Standing O or Hell No: Jessica Pare

When I was 12 and wanted a bike, my mom saw to it that I found odd jobs.  "You can't pay for it with your looks," she said laughing.  (Ouch!)  Whereas most of us cannot pay or be paid for our looks, Jessica Pare is living proof that some people can.  Say what you want about her Mad Men character (self obsessed/bratty - there I said it!) she's actually believable playing opposite uber-handsome lead, Jon Hamm.  (Some of his earlier love interests - and I use the word love loosely - were not.)  Jessica here simply looks the part.  Speaking of which, she also looked the part of red carpet siren at Sunday's Emmy Awards in this deceptively simple Jason Wu gown.  Special kudos for the red lip against restrained make up and the tiny pop of blue that is her cocktail ring.  Standing O!
