Apr/11/2014 at 11:49 AM ET

Sure, we’re going to miss the amazing pitch meetings at Sterling Cooper Draper Price, Don and Roger’s banter and all those gorgeous period clothes, but one of the things we’ll miss most of all about Mad Men is the amazing beauty moments created on the show. That’s why we wanted to chat with fabulous makeup artist Lana Horochowski — who is responsible for the memorable looks sported by Betty, Joan, Megan, Peggy and the rest of the cast — as we wait anxiously for Sunday’s season 7 premiere.

As one of L’Wren Scott’s biggest celebrity fans, Christina Hendricks has worn the designer’s dresses for many of her most special events. And the actress honored Scott — who took her own life March 17 — by wearing one of her creations to a PaleyFest event this weekend.

The curvaceous Mad Men star selected a green midi dress with gold embroidery at the waist — a feminine, flattering number also loved by some of Scott’s other big fans, Penélope Cruz and Ellen Barkin (below). Hendricks finished the look with a gold clutch and pumps to highlight the metallic embellishments along the waistline and trim. And she radiated the bombshell confidence which she credited Scott’s designs for giving her.

“L’Wren’s clothes make you feel like a sexy pin-up, a sophisticated lady and a rockstar all at once,” she told the U.K.’s Telegraph in 2011. “She designs for how women want to look and for what men want to look at.”

If you don’t have your Emmys countdown clock handy, that’s okay: We’re here to remind you that TV’s biggest night is Sunday (and you’re going to be here live-tweeting and talking gowns with us, right? Good.). Of course, stars certainly haven’t lost track of time — they’ve been spending all week cleansing, dyeing, deep-conditioning and generally laying low until the big day.

Since they’re going to have cameras catching them from every angle, a fabulous complexion is key. So we rounded up a few of the ways that top TV stars have primped in the past, as well as some things we know they’ll be indulging in this go-around.

Christina Hendricks Cuts Her Hair - Do You Love It?

We’re pretty sure her conservative Mad Men character wouldn’t approve, but we’re loving Christina Hendricks’s new chin-length cut.

At a promotional event for the show in N.Y.C., the actress debuted the kind of picture-perfect bob that’s worthy of being printed out and taken to a salon — from the length to the layers, it’s stunning on the star.

Initially, we didn’t realize how much shorter it was, because Hendricks tends to hit red carpets with her hair curled (check out her last look here), but when we compared it to the star’s street style, it became clear just how much she’d lopped off.

And what a difference a few inches makes! Her new do is fresh and youthful and really brings out her delicate features. We’ve made it clear how we feel about it, so now it’s your turn: What do you think of Hendricks’s new cut?

Mad Men's Christina Hendricks Has How Many Pencil Skirts?!

There’s something to be said for learning on the job, as Christina Hendricks can attest. She’s definitely picked up a few things from playing Joan on Mad Men, now in its sixth season.

“[I've learned] more about confidence and trusting your decisions,” she says in the May issue of Flare magazine. “And about pencil skirts, which I now have, like, 75 of. I was like, ‘Why didn’t I know about this skirt before?’”

But the star, who says she’s really more of a “caftans” girl in her downtime, doesn’t want to be limited to just the ’60s-appropriate clothes her character wears so well. One of the perks of being famous, she says, is that “I get to wear much prettier clothes than I used to and I really like that perk.”

Among her favorite things to wear? “There are definitely designers that I just love and I just know work really well with my figure,” she tells Flare. “L’Wren Scott, Vivienne Westwood, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera. Those are designers that you’ll always see me wear again and again.”
