Mad Men Cast at the “God’s Pocket” Premiere

Posted on May 05, 2014

The cast of Mad Men came out in Los Angeles to celebrate the premiere of “God’s Pocket,” directed by fellow castmate John Slattery and co-starring fellow castmate Christina Hendricks. Results? Mixed, of course! We are talking about the cast of Mad Men, after all, bless their hearts.

Let’s judge them.



Kiernan Shipka

This is pretty, but we don’t much like that waist-obscuring detail. The color looks fabulous on her, though.



John Slattery

He’s a silver fox and that’s a nice suit, but he looks like a businessman on his third happy hour special.



Elisabeth Moss

Mad-Men-Gods-Pocket-Premiere-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (6)

We have no idea how someone doesn’t know those shoes are butt-ugly.



Jay R. Ferguson

Headbands are so on trend this spring.

This is why we’re hard on her. Because when she gets it right, she looks amazing. The makeup’s a bit off and we don’t love the shoes or the little bow, but these are quibbles.



Jon Hamm

Mad-Men-Gods-Pocket-Premiere-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (12)We’d hit that.

But he’d have to lose the hat first.

  • Danielle

    I see Jon brought little Hamm with him.

    • CPK1

      not so little!

    • Alfred Cox

      Little Hamm HA

  • NBG

    Yes, Elisabeth’s shoes are fug but I barely noticed them compared to the horrid shape of the dress.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Seriously. There’s a titscrepancy happening and it’s no bueno.

      • CPK1

        titscrepancy plus ass ugly shoes = super feo

    • Carly Clement

      There is something weird with the stripes that make her boobs look very wonky!

      • holla

        is there some medical reason for that? she has had a few of these titscrepancy of late.

  • Mismarker

    It might be down to the way she’s posing, but I hate what that dress is doing to Elisabeth’s Moss’s breasts.

    • Kitten Mittons

      It looks like it’s twisted, or needs to be pulled straight. The lines are all off.

      Those booties, though, jesus.

    • Me too. Does the dress have an overlay that’s twisted or something? It’s hard to tell.

    • Lori

      Thank goodness it’s not just me. There is something very strange going on there.

    • Her poor boobs are making me so sad. It kind of looks like they’re frowning, though, so I guess that’s appropriate.

  • &theJets

    To think of where Stan (Jay R. Ferguson) started and to where it appears he is heading…wow! And Jon Hamm is just too cute.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Is Jon at a different event than everyone else? Kiernan, all wrong. Even stars fall sometimes.

    • Faerie Nuff

      I wondered if he was there to pick someone up in his taxi, in 1985.

      • Heather

        I’d ride in his taxi.

  • MartyBellerMask

    God’s Pocket? I’ll take Hamm’s Pocket.

  • MilaXX

    As much as I like the color, I don’t like Kiernan’s dress at all. Not sure what is going on with Elizabeth either. The dress is giving her a titscrepancy and the shoes are hella ugly. Christina looks great and I can over look the shoes. Lastly I don’t mind long hair on guys, but I draw the line at headbands.

    • Violina23

      Kiernan’s dress looks like it has a blue piano on the waist… so strange, but agree the color is stunning.

      Slattery needs a haircut

      I kinda adore Hamm here, but maybe it’s just refreshing since Don has been such a train wreck this season, so he cleans up nice 🙂

      • Absolutely – my first thought was “Why is there a keyboard around her waist?”

        • zenobar

          I thought immediately of those piano-key-motif skinny neckties and suspenders of the early 80s.

  • lexilexi

    Christina’s dress look incredibly cheap.

    • Bobbie_Loblaw

      They so often do! What is with that? How can a woman so beautiful be so freaking bad at wearing clothes?

    • deelup

      I think her expression adds to that. The whole thing reads mafia moll to me.

    • kimmeister

      The silhouette is great on her, but I can’t figure out if I’m seeing her black strapless bra through the sheer part, or if that’s just the design. Any dress that makes you wonder that is a fail.

      • Glammie

        It’s the design–sweetheart neckline under the sheer–I actually like that part, she pretty much always needs some sort of vee or line to avoid the uniboob look, which is really bad on her. So I give her a pass on that because she got the basic idea right. Make-up’s not good though.

  • Kristen

    I’ve never wrote this before, but I don’t like Kiernan’s dress. The colors beautiful, she’s beautiful, but I don’t like the details of the skirt or the weird waist thing.

    Jon looks hott (even with the stupid hat). Elisabeth would look fine with better shoes. Roger looks drunk. With a few tweaks, Christina could look Joan-hot.

    What’s Mona wearing?

  • But whoa, back the truck up.. what on earth happened with Elisabeth Moss and her feet? That outfit might be killa with different shoes and if the titscrepancy could be fixed. I have a sad for how this turned out. Shoe malfunction? Shoes for the outfit got left behind and these were the only available shoes?

    I always feel so happy to see the gorgeous Christina but then I feel hurty when I see her feet and whatever bad for her foot shoe choice has been picked out. Poor girl is gonna need some serious podiatry treatment. If only we could find her some shoes that would let her big toe.. be her big toe, and not squished across to where her second and third toes ought to be. I know those shoes are out there. I find them for myself. They are not ugly. They exist. Please deities let her stylist find them soon..

  • Emily Dagger

    To paraphrase Joe Cocker, Hamm can leave the hat on.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Jon Hamm looks a bit casual compared to the rest, but still..le sigh. I think there is something strange going on with Christina’s dress, or maybe it’s just the flash. It almost looks like you can see her bra under the bustier part of the dress, but maybe that is just another layer of the dress? Stan’s headband cracks me up! Kiernan once again wins it all (even if the belt thing is a bit problematic)

  • Aidan B

    Christina wins this round, hands down. Jon’s look isn’t bad, but he and Christina could be at two completely different events. Lizzie, ditch the stank booties. Jay, go home and start over. John, put on a tie and comb your hair. Kiernan…you can’t win them all, sweetie.

  • Heather

    A dude in a headband? What is this world coming to???

    • tallgirl1204

      Looks like a local to me (ETA local to me, that is. Hippie town, Arizona) Except a local would have the headband and a bun.

      • Heather

        Ha! 🙂

  • teensmom99

    What can I say? I love Slattery and I think it works. But where’s his wife? I am counting the minutes for Mad Style to see what you wrote about Talia Balsam’s clothes. I kind of like the way Ferguson has taken Stan’s look and fast forwarded it a few years. As to Kiernan–no, sweetie, you have much nicer things.

    • ninanan10 .

      Is it me, or is John Slattery starting to resemble Glenn Close?

  • Haley Buchanan

    Joanie is looking mighty hot in that LBD! Also Jon Hamm is looking mighty hot in everything always.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    Jay Ferguson, I know we all want to be Lupita but channeling her Oscar headband isn’t the way to go about it.

    • VicD

      But, I have a lotta love for a khaki suit, especially with a blue shirt, well deployed pocket square and … can those be .?.?.?. blue suede shoes!

  • Anna

    Getting off-duty college professor from John Hamm and I am into it. Mmmm…Professor Hamm.

    Sorry, what were we talking about again?

  • jonnyf8

    What hat? I see nothing above the belt. Again, if he wants to stop people talking about it he needs to stop going commando.

    • Heather

      No. He doesn’t need to stop.

  • R.A.

    Is Kiernan Shipka even human? HOW does a teenager possess that kind of grace, taste and poise? I’m coming up on 26 and I’m light years away from being as stylish or cool as she is. Also, eyebrows. ETA: Not wild about her dress but it does not deter from her overall loveliness.

    John Slattery’s a fox. A rumpled fox, but a fox nonetheless.

    • Malia C.

      She really is becoming the gold standard for child actors.

  • Sarah

    I totes thought Mr. Ferguson was wearing headphones, and thought “how rude.” Then I realized it was a headband, and thought “how dumb.” I don’t know why the designer put that waist piano on Ms. Shipka, but it needs to go and then I’d like the dress. The color looks great on her.

    • L’Anne

      I kept thinking why does he want to be a wood nymph?

  • KT

    I would definitely hit that Jon Hamm ass, as well. He’s always handsome but I’m rarely drawn to him like I am right now. This is a great look for him, and he’s…. filling out everything quite well. DEFINITELY needs to lose the hat though.

    Christina looks great, but wtf is happening underneath the dress? Am I looking at her bra? I don’t know what that strip of fabric is, but it’s totally distracting. I guess I’m going to have to stare at Jon Hamm’s bulge again.

  • tallgirl1204

    Oh, I see what someone meant in the last set of comments, that Jon Hamm’s natural eyes are totally Dick Whitman. I have never seen that expression on Don’s face.

  • AC Simons

    Listen up Mr. Ferguson, Ron Swanson would not approve of that headband, no sir no way.

  • Dagney

    I really adore Elisabeth Moss, and I want her to find the right stylist who “gets” her. I think she has striking, though unusual face, and I her look could be so out of the ballpark…She always presents in these weird half-looks. A dramatic leather dress, Yay! Then she pairs it boring whatever hair, and shoes from the sale rack at Payless, which make her amazing legs look stumpy.

    What about some killa, dramatic, NON-PLATFORM pumps for that dress? What about a cool, Louise Brooks-ian inverted bob? Or tie the hair back to let that beautiful face shine? What about an unusual set of earrings that are meant to be noticed to play off the dramatic dress?


  • shopgirl716

    Headbands on a dude? I just can’t. Jon Hamm looks much better than Don Draper has lately.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    I will take John Slattery or Christina Hendricks any way they want to show up, but I snort/laughed at Jon Hamm. I don’t know if that’s the reaction he was going for.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I know. It looks like he’s about to audition for “Newsies”.

  • MaggieMae

    Love Slattery. That smile. That hair. A well-fitted suit. A crisp white shirt. Come to mama.

  • dea

    I had a critical commentary on the outfits… then I saw John Hamm and all thought was lost.

  • stubbornthoughts


    Annnnnnd I’m dead.

    • Man Dala

      I’ve just posted about that LOL

  • Alloy Jane

    I don’t mind the headband on Rizzo. Not sure if they’re still filming, but if they are, obviously he can’t just cut it off. How else do you keep hair outta your face? Besides, he’s looking like a washed off Dude and I can’t hold that against him.

    First the penis dress and now the feathered keyboard dress. We’re counting this look as Miss Shipka’s Mistake #2.

    I don’t think there’s a pair of boxers out there that can reign in Jon’s ham. I hate your boots, Pegs. Roger looks like he just woke up from sleeping in a barn. Joan’s shoes aren’t impressive but they are nice. I don’t think I like her with heavy eye makeup though. Seriously though Peggy, I hate your shoes and your dress is crooked and looks like it was made from electrical tape.

    • VicD

      All Roger needs is a bit of mud on his suit.

  • Imasewsure

    I don’t think the makeup or those shoes are “quibbles” for our dear Christina… “awful” is the word I would use (and I’m using my nice words today).. the word for the clutch would just be “boring”

  • Pennymac

    Is it wrong that on these Mad Men public appearances type posts my eyes go immediately to Mr. Hamms crotchal area and Ms Hendricks boobal area?
    Yay Christina! The girls look great!
    *cough cough ahem* Well done Mr. Hamm. The hat is a bridge too far, though.I suppose it will come off of your head when I run my fingers through your hair, however.

  • decormaven

    Holy cow, those shooties. Elisabeth Moss is going to nail the Ugliest Footwear award this year.

  • JauntyJohn

    Hamm got my gay gasp today.
    And while I rarely find myself in disagreement with TLo, like the song says, “you can leave your hat on.”
    But JUST the hat.

  • eruannalle

    that’s not a bad outfit jon hamm’s wearing, but it looks really… not appropriate for the event. i mean looking at the level of dressed up everyone else is, he just looks like didn’t bother at all/doesn’t care very much. come on, jon. come on.

  • Kent Roby

    Kiernan’s dress is pretty tricky with those pleated piano keys around her waist, yet she still manages to look great and age-appropriate. It’ll be interesting to see how she dresses when she moves into adulthood (still eons away).

    • SparkleNeely

      Not really. My daughter is the same age and…..they grow up fast. The next 4 years will go by at Internet speed, just like the last 4 have. That said, KS still looks good.

  • Laura Abrahamsen

    For a WASP girl on Cleveland’s West Side, the Irish Catholic boys were the ones I wasn’t supposed to date. Probably why I have an almost Pavlovian response to the look John Slattery is serving up here. I can’t not like it.

  • Kelly

    *sings* “Jon Hamm’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay. . .” And I’m amusing myself by estimating how long it took J Slattery and his stylist to achieve that “casual mussed” hairstyle. Somebody’s trying *way* too hard.

    • L’Anne

      Everything on him looks toussled. Makes me wonder what he and Talia were up to in the limo…

  • marlie

    First, Jon Hamm looks like he stumbled onto the res carpet after having brunch. It’s an OK look, but totally out of place.

    Christina Hendricks looks GORGEOUS. Full stop.

    I actually commented to the bf last night that John Slattery is a hottie. His white hair totally does it for me (I’ve crushed on Anderson Cooper for YEARS).

    Lizzie’s boots are hideous, AND they don’t go.

    Jay Ferguson gets a pass on the hair, and otherwise, he looks good.

    Kiernan… even in an outfit that I don’t love, she still looks looks worlds better than most of the grownups.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I hate that dress on Christina. I hate the sheer black fabric, I hate that the shoulders seams emphasize how wide her bust is, I hate the bodice making her breasts look saggy, I hate that bow.

    Kiernan’s young enough and cute enough to turn a weird dress into merely quirky.

    Are you being sarcastic about the headband, uncles? Please say you are. He looks like he’s about to wash his face.

    Totally with you on Elisabeth’s hideous boots, Slattery’s unkemptness dimming his hotness, and Hammn’s cap.

    • SparkleNeely

      Yes to Hamm, Slattery & Moss! I had the same comments. Still like Hendricks and Miss Kiernan. I think they were sarcastic about the headband. It’s just stupid. This guy’s a goofball.

  • sagecreek

    Oh, it’s comforting to know that Kiernan can indeed screw up occasionally.

  • Judy_J

    Jay needs to trim that ‘stache and lose the headband.

    • Malia C.

      They’re in the middle of filming the final seven, so he’s likely stuck with it for the time being.

  • suzq

    Off topic…but I miss Philip Seymour Hoffman. I really do.

    • Gatto Nero


  • brown-eyed girl

    Those shoes. That headband. And then Jon Hamm: wouldn’t want him to make an effort. Sheesh.

    • andi56

      My words exactly! : )

  • nannypoo

    This might be the first time I didn’t think Kiernan looks adorable, and she can fix that by simply removing that waist thingy.

    • Gatto Nero

      Agree about the dress detail, though I love that she takes chances.

  • Mothra

    I’ll have me a Hamm sammich right now, please. I’ll even take that hat. I also cannot stop looking at his hand in his pocket tacitly pointing to his crotch. Love adorable Kiernan but that weird piano keyboard waist thing is a MUST GO. E-Moss needs a new stylist. I don’t know why she wears those short dresses, all of which appear to have the same shape (fit and flare from Macys?) and seem ill-fitted and I don’t even WANT to know what those booties smell like. I don’t think Christina looks that great, but perhaps it is that sour puss resting bitchface look. Are headbands for men really on-trend or am I just having a stroke?

  • Malia C.

    Could not agree with your more re: John Slattery.

    And Elisabeth Moss’ shoes? Oy. I scrolled quickly and missed them but saw your comment and thought, “Are they really THAT bad?”

    They are soul-destroying.

  • alainalynn

    *Drooling for Hamm*

    • Man Dala

      Aren’t we all?

  • Stan didn’t do much for me in his mid-sixties iteration, but lately he’s giving me the full-on vapors. When he’s not wearing a headband. He can keep the polka dots. I’m living for Christina’s hair, and a little sad that Elizabeth Moss’s perfect dress is being wrecked with a bad-posture titscrepancy and high-fashion gumboots.

  • Veronika Pashkina

    1. I want to touch Jay R. Ferguson’s beard, and I don’t normally have strong opinions about beards. 2. This movie looks really really good.

  • Anne

    So Jay R. Ferguson is pretty much Stan in real life. Groovy.

  • sienna elm

    oh – were I to hit that too!

  • LambeeBaby

    John Slattery looks fantastic in that color. His is indeed a silver fox.

  • Not applicable

    LOL- i can only think about all various shots of Jon Hamm’s commando style when I see the IRL pics… and I’d hit that too! 😉

  • Jacob Bowen

    I’m a bacon man myself, but I will GLADLY have a slice of that Hamm today…but he needs to remove one, well all, of his shirts before we start anything.

  • Qitkat

    Jon Hamm is all: yeah, I know, stop looking if it bothers you…
    Jay Ferguson is all: what? yeah, it’s a headband, it’s a sans-a-belt khaki suit, the Dude wishes he ever looked this good…
    Christina Hendricks is all: listen, my wig is on straight, I hoisted the girls, I wore real heels, and I am selling bitchface because January isn’t here, thankyouverymuch…
    Kiernan Shipka is all: so did I, and I painted my toenails, I am serene, and I am selling this hairy dress…
    Elisabeth Moss is all: these are my comfy shoes, isthereaproblemI’vegotablister, no I didn’t get a pedicure, and I am selling this pin-tucked hefty bag…
    and finally
    John Slattery is all: I barely got cleaned up from that damn mud scene, no time to blow dry my hair, silver foxes rule anywhichway…

  • ktr33

    Worst choice I’ve seen on Kieran yet. Elisabeth Moss … Uhh .,.

  • Man Dala

    Jon Hamm is packing quite the lunch, as usual.

  • Sweetvegan

    What? No criticism of Hamm showing up like he just came in from walking the dog, when everyone else is in cocktail dresses and suits?

  • girlsaturday

    Not sure if it’s her posture or the dress, but the striping on Elisabeth Moss’ dress is misaligned in such a way as to read as scoliosis.

    • martha

      I think her dress is too tight and that is why it does not lie straight

  • CommentsByKatie

    I can appreciate John Slattery not wanting to look like Roger, but ‘Roger is put together so I am going to look like a slob’ is not the correct way to do that. Facepalm. Everybody else looks fabulous.

  • rebeemoon

    That waist thingy on Kiernan looks like a crushed piano. A crushed blue piano. Cannot believe the headband on Ferguson. That’s a first for me.

  • bxbourgie

    “We’d hit that” gave me SUCH joy! Love love love!

  • 28judy

    The women should wear hose. their legs look awful.

  • Alfred Cox

    You guys are right to be hard on her (Christina) because when she puts in a little effort, no one even comes close. Seriously, she looks incredible.

    I like Kiernan’s look, even with the wonky weird waistband. The top looks very First Communion, but overall she’s working it.

  • mary_berry

    Lizzie looks all twisty. I guess it’s the way she’s standing, but it’s causing the horizontal lines on her dress to make my OCD twitch.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    he complains about people talking about his junk but he is always SHIPPING MAJOR PACKAGE.
