I was so excited to get to attend the Mad Men Finale party with the cast and creator of Mad Men last night at The Academy of Television Arts and Science. First we watched the Mad Men Season 5 finale, then the Chris Connelly moderated Q&A, and then a fun cocktail party. Sorry about the quality of picture, they're all with my iPhone.
Here is Christina Hendricks at the cocktail party looking gorgeous as always. I loved what she had to say about Joan's choice to sleep with the Jaguar guy. She felt that it was more of a selfless act to be able to provide for her family. That Joan's character was not making much money and was refusing funds from Roger and this one act would provide stability for her family. Looked at from this angle wouldn't any mother go to this length to take care of their child. I'm sure most would do much more "unpalatable" things.
The adorable Kiernan Shipka is amazingly well spoken. Often showing up her adult cast mates by comparison.
Joan's "stake her claim" at the office after having baby Kevin dress. So pretty.
Jane's LSD dress, no wonder Roger chose to go au natural on his second trip, who could top this fabulousness. Costume designer Janie Bryant really does do the most amazing clothes for this show.
