Mad Men Spotlight: Betty Draper

Like many of you, I'm anxiously awaiting the season premiere of Mad Men on August 16. Leading up to the premiere, I will be featuring the women of Mad Men. Whether you're a Betty, a Joan, or a Peggy, or if you just have an appreciation for mid-century fashion and design, join me in the countdown to the season premiere of best drama series on television. Some of my favorite Betty looks:
Great glamorous look (above), via instyle.com. Perfect makeup (below) via blogs.amctv.com.
I really wish I had the arse to wear riding pants. I love this classic look. Via madmen.wordpress.com.
Perfect polka-dot party dress via blogs.amctv.com.
The cutest day dress via courant.com.
Check out the Betty Crocker Hostess Cookbook. My dream job: to be a set designer for Mad Men. Via courant.com
Somber Betty, via blogs.amctv.com.
Another lovely day dress, via rdjour.com. Love Betty's hair here.
Elegant in evening wear, via thelavenderlily.blogspot.com.

Stay tuned for Peggy and Joan features later this week!

I am the only person on this planet that has not seen MM! I would likely have an asthma attack over the fashions & sets; so as soon as I set myself up with an inhaler or O2, I'm sitting down & taking it all in. Can't wait to see more. Your blog is always the best! Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments today. I admire you & your husband and you have such an honorable attitude. We would love to be doing what you both do by renovating & restoring homes. These bad times too shall pass & then we can breathing a lot easier. All the best to you both ~ Deb

I have a few minutes to check in, should be back to blogging by Saturday.:)

I am so out of the loop, I haven't even heard of this show. I do not watch much tv at all, other than news. Going to have to try and catch this one. Absolutely love her look!!! Wouldn't you just love to have those dresses? I sure would.:)

Have a wonderful week, sweetie.

Wow, great pic picks. I've heard raves about Mad Men, but have yet to watch it. Hope you have a splendiferous week!

This is so funny, to read the comments here! All my Flickr friends are so into MM, and have done the "Mad Men Yourself" icons (me too). I think the show is so great that you can enjoy it even if you aren't into the mid-century aesthetic. But if you are....it's hard to pay attention to the dialogue sometimes because of all the eye candy! Love Betty's looks! But I really dream of looking like Joan....sigh.

I can't wait! Love Mad Men and AMC had a marathon on yesterday.

Betty is beautiful. The hair, makeup and clothes is great.

Isn't she just the cutest. I hope this year she gets the one up on that cad of a husband (who in real life is from my home town of St. Louis).

Yes, you must go to www.madmenyourself.com ...and insert yourself into a scene from the show. Too fun.
