The Emmy Awards are on tomorrow, and Hollywood is already getting a head start on the TV-centric bash with glamorous pre-parties. Mad Men stars Elisabeth Moss, Jessica Paré, and Harry Hamlin joined up with Modern Family's Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, and Sarah Hyland for Variety's Women in Film celebration in Hollywood last night. The fete was chock-full of nominees including Nashville's Connie Britton, Glee's Jane Lynch, and Dot-Marie Jones, and US So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley. While the stars were happy to mingle last night, they may be feeling a bit more competitive tomorrow when the Emmy Awards are underway. Be sure to come back here tomorrow for all the action as it happens!
This morning, we were all crying into our coffees over last night's TV death of Patrick from Offspring — how could you not feel the pain of his leading lady Nina (played by Asher Keddie)? We've loved Nina from day one of the Aussie drama, for her neuroses, down-to-earth attitude and, not least of all, her casual approach to beauty. A slick of gloss, some mascara and a ponytail? That's our girl, and we wouldn't have her any other way! Click through to see some of our favourite female characters of all time, and the hair and makeup looks that made them instantly recognisable.
Another fantastic season of Mad Men concluded this week, and the show's sixth season certainly does not disappoint. Between the illicit relationships, the clandestine kisses, the shooting and the stabbings (yes, multiple stabbings), Don and co. never fail to shock. It was hard, but we've narrowed down the moments that made our eyebrows raise the highest, the times we screamed at the TV, and the parts that made us cringe. Click through to see the most jaw-dropping moments of season six!
With their flawless makeup and perfectly set hairstyles, the ladies of Mad Men never fail to impress (even though everything might not be quite as pristine in their personal lives). Drama aside, each week, fans of the show delight in glimpsing back into the lives of '60s-era movers and shakers.
And just as costume designers help bring a script alive by outfitting stars with fashions to suit their characters' personalities and circumstances, hairstylists and makeup artists are tasked with creating specific looks to reflect a mood. Season six of Mad Men wraps up tonight, so we're taking a look back at the fabulous bouffants and magnificent makeup of the mid-century beauties on the series. From Peggy's big chop to Joan's signature up 'dos, see the style evolutions of the ladies of Mad Men.
Mad Men airs tonight at 5:15 pm on Showcase
Mad Men is back, which means we'll be spending a lot of nights envying the winged liner and nude lips on January Jones and Jessica Paré . . . and then practising both looks on ourselves. The mod beauty in the series makes a gorgeous girls' night out look. So grab some gel liner and a creamy concealer, and learn how to pull this one off when you watch now. On Kirbie: Club Monaco top.
Why does it feel like years since we've seen the Mad Men cast? Don, Peggy, Joan and the whole crew are coming back on April 8 on Showcase, but before they do, make sure you're fully up to speed on where everyone left off. After all, last season produced quite a bit of upheaval. Some characters are no longer with Sterling Cooper Draper, and others are no longer with us on earth — notice the absence of "Pryce." Without further ado, previously on Mad Men . . .
Mad Men's cast of leading ladies hit their season six premiere in LA — and safely covered a number of new season dress trends with their respective event looks. It's not the stuff you'll see Betty, Peggy, or Megan sporting on screen. January Jones brought a colour-blocked pastel blue Jonathan Suanders Spring '13 dress and metallic Louboutin heels to the red carpet. Elisabeth Moss sported a peplum-trimmed LBD by McQ Alexander McQueen — and a Lucite Charlotte Olympia clutch in hand — and Jessica Paré brought a gorgeous wash of colour and print on a Prabal Gurung sheath dress. For a look at all the arrivals, like Christina Hendricks in a curve-hugging L'Wren Scott A/W '12 number, keep clicking — then tell us which look gets your vote for best dressed.
Last night, the stars of Mad Men previewed the first episode of the upcoming sixth season for a VIP crowd at the Directors Guild of America's LA theatre. Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss were among the cast members who turned up for the premiere, but there was more than just a new season to celebrate. Their co-stars Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel, who had an arc on the show last season, just announced they are engaged! When we caught up with Jon last evening, he told us most of the cast has known about the happy news for a while and are all glad to be able to celebrate it publicly now. Jon attended the premiere with his long-time love, Jennifer Westfeldt, and Christina was joined by her husband, Geoffrey Arend, but Vincent appeared to arrive solo to the screening.
The Mad Men cast and the show's creator, Matthew Weiner, are notoriously tight-lipped about the plot. Still, they assured us that this season of Mad Men, which premieres on April 8, is worth tuning in for. Matthew spoke to us about Jon reprising his role as a director in 2013, Jon told us how portraying Don Draper has changed his life, and Elisabeth Moss talked about what it was like to transition from her 20s to her 30s on screen.
The female characters of Mad Men all have covetable beauty looks on the show, but the ladies who play them are head-turners, too. From smoky eyes and textured waves to a swept-up ponytail from the youngest lady of the bunch, the beauty looks at the show's season premiere were as varied as the women themselves.
