For the last seven years, the world has been obsessed with a little period drama called Mad Men . And for good reason: It’s got scandal, intrigue, sexy men, gorgeous women, nods to historical events, an inside look at the world of old-school advertising, and plot lines that have fans and TV critics alike forming some of the most insane theories in the world of television. (Seriously, the sheer number of wild speculations about minor character Bob Benson is proof of that last point in and of itself). But let’s just go ahead and admit it: Half of the reason we continue to watch Mad Men season after season is to obsess over the characters’ truly amazing ’60s- and ’70s-era wardrobes, right?
But the stars of Mad Men don’t limit their envious style to the small screen; they know how to show off their fabulous fashion on the red carpet, too. And that’s just what they did Wednesday night at the Hollywood premiere of the seventh and final season of the hit AMC series, with stars like Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Jessica Paré, and more walking the red carpet in some seriously gorgeous ensembles that rival even the best on-screen fashion moments.
Moss made her mark on the night in a super-sexy, head-to-toe black ensemble from Alexander McQueen. With its structured shoulders, slim-fitting silhouette, leather skirt, and daring slit, the outfit — which she completed with black accessories, a wavy bob, and a smoky eye — gave Moss the edge we’ve really come to appreciate from her recent fashion choices.
Jones showed up in a surprising — but fantastic, nonetheless — number from designer Roksanda Ilincic, opting for a look that was a bit bolder than her typical sexy ensembles. Channeling a warrior vibe, the actress paired her color-blocked, peplum-paneled dress with a major gold belt, simple ankle-strap heels, and one of the most gorgeous casual braids we’ve ever seen on the red carpet.
Pare opted for a more tailored, structured look, donning a one-shouldered, shimmering dress from Antonio Berardi. From the strapless bustier and slicked-back ponytail to the sexy slit and zipper detailing, the Canadian actress’s outfit was a fun, fierce look that really paid off.
Though we often find ourselves sighing in frustration over Christina Hendricks’s inability to properly play up her perfect figure off screen, the bombshell actress definitely nailed it on last night’s red carpet, taking a note from her Mad Men character’s playbook with a sexy Wes Gordon pencil skirt and simple black blouse.
And then there’s little Sally Draper. As if she ever looks anything less than gorgeous and glamorous on the red carpet, Kiernan Shipka pulled out all the stops in her stunning, floral jacquard Nina Ricci dress. With its structured fit, pretty pattern, and bubble skirt, the look was a beyond-amazing match for the fashionable young actress.
Though he may not be wearing a dazzling dress or awe-inspiring ensemble, what kind of monsters would we be if we didn't leave you with a little Jon Hamm action?
