Dyeing her hair blonde may have helped Christina Hendricks say goodbye to her TV alter ego Joan Holloway, but the Mad Men star did reveal that she hoped to experiment with Joan’s look more while the show was still filming.

Elisabeth Moss Looks Back at Her Mad Men Style: 'Girdles Are Annoying!'

Apr/03/2015 at 10:30 AM ET

There’s not much Elisabeth Moss won’t miss about playing secretary-turned-executive Peggy Olson on AMC’s Mad Men, but after nine years the actress admits she’s not sad to say goodbye to the old-school undergarments.

“They’re basically like Spanx,” Moss tells PEOPLE of the on-set girdles and pantyhose she wore under her early-’60s wardrobe. “I don’t like wearing Spanx, and I don’t like wearing girdles either. They’re just annoying.”

Christina Hendricks didn’t follow the dress code at the Made Men Black and Red Ball, but she did manage to make a major statement. The actress ruled the red carpet in a striking green Zac Posen confection with a detachable skirt (and it’s the kind of look that you need Joan Holloway-level confidence to pull off).

Mad Men's Makeup Artist on Joan's Red Lip, Betty's Best-Ever Look and More

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.”

5 Things We Already Know About Jessica Paré's Emmy Dress

Every time we see a new dress come down the runway at New York Fashion Week, we can’t help but wonder if we’ll see it on the red carpet during awards season, too. That’s why we had to ask Mad Men beauty Jessica Paré and her stylist, Cristina Ehrlich, about Paré’s upcoming Emmy ensemble when we chatted with them exclusively at the Jason Wu fashion show in New York City on Friday. And though they didn’t come right out and tell us what exactly she’ll be wearing, they did drop quite a few hints. And so, based on our conversation, here’s what we can conclude about her dress thus far.

1. It will be very, very tight. “I like to tell Cristina that if I can breathe or feel my toes, something is wrong,” she reveals.

2. That said, it will probably be loose around the armpits, because Paré tells us she needs ample room to, well, sweat. “I’m getting sweaty in the armpits just thinking about [the Emmys]. I’m so excited!” she gushes.

3. It may or may not top the dress that she wore last year. “My favorite red-carpet look of all time — and I think it will be my favorite one for a long time — is the dress Jason [Wu] made for me for the Emmys last year. It was a gorgeous piece, just the combination of textures and everything. I feel like such a woman in his clothes.”

Kiernan Shipka: I Don't Buy My Designer Dresses; I Mostly Just Look At Them Online

Kiernan Shipka, who plays little Sally Draper on the hit show Mad Men, may only be 13, but she’s already got one of the Hollywood closets we’d most like to raid.

“When it comes to clothes, I always look for something that’s fun and represents me,” Shipka told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Chanel dinner honoring artists at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. “My style is modern and elegant with a little more of a twist. I look a million times better in something that I love instead of something that is just pretty and not my style.”

The young fashionista works with a stylist to help choose her chic, age-appropriate outfits, but ultimately she’s the final word on what she wears.

“I make sure to pick out everything and I approve all of it myself,” she says. “Fashion has always been something I’ve loved since I was little. I could spend all day looking [at] and talking about clothes.”

The teen has worn Oscar de la Renta, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana to premieres and awards shows, so we had to ask: Are all those dresses just hanging in her closet?

“No, I don’t buy all this stuff,” she says with a laugh. “I mostly just look at them on the Internet. My regular wardrobe consists much more [of items] from Rag & Bone and a couple of good t-shirts from the Gap.”

And it sounds like a little Mad Men influence may have rubbed off on her, too. “I love to go vintage shopping in Los Angeles.” she says. “That’s my obsession right now.”

Tell us: What do you think of the tween’s chic style?
