As Mad Men enters its seventh and final season it seems the perfect time to take a trip down the time tunnel to see how the show has changed the style of the main actors. When the cast gathered for the premiere of the final series it was clear the TV show has certainly helped with their wardrobes. Take a look at the transformations from Season 1 to 7 below…

Elizabeth Moss: From Peggy To Vixen

Elizabeth Moss stepped out at the Mad Men premiere just last week looking every inch the Hollywood vixen. Wearing an Alexander McQueen ensemble, the actress has never looked sleeker or sexier and it’s a far cry from her frumpy character in the TV show as well as the Elizabeth Moss of the past. When we delved into the Moss archives there were definitely a series of fashion misses, namely the denim ‘delights’ above and THAT leather AND sheer halter neck. What a combo of fabrics! Let’s be honest the early noughties were not kind to anyone but at least the neck scarf is SO OTM ATM.

January Jones: From Betty Draper To Designer Drapes

Can someone hear the fact klaxon? Well prepare yourselves team, January Jones used to be the girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher. Who knew! Back in 2000 the then model travelled the world on the arm of the floppy haired hunk for the promotional tour of Dude Where’s My Car. Yep, that classic film which will go down in history alongside Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Titanic. Fast forward past the metallic suit and the shawls, we have the January Jones of today, radiant in Roksanda Ilincic. Talk about a fash-over.

Christina Hendricks: From Naughty Noughties To Trendy Teens

Oh Christina Hendricks, you red haired raven you. How time is a healer for your look! Back in the day it was all inappropriate neck lines and sheer materials. Ok so now the necklines are only mildly inappropriate and the risqué fabrics have been ditched in favour of chain mail chic. The Christina of today is the text book example of how you can make the most of your curves without side lining the trendiest of looks.

Jon Hamm: From Don Draper to Dressing Don

Jon Hamm, your manhood may be legendary but your looks of the past certainly aren’t. Just before he hit the big time as Don Draper the actor clearly liked to merge into the background by matching his ill fitted suits to the tone of the carpet he was walking #earthy. Clearly in 2014 Jon is more acquainted with bespoke than he is off-the-rack and the actor is basking in the results, looking every inch the gentleman with a skinnier fit and casual check. SWOON!

Kiernan Shipka: From Child Star to Fashionista

Sometimes time is kind to child actors and unlike Natalie Cassidy and the girl who played Matilda it has been super kind to Kiernan Shipka, who has blossomed into a full on fashionista. It’s clear that with the end of Mad Men in sight the actress is creating a strong stylish image for herself before entering the big bad world of acting. For the premiere of the final season the young actress appeared in a long sleeved floral jacquard dress by Nina Ricci which is a far cry from the look of her younger self.

Jessica Pare: From Noughties No-Nos to Berardi Babe

Jessica Pare, who plays the second wife of the TV show’s Lothario, Don Draper probably wants to forget the early noughties ever happened if her fashion transformation is anything to go by. Stepping out at the series seven premiere in a one shoulder Antonio Berardi dress complete with bustier and snazzy split hem, Jessica was un-recognisable in comparison to the Jessica circa 2000. Oh the years when satin took over and off the shoulder tops were teamed with highlighter skirts! What satiorially scaring years they were. We need therapy after rediscovering those travesties.
