BAFTA New York Celebrates ‘Mad Men

BAFTA New York celebrated the leading lovelies, (and the dapper guys, too), of AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ on Monday at The Harvard Club in New York City. I wanted to be ‘mad’ about the ladies’ looks, but I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed by a few of them.

Jessica Paré:  The Canadian stunner wore a jade-green dress, gilded in gold bric-a-brac at the neck and sleeves, from L’Wren Scott’s Fall 2013 collection. The slimline dress showed off her figure, but I couldn’t take my eyes off the distracting black Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps. They weren’t right for this look, as I much preferred the metallic gold shoes that took to the runway.

January Jones: With her black leather Versace motorcycle jacket and printed Parker mini-skirt, the actress mixed punk and playful styles. Black Miu Miu platform pumps and a tousled bob finished this sporty moment that was certainly worlds away from her classic-glam ‘Mad Men’ character.

Christina Hendricks: The flame-haired star covered up her curves in a long-sleeve, knee-length black Valentino dress. While it did have some silhouette-enhancing trim at the waist and bodice, these details all but disappeared into the blackness. The spark was further extinguished with tired Stuart Weitzman black shoes—a more inspired pair would have worked wonders. At least Christina’s bold red lip provided some much-needed drama.

Kiernan Shipka: The young starlet stood out here with her adorable Dolce & Gabbana bow-accented frock that managed to look simultaneously sophisticated and age-appropriate. She also gets points for her retro side-swept wave and her decision to opt out of black pumps, choosing instead a mesh pair.

Christina Hendricks In L'Wren Scott - ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Premiere

Christina Hendricks joined co-star January Jones on the red carpet at the DGA Theater in California last night for the ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 premiere.

As always, I fought with every fibre of my being to love her look, but it just didn’t happen.

She wore a black velvet L’Wren Scott Fall 2012 dress, which isn’t a bad dress, but even without comparing her to January Jones’ summery look, this dress just feels so heavy for her.

I wish this dress had been in a lighter fabric as it does do a great job of containing the twins and flattering her curves.

Red velvet Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, a long beaded necklace and a L.K.Bennett black satin ‘Amelia’ clutch completed her look.

Thumbs up or thumbs down for this look?

2013 AFI Awards

Here are the rest of the attendees who took to the red carpet on Friday afternoon at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California for the 2013 AFI Awards.

Kiernan Shipka: Why Elle Fanning won Best Dressed Teen 2012 over Kiernan I will never quite understand, as the ‘Mad Man’ actress’ style prowess and infinitely better shoe closet leaves Fanning in the shade for me. On this occasion she wore an uber cute yellow Valentino frock with satin black trims paired with simple black Rupert Sanderson ankle-strap sandals. Light makeup and a simple bun complete her fresh, youthful look.

Lena Dunham: There was much debate over Lena’s previous look with some saying that she’s “just-not-that-into-fashion” and others arguing that she needs to play that game. Well it looked like she upped her game at this event wearing a figure flattering Zac Posen grape cape-sleeve dress with a flared skirt. Silver glitter Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats and a berry lip colour to complement her dress completed her look.

Sally Field: The actress selected a grey-and-white Stella McCartney short sleeve dress with a white lace overlay which we’ve also seen on Michelle Dockery. Grey pearls and grey pumps perfect her day time chic look.

Christina Hendricks joined her ‘Mad Men’ co-star January Jones on the red carpet for the 41st Annual Peace Over Violence Humanitarian Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA on Friday evening.

She showcased her fabulous curves wearing a L’Wren Scott dress.

We have found Christina frustratingly inconsistent on the red carpet at times, but the green crepe dress with a modest v-neck, belted waist and slight flare in the skirt is very flattering.

Gold metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ pumps, dangling earrings and a black-and-gold Jimmy Choo ‘Lina’ clutch accessorized her look.

Do you see this look as an improvement, or more of the same?

You can buy Christina’s L’Wren Scott dress in black from Matches Fashion US and Matches Fashion International.
