Jessica Pare In Jason Wu – 2013 Met Gala

Jessica Pare in Jason Wu - 2013 Met Gala

‘Mad Men’ star Jessica Pare struck a fierce pose in Jason Wu at the Met Gala tonight.

The structural hybrid top and gown is a departure from what Jason Wu is known for, and Jessica wears is well.

I really think Jessica has nailed this look from top to bottom. The look was styled perfectly on the runway, and the actress mimics that even down to the perfect strappy sandals, which accent the look perfectly.

Her sleek, center-parted updo continues in the modern feel of the gown, and her dramatic blue eyeshadow is navy enough that it isn’t painfully matchy-matchy with the color of the gown.

Major bravo for Jessica!

Jessica Pare In L’Wren Scott – People/Time Party

Jessica Pare In L'Wren Scott - People Time Party

Jessica Pare attended the PEOPLE/TIME Party on the eve of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Friday evening in Washington, DC.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a dress from her favourite designer of the moment, L’Wren Scott.

Her black dress with gold lattice detailing was from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

I don’t know if it’s the pose, the styling or the dress, but nothing is working for me here.

For someone who creates such form-fitting frocks, this L’Wren Scott look makes Jessica look very boxy.

To make matters worse, her makeup looks very ghostly.

She can do better; her Antonio Berardi gown at the main event proves that.

Jessica Pare In Antonio Berardi – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Jessica Pare In Antonio Berardi - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

Jessica Paré relied on good old-Hollywood glamour to carry her through last night’s 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress was a classic beauty in this architectural Antonio Berardi midnight-blue dress, which was slashed through with curve-enhancing dark panels.

Accessories were kept to a sophisticated minimum with a small Roger Vivier clutch and Nam Cho jewels in complementary shades of blue.

Her side-swept updo was perfect for this asymmetric exaggerated-shoulder gown—and for showing off that stunning pair of earrings.

Don Draper would certainly approve.

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.
