don draper disapproves

been thinking about mad men a lot lately. i know that a fifth season is on the cards, but no one knows when it’s coming back. apparently it’s a money issue. critically acclaimed but not exactly bringing in the big bucks … like mostly everything that is cool in the world? don draper’s myriad of disapproving facial expressions shows how i feel about this.

this was sort of an excuse just to look at jon hamm’s face. screencaps courtesy of  emma-jane & jon hamm source

period dramas vs street style: part two

here is the second part of my period drama / street style colour comparison series over at le projet d’amour. man, i really enjoyed doing these! i just finished watching the new upstairs downstairs, which was such a hit for the bbc that it is set to return in 2012 with 6 more episodes. recommended viewing if you miss downton abbey.

click through to see sources, credits & the rest of the series.

the king’s speech

i watched the king’s speech this weekend and unsurprisingly loved every minute of it. colin firth is as good (great) as everyone says he is, geoffrey rush is always brilliant and helena bonham carter is flipping delightful. the set design & colour palette throughout the film is also quite mesmerizing - lionel logue’s office in particular. if this movie doesn’t win every single award it will (hopefully) get nominated for at the oscars, it’ll be a damn shame.

also look out for jennifer ehle (lizzie from the bbc production of pride & prejudice) as geoffrey rush’s wife!

be sure to read my post about king george & elizabeth, i love them even more now after watching this.
