Elisabeth Moss in Mad Men

Girl Crush du Jour: Elisabeth Moss

It can't be easy playing a repressed character, but the women of Mad Men, in addition to walking around in some pretty form-fitting period clothes, must also express themselves from an early '60s version of womanhood which was restrictive in a different way.

Which brings me to Elisabeth Moss, who plays Peggy Olson, the lone female copywriter in a testosterone-saturated office full of arrogant ad men. Playing the game — while performing femininity as it's expected — Peggy keeps her cool and holds her own against the big boys. January Jones as the miserable Betty Draper may get more press, but Elisabeth's character intrigues me more! I'm girl crushing big time.
