The Paley Center For Media Presents: ‘Mad Men’ Season 5

The Paley Center For Media Presents 'Mad Men' Season 5

The ladies from ‘Mad Men’ were back on the red carpet again last night for The Paley Center for Media’s presentation of ‘Mad Men’ Season 5, held at The Paley Center for Media in New York City yesterday evening, with two of the three making an effort to get dressed up for the occasion.

Jessica Pare: As with the last event, the Canadian actress stood out wearing another fitted dress, this time selecting a Roksanda Ilincic ‘Efra’ dress from the Spring 2013 collection with striking colour panelling, which she styled with Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ pumps.

Kiernan Shipka: Opting for another dark-coloured frock, the young actress chose a fit-and-flare black dress with rich red floral embroidery. Satin pumps and a braided ‘do completed her look. Beautiful, elegant and age appropriate as always.

January Jones: Opting for a more laidback look, the actress wore a Textile by Elizabeth and James denim jacket over an embroidered Zara cream blouse, paired with Helmut Lang leather pants and Christian Louboutin ‘Diptic’ open-toe ankle boots which we’ve seen before on Jennifer Hudson and Eva Longoria. Do you think she is under dressed or that the others are over dressed?

BAFTA New York Celebrates ‘Mad Men’

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.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

January Jones In Jonathan Saunders – ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Premiere

January Jones In Jonathan Saunders SS13 - 'Mad Men' Season 6 Premiere

January Jones attended AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 premiere held at DGA Theater Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

The blonde actress wore a Jonathan Saunders Spring 2013 dress.

Her blue-white-and-ivory crepe-silk-and-chiffon dress feels fresh and effortless.

This is not a big budget movie premiere, so pulling things back and keeping things simple was probably the right approach; however, this does feel like a photocall look or garden party look.

January’s makeup was also kept simple and light as her skin was naturally radiant, with a glossy pink lip colour accenting the gorgeous smile.

Silver Christian Louboutin sandals completed her look.

Do you love this laidback approach or do you wish she’d made more of an effort?

‘Mad Men’ airs on AMC in the US on Sunday, April 7th, and Wednesday, April 10th on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Fall 2013

Miu Miu Front Row

The Miu Miu Fall 2013 presentation took place in Paris, France yesterday and the brand invited some familiar faces to view the show – none of whom we would immediately associate with the brand, so what better way to make an introduction.

Renee Zellweger: Known for her love of all things Carolina Herrera, the actress donned a Prada black lace shirt dress for the occasion. Looking a lot fresher than she did at the 2013 Oscars, the actress styled her look with all-black Prada accessories.

Zoe Saldana: Wearing Miu Miu head to toe, her look perfectly represents her effortless, laidback style. Working a luxe camel wool coat, the rest of her look features a navy long-sleeved top and high-waisted ankle-zip leather pants, which she accessorized with black Craquelé leather pumps and a Cipria patent matelassé clutch. Save for the out-of-place clutch, this was my favourite look.

January Jones: While I do love this playful head-to-toe Miu Miu look from January, I do get the feeling that she just stepped off the ‘Mad Men’ set with this 60s-inspired look. Maybe that relates more to the hair than the clothes.

Lea Seydoux: The French actress wore an all-Prada look. The look is instantly recognisable by her black Prada coat with floral appliqués. The pretty look, which featured a pink dress with a white collar and black pumps with a pink bow, was styled with an edgy white clutch with silver studs.

January Jones In Chanel – 2013 Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner

chanel-january-jones

January Jones joined Kate Bosworth to show her designer love at the Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The ‘Mad Men’ star wore a black viscose sweater compliments of the Chanel Resort 2013 collection and pants from Chanel Fall 2012.

The mini-turtleneck style sweater featured textured detailing on the front panel and exposed just a sliver of January’s skin for a playful look. The black and white pants were a graphic take on the classic tuxedo pant, and I’m glad that she went without the matching coat shown on the runway.

January is a past fan of the black and white trend, and really, the whole look seems to be a style her ‘Mad Men’ character Betty Draper would wear. She styled the pants-and-top look with Chanel shoes, a clutch, and a statement ‘Eventail’ black and white diamond cuff.

A neutral makeup palette and a volume-injected bob completed the look.
