Mad Men returns for its sixth season tonight. You might be a fan of the show. You might not. But one thing you should be a fan of is the incredible talent the show currently possesses. And no, we're not talking about Roger Sterling's impossibly fast one-liners.
Mad Men's cast includes some of the absolute hottest women working today. From Don's wives to Don's secretaries to Don's mistresses—and a few other women who have thus far escaped Draper's grasp—everyone's favorite 1960s throwback is a showcase for a bevy of beautiful dames (that's what they said back then, right?). And since we've figured that the plot guessing should be left to the pros, let's take a look at the 10 hottest women to appear on the show. WITH GIFS.
(Note: Many of these pics aren't actually from the show. Basic cable has standards we don't.)
10. Maggie Siff (Rachel Katz)
The department store heiress was one of Don's earliest quests.
9. Alexis Bledel (Beth Dawes)
Because this is Rory Gilmore getting naked on the show.
8. Abigail Spencer (Suzanne Farrell)
Don gets hot for teacher in the third season with his kid Sally's instructor.
7. Caity Lotz (Stephanie)
An always-bikini'd college girl who Don attempts to bed. Unsuccessfully, to everyone's surprise.
6. Anna Camp (Bethany Van Nuys)
A blind date for Don in the fourth season. Not too shabby for a blind date.
5. Peyton List (Jane Sterling)
Roger Sterling's secretary and later, kind of understandably, his young second wife.
4. Christina Hendricks (Joan Harris)
Busty secretary alert!
3. January Jones (Betty Draper)
Her recent weight gain was this show's version of a season-changing tragedy.
2. Alison Brie (Trudy Campbell)
Pulling double duty on Community and Mad Men, making her many a couch potato's wet dream.
1. Jessica Pare (Megan Draper)
Because "Zou Bisou Bisou," motherfuckers.
