It's a Mad World

BY Intern Kerishma in TV

Restock your liquor cabinets and bust out your favorite bouffant hairdo, because Mad Men returns to TV on March 25! AMC’s mega hit has been in off-season for over a year, and the wait for season 5 has been unbearable. Read More
We're a month away from season 5 of AMC's runaway hit Mad Men. After an insufferably long break, I think we're all a little rusty on the tangled, sexy web our friends at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce have been weaving. Fortunately, we found a handy graphic that maps out all the affairs, flirtations, and well I guess old-fashioned committed sex that made us love this show so much. Read More
While Mad Men won't be back till early 2012, if you're missing the fabulous style created by costume designer, Janie Bryant, fear not, you can still get a dose of it come August when her 65-piece collaboration with Banana Republic's creative director, Simon Kneen, emerges. Check out some of the looks below and my thoughts on some of the pieces.    I'm definitely digging the men's wear, I'm a sucker for a bow tie or sweater vest, but I'm not totally sold on the women's wear. I see the inspiration, but I definitely see more Banana Republic than "Mad Men. Read More
I blog a lot about fashion blogs, which I love and can't get enough of, but I thought I'd showcase one of the blogs I go to the most for entertainment news and fashion opinions I respect: Tom&Lorenzo.

Even if you didn't keep up with the episodes of PR, this blog was the perfect way to keep up with the winners, drama, and hilarity of the show. Read More
(Or, alternatively, MY Personal (Brief) Ode to (and Mental Debate Over) Christina Hendricks) Since my little ol’ post pertaining to Christina Hendricks seemed to cause a bit of a stir yesterday, I thought I’d share this newly posted BBC article with everyone. Many of the concerns that were voiced yesterday have also appeared in this article as well! (Note: The following are my thoughts on bodies and such at this current moment in time. Read More
Just in time for last night’s season premiere of Mad Men (which I haven’t watched yet, so don’t tell me anything!), Christina Hendricks, the lovely Joan Holloway (whatever, she will always be Holloway to me, married to a turd or not), is being hailed as a fantastic role model for women and girls by Britain’s Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone. She is “absolutely fabulous,” so it goes. Of course I cannot help but agree. This statement is not entirely random; Ms. Read More
    Many of us here at Bust's HQ are enamored by Mad Men. The clothes! The 1960s decor! And let us not forget, the twisting and bold story lines. A few of us got to talking about television and our love for old television programs. Gilligan's Island came into the mix and we all decided - could our favorite ad execs be harpooned on an uncharted island? Some of these character comparisons are a little too close, if not funny. Is Mad Men a riff on Gilligan's Island? Judge for yourself... Read More
