That’s tough. Mad Men has spent the first five years of its existence in a rather buttoned-up world, whereas the vast majority of situations in our generation have become far more informal. Have you been to the opera lately? It’s a mess.
I do think there’s something to learn from Joan, though. The girl is curvaceous and sexy, but she’s never spilling out of her top or baring more of her flesh than she covers up. A little sex appeal goes a long way.
As for miniskirts: Really, John? When you see a miniskirt-clad girl, are you thinking you want to get up her skirt or put a ring on her finger? Ladies, there’s nothing wrong with a miniskirt, just keep it at mini and not micro-mini. A** cheeks are for the shower, yard work in cutoffs and sexy bathing suit mishaps. And, unless you’re built like Megan Draper, take heed of what you pair it with on top. Also, ladies, you know better: No kitten heels. Ever.
Finally, if your date is to a Mets game: All those rules are out. It’s time to buy a fitted T-shirt or tank top to support the team. After all, even Don sheds his suit from time to time — and I’m not talking about that ill-advised checked jacket (Megan seriously needs to reign him in). Plus, you can’t wear a suit or Joan’s sleek skirts to the beach!

Pippa Middleton – Pippa Middleton And Duke Of Northumberland
Pippa Middleton had the press suspecting as much last year when, following her split with ALEX LOUDEN, she went straight up to Alnwick in the northern UK county of Northumberland to spend a weekend with old Edinburgh University chum GEORGE PERCY. Now it seems that it’s official; the sister of new Duchess of Cambridgeshire Kate is dating the heir to the Duke Of Northumberland’s land and money – thought to be some £315 million.
Apparently the pair got together seriously on New Year’s Eve at a party organised by the Middletons. “Pippa sat herself next to George at supper and made sure she was hanging off his arm all night. And then she made her move,” said a source to UK newspaper The Sun. “It was like a shark circling its bait. Some people think she has always set out to do this.” The opinionated source continued “Pippa has always been close to him. There is no doubt this was a huge issue for her ex-boyfriend Alex. After they parted the first thing she did was spend a weekend on George’s estate in Northumberland. But now they are out in the open.”
If she moves up to Alnwick to be with Pecy, Middleton’ll find herself in some very fine surroundings indeed. The area of land Percy is set to inherit one day covers some 100,000 acres and 100 tenanted farms while the castle itself too is somewhat of a salubrious location, with parts of the ‘Harry Potter’ films being shot there.
