Remember Paul Kinsey, the bearish-looking, bearded, cuddly fellow who worked at Sterling Cooper? He re-emerged in last night's episode with his head shaved aside from a ponytail emerging from the back of his shiny dome like, well, a particularly puny tail. Having become a follower of Hare Krishna, a Hindu-based religion, Paul now dresses in dirty robes and dates a greasy-haired fellow worshipper named Lakshmi, whose draped red sari apparently make for easy access, if you know what we're saying. Meanwhile, it's Christmas! Isn't it fun to see all these red outfits just as we're all packing away the last of our winter sweaters? Roger drunkenly stumbles around the office in a terrible printed vest, while an angry Megan wears red sequins and Don remains far too cool to deign to holiday-themed attire.
Secretary Scarlett hasn't gotten much play in a while, so it's nice to see her make a strong return in this draped scarf/tie thing. The striped color scheme calls to mind a cocktail napkin that an airline stewardess hands out with your terrible in-flight $12 bloody mary. In other news, the neck pin looks nice.
The accountant's festive vest/tie combination
Points for holiday spirit! This guy definitely qualifies for a "bowlful of jelly" comparison.
Don's decidedly non-festive everything
He just doesn't do theme dressing.
Harry's full plaid outfit
Harry wears head-to-toe plaid (tie, suit, and coat) to visit Paul at the Krishna center, which makes him stick out even more than he already does. Don't you start sweating just looking at him?
Paul and Lakshmi's Krishna outfits
Hands-down twoof the most amazing costumes of the entire season, particularly Paul's baby ponytail and yellowy turtleneck, which he totally wore (in its whiter days) back in the days when he was working at Sterling Cooper. Lakshmi gets points for her stringy hair and sari. Neither changes clothes throughout the episode, because it would appear that they don't change clothes ever.
Joan's unfortunate dress repeat
Ugh, of all the dresses to repeat from this season, she picked this one?
Roger's Pearl Harbor Day outfit
Roger observes Pearl Harbor Day by getting drunk by noon, putting on this shirt (its origins remain a mystery), and wandering around the office flirting with the secretaries and Joan. Speaking of Joan, they have their first baby talk! Needless to say, she doesn't take him seriously.
Megan's theater-going outfit
Megan almost veers into Jane Sterling territory with the red sequins and chandelier earrings, which she wears to drag Don to one of her friend's plays. But the play makes fun of advertising, causing Don to get prickly, which in turn causes Megan to accuse him of being hypocritical, and rightfully so ("People make fun of actors all the time, and you love it"). Jane Sterling she is not.
Peggy's sad attempt to look Christmas-y
And you'd think for sure that Peggy's mom would have a whole drawer-ful of terrible Christmas sweaters stashed away somewhere for her.
Scarlett's scarlet dress
We just wanted to type that.
Joan's purple florals
Joan wears this dress to play Don's fake wife when they go to test-drive a Jaguar. They then have a heart-to-heart over drinks and discuss Joan's divorce, causing Don to be late for dinner at home with Megan.
Megan's angry pants
Megan is furious with Don for being late with no warning, even though he explains exactly where he was. She throws a plateful of spaghetti at the wall -- why must her tantrums always involve food messes? -- and stomps into the kitchen to get his dinner, looking fabulous in her striped pants all the while.
