The week's Mad Men stuck mostly to the office, with the exception of a few fabulously awkward dinners and one outing to an upscale brothel. The episode's sartorial high point occurs when Trudy Campbell forces the Drapers and Cosgroves to come out to Connecticut for a dinner party, resulting in all three husbands wearing plaid dinner jackets (even Don!) while Megan takes purple eye shadow to new levels. Meanwhile, Lane gets back to his British roots at a World Cup viewing party, Joan wears several pussy bows, and Pete makes an ass of himself after tucking his tie into his shirtfront. See all of the episode's best looks in our fashion recap.
Rebecca and Lane show their British colours
To cheer on their home country in the World Cup, Lane and Rebecca get kitted out in their jolly British finest. Now we understand what those grumpy Brits meant when they complained that Stella McCartney's Olympics uniforms "weren't red enough."
Peggy's breakfast dress
How quaint that both Peggy and Ken have time for a nice leisurely plate of eggs before work! In other news, this dress is very well-tailored.
Megan's wannabe cheerleader outfit
Go Wolverines! Er, just finishing up a few things on Don's typewriter.
Trudy's baby-feeding dress
Trudy may be annoying and Pete may be a snake, but that baby girl is utterly adorable. When she grows up she can make lovely pillowcases out of all her mother's old dresses.
Joan's pussy bow, round one
We didn't get to see any of Joan's sexy house robes this episode, but her blouses never disappoint.
DON'S PLAID BLAZER!
This season has already brought us some fabulous plaid blazer moments, but nothing compares to this fabulous trio of husbands at Trudy and Pete's dinner party. Don was planning to wear his usual sexy standby (a dark, solid-color suit) when Megan intervenes and insists that he wear this. "We're going to the country!" she protests, because leaving Manhattan is always a great excuse to look absurd.
Cynthia, Megan, and Trudy's dinner-party dresses
No one can recall Cynthia's name, but her dress's crotch bow is certainly memorable. Megan is both the most covered up and the coolest-looking of the three wives in her groovy dress, while Trudy appears to be wearing a belted sofa. Also, Megan's purple eyeshadow looks fabulous until the camera gets too close, and then she resembles a very pretty drag queen.
Anonymous hooker's cleavage
There isn't much to say about her dress, since it comes off right away.
The Madam's yellow muumuu
This could be pure coincidence, but why is it that all the women who try to convince Don to cheat on Megan wear bright yellow?
Joan's pussy bow, round two
It's always interesting to watch the interaction between Joan's trademark pen necklace and her elaborate necklines. Should it go under the bow? Over? In this particular instance, we don't even know what's happening.
Peggy's girlish pleats
From the waist down, she looks like a Girl Scout, or the Molly McIntyre American Girl doll. So basically, she and Sally should start sharing closets soon.
Lane puts up his dukes
Lane's vest saves him from having to do anything about his necktie before challenging Pete to a fight. (Pete, on the other hand, has to go about the embarrassing business of tucking his tie into his shirtfront. In other words, the fight was over before it even began.) Doesn't Lane look rather dashing, in a scruffy Eton schoolboy sort of way?
After Pete gets his ass handed to him by Lane, he slinks onto the elevator with his tie askew and his face bloodied. He blubbers a bit on the way down, while Don stands by and looks pefect. The crooked tie totally makes the scene.
