Jessica Pare skyrocketed to fame after the 2012 season premiere of , when she gave a breathless rendition of the ’60s French pop song while wearing a black, sheer-sleeved mini dress that, too, stole the show. The Janie Bryant-designed piece was so jaw-dropping, in fact, that creator/executive producer Matt Weiner tells THR, “It was knocked off and in stores in three weeks.

So this season there was some strong fashion pressure on both Pare and the show’s costume mastermind, Bryant. But after seeing the two hour Season 6 premiere last night, we have a feeling the next Megan Draper overnight knock off will be a silver jumpsuit with a keyhole neckline.
“That was my favorite outfit, Pare revealed to, explaining “It’s vintage. Almost all my clothes on the show are vintage.”
The Prabal Gurung pre-fall 2013 calf-length sheath she sported at last night’s premiere was also decidedly retro. Which provided a nice backdrop for the mod-infused Prabal Gurung for Casadei black mesh ankle strap pumps she paired it with.
While Pare doesn’t sing in the season opener, she makes an equally powerful impression, especially while swaying in brightly colored Pucci-esque print caftans while on vacation in Hawaii with husband Don (Jon Hamm). “I loved wearing those!’ she says. "They are so comfortable I could live in them.”
Pare also wears some period bikinis on the beach, that is before taking them off in bedroom scenes.
So set those DVRs, fashion fans. The Season 6 two-hour premiere airs on AMC on April 7.
