Do the Draper

I'm *kind of* a huge fan of Mad Men.

And by that I mean that I drop everything on Sunday nights in the summer to watch.

Then race into work in the morning to flout our internet policy and read recaps all over the web.

Then spend time thinking about how uncomfortable underwear must have been back in the 60's...yet they all looked so chic.

Ok...so, I was anxious to see January Jones walk the red carpet in all of her Betty Draper glory.

And she did not disappoint...

While I loved the black satin dress with the dramatic shoulder and headband (I know, I know, some didn't like it, but I totally did), it was her red lips that blew me away.

Since one of my resolutions was to wear more red lipstick, I combed the interwebs for a breakdown...and found one easily from Amber at Beauty Blogging Junkie.

CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris...but it's not out until March.

But it will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.....

If you tend to be more on the fair side, MAC's Russian Red is a gorgeous classic red!

I think her lipstick is the only thing I loved about that look! :)

You should check out Illamasqua's Maneater - it's a pretty fab medium red (I'm as fair as it gets so yay for pale girls!) and it stays put until you scrub it off.

Did you see that her stylist tried to argue that nothing in the outfit was influenced by the show? He honestly told Allure that the hair was too modern to look like the 60s.

Un.real.

@Belle Yes, I did see that and it was supremely stupid.

@Jess and @leelee I'll have to check out Russian Red and the Illamsqua Maneater. My current red of choice is Ruby Woo by MAC, but I'm open to trying others!

I loved her look head to toe and that shade of red is perfect!

Thanks for the shout-out love! Looking forward to more live-tweeting during award shows with you :)

Try Lipstick Queen - either red or rouge - from the Sinner line (matte and highly pigmented). It's the most gorgeous lipstick I've ever worn. Annoyingly, it's not available in stores anywhere in the DC area, but you can order it online. www.lipstickqueen.com
