How-To: The Look of Mad Men's Joan Holloway

Sep 24 2008 - 11:00am

Joan Holloway proves that you don't need to show skin to be the hottest woman in the room. (OK, she's often the only woman in the room, but still.) The Mad Men [1] character has a sultry secretary style that would still turn heads today.

Makeup artist Debbie Zoller researches every character's look [2] to make it as authentically '60s as possible, and she emphasizes Joan's personality through her makeup. "Joan knows how to get what she wants by using her skills and sexuality," Debbie says. "She reads all of the latest fashion magazines and knows what works best for her to make her presence known at Sterling Cooper. I play up her amazing eyes so she can mesmerize every man she comes in contact with."
