I have found myself, like the rest of the fashion world, slightly obsessed with Mad Men and in particular Betty Draper’s style.  This is a woman who never has a hair out of place and has the most enviable of 1960’s wardrobe’s, just the right mix of Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe.  If you can picture yourself as a Betty Draper style bride then below is the Bijou guide to getting the look.

This Jason Wu dress is perfect with full skirt, high neckline and simple black bow, team with heavenly heels that mirror the bow detail and elegant white gloves.  Mad Men’s wives embody their husband’s success and Betty wouldn’t be seen dead without her pearls and diamonds.  Finally to complete the look you must wear winged eyeliner (Lancome’s Artliner makes a precise flick simple) and generously apply hairstyle to hold those waves in place.
