Jones, Moss, Paré, and Hendricks attend “Mad Men” Los Angeles Screening

Posted on June 04, 2014

The Sterling Cooper gang got together one last time in 2014, just to give us something to talk about.  Let’s do a deep, semiotic analysis of all their outfits, just for old time’s sake.

Oh, hell. Are you kidding us? We love ourselves some Mad Style, but when we type the last period on the last sentence of the last one for the season? We do a little cheer, not gonna lie. That shit’s some work.

Anyway, let’s just bitch at their clothes.

Gotta say, that’s a really cute casual-chic look. We don’t love the hair, but the rest of it’s working great. Way to remind us that you’re not Betty Francis, Jan Jo. Please never stop serving bitchface at us. You are the Zen Master of Bitchface.

 

Elisabeth Moss

Also cute! The shoes are fussier than we’d like, but this might be the cutest thing we’ve seen her wear all year. Casual chic seems to be the right way to go for her.

 

Jessica Paré

How odd that she showed up in a Betty Francis dress.

This is just okay. She seems a little overdressed for the event and it comes off a little prissy. Of course we hate the silly putty shoes.

 

 

Christina Hendricks

Oh dear.

We can already hear the vociferous debate that’s about to erupt over this one. Some will hate it; some will defend. Only one will make it out ALIVE.

Sorry. Got carried away. We go back and forth on this, depending on the angle. We’re surprised by how good it looks in profile, for instance. But from the front, it’s pure pajamas. And we don’t think she can handle that color at all.

    • Sarah

      Everyone but Lizzy is rocking some crazy eyes. Not sure what that’s about. January and Lizzy look amazing. Jessica looks like she needs some black pumps and a limo to a fancier event. And Christina…oh Christina. Serving up wrinkly-crotch, polyester 70s realness. I want to weep at what that pajama jumpsuit does to her amazing figure. And is that the care tag I see in the profile pic? Snip that out first thing, honey. Or better yet, put on a different outfit.

      • Valdri8

        No shit- no one can think to remove the tag, or tell her not to leave the house when the zipper is being strained at the waist. Good freaking grief!

      • sienna elm

        Good eye!!

      • EveEve

        Lizzy: “woo-hoo! hiatus y’all”
        JJO: “right? got my weekend bag packed and heading go LAX as soon as this shindig wraps up”
        Jessica “sigh. I wish. gotta stay all dolled up and in front of the cameras while I try desperately to land another gig.”
        CH: “whatever”

    • clatie

      why is there someone sticking their fingers under CH’s boob? Is it one of us trying to rip that hideous Blanche Devereaux reject?

      • crash1212

        Looks like boob-finger was going for her hand and then Christina shifted her arm? In any event….awkward!

        • Anna

          That’s what I’m thinking it must be since in the pic above it, the phantom arm looks like it’s trying to guide CH somewhere.

      • demidaemon

        Amazingly, I did not notice that on the first pass, as horribly blasted in the face I was by the fluorescent fuschianess of it all. But that is also hella wrong for different reasons.

      • sienna elm

        Blanche Devereaux was the first one I thought of too!

      • MoHub

        “They’re eal, and they’re fabulous!”

    • demidaemon

      1) Awful hair. Cute top. Gives her pooch in the pants. NO.
      2) Proportionally off. The skirt is too short and it is doing weird things. OKAY.
      3) My favorite off the bunch. It might be a little bit off tone for the event, but she looks cute and well done. YES.
      4) AWFUL. AWFUL. Horrible color. Looks like a sweatsuit for wearing at the nursing home. HELL NO.

      • Raspberry2012

        Everything you said!

    • Sarah

      Oh, man. I have a feeling CH is gonna see that pic in the future, and feel really, really bad.

    • dashwoodstole

      I love the idea of Christina Hendricks in a jumpsuit, but it really isn’t this one. JJ looks fine, poor hair, don’t like the cutesy bows on her jumper but the fact carries it all. Elisabeth Moss looks great – like, before I even got to your caption there I was thinking ‘Damn, this might be the best I’ve ever seen her look.’ Jessica Pare – whatever.

    • smayper

      That boob finger is making tears run down my face, I’m laughing so hard. WHY did the photographer release it? It’s just mean!

      • Sarah

        A good melon should be juuust about *this* size.

    • smayper

      “Here, hon. Just tucking it back into your bra.”

    • MilaXX

      January and Lizzie get A’s. Ladies, you’re dismissed. Jessica, gets a C+, it’s a bit frumpy and boring for someone who looks so fabulous on the show. You can leave as well, but step it up next time. *sigh* Christina dear. first of all us busy gals, NEVER wear bags strapped across our chest unless we are riding the A train at rush hour. This look also needs a belt to break up all the color and define your waist. Pleats are rarely anyone’s friend. You are not the exception to that. Side profile looks nice, but the over all look is a bit wrinkly and sloppy. D- do try better dear.

      • Sarah

        Not only is it slung poorly, it looks too small to me. You can’t have ALL that pink and then a little dinky bag – it looks like a kid’s bag.

        • MilaXX

          If the chain was tucked inside and she was carrying it as a clutch, I might not dislike it as much.

          • Sarah

            Yes, that’s a good idea. A clutch can get away with being much smaller. It DOES “go,” I’ll give it that.

    • mommyca

      Love JJ, Lizzie and Jessica… Christina: just no to the bad PJs!!!

    • FibonacciSequins

      Joan’s outfit is something my mother would have worn in the mid-80s. Everyone else looks cute.

      I miss them. *sob*

    • Sobaika

      Begone, purple thing!

      It is an evil.

    • DeniseSchipani

      January Jones looks like a (bored, pissed off, but pretty) teenager. She was definitely still padded as Betty, don’t you think, even after the character slimmed down? Jones is SKINNY.

    • MilaXX

      I’m up to season 6 on my Mad Men rewatch. I have a few quibbles like how Roger had 2 heart attacks in season 1(2?), was taking nitroglycerin pills in later seasons and by season 4 was back to drinking and whoring as if none of that ever occurred. Still hate the scary Black man in season 4. In fact I hate that whole episode where Joan & Roger get mugged and she gets knocked up by a quickie they have in a random doorway.That one gets my vote for worst episode of the series. Hate creepy grandma robber in season 6 as well. That said, I can almost understand Joan’s distrust of Don this season even though the anger still reads OTT. I may change my mind once I finish season 6 and rewatch 7, but it seems Joan is just distrustful and tired of the firm’s success revolving around Don’s whims. For almost every windfall he brought, he also brought as many negative hits to the company. I think she just wants safe and stable.

      • Musicologie

        Grandma Ida was, to me, the single scariest moment of the entire series. I was terrified for Sally. (Less so for Bobby and Gene, since they didn’t pose the threat to Ida that Sally did.)

        • MilaXX

          That’s a bit of my issue with it. In a show that for the most part has kept it’s African American characters to a bare minimum to trot out the “scary Back person” character was offensive.

          • warontara

            I know what you mean. They could’ve cast either of those characters any way they wanted, but they went with Black Americans. It’s such a thoughtful show, down to the last detail, so I feel it was a deliberate choice.

          • G. M. Palmer

            The stereotypical mugger in NYC in the 1960s was a black guy. Would you rather have them be true to the feel of the 1960s or politically correct for the 2010s?

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

              The stereotypical mugger in the 2010s is probably a black guy too – doesn’t mean the stereotype actually reflects reality, then or now.

            • charlotte

              I don’t think that this is what Mila is talking about. It is just that Weiner chose two scenes with scary black characters while mostly ignoring the existence of non-criminal black people (at least before Dawn and Shirley came along). He could have found a different way of getting Joan knocked up.

            • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

              Are you arguing in favor of using stereotypes in writing?

            • MilaXX

              I could see once, but nope, not buying the grandma and I’m pretty sure black people weren’t the only people mugging folks in NYC in the 60′s.

      • G. M. Palmer

        Roger’s still taking nitro pills in season 4. Indeed, in the episode after the one you dislike for some reason, Roger takes the pills after LGJr tells him that Lucky’s leaving.

        • MilaXX

          and that’s the last time you see him take them.

      • carnush

        I’m still on season 3 of my rewatch, and I’m paying extra attention to Joan/Don. So far it’s a love fest. It’s such a joy to watch it all over again.

        • MilaXX

          They don’t have much direct interaction until after the whole Jaguar fiasco. She gets pissed at him for the while sleeping with the sect’y thing, but responds passive aggressively by giving him Ms. Blankenship. I still think the portrayal we saw threat to her financial security I guess I could see it by looking at all the ups and downs Don has caused the firm.

          I’m waiting to see what the second half if the season brings, but I don’t think this merger is going to happen or if it does happen, I don’t think everyone will be as happy as the first half finale made things seem. Watch how many times McCann comes after the firm or what Kenny says after he leave the firm that he was at once McCann acquired them.

    • LadyVimes

      Oh Christina. You hurt me.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      The color on Christina is not what worries me, it’s the body of the person that parachuted and hasn’t been found yet.

      Also, January Jones looks gorgeous.

      • ConnieBV

        It made me think more prison jumpsuit. Barbie prison.

        • kbshee

          I had that jumpsuit in 1980, I swear to you. That exact color.

    • matildarf

      Does she not have a best friend? Who would let her out of the house with this on? I haz a sad for her.

      • Frankie Carter

        This made me laugh so damn hard

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      Oh, Christina. What are we going to do with you? A simple style rule: never leave the house in anything that makes you look like the lost Teletubby.

      • Raspberry2012

        Something about “What are we going to do with you?” just made me laugh so hard! It’s like we’re all collective frustrated parents. “Goddamn it, young lady, we have TOLD you, time and time again!”

    • jilly_d

      I totally Want to Be JJ in that outfit. If that jumpsuit were navy, I would adore it. Kinda love the idea of a silky jumpsuit on Joanie.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Did y’all sort them by rank on purpose?

    • Glam Dixie

      Christiana showed up in scrubs. Love January and surprisingly also Miss Moss (who I usually think looks awful). Jessica’s dress I don’t like but at least it isn’t straight from the hospital.

      • Wink

        Yes, Elizabeth Moss looks very good here (finally)!

    • malarson2

      I’m sorry if any of you are one of them, but I’m scared of the ‘regular’ people in these pics. Why are they so close? I sense pushy pushiness. I don’t like it to the point of even missing the boob grab the first time around. When I did finally see it – thank you, BKs, for pointing it out (pun intended), it only served to prove my point further. Yikes.

    • Anna

      Billowy fabrics always look huge on busty gals – even tall busty gals.CH is still hot though. Love JJ’s look, but I wish the bow-ties were Scottie dogs.

      • matildarf

        When I was cute, cool and hip (1980′s) I had a black shirt with white scottie dogs all over it, one was red. I LOVED that shirt and wished I had it today. Thanks Anna for bringing back a good memory!

    • Danielle West

      Hendricks = Blanche Deveraux

    • marlie

      I like January Jones’ and Elizabeth Moss’ outfits. I really love Jessica Pare’s even if it’s a little too much for the event. And Christina… she makes me want to cry. This outfit – the head-to-toe, monochromatic, loungewear look – is SO dated and aging. Plus, this particular color is dated and aging. I don’t like anything about it.

    • Tanya Wade

      On the one hand, Christina looks so comfortable. On the other hand….oof.

    • Qitkat

      While this is a beautiful color, it is so ill-fitted that Christina just looks like she came out of the fitting room without bothering to look in a mirror. And I love Jessica’s dress, it doesn’t remind me of Betty Francis at all, she looks modern and cute. Elisabeth looks normal and pretty, and January looks quite young and sassy and the most comfortable.

    • Imasewsure

      It’s a hiddy jumpsuit… and that color is a big no for her I think

    • PinkyK

      It looks as if Christina/Joan needs to do laundry and all she had left was a very old (with the elastic shot) bra.

    • Mothra

      I simply cannot abide JJ’s hair. CAN NOT.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      I can hear Delta Burke seeing this on Christina Hendricks and saying to herself… ” Oh… honey…NO… not that thing again!”

    • http://bedmadeofflowers.tumblr.com/ Mama_Z

      Fuchsia is never good with that tone of red hair.

    • Jessie Melcher Brown

      Some people think redheads look good in purple. But it only works if you have freckles you are trying to minimize, otherwise the color makes us look like we have the flu as it makes us look even paler. As you can see from my picture I have the same coloring (natural redhead and very pale) Christina needs a nice brown or green and something with more structure.

      • sweetestsith

        Purple can be great on a fair red head, but it MUST be a warm purple. Deep plumy/eggplant can be lovely, and on young girls (I do a lot of stage costumes) a bright royal purple occasionally looks great.

        Fuchsia is NEVER on the list however, at least not in my book. What where they thinking?

    • snarkykitten

      Did they all shop at Target? They all look very…normal.

    • sunflwrmoonbeam

      That looks way too much like the ruffly faux-silk blouse I wore in 4th grade.

    • JP

      As a redhead myself, I say HELL NO to redheads wearing pink of any kind. It’s been my pet peeve since childhood.

      I want January’s bag, Elizabeth’s shoes, and Jessica’s dress.

    • lunchcoma

      So Christina Hendricks decided to dress as Barney the Dinosaur for this event. Bizarre.

    • Zuber

      Moss wins the round for looking ultra pretty! Loving the smile!

    • Ruby_Red

      Is Christine sans bra? Not a good move for her.

    • KT

      I just yelled “NO!!!” involuntarily at my computer screen when Miss Christina came up. Oh god honey. NOOOOOOOOO noooooooooo noo no no no.

      That is the absolute worst thing you can put on a body like hers, and she should know that. It’s not accentuating any of her lovely curves, and it is only adding volume and wrinkles and polterwang. It obliterates her shape in every way. The color is great, but doesn’t suit her coloring at all. I’m getting mad the more I look at that thing.

      • Pennymac

        I had to look up polterwang. Now I cannot stop laughing….

    • CatLady

      Oh god are those fuschia scrubs? D:

    • Melissa Mendes

      I miss Lizzy’s blonde asymmetrical hair very much, and when she wore those dresses with leather bodices. JJ seems like an uber beeotch but she always looks fucking perfect. Like a beeotch.

      If I ever have my own fashion blog, I’m calling it Pure Pajamas, thank you TLO.

    • quiltrx

      I am making big-time grabby hands at January’s bag!
      Elizabeth looks SO cute…and I kind of like the fussiness of the shoes with the relatively clean lines of the rest of the outfit.
      Oh, Christina…I’m not sure about this. Maybe I would like this better in a print with this color involved? That’s just an awful lot of solid, bright-colored, hot-looking fabric.

    • Sophie

      Elisabeth Moss has a great smile on these pictures. And I love her and January Jones here. Jessica Paré’s dress is great, but something is going on with her face.

    • Annistella

      January Jones lipstick is superb. Me wants that.

    • Uncle Spike

      Only thing that I really found comment-worthy: January Jones as Claudia Schiffer. I’m SO feeling it. Werq mama!

    • czarina

      WTF!! Where are the mad MEN? Hamm, Slattery, Kartheiser, Ferguson

    • Jessica

      I was at this event last night! I gotta say–they all looked beautiful in real life, but Christina Hendricks was especially striking.

    • smh4748

      Elisabeth seems to have recently discovered that smiling (with teeth!) is a great look for her. I’ve never thought she was a particularly attractive woman (maybe Mad Men S1 biased me), but in a lot of photos featured of her lately, she’s been smiling like this, and she looks a million times prettier.

      But even the sunshine of her smile can’t dispel the dark cloud that is that fuchsia pantsuit. I can’t even agree with T&Lo that it’s acceptable in profile–footie pajamas from the side are still footie pajamas.

    • Gatto Nero

      The fuchsia is not kind to Christina, nor is the shape of that garment. I’m not a fan of jumpsuits anyway, and the cut of this thing — the blouson top and pleated bottom — makes it look like she’s wearing a big, silky onesie.
      The others look fine. January nailed it.

      • SuzBald

        I kind of wish Christina had worn January’s outfit!!!

    • what not

      CH looks like one of the Golden Girls sent to a really fabulous prison. What a weird choice.

      • MoHub

        Fuschia is the New Black.

    • MartyBellerMask

      That is not just Bitchface. It’s I’m-about-to-cut-a-bitch face.

    • ♠♥zee♣♦

      Oh Christina, baby. I ADORE you but that outfit is doing nothing for your shape. The color needs to be toned down a bit too. Everyone else looks great. Except for Jessica…too much for the occasion.

    • Brian G. Cox

      Well who doesn’t wear a Snuggie watching TV once in a while?

      And framing a picture with “Spaces Available” could only be made worse if it was a “Now Serving #__” sign.

    • Cheryl

      I really like Jessica Pare’s dress, it’s flattering and pretty.
      Is it possible Christina Hendricks is punking all the fashion bloggers? Is she pulling a “Dunham”? Did she look in the mirror at her beautiful face and horrible jumpsuit and cackle at the outrage she knew she would cause? Or did she wear her costume from a super-campy, outer space musical that she wrote and performed in during her down time from MM? Did she make a bet with January Jones, and the loser had to wear the purple jumpsuit? There has to be some kind of explanation for this.

      • ktr33

        no, none of these. just really really bad call. Unless she’s pregnant and no one knows yet and she feels like shit, so she came out in her jammies, but shoved her feet into some pumps.

    • Damien W

      Can we just observe a moment of silence for that woman behind Jessica? That poor dear…it’s like Teresa Giudice’s soul took over Reba McEntire’s body. Oy that dress…

    • H2olovngrl

      That is not a redhead color.

    • William Wilson

      January Jones top photo caption contest:

      “ALL I SEE IS A PLACENTA I WANT TO EAT!!!!”

    • warontara

      January’s purse!!! I really need that bag in my life.

    • Scarlet39

      I’ve started to warm up to the idea of jumpsuits, but this one is just bad. It doesn’t look chic, youthful, or modern; it kind of looks like something that is sold on Home Shopping at 3am. It’s just bad. And it’s just too Radiant Orchid for my taste.

    • majorbedhead

      Ooof. Christina looks like she’s wearing a velour one piece tracksuit. That is not a good look.

    • decormaven

      Random thoughts: Christina – channeling the jumpsuit from “Open Sesame” in “Saturday Night Fever.” January – sporting some Meg Ryan hair. Elisabeth loves those bow-adorned pumps; not my favorite, but she is working the look. While I like Jessica’s dress, silly putty pumps weren’t the best choice.

    • ScarlettHarlot

      Betty and Peggy look great, Jessica’s look reminds me of when Don called Megan “Maria von Trapp,” and…I love Christina Hendrix so much that this hurts. She deserves better than whatever that fabric mess is!

    • Ozski

      Recently on Jimmy Fallon Christina Hendricks mentioned that she likes having “Caftans & Casseroles” parties, where each guest must wear a fabulous caftan. I think she interpreted one of her caftans into a pantsuit, with horrific results. It sure looks comfy, like a caftan. I actually don’t mind the color though. Also, I find this particular wig more offensive than her outfit. She’s been sporting this one a lot on the Red Carpet recently and it looks like it doesn’t fit correctly on her hairline. Love her face, as always. Oh, and January’s bag is giving me LIFE.

      • ktr33

        wig? really? or, like, extensions, falls, etc.?

        • BoxOfficeChica

          Yeah, Chrstina’s natural hair is very thin and she almost always wears hairpieces/wigs/etc. of some sort in public.

    • Christine Hart

      Jessica’s dress makes her look like she’s wearing a backpack.

    • KinoEye

      Lizzy!! This is the best she’s looked in ages. Plus, you can tell she knows she nailed it — so happy and confident. Love it all, save the shoes.

      J. Jones is magnificent. I, too, have a serious case of bitchface. It’s nice to see high-profile actresses like her raise awareness of this debilitating, yet fabulous disease.

      Christina, Christina, Christina. I’m almost on board with the color. But the rest does indeed look like jammies. In fact, it even looks like jammies she wore on Mad Men once.

      Underwhelmed by Miss Jessica. Lipstick seems a little too harsh. Dress is cute, but I’m not sure it’s her dress.

      ETA: Does Zosia Mamet have a doppleganger, or is that her in the back of Christina’s first photo?

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Dear Christina: GTNYC (Girl, that’s not your color). Love how Jones (love the sweater top) and Moss (love the shoes) look. Jessica, your shoes should have picked up the green in the dress.

    • lahallita

      It wouldn’t have saved it, but that fuschia number that Christina is wearing would be taking a step in the right direction with a funky belt.

      • Patrick Cleary

        I was in the middle of typing just that when I saw your note. Exactly. A turquoise belt with a giant buckle, and the outfit might be kind of funky/awesome.

        • lahallita

          Great minds think alike!

    • Danielle

      The color is singing on Christina, but from the front it’s total Blanche Devereaux.

    • Raspberry2012

      Oh, Christina – yikes. Girl, no. Wrong color, needs to be more fitted. It looks like jammies.

      Really liking Jessica’s dress! Hate the Silly Putty shoes, too, but love that dress.

      Not thrilled with January or Elizabeth’s looks in the least. Both very meh.

    • Kim Elmore

      I love Jan Jo’s hair, but who is that cupping Christina’s underboob??

    • Shug

      That magenta is fighting Christina’s hair…so many other colors that could set off her hair beautifully, and she goes with magenta…

    • Denise Alden

      God, I love January Jones! I don’t understand why I love her so much, but I do. And though I love Christina Hendricks even more, I never love how she looks. She’s so stunning! I don’t get this.

    • Alex Palombo

      But..but where’s Kiernan?!

    • suzq

      Poor Christina. Blouses are not her friends. Neither are high waisted pants. Rosalyn Russell had that same body but she always looked perfectly turned out. Why does Christina look so schlumpy? BECAUSE TODAY, OUR CLOTHES ARE MASS PRODUCED! Celebrities come in all shapes and sizes, but they tend to have one thing in common: lots of bank. Take some of that cash and employ a good tailor or two (or three.) Please. You’ll look and feel SO MUCH BETTER.

      I canNOT get past Ms. Jones’ head. Neck up, she looks like the latest kidnapped woman who had just enough time to slap on some lipstick borrowed from a policewoman before running the gauntlet of press leaving the scene of the kidnapper’s capture.

      Purple jumpsuit is too unflattering in the torso to forgive. (STRUCTURE.)

      Were breast exams free at this event?

      Moss is so much prettier in real life! Yay for her looks. I applaud Hendricks for the hot pink pajamas — she was going for elegant and breezy, and she looks comfortable. I hate it when clothes seem to be fighting the wearer. Pare is not as pretty here as on MM (makeup seems a little stark); I like Jones’s fashion forward efforts on the red carpet so much more than her wooden performance on MM.

      Lizzy looks great, but there is something about that single toe poking out of those shoes that is freaking me out.

      JJ’s shoes are paining me more than CH’s jumpsuit. Girl, put on some cute flats instead. Them dogs are barking!

        Yeah, her ankles look fat and her feet look…I dunno…old, somehow. Not too many people look right in those nude shoes. Solange, for instance- on her they look good. Maybe because her toes are long.

      I thought Jessica was wearing a backpack for a second.

      JJo doesn’t have a bitch-face there so much as a stunned and vacant face. But her look is cute. The stringy hair hanging in her face makes her look young, but not really in a good way. The purple bag makes a nice pop of color.
      Lizzy’s skirt is cute but her sweater is Ann Taylor Loft business casual, and her feet look tortured.
      Jessica’s dress has a nice shape and fits her well, but very drab overall.
      and now… Christina. Christina, Christina, Christina. “We can already hear the vociferous debate that’s about to erupt over this one. Some will hate it; some will defend.” Debate? Could there really be a debate? Is there any way to feel about this but sad? It’s like something a female Hugh Hefner would lounge around in, in her 80s! I think it has pleats! And that ditsy little snakeskin crossbody? what?

      Wow. I didn’t know they were making hazmat suits in Radiant Orchid!

    • ktr33

      oh no, oh NO! I just realized you can see the TAG thru her pants (CH) in that last pic! Oh, it just gets sadder…

      January, “do I HAVE to be here? ”

      And what’s with the woman in the background wearing a slip and turquoise shoes?

      Dig, dig, dig, and Lord why did Hendricks wear that? I’m not even as pretty as her and I wouldn’t wear that thing!
