Though their two characters couldn't be more different, it looks like Jessica Paré has taken a page from Christina Hendricks' photo-shoot playbook for her latest glossy feature — sartorially speaking. The Mad Men breakout star ditched her chevron and Pucci-esque prints for floral embellishments and a graphic Mary Katrantzou number. While we'll always love her bold shift dresses and that legendary Zou Bisou Bisou frock, it's refreshing to see the actress in something more modern. Along with abandoning the retro wares we've become accustomed to, Paré also let her hair down for the shoot — literally, and figuratively!
With the more relaxed wardrobe, came a more at-ease actress — the star was super candid with L.A. Confidential, revealing that she's still in shock over her success, adding: "my drive to work is just this whole symphony of gratitude." She's also okay with the sex-symbol status that has blessed her: "I don’t hate it," she admits. Though we had our reservations about Megan last season, we're now totally smitten (who isn't?!), and cannot wait to see how Mrs. Draper develops during season six. So, as we patiently await Sunday's new episode, we'll be leafing through this sultry shoot and pouring over her captivating Q&A. (L.A. Confidential)
