“I’m not Tom Ford in terms of the grooming and the knowledge of clothes and the precision and perfection of getting dressed. There’s nothing I can wear in this ad that isn’t going to look ridiculous.

Have you been wishing you could look like lovely Betty Draper, or siren Joan Holloway, or any of the other sexy, stylish characters on “Mad Men”?
