Your favorite spots to shop in LA…

Acne Studios just opened up a store Downtown that’s awesome!  I also love Rag & Bone, as well as Opening Ceremony.

Your three favorite items in your closet… 

My black, vintage Celine sweater I got at a consignment store, my black Rag & Bone booties, and my Chanel loafers that I found at a vintage store.

If you could switch closets with one person in the world who would it be?

Probably Alexa Chung.

LA spots we’d be sure to find Sally Draper…

I think Sally would be shopping on Melrose during the day.  I feel like she’d go to some fun, roller rink at night. Then maybe she’d grab a late dinner at Canter’s.

What are some fun facts about your cast members we may not know? 

Despite the fact that they’re all extremely talented, dramatic actors, they’re hilarious. And we love games, especially Catch Phrase and Heads Up! When there’s any down time, we’re playing one of the two.

What are your favorite cities for food and where do you go in each? 

In LA,I usually go out on the weekends with my friends and family. For brunch, I love Cooks County, Sqirl, and BLD. Dinner-wise, Jitlada is always delicious and spicy! One of the owners, Jazz, is the funniest person. She has this great necklace that you get to hold and make a wish. It’s very fun. I love sushi, and currently, Sugarfish is my favorite. On weekdays, I love when I’m able to grab a smoothie for breakfast at Naturewell. M Cafe is great for healthy lunches.

In New York, I love Nobu! It’s my go-to, and when I go to NY, I’m usually only there for a day or two at a time.

Earliest funny memory on the set of Mad Men…

I remember, one season in particular, everyone was getting super into Words With Friends and it was funny to see roll out. We were all getting so competitive, but it was so fun.

Also, my first day on set, I had to wear a plastic bag over my head. It was the first time Sally was ever seen, and it was just such a humorous moment. There was a stunt coordinator and everything. It all felt so official. I couldn’t have been more excited.
