Betty Draper has much to fear, relying on the benefits of good looks and a svelte figure, only to have them disappear before her eyes. Betty Draper, “middle aged”?! January Jones utilizes pregnancy AND a fat suit to better betray the side-effects of a bored and disillusioned housewife, and it’s just the kind of subtle dramatic that Matthew Weiner is most adept. Our reading of the tea leaves show that even though Betty may not quite be the light of people’s lives, she will somehow take control of this situation. Mother-in-law, be forewarned. To inspire a little Don era Betty sass, we chose this Mad Men Betty Draper mug with our morning coffee. Shop the official Mad Men store for this and other original merchandise.
