The Soapbox: The Three Dimensional Feminism Of Sally Draper

A lot has happened since 2010 when we got to witness Sally Draper’s temper tantrum as a little girl, and feminist blogger Amanda Marcotte made the astute observation that Sally Draper was a feminist hero. That tantrum was our first glimpse into what would later become Sally’s numerous instances of resistance against a broken old…

I Die For Kiernan Shipka’s Closet

Oh, let me count all the ways I hate Kiernan Shipka. (And by hate I mean love.) She has a sense of humor. She’s got badass Chanel shoes. She wears capes. Her hair braid is freaking adorable. She makes her own clothes. She loves Helena Bonham Carter’s style. And she got to keep the wardrobe…

Kiernan Shipka Of “Mad Men” Analyzes Other Child Stars

It’s about 10 years too late to help Shia LaBeouf. But maybe Kiernan Shipka can still do some good in the wild and crazy world of child stars. She has certainly spent long enough in the child psychologist’s office on “Mad Men.” Most of the sessions in this Funny Or Die video are pretty cool,…

Sally Draper Would Like To Punch Betty In The Face, Too

Preternaturally intelligent Kiernan Shipka, who plays Sally Draper on our fave show ever, “Mad Men,” was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly about the show and her role on it.

Quotable: Sally Draper Not Allowed To Watch “Mad Men”

“I’m not allowed to watch the show. My mom will tape it and then show me the scenes she feels are appropriate. […] I’m very method when I’m on set. It’s just kind of thinking the thoughts of Sally, and I pretty much just become her. It’s a character that I’ve known for a really…

Sally Draper Is Really Smart And Plays Golf

Kiernan Shipka, aka Sally Draper of “Mad Men,” is apparently really, really well spoken for a 10-year-old girl. When asked whether she would act like Sally if her parents were like Betty and Don, she said:
“I think Sally’s actually much better than I would be, given her situation. Sally is really, really reserved. Divorce…

This “Save Sally” T-Shirt Doesn’t Exist — Yet

Oof, last night’s episode of “Mad Men” was a bit of a heart-breaker, especially for sweet, rebellious, misunderstood Sally Draper. All I want is for Don to let her come live with him, or for her mom to suddenly stop being an evil word-that-rhymes-with-runt. I want to put my arm around Sally and tell her,…

“Mad Men”‘s Sally Draper Rebels By Cutting Her Hair, Flicking Her Bean

Poor Sally Draper! “Mad Men”‘s lisping spawn of Don and Betty is having a hard time in the aftermath of her parents’ divorce and Grandpa Gene’s death; she’s acting out in ways that stupify her dad and piss off her mom. On last night’s episode, Sally chopped off her hair (I thought she did…

Sally Draper Of “Mad Men” Models Burberry Prorsum Adorably

Following in mom’s fashionable footsteps, Sally Draper — as in Don and Betty’s daughter on Mad Men — recently modeled Burberry Prorsum for Interview Magazine. Kiernan Shipka, the 10-year-old who plays Sally, actually looks weirdly appropriate wearing clothes ten sizes too big and 20 years too old for her. More images from the shoot, after…
