  1. That smiling guy must be creepy in real life because they're all leaning to get away from him. That first lady is even trying to hide behind a plant.

    Love the necklines on the dresses.

  2. Betty Draper, is that you?? These ads could not be more perfect!!

    1. The first model does remind me of January Jones! And I can see Betty Draper wearing that silver dress too.

  3. Those gals need some calcium or something! Stand up straight already! I want the silver fabric now!
