A few select cast members from Mad Men — Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, and Jessica Paré — visited talk show Katie this week to talk about this season of their hit show, and Katie Couric couldn't resist putting Hamm in the hot seat over why Don "can't keep it in his pants." Watch to see Hamm's funny response, along with Jones and Hamm addressing the work it takes to make Jones's character, Betty, look heavier than usual.

When in doubt, stick to a classic. That's what three leading ladies did this week, when they opted for a flicked-out cat-eye liner look. Mad Men star Jessica Paré paired hers with a sheer pink lip, while model Nicole Trunfio showed hers off with a twisted topknot at the Tribeca Film Festival. And Bryce Dallas Howard went the vintage route, swiping on a red lip to complement her liner. All three looks are winners, but whose made you meow?
January Jones and Jessica Paré met up with Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner for a chat about their onscreen relationship and, of course, Don Draper at the 92Y community center in NYC yesterday. It was just the latest panel discussion for the Mad Men cast after they dropped by The Paley Center in NYC on Tuesday for a group talk with Brian Williams. We got a chance to chat with Jessica ahead of that panel; be sure to check out our Mad Men interview!
Jessica followed up yesterday's red carpet appearance with her first late-night talk show stop on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, which she admitted made her "terrified." During her chat with Jimmy, Jessica discussed her now-infamous song from the show's fifth season premiere, "Zou Bisou Bisou." She revealed that her mom has taken to singing the tune and reenacting the scene at various dinner parties, much to the embarrassment of Jessica.
The cast of Mad Men and the show's creator, Matthew Weiner, stopped by the Paley Center in NYC on Tuesday to discuss how far the show has come in its six seasons. Before the panel got started, we chatted with Jessica Paré, who plays Megan; John Slattery, who plays Roger; and Kiernan Shipka, who plays the feisty Sally, about their work on the hit drama. Watch the clip to learn more about the show from the cast's perspective.
The stars of Mad Men got together to discuss their hit show at The Paley Center for Media in NYC last night. Jon Hamm, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, and the rest of the cast sat down with show creator Matthew Weiner and moderator Brian Williams for a candid discussion about the new season. During the beginning of the panel, Brian joked with Matthew about an inaccuracy from Sunday's episode — don't forget to check out our Mad Men recap — where Joan, played by Christina Hendricks, said that she had made a reservation at Le Cirque, a real-life NYC restaurant that didn't exist in 1968, when the episode took place. Matthew laughed, "Christina Hendricks isn't here, but she ad-libbed that part." Brian also asked about another un-'60s moment when Don ordered an "Old Spanish," a made-up drink from 30 Rock, which Jon, Brian, and John Slattery have all guest-starred on. Matthew and Jon confirmed that the drink order was purely a nod to Tina Fey's former show. The event was the second big night out for the group this week after they attended a BAFTA celebration of Mad Men in the Big Apple on Monday. Stay tuned for our interview with the cast from the Paley Center panel!
At last night's BAFTA New York celebration of Mad Men, the female cast members each showed off a different version of the metallic smoky eye. While their characters on the series would rarely be seen in such a dramatic beauty look, the modern-day women all wore the universal trend in a unique way. Christina Hendricks mixed a brown shadow with hints of shimmering pink to bring out her red hair and lipstick. Jessica Paré picked smudged eyeliner and taupe eye makeup for a classic sultry look. Finally, January Jones complemented her bright blue eyes with an indigo hue. Each star showed us how to customize the smoky eye look for different hair colors and features.
The cast of Mad Men got together last night at The Harvard Club in NYC, where they were celebrated by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. The show's leading ladies January Jones, Jessica Paré, and Christina Hendricks all chose different looks for the occasion — who gets your best-dressed vote? Jon Hamm, John Slattery, Vincent Kartheiser, and creator Matthew Weiner were also on hand and got together with their costars for a group photo on the red carpet.
It's been a busy few days for the Mad Men actors, who have been making the press rounds in the Big Apple following the season six premiere of their series earlier this month. John Slattery stopped by CBS This Morning yesterday and joked about how Matthew keeps the cast from leaking new scripts, while January sat down for an interview on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. They'll continue promotions today when they attend a panel at the Paley Center, and we'll be on hand to get the latest.
Last night's BAFTA NY celebration for Mad Men was the perfect excuse for the series's leading ladies to show off their offscreen style. January Jones, Jessica Paré, and Christina Hendricks proved that they're just as chic when they're not in costume — though some of their cocktail attire borrowed from their characters' retro-inspired glamour. In a formfitting emerald-green L'Wren Scott sheath with gold-beaded trim, Jessica channeled Megan Draper's '60s-era chic. Meanwhile, January was a far cry from her Betty Francis persona in a moto-style leather jacket by Versace, a printed miniskirt, and classic black pumps. As for Christina, the actress opted for a classic-feeling LBD (a staple in any fashion era), complete with a sheer inset at the neckline and finished with a pair of understated heels. That's the rundown on who wore what, now it's time to cast your vote: which Mad Men star was last night's best dressed?
