Beautiful Illusions.

As I am looking forward to “Mad Men” season sixth to be released on DVD, I came across this almost archival photo editorial featuring January Jones and Jon Hamm a.k.a. Mrs. and Mr. Draper photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair on the verge of “Mad Men” season three premiere.

Except a great plot and a set of original characters, “Mad Men” is a vintage fashion feast, as all characters are dressed with utmost care and precision up to the tiniest detail. I admired the most costumes worn by Betty Draper in initial seasons – magnificent dresses, A line skirts, jewelry, equestrian outfits as well as stunning evening wear. Mrs. Draper, a model housewife and a hostess, never looked less than perfect, proving that being a home stayed mother is no reason to be anything less than glamorous.
