Over the years, we’ve liked the way Peggy Olson’s style has progressed. Until now. Here is an image of her from the upcoming season, and it’s even more disappointing than the season’s teaser poster. Um, who attacked the girl with hairspray? And why so drab? Homegirl does not look good, which is a shame because actress Elisabeth Moss is so adorable. I guess this was the style back then?

“A lot of older fans come up to me and say, ‘I was Peggy’ or ‘my mother was Peggy’. It makes you incredibly grateful for what they put up with. That kind of movement, that bravery, had obviously existed long before the ’60s. It’s hard to imagine how they did it, in a way. I have such admiration for these incredible women. And I don’t think they ever decided, ‘I’m going to break through the glass ceiling.’ The glass ceiling wasn’t invented until later. Peggy just wants to be recognized for who she is. She doesn’t want to be recognized as ‘I am woman, hear me roar.’ She just has good ideas and thinks, ‘Why can’t you listen to my ideas too?’”
“Mad Men” takes care of their own. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Elisabeth Moss will be entered as a “best supporting actress” nominee for the Emmys so that January Jones can be nominated in the “best lead actress” category all by her lonesome. Sources tell THR that a “best lead actress” Emmy has eluded Jones twice before and since the Emmys allows candidates to submit for their own categories, the folks behind “Mad Men” want to give Jones her best chance. Bummer for Elisabeth Moss, though! She might be a frontrunner for the Emmys’ “best supporting actress” category, but still, this is how catfights get started.
The first time Jon Hamm hosted “Saturday Night Life,” cast member Fred Armisen met his future wife, Elisabeth Moss, during a “Mad Men” skit. Who will Jon Hamm’s Patented Lurve-Making Magic work on this Saturday? (Also, do you think getting rid of that awful Grizzly Man beard was a pre-condition of Jon’s hosting?) [NBC] Keep reading »
Doesn’t it seem like Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss were playing their “Mad Men” characters with their recent nuptials? When Christina, aka Joan, got married in July, she talked extensively to InStyle Wedding beforehand, telling them all about her dress and how fiancé Geoffrey Arend proposed under a chandelier. After the wedding, she released lavish photos to People. Meanwhile, Elisabeth, aka Peggy, was mums the word about her wedding to Fred Armisen of “Saturday Night Live.” But surprise! They got hitched over the weekend in a simple wedding held in Long Island City, New York. Even though Moss appeared on “The View” on Friday, she played ultra-coy about her big day. When Barbara Walters asked her about the wedding date, Elisabeth said, “I can’t tell you that,” even though a more spotlight-loving celeb would’ve barked, “In 48 hours!” In fact, Moss didn’t make any kind of announcement about the wedding at all—Whoopi Goldberg, a friend of Moss’ after they worked on “Girl, Interrupted” together, broke the news as a follow-up on yesterday’s episode of “The View.” Keep reading »

““I love playing Peggy [Olson]. Finding the balance between playing her, finding new things, and not losing her, and constantly finding enough new stuff to keep her remaining herself … Playing her is an exercise in remaining simple, despite the fact that she is becoming more complicated. [She's] not out to hurt anyone, she’s just trying to figure out who she is. But it still is agenda-free. She is looking for her place in the world.”
Peggy Olson has really stepped up her look on the current season of “Mad Men,” but she still isn’t quite as lovely as Elisabeth Moss is when she’s out of character. The actress looked quite nice on the red carpet last night with her simple makeup that eschewed the Hollywood trend to heap on the bronzer. Find out how to get her look after the jump! Keep reading »
