Lady in Blue

January Jones is the second reason (after Jon Hamm) I watch Mad Men, actually all of the cast are. I think she is very elegant, a modern lady, never showing too much nor beeing  a prude at the same time. She hits the right balance all the time, even when in jeans. This is how all young actresses should dress. Last night at the Emmy's she was dashing. The bold choice of color and design of this Versace gown, suited her figure perfectly. With only the right amount of bare skin she looks classy and modern at the same time. Her loose shine hair and this discrete make up complete the look. Talk about nailing the look, Congratulations Mrs Draper!

Bag a bug !

Big, Shiny and Stylish, bugs were allover the place at the Bottega Veneta show. We are used to a more classic, kind of uptight yet feminine looks at the milanese house but these jewels were surely a welcoming surprise. They are kind of scary and kind of cute at the same time. They are on sale at net-a-porter and if you can't afford the amazing Lacquered silver knot insect clutch maybe those earrings ... no? Well I can't spend this much either, maybe I'll stick with topshop bumble bee ring or this insect one
You know I am about to start hunting for more insects, you can tell it from all the flies I use as a background that I find them very appealing (of course I don't enjoy their company if they are alive)

The charming Jon Hamm

I loved Mad Men the day I watched the very first episode. It wasn't mainly about the plot, it was the characters, the atmosphere of the late 50's and of course the charming Don Draper, actor Jon Hamm. So when I saw his latest cover on W Magazine I absolutely loved it. He is posing with his costar, in the Ben Afleck directed upcoming movie, "The Town", the lovely Rebecca Hall and they both look stunning. You can read the entire interview here. What I think is mostly worth bying this issue, is the amazing photospread of the two. I find it very interesting when actors, singers etc. are photographed as if they are models telling a story through the pictures. Shot by Nathaniel Goldberg and styled by Lori Goldstein, Jon Hamm looks breathtaking. This is what all men should look like, polished and put together, while at the same time masculine and relaxed. Metrosexuals are definetely over, welcome back real men!
