Now that we’ve reached the near end of Mad Men, we have a lot of questions regarding the show. Will Don Draper ever be truly happy? What will happen to the agency we’ve all come to know and love? Will Peggy and Draper ever make TV audiences cringe in some Friends-esque coupling? And will Tyrion Lannister ever catch a break (I know it’s the wrong show, but still, seriously though).
None of these ponderings will be answered until 2015, although one query we can answer with full certainty is which of the ladies featured in the show are the most gorgeous, tantalizing, badass, and steamy. Below is a list of who I believe to be the very sexiest of the Mad Men belles.
Suzanne Farrell (played by Abigail Spencer) because she was Sally’s teacher and that makes it so illicit, it’s delicious (just makes Don look more reprehensible but begrudgingly awesome).
Betty Francis (January Jones) for having revenge on Don that one time, for making Henry look like a fool sometimes, and for basically being an intimidating bombshell.
Beth Dawes (Alexis Bledel) for that time she wore nothing but a fur coat in Pete’s office (she’s Rory Gilmore and it’s wrong but it’s also right).
Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks) for staying awesome even though the rest of the men treat her way worse than she deserves, for being the show’s best femme fatale, and for redefining beauty (you know, in all of American culture).
Trudy Campbell (Alison Brie) for making Pete finally look like a sniveling fool, for apparently having a rad life outside of anyone’s expectations, and for being played by Alison Brie.
Margaret Hargrove (Elizabeth Rice) for being unhinged in all the best ways and basically joining a hippy commune (makin’ love near goats and stuff).
Megan Draper (Jessica Paré) for that time she sang “Zou Bisou Bisou” and that other time where she became an L.A., elegant, bohemian hippy or something and did threesomes.
Bonnie Whiteside (Jessy Schram) for stealing the show during the 7th season and making Pete look like a tool (not to the extent Trudy does, but it’s still awesome) at life and business.
One can only hope that the second half of the much awaited 7th season features even more classy, sensual, badass ladies, and more opportunities for the existing female cast to continue their sexy sagas. We may have seen the last of Megan Draper, though, and that’s sad (who will sing in French now?).
