Jessica Paré as Megan Draper (From AMC)
Ever since she shimmied and shook her way into our hearts on the season premiere of Mad Men
, Don’s new French-Canadian wife, Megan Draper (played by French-Canadian actress Jessica Paré
) has captivated a legion of fashion-obsessed fan girls, garnering Megan-centric Tumblrs
in the process.
“Zou Bisou Bisou”
True, the wardrobe on AMC’s beloved period drama has always been a point of interest (raise your hand if you’ve attended a Mad Men
-themed cocktail party), but 26-year-old Megan’s sartorial choices are setting our hearts aflutter in the same way a new Target collaboration does: in a must-have-now manner. From seductive hemlines to groovy prints to mod-inspired makeup reminiscent of Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick, we’re recapping Megan’s best looks of the season thus far, complete with their modern day approximations.

Bien sûr, we must start with Megan’s infamous burlesque routine. Given the scene’s popularity, we’re expecting the arrival of black mini-dresses with transparent bell sleeves in stores soon. For now, the thigh-grazing Audrey with lace overlay from Tobi
($54) screams retro-sex bomb, and for a Megan-alike in neon, look no further than Nasty Gal’s tangerine Nyssa Dress
($220).Cheery Office Attire
As usual, Don was a Dick (Mad Men
fact-based double entendre!) post-surprise party, causing major interoffice tension for the married coworkers. Despite Megan’s heartache over her poorly received fête, Mrs. Draper’s bold tangerine-hued frock reflected a radiance that outshone her bad mood. Its modern day counterpart
by Dorthy Perkins ($55) is equally bright, adorable, and dare we say Middleton in tone. And really, who can resist a bit of peplum?

Retro Dinner Wear
The violet geometric-print dress Megan wore to accompany Don to his client dinner with Heinz literally made us gasp. And that chunky gold jewelry? Très chic! Try some gold tassel earrings, like this pair
from Andrea Valentini ($30) or this pair
by Kara’s ($25).Megan’s Makeup
A nude lip was a staple of ‘60s sirens and is equally gorgeous today. Go for Belle Du Jour
by NARS ($24) for a similar look.
