Today I have a retro fabulous Mad Men Wedding Shoot and a shameful secret to share – I’ve never seen Mad Men! I did lose a bet and have to dye my hair red and dress as Christina Hendricks once, but it doesn’t take an AMC fan to recognize gorgeous styling when you see it. Esenses Studio captured this incredible shoot at Montreal restaurant and bar, Les Incorruptibles, although it looks like they just swung by the set of the show and caught the actors in a quiet moment.
It’s hard to imagine that the inspiration for this mod style came from the same decade as last week’s Peace and Love shoot! If I’ve learned anything from reading a lot of Tom & Lorenzo (aside from the fact that the time and place for nude shoes is pretty much never), it’s how incredibly fashion trends changed throughout the 60’s through their Mad Style posts. The A-line tea-length wedding dress and flipped hair is reminiscent of the early decade when 1950’s style and values still held sway. Brides still tended towards traditionally feminine looks – demure necklines, nipped waists, and wide skirts. Of course, what would a Mad Men inspired shoot be without a close look at gentlemen’s fashions; for the perfect Don Draper, all you need is a well-cut suit, expertly tailored, with a narrow tie – and a cocktail in hand.
