Hi Guys & Dolls!
Here we are at the 3rd installment of the Ladies of Mad Men Series! Betty Draper/Francis is a character I have a love-hate relationship with. She’s so easy to dislike: She’s selfish, vain, a terrible mother, image obsessed, but on the other-hand, she’s deeply unhappy, emotionally stunted as a teenager (her friendship with Glen), in the situation of being a powerless 1960’s suburban housewife who was terrified of admitting her husband’s infidelity. She desperately needs to talk to a psychologist, but it’s understandable she doesn’t trust them after… well, if you’ve seen the series you know.
As I said, I love-hate her.
Betty has had a lot of different makeup throughout the years, but one thing that stood out to me was people telling her (and her pride that) she looked like Grace Kelly. So I went for a very classic 1960’s housewife glamour look- simple, but elegant. I styled my hair like her the best I could (since mine is shorter/layered it was difficult, but pretty close) and added a necklace/earring combo that was my Grammy’s in the 1950s or 60’s. I hope you are loving this series as much as I am, and get ready because there is only one left- the new Meghan Draper!
