Never mind the slick writing and storylines, Mad Men's fashion - all 60's silhouettes and nipped in waists - is what also captivates audiences. But what do the female stars look like when they leave the safety of the wardrobe department and dress themselves..?
JANUARY BLOSSOMS IN BLUE
Back in 2008, January Jones (AKA Betty Draper) went short in a pretty powder blue Mui Mui dress at the Mad Men season two premiere.
CHRISTINA DAZZLES IN SECRETARY CHIC
Even when she's not on-screen, Christina Hendricks is at her stylish best when channeling character Joan Holloway. Here she is demonstrating this in red - a strong colour for autumn - at last year’s Tenth Annual AFI Awards.
WHAT WOULD PEGGY SAY?
We didn't have Elizabeth Moss (AKA Peggy Olson) down as the Hervé Léger type, but she looked stunning when she arrived at Entertainment Weekly’s Pre Emmy soiree in this grey bandage offering last month.
Looking way more relaxed than her alter ego, January Jones chose a detailed purple dress and silver clutch to attend year’s Vanity Fair party where the cast celebrated Mad Men’s three Golden Globe nods.
CHRISTINA GOES GOTHIC
It's a world away from Mad Men, but Christina Hendricks pulled off this bird-adorned frock by Catherine Malandrino at last year’s Mad Men season three premiere.
Newly-single Elizabeth Moss gets into her fashion stride with a little help from Donna Karan at this year's Emmy Awards.
JANUARY GOES HOLLYWOOD GLAM
January shakes her Versace-adorned tail feather at this year's Emmy Awards.
CHRISTINA'S PURPLE CHIC
Another Emmy red carpet triumph; we love this show-stopping lavender Zac Posen dress that drapes over Christina's curves.
JANUARY TURNS BACK TIME
As if to prove she really can rock a frock from almost any decade, January wore 40s-era Versace at the 2009 Golden Globes.
ELIZABETH TRIES FLAPPER ON FOR SIZE
Elizabeth arrives at Mad Men’s season four premiere in a delicate vintage Twenties dress in flattering dusky pink.
