Last night's Mad Men finale was a poetic conclusion to an explosive season, and the outfits were a nice mix of new (Peggy) and old (Joan). Marie made a good showing in her trim monochromatic dresses and skirt-suits during her visit for "Easter " (actually, Roger Sterling), while Megan hit a new low by staggering around drunkenly in lacy floral pajamas. Joan recycled a few of her mainstays, including a floral blue dress from two episodes ago, and Ginsberg wore another stained shirt. Finally, it appears that our girl Peggy went shopping — praise be! Click ahead for our recap, complete with a parting shot of Roger's white derrière.
Marie's blue bathrobe
She's just in town to spend Easter with her daughter, make eggs for her son-in-law, and see what the Cloisters are all about. Don't mind her in her nice fuzzy bathrobe. She's not just waiting around for Roger to call or anything.
Beth's crazy-train outfit
Beth looks suitably Stepford-esque in this matching beige ensemble, but the award for best garment in this scene goes to the silk scarf tied around the handle of her suitcase, which Pete fondles dolorously before Beth escapes to the smoking car.
Joan's magenta coat
Joan and her gorgeous jewel tones do their best to stave off the advances of Harry and his cacaphony of plaids on the elevator, but it's a losing battle.
Peggy's power suit
This is our first time seeing our girl Peggy at her new job, and it looks like she took her big raise and went shopping! Her power-lady makeover looks fantastic, but, really, anything's an improvement over those mannish button-downs.
Ted Chaough's turtleneck
Wait — Peggy's new boss wears coordinated blue turtlenecks and blazers?! If we needed a sign that he's drastically different from Don Draper, this would be it.
Scarlett's red knits
It's just so easy to remember Scarlett's name.
Joan's business face
She's not a secretary anymore, dammit! Stop looking at her pen necklace!
Beth's 'please give me this' dress
Before getting shipped off to the funny farm for electroshock therapy, Beth invites Pete over to a midtown hotel for one last rumble. Her candy-pink sailor dress makes her look girlish and fragile. Perhaps its sugary color has some connection to Pete's affinity for "fresh" Lifesavers.
While hanging out with her be-striped actress friend (and then blatantly stealing her audition), Megan wears one of her usual sweaters with cropped pants that have just a hint of a flare. You know what this means, guys! Season six = bell-bottoms.
Marie's demure blue dress
Just hanging out in her blue dress, waiting for Sterling's "heavy breathing" to turn into actual "conversation."
Rebecca Pryce's mourning dress
Instead of all black, Rebecca wears a trim camel-and-black dress. Why isn't she in traditional widow's garb? Perhaps it's her stiff upper lip (and the circumstances of Lane's death). She's unimpressed with Don's attempts to assuage the situation, and doesn't give him any relief — literally, not even a drop, because she has "nothing in the house."
Marie's 'I'm going to the Cloisters' outfit
"Don't mind me in my impeccable green skirt-suit. I'm just going to hammer home all your mommy issues by abandoning you in your misery with a fully-stocked liquor cabinet while I enjoy my dalliance with your husband's business partner."
Megan's drunk pajamas
Don't lie — this has been you at one point or another.
Beth's funny-farm nightie
Beth's brain is so fried that she's reduced to an innocent, childlike shell, listening sweetly to Pete's problems. It's no coincidence that she resembles a doll in her delicate gown. Of course Pete's infatuated — she's exactly what he wants.
Peggy's power outfit, part deux
Peggy runs into Don at a matinee movie because she, like him, is such a bigwig now that she can leave the office whenever she wants. Yes, her dress matches the theater's plush seats, but she looks great anyway.
Joan's floral repeat
It's too bad we have to see Joan repeat a dress in the finale (she wore this during her prostitution episode two weeks ago). But at the same time, she looks fabulous, so it's cool.
Megan's 'big break'
Don says, "You don't want it to be like this." We agree.
Don back on the prowl
Oh, Don. We forgive you that one terrible (amazing?) dressing indiscretion this season. As for other potential indiscretions — well, we'll have to see.
Roger's Titanic moment
Okay, so there's no fashion going on here, but sometimes the absence of clothes makes this biggest (best?) statement of all.
