Christina Hendricks honors L’Wren Scott in a Fall 2012 look at Paleyfest: lovely?


Here are some photos from the Paleyfest panel/media presser for Mad Men Season 7. Shockingly, January Jones was not in attendance, but Jessica Pare was. WTF? Is Season 7 going to feature Megan Draper but no Betty?! Anyway, there was some interesting fashion notes from the panel. Christina Hendricks wore a tribute to the late L’Wren Scott – this dress is a L’Wren dress from the Fall 2012 collection. As you can see… L’Wren did not really make clothes that look great on really voluptuous women. Most designers do not, so on that, L’Wren was not alone. I appreciate what Christina was trying to do though, and I think this is a lovely tribute to L’Wren’s memory.

But… the dress has a weird effect, right? Christina is so top-heavy, and this minimizes her bust, but at the expense of the rest of her body. Also, I think Christina is debuting a new hairstyle? This looks different to me, and I don’t really care for it.

Also at the event: Jon Hamm, who seemed to be wearing underwear (boo) but there’s still a noticeable bulge. Jessica Pare wore Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2014, and I hate to admit it, but I love this and it looks great on her. Elisabeth Moss wore Emilio Pucci and Kiernan Shipka wore Dolce & Gabbana. Kiernan has THE BEST style of all of the pre-teen and teen actors in Hollywood. She so lovely. Moss is cute too, but I don’t love the dress.

As for the news that came out of Paleyfest… nothing much. All of the actors were tight-lipped about Season 7 and we really have no idea what’s going to happen. I feel weird about wishing death on fictional characters, but I hope Don Draper is dead and buried by the end of Season 7. I hope Pete Campbell gets knocked around a bit but he eventually finds his footing too. And I hope Peggy, Sally, Roger and Joan survive and thrive. That’s all.

    Love Kiernan’s dress.
    I too think Don needs to die at the end, it feels like that’s what they’ve been building towards.

    I actually like Christina’s dress on her. I hate the way she usually has her breasts pushed up so high she could rest her chin on them. Her hair look odd though, sort of like mine does when I’ve been gardening in the rain.

    I don’t want to hear one more complaint from JH about people talking about his bulge. He might as well have arrows pointing to it. And thanks, John, btw.

    I like this color on her. I also think the embroidery is quite striking.

  4. Lisa says:

    As usual, Kiernan is the best dressed.

  5. Stoner says:

    The problem with Christina’s dress is the length and where it hits on her leg. If it hit at just above the knee instead of cutting her calf in half, it would be quite lovely on her.

  6. sam says:

    Honest question – is Jessica Pare pregnant? She looks gorgeous. Actually I think they all look great!

  7. maynot says:

    I agree L’Wren was great for her own body type: extremely tall and slender. Nicole Kidman and few others. I did like her style, though. I really did.

  8. Kali says:

    Is it wrong to covet a teenagers wardrobe? Kiernan Shipka usually puts all of her co-stars to shame in the red carpet.

    If I had my way I would so pair up Don and Peggy together. He of course would need to shape up and fix himself and exorcise his alcoholism and his demons from his life. And Peggy? I feel she’s always loved him. She knows him. She really gets him. I think it might work.

    That being said, I think he’s going to die. And I really can’t stand Megan. I keep hoping she’ll meet her maker.

    Hamm looks like he borrowed his jacket from his 15yr old nephew.

  11. Paige says:

    Christina = grandma
    She is not wearing the wig she has been wearing lately. Looks like she is losing hair?

  12. Joanie says:

    I was at the event, and Christina looked absolutely stunning in person. As so often happens, the dress isn’t translating in photos as well as it did in real life.

  13. taxi says:

    That color is terrific on Christina but the rest of it is unflattering. Bad hair too.
    Hamm is a mesomorph & doesn’t look good in the slim Italian cut jacket. It’s too short as well.
    Moss’s dress isn’t bad compared to her usual absence of style but her shoes don’t fit.

  14. TheCountess says:

    January Jones is definitely a part of Season Seven, she was featured in the promo photos.

    That was nice of Christina to do, though I’m not crazy about the dress on her. Still, a sweet nod to L’Wren.

    For the last time, Don Draper will *not* die at the end of the series. The opening credits are a metaphor, not a narrative road map.

  15. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Sorry I am having trouble tearing my eyes away from Hamm’s mesmerizing three piece suit, the pattern is hypnotic…and the Hammdong is contained! As much as it can be anyway, it still draws the eye, esp. with the short jacket, taunting the eye…

    Phew anyhoo. I wish I could say I loved the dress on Christina but I don’t. It’s kind of frumpsville, which is hard to accomplish on her body. The colour is lovely though, and I like her bag/shoe combo. I love Jessica Pare’s, I don’t know why. It’s giving her a little poochy tummy but that orange flare on the ruffle is so jaunty, and the slightly paler orange belt sets it off. I just like it. Adore Elizabeth but her hair is a hot mess and her dress would look better a few inches longer. Short shifts can make you look stumpy imo. Whereas Kiernan’s shift has a cute empire cute and vintage look print, tres adorable.

    I won’t read any prior comments as don’t want spoilers, still have to watch season 6 eek!
