Posed in time

I’ve watched the entire first season of Mad Men in 3 days and there are so SO many details about…where feminism was coming from…about female sexuality…about cultivating desire and living a lie. As blogger Lagusta Yearwood puts it so succinctly:
-It’s about femnism
-It’s about nihilism
My favourite moments are the strange ones: when Betty confides to Don that she wants to take a picture of Sally crying her big tears. Or the way she starts sending Don messages that she knows he’s having an affair, via his peeping on her psychotherapy sessions (“Just you with that little pad of yours.”).
This picture seems to somehow illustrate the mannequin beauty, the way of quoting the classics, and of strange adornments. Plus it’s gorgeous.
