When it comes to Mad Men's meteoric rise to TV fame, we find ourselves asking: What came first, the chicken or the egg? Did the killer fashion make the show a hit, or did the characters and dramatic plot lines thrust the period pieces into a brighter spotlight? Either way, thanks to wardrobe wonder woman, Janie Bryant (voted by R29 readers as the most influential person in fashion back in 2010), never before has a behind-the-scenes dressing department gotten so much attention. Between filming and jetting off to a haute honeymoon, this Emmy-winning, book-penning, Banana Republic-collaborating (phew!) vintage maven somehow mustered up the time to give us the skinny on where she finds Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's beyond-cool blasts from the past. From a random antique attire shop in a strip mall to a super hush-hush Salvation Army fur sale, this guide will help you insta-morph into a Betty Draper-style diva. Just remember to keep your attitude in check.
