There was something notable to mention on Mad Men last Sunday. (There always is, and Roger’s LSD trip was the funniest scene I’ve watched on the show, except when Ken ran over the guy with a lawnmower).
REGARDLESS, it was Jane’s kimono. She wears this when she tells Roger their marriage is over, and I loved everything about it. The deep v-neck, the slit up to there, the green blue color…it was the best outfit of the show, in my humble opinion.
This was the best picture I could find, but it looked best when her and Roger were talking in bed the next morning.
The best outfit of Mad Men has easily been Megan’s dress during Zou Bisou Bisou. Janie Bryant, the show’s costume designer, said of the dress,
“It was all about the sleeves,” she says. “I knew she would be singing a song and I knew that she would dance and I talked with Matt [Weiner] about how it would be choreographed. So it was about the arms and also the legs, because this was when the miniskirts were invented. Actually, I just read that Courreges invented them and it was Mary Quant who made them popular. There is always that battle going on between designers.”
