Mad Men Fashion File


Last night's episode of Mad Men, although a sobering one with the Kennedy assassination and the implosion of the Draper's marriage, was nevertheless visually stunning. Betty Draper's ensemble at the wedding of Margaret Sterling was wonderful-an ice blue brocade suit with white mink collar. I hope you caught the matching white mink capelet and ice blue shoes and handbag as well. And speaking of stunning, I adored Margaret Sterling's wedding gown and especially her headpiece of feathers, pearls, and silk illusion. These would be perfect ideas to borrow for a fall or winter wedding. Betty's outfit would be ideal for the mother of the bride. Margaret's headpiece was so elegant-straight out of Swan Lake. Don't forget your pearl necklace and pearl drop earrings!
