maybe they’ll surprise us.

      LOVE the shoes – anyone know who they’re by??

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        They’re Nicholas Kirkwood from the Fall 2013 Collection : )

        • Scorpia_Mossmoon

          Do you happen to know who makes to coat? It’s coat porn to me. I guess I am a funereal kitten!

    • gabbilevy

      Yes, Jessica. THIS is your face and hair. None of that super-severe stuff you tend towards on the RC. Love the coat.

      • LaSylphide

        Agree. She needs softness to offset the angles of her face.

    • LaSylphide

      She’s one of the rare human beings who can wear black and not look like a corpse (Audrey Hepburn was another). Don’t care if there’s no color, she looks fabulous. And those SHOES!!! I want those SHOES!!!

    • Dr. Cookie

      dat grill, tho

      • Aurumgirl

        Oh come now. Her teeth are fine. Healthy, perfect teeth that no cosmetic dentist has touched. Calm down.

    • Sarah

      She looks really gorgeous to me, and I didn’t think “funereal” at all. To me, if you can pull off a black ensemble like that – particularly a coat – and have it lint-free, that’s the epitome of Classy.

      • Sophie

        It reads old-school glamour to me, she looks great.

    • Glam Dixie

      She is gorgeous, her smile is glorious, the coat is fabulous, so yeah, a little pop of color wouldn’t have hurt but you can’t complain too much when this is the end result.

    • marlie

      Even though the whole ensemble is black, I love it. I just wish she’d worn color on her lips. But the coat, bag, and shoes are all beautiful. But really, this is the best she’s looked in a long time.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      She looks fantastic! Minus the shoes… she borrowed those from Christina.

      • Twigg

        That is a subtle bitch slap right there. Bravo.

    • sugarkane105

      Please – we all know Kiernan will RULE those red carpets.

      • MilaXX

        Yep I have a feeling this final season’s pole dance is going to be hers and I expect her to shut it down. I just hope her future post Mad Men roles are something a bit better than A Flowers in the Attic remake.

        • Alloy Jane

          Why? Was it awful??? I really wanted to want to see it but totally forgot LOL.

          • MilaXX

            Not awful, but the source material isn’t exactly stellar and it’s made by Lifetime. It’s a Dlist venture at best. In fact I got bored and fell asleep and never went back to finish watching.

    • Alicia

      That coat is gorgeous.

      • tereliz


    • peachy

      lovely silhouette – just wish the sleeves were long rather than 3/4. if it’s warm enough for 3/4, why bother with a long coat? love the bag!!

      • alyce1213

        It’s an opportunity to wear beautiful, long kid gloves, which she missed. But I still like it a lot.

        • peachy

          well, you do have a most excellent point there, and she did miss that stunning opportunities. i see buttons, lots of tiny leather covered buttons!

    • SewingSiren

      Très chic.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      Can’t wait to see what future holds to Megan Draper.

    • lunchcoma

      I find black coats to be dull and un-porny, but her hair and makeup look unusually great here.

    • KinoEye

      The more Megan, the merrier. Best costumes on the show, except for maybe pre-divorce Betty or Jane Sterling. Can’t wait!

    • 3boysful

      Ahhhhh. Palate-cleanser.

    • beebee10

      Love it!! She and that coat are made for each other! Plus her smile is fabulous in these pic’s.

      • marlie

        A genuine smile suits her so much better than the slightly open-mouthed “sultry” faces she usually gives on the red carpet.

    • Alyssa_T_Robot

      snaps in a z formation

    • decormaven

      Now here’s some style on parade! Thanks, dear uncles.

    • filmcricket

      Hey, that’s right up the street from me. Love the coat.

    • Katie

      Love that coat!

    • butterflysunita

      Yes, that coat is fabulous on her.

    • boweryboy


    • schadenfreudelicious

      Would have loved to see a pop of colour with a beautiful scarf, but that is a minor quibble, she looks fantastic.

    • Lattis

      We should all have our own personal wind machines follow us around all day, don’t you think, darlings?

      Move to Idaho, pal. Your ever-present wind dream will come true.

    • Ashleigh

      Did I miss it? Whose bag is that?

      • Dredre47

        The bag is a Jason Wu Jourdan Turnlock Tote.

    • alyce1213

      Gorgeous. I commented earlier about gloves — had she worn a pair of long kid gloves — in a color, even in ivory — this would have been perfection plus.

    • merciblahblah

      Her hair and smile are glorious. Love it.

    • deelup

      She looks less like an actress and more like the defendant arriving at court.

      • alyce1213

        The defendant you think? To me, she looks like the plaintiff who sued her billionaire husband for divorce and just won big.

        • Imasewsure

          Yes that smiling divorcee is taking all of her girlfriends to Vegas on her ex-husbands dime!

        • Daisy Buchanan

          Ha :)

          I could see Jessica Pare as Lara Flynn Boyle in Lara Flynn Boyle vs. The People: What Happened to My Career?, a Lifetime Original movie.

    • Kate4queen

      This is just how I imagine I look when I go out and get paparrazzied…;)

    • Pennymac

      She’s on the tippy-top of my irrational celebrity hate list.

    • Imasewsure

      That’s about as easy breezy as you can get in head to toe funeral. I like it (but agreed about the bag and shoes)

    • Daisy Buchanan

      Hope I didn’t miss a post (if I did, my sincere apologies) but what did the Uncles and the BKs think of the Mad Men artwork for season 7A? It was someone on the AVClub who summed it up best for me, not quoting verbatim: It’s like they got Glaser’s work, didn’t know what to make of it, and slapped the familiar Mad Men silhouette onto the bottom in response.

    • teensmom99

      Looks like she’s wearing an outfit that Betty left in the closet-& it works.

    • Alfred Cox

      This is fine. Its a little “Wind in the Willows”, but fine. This kind of looks like something Julia Ormond would wear. Maybe Mama Calvet is rubbing off on her.

      • marlie

        That’s interesting… I hadn’t thought about it, but this is certainly something that a modern-day Mrs. Calvet would wear.

    • kimmeister

      I’m always amazed at how the wind obeys celebrities. When wind blows my hair, it blows it directly into my face, not away from it.

    • imspinningaround

      I just made the most unladylike noise at that coat. Something kind of like “hhhhhhhuuuuuunnnnnnnngggggggghhhhhhhffffffffffffff.”

    • MilaXX

      I agree it needs a bit of color, but I’m just happy to see a lady celeb actually dressed like it’s winter.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      She’s very happy to be trying to look like Jackie, isn’t she?

    • Nan

      I know this has nothing to do with her clothing, but her teeth, my god, her teeth obliterate any chances of me ever thinking she is attractive

      • Trickytrisha

        I’ve been practically sitting on my hands to keep from typing the same thing. It’s just rather surprising in this age of celebs who do any and everything to appear perfect. Kind of refreshing, but just imagine how gorgeous if her teeth matched the rest of her.

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        And now you’re banned from this comments section.

    • Gatto Nero

      Gorgeous coat.
      She’s managing to look classically beautiful and modern at the same time.

    • ojosazules

      Beautiful coat. It looks great on her.

    • DeniseSchipani

      George Stroumbolopolous? Is he like the Canadian George Stephanopolous? Apologies to our Canadian friends…

    • Jacob Bowen

      I’m not a fan of the coat because it reads VERY “bathrobe” to me, albeit a very expensive bathrobe.

    • jif

      Do we know where that coat is from? It’s gorgeous.

    • livesarah

      She looks great, but also like she is gritting her teeth against the cold rather than smiling!

    • p_capet


    • nowlo

      I love the bracelet-length, balloon sleeves on the jacket. They prevent it from looking too much like a black bathrobe. They add a 1950s-flavor charm but the whole look is still modern and sophisticated. I think she looks very chic here, not funereal at all.

    • Esz

      I would like that coat please.

    • Susan Velazquez

      I agree, she needed pops of color. I’m getting a femme fatale vibe from here so if she wanted all black accessories, at the very least she could have put on some red lipstick

    • Jennifer McGuire

      I’m so enchanted by her smile that I can’t say anything about her clothes.

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      Pas de ‘coat porn’? I want absolutely everything she is wearing.

    • allcapsERINN

      She looks happy and lovely. I love these pics.

    • Lilyana_F

      That coat is fabulous! Some color in the accessories and this would’ve been a WERQ for me.

    • Aidan B


    • Alloy Jane

      Fabulous! She looks wonderful overall and I don’t mind the funereal-ness of it all. LOVE that coat. Absolutely love.
