Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss in NYC

Posted on April 28, 2014

How could we not follow that all-nighter of a Mad Men review with something as easy as this? But we’re warning you now, this may forever ruin Peggy and Don for you.

Kittens, Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss are proud to star in “We Are NOT our Mad Men Characters,” opening this fall on Broadway:

Jon-Hamm-Elisabeth-Moss-GOTS-NYC-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-Mad-Men (1)“Mad Men” actors Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss head out to get a coffee together in New York City.

Don would put his cigarette out in the eye of a man who’d wear that scarf in public.

Strangely, we suspect Peggy Olson would approve of Lizzie’s outfit, but that’s because Peggy can’t dress to save her life.

    Her Uggs burn my eyes. What a way to ruin a cute outfit, Liz

    • Stella Zawistowski

      I KNOW. Scrolldown fug for sure.

      • GillianHolroyd

        I think you mean scrolldown ugg.

        • ellatheingenue

          scrolldown fugg

    • deathandthestrawberry

      I know! I think the trench and the dress are very cute. I don’t even mind the hat, but those uggs looks like they stank!

      • Sarah

        The hat is just as bad as the Uggs, for me. Not all hats are good for all people, and this one just looks like she raided gramps’s closet.

        • alyce1213

          Or Don Draper’s closet.

    • @Biting Panda

      “Oh, Uggs, ugh.”

      • ktr33

        How about a compromise — FUGGs

    • Kate Andrews

      Yes. Ughs indeed.

    • Judih1


    • demidaemon

      YEESH. So bad. It’s all i can see now.

    • e jerry powell

      Her Uggs have spontaneously lobotomized me.

  • princessricky

    according to wikipedia jon hamm does not smoke! so clearly that is don draper wearing that scarf!

    • uprightcitizen

      My first thought. He’s been quoted as saying that he doesn’t, and he supposedly uses the non-tobacco cigarettes that are often made for actors. So much for that, eh?

      • Eric Stott

        smoking is smoking

        • uprightcitizen

          Yeah, but the idea behind the herbal, non tobacco cigarettes for TV and movies is that they don’t have the same physical harms and aren’t addictive, so actors don’t end up wanting to or needing to smoke them off camera, and their job isn’t (as) damaging to their health. But this either makes that concept not so true, or the press about him not being a smoker isn’t true (anymore). Either way, it’s unfortunate. When you think about how many takes they probably do of each scene where he smokes, he has to smoke a crapload of whatever they are as part of his job. I’ll bet he had to sign a release about it.

  • alyce1213

    Hats, sunglasses, AND belted trench coats — because they’re in deep undercover mode. Uggs must die.

    • BLauD

      That was my thought too. They are pretending to be secret agents!

  • Anna

    Those Uggs need to be thrown into and unmade in the fires of Mount Doom along with Johnny Depp’s hat(s). Positively atrocious.

  • marlie

    Liz’s outfit would be fine if she wasn’t wearing the Uggs. As for Jon… his outfit needs a lot more work.

  • Janet B

    Not as bad as I expected, although my expectations weren’t too high.

  • flamingoNW

    He looks okay for me (well, yeah, the scarf….) but Elisabeth? Yikes.

  • BarniClaw

    I actually love that he looks a little dorky. I feel like that’s who he is on the inside, and he’s a-ok with that. As he should be.

    • Kate Andrews

      Yes. And the old baseball cap. This is why I love Jon Hamm and not just the character he plays.

      • Alloy Jane

        That hat is 100% Sandlot. He’s not dressed fashionably, he’s just dressed like a dude. Well, a dude that wears scarves, so yeah.

    • leahpapa

      YES, for both of them! I actually like when actors look like the high school drama dorks that so many of them must have been. Sure, it’s pretty when stars come off as the prom king and queen, but most of the ones with any chops at all likely were/are big time nerds.

    • KinoEye

      I think you’re absolutely right. The man has a gift for comedic timing and absolutely no shame. I love, love love his guest appearances on 30 Rock for those very reasons.

      • Trent

        Did you see his cameo on Parks & Rec last week? Hilarious! And he’s wonderful on SNL, too…

  • Shug

    What the fuck are those things on her feet. The scrolldown fug-o-meter is going haywire. Thank gawd Mr. Trouser Hamm is looking scrumptious. (EDIT: because it is physically impossible for him to not look scrumptious.)

    • demidaemon

      I actually want a device that will give me readings of fug on different outfits. especially if it is equipped with an equally annoying alarm sound.

  • AzSportsGirl

    Is it really that cold in NYC? Scarves, safari jackets, Ugh! boots?

    • alyce1213

      Yes, it’s been cold, on and off. Scarves, jackets, but NEVER UGGS!

      • SugarSnap108

        Never Uggs. By god, never.

    • fursa_saida

      Yup. Today I am wearing over-the-knee boots over jeans, and I wore my winter coat on the commute–it’s crisp-but-nice in the sun, but legitimately chilly in the shade. We haven’t had a properly warm day in about two weeks.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I like her dress. That’s all I’ve got.

  • From the first pic, I thought Elisabeth looked disheveled but still cute. UNTIL.

    Total scrolldown fug.

  • dMnyc

    Noooo! Not that scarf!

  • czarina

    Oh come on….the scarf is medicinal — he has been wearing them since he started having throat issues — both pre- and post-throat surgery. Now, if only that trench wasn’t so buttoned-up! I’m digging the sideburns as it looks like Don Draper maybe changing — just a tad — with the times.

    • JohannaEG

      Is the cigarette medicinal, too?

      • czarina

        Good point. Maybe it is medical marijuana?

        • Kit_W

          Not with that huge honkin’ filter.

  • I object to ugg boots on principle. He looks utterly forgettable in that outfit. except for the handsome mug of course.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Is that a clutch handbag? or just an iPad cover. Who carries a clutch in the daytime?

    • Alloy Jane

      Maybe it’s a planner? My sister prefers to leave with just that since her purse is monstrous.

  • Mothra

    I need one of those eye wash stations to get those boots out of my brain.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Pretty much when I saw Hamm in the movie trailer for something like Bad News Bears from India, I knew he was not his Mad Men character.

  • NBG

    My calendar says April, WTH?

    • MasterandServant

      It has been really chilly in NY over the last few weeks- we even had snow 2 weeks ago!

      • demidaemon

        Yep. As much as we keep hoping it really is spring now, it hasn’t truly settled in.

  • Cheryl

    I have to say I’m way more disappointed by the cigarette than the scarf. Yeah, I know Don smokes like a fiend, but I’m sad that Jon does.

    • alyce1213

      Me too, but I understand the difficulty he has not smoking when his characters does. It must be nearly impossible to resist the habit. Hope he kicks now that it’s the last season.

      • They’ve always used herbal cigarettes on set, though.

        • alyce1213

          Smoking is more than an addiction to the nicotine, which can be staved off with patches or gum. The oral and physical behaviors can be tough to break.

          • jilly_d

            amen. I have smoked on and off for a long time, but never had a physical nicotine addiction. I can easily quit for a week with my parents (they hate it) or for school trips or what have you, and not have any withdrawal symptoms. But I just enjoy smoking so much as a hobby. (don’t hate me BKs) It’s hard to give up for more than just the nicotine. I can imagine that when you spend so much time on set smoking (even with fake cigs) it would be hard to come home and not.

          • KinoEye

            On and off smoker (hopefully, soon to be ex smoker) here — I can vouch for that. The ritual of smoking is what drives the addiction more than nicotine for some people. It’s an ingrained habit in so many ways. If I’m holding anything that’s even remotely cigarette-shaped, I hold it like I would a cig without even thinking about it. Tricky little bitches, they are.

          • Alloy Jane

            Indeed, smoking and drinking are related to being orally fixated, so it’s helpful to find something mouth-oriented to help you transition. My dad quit smoking when I was 18 because I’d spent my life harassing him about it, destroying his cigarettes, stealing his lighters, complaining about constantly coughing up blood, etc, and he switched to bananas. Maybe take up a tea ritual? That could be helpful and also healthy. Good luck!

          • Sarah

            The worst. I’ve kicked everything I’ve been addicted to, but I’m on again for the fourth time. I am like @jilly_d:disqus, I can quit for days – weeks – if I have to for trips and stuff, but it is heinous to give up the habits. And, I do get withdrawal symptoms, which make you feel like you want to peel your skin off. It is a hideous problem. Hoping time #5 is the last.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      As i watched Don smoke with abandon as usual in last night’s episode, i turned to Mister Schaden and said “I wonder if he smokes in real life, i imagine he must?…now i know…

  • Amanda

    I try not to be completely, irrationally, anti-Ugg…but if it is warm enough for that dress, it is too warm for Uggs.

  • MissusBee

    Are they supposed to be in disguise? The random outfits remind me of Mel Brooks and Madeline Kahn trying to slip through airport security by attracting AS MUCH ATTENTION AS POSSIBLE.

    Also: Christina Hendricks and John Slattery are watching them through newspapers with eye holes cut out.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Never worn Uggs (they just dont work in 8 months of winter, plus they are indeed ugly), legit question, is the stankboot quotient not off the charts?

    • Sarah

      Not as bad as you’d think, if worn in the legit coldness. I only wear mine around the house, though, like knee-high slippers. The thing is, people wear them in the warm months (as did I when I was young) and then, most definitely, yes. Stank. Boot.

      • KinoEye

        Since I live in the country, I often use my off-brand Uggs (Minnetonka, actually — a lot less clunky-looking than Uggs) when I’m tromping around outside with the dog. The stank is indeed off the charts when I wear them in the summer.

    • Gatto Nero

      I don’t have Uggs but do wear other fleece-lined footwear and they stay remarkably stank-free. The magical properties of real fleece.

  • Roz

    They’re dressed for a little field trip, right?

  • Rottenwood

    Related to absolutely nothing: I think it’s rather nice that the two just hang out when not on the job. God, I’m getting soft in my middle age.

    • Alloy Jane

      Heh, I really need to learn to read before posting cuz I said this too.

    • SparkleNeely

      Naw, it IS nice that they seem to like each other. Unlike Peggy and Don, who seem ready to combust any moment. Seriously, Pegs should just let Don take aim at Lou and do his usual conniving best so that they can both be rid of the Louster.

  • Elizabeth Wakefield

    I’m just pissed Hamm’s coat is long. 😡

    • sundaynightaddict

      When I saw the long coat, I couldn’t help but wonder if it was because he decided, as usual, to forego underwear but wanted to keep us peen spotters at bay lol

    • Probably deliberately so, given fans like you. 😛

      • Elizabeth Wakefield

        ha! probably 😉

    • SpillinTea

      Glad I’m not the only one that said “Damn, no Hammaconda.”

  • colleenjanel

    Her boots need to be burned. Otherwise, I have few qualms with these photos.

    Do I spy grey at his temples? Swoon!

  • Lol. Get your feet out of those boots, girl. I love Jon’s hilarious incongruous-with-Don look. And their very conspicuous looking around.

  • Liz

    I love Elisabeths outfit except for the Uggs. JH is looking like Mike Rowe.

  • Lilithcat

    What the hell has Moss got on her feet? And why?

  • Violentcello

    Elisabeth Moss looks like she’s wearing one of those Groucho glasses with the nose attached, but without the mustache. The dress is probably cute, but I hate everything else she’s wearing.

    Of course, her best accessory is the hunk in the dorky hat walking next to her.

    • alyce1213

      Ray Ban Wayfarers are not for her, especially in red. They don’t sit well on the bridge of her nose. She needs another style.

  • Not applicable

    yikes. and that’s coming from a person who has had a pretend relationship with Jon Hamm for years.

  • Anapestic

    This is something they did deliberately to look downscale, right? I just have some trouble believing Elisabeth Moss (or nearly anyone) would own a coat quite that dreary: it’s like someone asked for clinical depression to be turned into outerwear. I like her hat. Also, I am choosing to believe that she had an agreement with the photographer to only be photographed from the knees up and that she has since hunted him down and killed him.

    • Deb

      Though the coat is Burberry, you can see the lining in the first photo.

  • Judy_J

    Looks like Peggy stole Don’s fedora.

  • Shawn EH

    Dressing for an incognito lunch at Olive Garden?

  • Gatto Nero

    They’re trying to be unobtrusive, though — right?

  • cocohall

    If he lost the scarf, he would be fine. Not stylish, but fine. The scarf is attention seeking in a way that fights with the rest of the “I’m blending in” straight dude look. As for Miss Moss, Uggs are FTO (For Teens Only). My daughters wear them all the time, but with an oversized sweatshirt and yoga pants. It is a look that practically screams “I have a test in Trig today and was up all night writing a paper on Lord of the Flies.” Even they would NEVER deploy them with a skirt or dress or with a trench coat. Plus, is she color blind? Red glasses. Blue hat. Black dress. Taupe trench,Brown Uggs. What the hell?

  • MsKitty

    Uggs are a bane on society. That is all.

    • jilly_d

      Could not agree more. I thought they would have died by now, but alas. And wearing them with bare legs is the worst sin. Shame, Peggy.

  • imspinningaround

    Hot Mess 1 and Hot Mess 2. Go home, start again.

  • gitchygitchymama

    They say they’re made of sheep skin and their formaldehyde saturated fur…………but all I ever see is Camel toe and Cow butt.

  • Bare leggs and Uggs. She fails at fashion.
    He looks like a stalker.

    • alyce1213

      That made me laugh. It is a stalker cap.

  • LuluinLaLa

    I know that most celebrities do, but it breaks my heart a little seeing that he smokes in real life. Oh well… he’d probably break my heart for other reasons, anyway…

    • Catsss

      I wasn’t quite sure if that was a cigarette at first. He is holding it weird.

      • alyce1213

        That’s just the way guys hold cigarettes, I think, especially when they’re being surreptitious. Women hold cigarettes differently, for the most part.

      • KinoEye

        Willing to bet my bottom dollar he was holding it that way in the hopes the camera wouldn’t pick it up so much. Also an old trick for holding the “other” cigarettes in a way that wouldn’t draw so much attention if you were toking in public.

    • TigerLaverada

      Hard to imagine how he’d smoke so constantly as Don Draper without smoking as Jon Hamm. You (well, an ex-smoker like me) can tell that he’s really inhaling, not ‘mouthing’ the smoke and blowing it out like non-smokers do. I think it wouldn’t be hard to end up smoking, working on this show.

  • Little_Olive

    Whoa, why am I not hating this (except, OF COURSE, for the cap and the Uggs)? They look hot and relaxed. I’m not seeing the mess the other BKs are.

  • Darren Nesbitt

    STL Blues! 🙂

  • frannyprof

    JHamm looks like he’s holding an imaginary cigarette.

  • suzq

    I’m going to be in New York this weekend and was wondering what to wear….

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Anything but this.

  • SugarSnap108

    I can’t decide whether Uggs or Crocs are the greatest fashion blight on earth. Do I have to choose?

    • SparkleNeely

      Yes. You must choose. Crocs feet down! Fugliest footwear evar. At least Uggs kept my feet warm in sub zero Michigan temps. I now live in South Florida. It’s 88 now. Ah…..palm trees and lizards.

      • TigerLaverada

        Agreed. Crocs out-fug Uggs. Not that I’d wear either one.

  • Pepper Collins

    This makes me smile. They look terrible, but I can’t help but smile!

  • MilaXX

    John looks fine, but I can’t with the uggs Lizzie is wearing.

  • Tricia

    I feel like I’m seeing some rare, endangered species in their natural habitat, haha
    Jon Hamm looks like he has some grey going on under that cap, but maybe I’m mistaken. Not that that would be a bad thing. He’s only getting hotter with age.

  • Jecca2244

    uggs and a Burberry trench. eek! meghhhh at the cigarette.

  • Danielle

    Elizabeth looks adorable until you get to her calves. Sigh.

  • Agatha Guilluame


  • ThaliaMenninger

    I’m trying to construct some argument whereby they threw layers over their costumes for a quick break from the set. Because why otherwise would she be wearing those boots, if not after a long day in heels for Peggy? And the dress might just be a Peggy costume, right? But there is not one stitch on him that looks like anything Don Draper would wear, so… Yeah, I think my argument goes nowhere and they’re both just messy and sad.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    i love the second photo. “coffee up over there?” “coffee up there?” … and the uggs: she has to, doesn’t she? it’s, like, part of her national identity.

  • CT14

    Oh, the scroll down fug of Elizabeth’s uggs!

    I laughed out loud. Literally.

    I can’t even be upset by this because it’s just too ridiculous.

  • Alloy Jane

    Ugh, those stupid shoes. I would really hope that the cast members would be friends after all that time spent together. It’s nice to see them hanging out.

    • alyce1213

      I’ve read or heard her say recently that the cast plays Heads Up! on the set all day and shooting scenes is kind of an interruption. So it seems they’re very chummy (or bored).

      • Alloy Jane

        lol Can you imagine being on set and having to be on guard for random flying objects? Too funny.

  • oat327

    Elisabeth Moss is Peggy. Cute, a little bit of a mess, with a “coat inspired by menswear.”

  • ashtangajunkie

    Uggs, Elisabeth Moss? COME ON.

  • matica

    For as classically good looking as he is, it always surprises me how goofy he looks when left to his own devices. I understand why he might not want to dress like his character, but there has to be a happy medium between a Don Draper costume and . . . whatever this is.

  • crash1212

    Great trench and love the hat on Peggy.

    • Coco Cornejo

      Hate, hate, HATE her footwear.

  • girlsaturday

    I was totally on board with Moss’s outfit, until the Uggs. God damn it those Uggs. Unless you are shuffling home with a hangover that measures on the richter scale, you do not wear Uggs in public.

    That being said, I want to see the episode where Don and Peggy go on an insane weekend-long bender, get in a fistfight (Peggy totally kicks Don’s ass), fly out to LA to TP Ted’s house, fly back to leave a live raccoon in Lou’s office, resolve all their issues and become friends again and wear sunglasses in the office all day Monday because they’re both hungover enough to justify wearing Uggs in public (but they haven’t been invented yet).

    • Alanna

      Holy crap. That is beautiful. I dabble in fanfic sometimes, and I might just have to look into doing something along those lines. So, mind if I borrow? (And totally fine if you say no!)

      • girlsaturday

        Go right ahead! I’d love to see the finished product too.

  • Shoelover1512

    Her dress looks really cute…

  • msdamselfly

    He looks great. Love the scarf. She looks kind’ve a mess

  • AvaLehra

    Uggs!! 🙁

  • judybrowni

    Despite sunny day temps in the 60s last week, there was also a cold 20 mile per hour wind blowing in L.A..

    Hence the scarf and the Uggs.

    Had to break out my Uggs, too. (Screw you, it got cold!)

    Now it’s back to 80 degrees.

  • Micaela Cannon

    The uggs with that dress….how basic of you Lizzie.

  • GeoDiva

    Uggs must die NOW!

  • Cate

    Hahaha, I know it’s just awkward angles capturing a few seconds, but both are acting like they literally don’t see each other.

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    Is she hearing voices? WTF is she looking all around for?

  • malarson2

    They are in NYC for something work-related and he stepped out for a quick smoke and a walk down the block. She decided to join him at the last minute and threw on the (I think fake) Uggs and the hat and glasses because that’s what was sitting there and that’s she does. There is no reason to have hate in your heart because of that. They were all about a chat and a break so 40 minutes of figuring out what they were going to wear for it never crossed their minds. Just focus on the fact that they are hanging out in NYC! Together! It’s so great of an idea to me that the rest doesn’t matter. It’s ok. Everything is ok.
