Mad Men is one of those shows that seems almost as defined by its appearance as by the story and characters. Would we be able to forgive Don Draper as much if he weren’t so often impeccably dressed while being a monster? Would the New York of days be as appealing if it wasn’t so beautifully furnished? Will anyone ever look as good in period clothes as Christina Hendricks did on that show? (No.) If you would like to ponder such mysteries in the actual presence of pieces of the set and some of the show’s wardrobe, The Museum of the Moving Image has an exhibit featuring costumes, props, and other material that led to the look and feel of Mad Men on through June 14th. January Jones visited today, and posted a couple pictures to her Instagram account of what’s on display:
For those of you just interested in watching Mad Men and not interested in/able to see the exhibition, episodes will begin again on April 5th and the series will conclude on May 17th.
