When Mad Men first premiered, people went gaga for the realistic costume designs of the 1960s ad agency. But now HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, with its alleged $50 million budget, is threatening to overtake the era of dry martinis and JFK by reinstituting the fashion of the 1920s. So we ask: What’s more your style?
• Christina Hendricks‘ tight, red dresses on Mad Men versus Paz De La Huerta‘s flapper-wear.
Winner: Tie (We’ve been Joan fans for so long that it’ll take more than one cute Moulin Rouge-inspired gettup to get us to worship at the alter of the showgirl.)
• Steve Buscemi‘s dapper Nucky Thompson vs. the even dappier Don Draper.
Winner: Draper (Sorry Steve, no one else will ever look as good in a suit as Jon Hamm.)
