2013 Emmy Awards have come and gone and a few people cared. This post is for you. Let’s take a look at the best, worst, and WTF of 2013 Emmy fashion. I know Lena Dunham’s outfit is bound to get a few people talking.

Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men‘s Peggy Olsen) gave Jeremy Piven a well-deserved beat-down on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live on Bravo. Cohen does a segment called “Plead the Fifth” in which guests can pass on 1 out of 3 questions he asks. When asked about Jeremy Piven, Ms. Moss didn’t opt out at all.
Some backstory: do you remember when Jeremy Piven abruptly dropped out his Broadway show because he said he overdosed on mercury from eating too much sushi? It really pissed her off, and she NOT alone. US Weekly has the soundbites:
COHEN: What, besides eating too much sushi, caused Jeremy Piven to quit Speed-the-Plow?
MOSS: That’s a very good one. I could go on and on. Being highly unprofessional. [...] We were all surprised. It came out of nowhere. He just didn’t come back one day. [...] I saw him like a month later at the Golden Globes. When he was supposed to be really sick.
BOOM. Aren’t Broadway actor feuds just the best? Playwright David Mamet, who wrote Speed-the-Plow, snarked, “I talked to Jeremy on the phone and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury. So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer.” BOOM AGAIN. And if you haven’t heard about the whole Alec Baldwin/Shia LaBeouf mess, read up on it.

Elisabeth Moss is probably best known for playing Peggy Olson on Mad Men. Peggy is the leading lady who isn’t one of Don Draper’s wives or the busty redhead. Peggy is the one who is always given the least flattering outfits and hair styles. This is done for her character but can be a great disservice to Ms. Moss, so it was fun to see her all sexified for GQ. Not that she isn’t pretty on the show — and that’s not even the point — but it’s always interesting to see actors who are only known for one role and one look portrayed in a different light. And I think it’s a better light than this one. That one was a little too different.
And because GQ is such an enlightening magazine, they asked her to play “F-ck, marry, kill” with the men of Mad Men.
Oh brother. I don’t want to marry any of them! Impossible! I guess I’d marry…Sterling? F-ck Don. And I guess I have to kill Pete? But let me say for the record that none of these are things I’d ever want to do.
She wants to f-ck Don, does she? Oh I bet she does. We all want to f-ck Dong Hamm, don’t we? DONG-DONG-A-DONGITY-DONG I SAID AH-DONG-DONG DONGITY-DONG. Hamm.
(It’s funny because he has a big penis, that’s what I’m doing here, sorry if it was too subtle.)
Mad Men premiers tonight, woohoodong.

AMC released these boneriffic portraits of Season 6′s main players on Mad Men‘s Facebook page. Sadly, as you can see, the Fat Betty we all were shocked to see but fell deeply in love with, is gone. The most interesting thing January Jones EVER DID was taken away from us.
Oh well, enjoy the rest!
Unfortunately, there are no professional season 6 portraits of Mr. Hamm’s Dong Draper…that we know of.

The cast – including January Jones, Christina Hendricks and the one who was married to Fred Armisen (oh yeah, Elisabeth Moss!) – came out in Los Angeles on Wednesday night to celebrate the new season and looked pretty great doing it, as well. Also, I haven’t watched Mad Men since the first season, but love the addition of the token black character. And yes, that’s sarcasm.
Check out a gallery from the premiere below and let us know in the comments: who looked best?
