What Would Mad Men’s Joan Holloway Do?

Now you can take more than style tips — kudos to the genius person who set up the blog “What Would Joan Holloway Do?”, answering oh-so-cerebral reader questions from the redhead’s fictional perspective. Our favorite so far:

How do you deal with a hysterical co-worker? There’s one woman in my office that is always running off to the powder room to sob. I don’t know her, so I feel strange asking her what’s wrong.

You do nothing, sister. Keep your trap shut and your eyes open. The last thing you need to do is show the office that you’re best pals with the tearful girl who can’t keep a secret.

Hollywood Stars’ Secret Porn Pasts

In the September issue of Best Life, “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, who plays ad exec Don Draper on the show, reveals that before he hit it big in Hollywood, he worked as a set dresser on soft-core porn movies. “It seemed like a wonderful way to spend 12 hours a day, five days a week for $150 a day … nonunion, no benefits. … Hollywood, baby!” he recalls. Nowadays, Hamm’s not alone. More than a few Hollywood players got their start working in the X-rated industry–and they aren’t ashamed to admit it. After the jump, find out who made their mark in Porn Valley. Keep reading »

Stylehiving: Get Joan Holloway’s Mad Men Style

As if I haven’t said it enough, I heart Mad Men and am on the edge of my seat for this Sunday’s season two premiere. I especially love foxy redheaded Queen Bee of the secretaries, Joan Holloway. Her approach to getting ahead at work may not be ours (but then again, we don’t have to contend with 1960′s sexism!), but her style is hot. Embracing her womanly curves, the character always looks chic and well put together, and getting the look yourself, while staying modern, is actually pretty easy. Check out three options we put together, based on Joan’s fashion from last season, after the jump. Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: The Women Of Mad Men

Mad Men is back on Sunday! It’s one of the few TV shows of true quality that I watch (though, crap, I really hope it’s time slot doesn’t conflict with Big Brother…). Anyway, while Jon Hamm does a mean job playing sexy ad exec Don Draper, the true stars of the show in our eyes (but clearly not the stinkin’ decision makers behind the Emmy nominations) are the female characters portrayed by Elizabeth Moss, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks. It seems kind of ironic that a show which portrays the sexist working conditions in corporate America in the 1960′s was honored only for its male cast members, but we digress. These women are hot not just in looks, but in talent. We can’t wait to see what havoc Betty Draper, Peggy Olson, and Joan Holloway will cause those boys in Season Two. [AMCTV.com] Keep reading »

Emmy Nominations: Where Are The Mad Women?

The Emmy nominations were announced this morning and it was exciting to see so many of our favorites on the list — 30 Rock, Mad Men, and even Amy Poehler nominated for her work on Saturday Night Live. But why oh why were the ladies from Mad Man dissed by the Academy? We were soooo hoping to see either January Jones (Betty Draper) or Elisabeth Moss (Peggy) recognized for their talents too, but old standbys like Sandra Oh from Grey’s Anatomy and Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit got the nod instead. Snore! [Emmys.tv] Keep reading »

    The Daily Hotness: Jon Hamm

    Jon Hamm plays Don Draper on Mad Men, you know, that show I am totally obsessed with right now. Don is mysterious and complex and seriously sexy, even when he is being a total a-hole to his wife. Relative to the other d-bags he works with at the Sterling-Cooper ad agency, he treats his secretary Peggy with respect. And Hamm plays him to perfection. Seriously, sometimes I catch myself licking my lips while watching the show. It is embarrassing. Anyway, Hamm has been in a relationship with Jennifer Westfeldt, from Kissing Jessica Stein, for, like ever, which makes him 10,000 times cooler in our book. Keep reading »

    Mad Men: “1960, I Am So Over You”

    Currently, I am majorly obsessed with the show Mad Men on AMC. If you haven’t seen it, you must give it a go, before the second season starts in a month. The show is about the advertising men on Madison Avenue during the early 1960s and is just brilliantly written and art directed. One of the most fascinating aspects to the show is seeing what it was like for the working women who were secretaries at the agencies — Mad Men features some of the most interesting female characters I’ve seen on TV in awhile, including Joan, the head secretary at Sterling-Cooper, the show’s fictional ad agency. Her portrayer, Christina Hendricks, is a goddess, and does a remarkable job showing the the complexity of a character who tries to maintain power in the workplace using her sexuality. In this clip, Joan’s roommate tries to tell her she’s hot for her. Keep reading »
