“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you are going to mess it up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up… So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe

Mad Men Sketches At The Smithsonian

I think it’s safe to say that nearly everyone is a fan of Mad Men. While I’ve only watched a few episodes myself (totally need to fix that) I’ve loved what I’ve seen – including the costumes! And amazingly, you can catch Emmy Award-winning costume designer Janie Bryant, best known for her designs on Mad Men, as she is interviewed Sept. 9th by cultural historian Amy Henderson at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Bryant will “discuss her inspirations behind the costumes she designs for Mad Men and how the show has influenced contemporary style,” after which participants can view a selection of Bryant’s original sketches (examples below!) while sipping Mad Men-inspired cocktails. So cool, right? For tickets and information, visit www.smithsonianassociates.org.
