One of my favorite TV shows is Mad Men on AMC for their innovative storylines but mostly for the design of the whole 60's show from set decor to of course, the costumes. My friend Dolin in her recent post on her blog, Lulu Bliss points to an interview with the costume designer Janie Bryant on the Glamour blog. On the AMC site, the show has a Fashion File blog where Janie gives you a video or slideshow scoop on the thoughts for each episode and outfit.
My favorites are the costumes of housewife/ex-model Betty Draper from this stunning turquoise gown to her riding gear and poofy dresses. I love how her character is defined even more through her clothes.
Second runner up is executive secretary Joan. I want that pen necklace she always wears and her pencil skirts always show off her perfect curves.
