Christina Hendricks Follows in the Footsteps of Gisele Bundchen
London Fog trench coats used to be the favorites of rich outdoorsy types looking for major protection from a serious downpour. In other words, the classic London Fog rain jacket was short on style and long on function.
Now that Christina Hendricks is the newest celebrity to represent the line, the classic brand with metropolitan appeal is bringing a whole new meaning to outerwear and accessories for the fall.
London Fog is no stranger to the star of Mad Men, as the brand has been used on the AMC show. The curvy actress appreciates the iconic shape of the trench: “It works for anyone – it worked in the 1960s and it works now.”
Mod Collection at QVC & The Shopping Channel
Janie Bryant, the costumer designer for Mad Men, has just made it easier for Joan Holloway and Betty Draper wannabees.
If you love the vintage-inspired style of Mad Men, you can now select pieces from the Mod collection at QVC.
Launched in September, the retro collection includes statement pieces such as faux fur jackets, reversible swing coats, skinny pants, and crystal pendants and pins.
Prices range from around $25 to $140 (US), which probably isn’t much more than the soon to be Mrs. Draper will pay for her twin cashmere sets. Check out photos of the collection at StyleList or a slide show at New York Magazine (gotta love the Retro animal print handbag at $80).

Christina Hendricks, who plays office bombshell Joan Holloway Harris on Mad Men, married Geoffrey Arend in New York this weekend. The couple met earlier this year when they were introduced by Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell on the series.
The bride wore an ivory fils coupe Carolina Herrera gown with a sweetheart neckline. In July, Christina told people.com: “It was the first dress I tried on, and it was magnificent.” Accessories included red satin shoes and gold deco earrings with pearls.
We’re hoping that Christina Hendricks has been busy with her wedding, and that’s the reason why the stylish Joan has not been featured heavily in this season’s episodes of Mad Men. Although it was fun seeing Joan wheel and deal with Pete Campbell as manager of a woman’s department at Bonwit Teller, the best scenario involves Joan returning to work at Sterling Cooper.
Out of Town: Drama and Fashion
The season premiere opens with Don Draper preparing a hot drink for his pregnant wife, Betty. As he works the spoon through the milk, he also stirs up the past with clues to the mysterious night he was born and handed off to another family.
New beginnings highlight this episode. Sterling Cooper is in the midst of restructuring with one third of the office being handed pink slips and current employees vying for promotions. Don and Betty are trying to revive their marriage and prepare for the birth of their child. Salvatore Romano is newly exposed to the distractions of business trips when he jets off to Baltimore with Don.
Fresh starts don’t always bring what you’re hoping for, though, as newly promoted Pete Campbell soon finds out when he realizes he’s splitting ad accounts with co-worker Ken Cosgrove as accounts manager. Meanwhile, Don easily slips back into old philandering ways with a flirtatious stewardess on a flight to Baltimore. Continue reading
