As if we needed another reason to closely follow Mad Men's impeccable style choices: It turns out the newest Mrs. Draper's looks come directly out of the 1966 editions of Vogue. The Awl gives the full pictorial breakdown, outfit-by-outfit, of Megan Draper's sartorial bests and their Vogue counterpoints, and then tops it off with a rundown of the the changes happening at the magazine at the time. If you recall, Diana Vreeland took over as EIC in 1963 and proceeded to inject the glossy with "downtown trends, more sex appeal, and more iconic 60s girls in the magazine’s pages, girls like Edie Sedgwick, Baby Jane Holzer." Which is pretty much exactly what Megan Draper is doing for Mad Men. [The Awl]
