Mad Men Season 4 Premier AMC July 25, 2010

I am so excited about the new season of Mad Men! If you are not familiar, it is on AMC and will be starting it's 4th season July 25th at 10pm. It takes place in the 1960's at a fictional ad agency called Sterling Cooper in New York City. It has received critical acclaim for it's  authentic history and visual style winning nine Emmy's & Five Golden Globes. It also has some of the best fashion, both men and women, from the 1960's. 

here is most of the core of the cast...Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, Vincent Kartheiser, John Slattery

these two look so fab...there were a lot of sleeveless dresses in the 60's (from what I see and am told)

Here is Jon Hamm as Don Draper with a background of "old" New York 

January Jones plays Betty Draper wife of Don and looks much like a Grace Kelly

it amazes me how much they smoked in the 60's..right at their desks and offices..I can't even imagine that now....they actually smoke clove cigarettes which Jon Hamm says does not taste too wonderful but looks good for the show.......

Christina Hendricks character Joan is very much in charge and has curves like Marilyn Monroe

Barbie even is into Mad Men, creating these gorgeous collector dolls...I love Betty's dress, just so beautiful 

Don and Betty...great photo and great clothes !! 

Bananna Republic is also getting into the Mad Men act. One week before the show's July 25 Season 4 premiere, the retailer will launch its Mad About Style campaign and style guide, which shows readers how to dress from 9 to 5 and then for dinner at 8. "Mad Men" characters will be featured alongside Banana Republic looks. 

The most important bit – entering to win a walk-on role -- is done by picking up a "ticket" at any Banana Republic in the U.S. and Canada between July 21 and Aug. 11. The ticket bears a code that allows customers to upload photos of themselves wearing their best "Mad Men" lookSeries creator Matthew Weiner will select the winner.

QVC is also becoming crazy about Mad Men as the costume designer, Janie Bryant, is releasing a collection based on the hit show. The Mod by Janie Bryant collection features 20 pieces of 60's fashion and will be available September 29th.

Be sure to check out Mad Men for the new season and previous seasons available on DVD if you want to start watching and need to see from the beginning. It is very addicting...

I guess this year's Emmy people think so as well as Mad Men has received 17 nominations for the 2010 awards !! Congrats to the show !!
