Betty Draper

Okay, you guys know how much I love the show Mad Men. The name sounds weird- Mad Men? It is about the advertising men who worked on Madison Avenue in New York in the early 1960's and it is just superb in it's detailed sets, costuming and clever writing! It has won several awards, blah blah blah. Great show. Now on to one of my favorite things on the show: Betty Draper, wife of ad man Don Draper. She is always head to toe fabulous- you guys should watch it just for her outfits and hair styles! They are to die for. Let's take a look at a few pics:

Okay, this wave in her hair? So glamorous!

This is my favorite hairstyle, with the headband. I want to bring this picture into someone who does/cuts hair and have them do mine the same way. I would most definitely rock a headband as well.

This is when Betty goes to her riding lessons! CHIC.

This is when the Drapers went to Rome or Paris- forgot where, but it was in Europe. I think it was Rome. Anyway, Betty had hair/make up that was the opposite of how she usually looks and I thought it was quite fierce.

But Don still cheats on her, regardless of how great she looks! Which goes to show, you don't have to try and be perfect- if a guy wants to cheat, he will and if he doesn't, he won't. Doesn't matter what you look like or don't look like.

Back to the pics. Here is Betty with her wine...

and window shopping...

She doesn't smile often. In this scene she was smiling because one of Don's clients was hitting on her. The new season starts July 25th- check it out, even if it is just to see Betty's hair styles and gowns!

Here are some clips of the show:
