Mad Men Style at Banana Republic
Once in a while a show comes along that influences style to higher degree: Dynasty, Twin Peaks, Sex and the City, Gossip Girl, and now Mad Men. This year, we have two great retailers dedicating their entire collections to TV’s most stylish shows: Anna Sui for Target inspired by Gossip Girl and Banana Republic inspired by Mad Men. Two different looks, different age brackets, different decades but clearly both incredibly style inspiring. My Gossip Girl fav: Blair Waldorf, rich bitch at its best. My Mad Men fav, off course, is the icy Hitchcockian Betty Draper that could give Grace Kelly a run for her money.
I love Peggy’s transformation from drab to fab. She’s a smart girl next door transformed into an office powerhouse.
