unholy war

After watching only 2 episodes of Mad Men, it's safe to say I'm totally obsessed. I am over the MOON for the costumes and set design. I like to revel in how far women have come since only being objectified secretaries. I also love love love Joan Holloway. Joan is played by Christina Hendricks and she is the definition of a femme fatale. She's not progressive enough to stand up against traditional gender roles so instead she embraces them, channeling her sex appeal to get what she wants while manipulating the powerful men around her to think it was their idea. It's only fitting that such a powerful-minded woman would also be powerful in appearance. Here's a taste of Joan:



Now go watch Mad Men, deal?

p.s. Somebody get me her entire wardrobe STAT. Also, I might need her hairstylist because DAMN that looks complicated.
