We saw two equally stylish sides of Betty Draper last night on Mad Men; cute, conservative and ultra-endearing in Ossining, and all vamped up and sultry in Rome – and we can’t decide which version we like better. While we loved the effect of her towering hairdo (if only this was trendy, or remotely possible to do ourselves) and glitzy accessories in Italy, there’s something eternally charming about an a-line dress with a neatly tied, printed silk scarf. Since everyone should be able to go effortlessly from sweet to sexy, we suggest taking cues from Draper and picking up two essential items. Try a floral scarf in autumnal colors (it’ll go a long way) or treat yourself to a new little black dress, like this ABS design with lots of ruffles. Fabulous jewelry can make any outfit special, so browse our guides for the best in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.

Let's take a moment to acknowledge that Tim Gunn is always right. After attributing Lindsay Lohan's appointment as Ungaro's artistic adviser to a "crack-smoking board of directors," Gunn seems prescient as usual. Ungaro showed their spring/summer 2010 collection yesterday and received a barrage of bad reviews. One does suspect those are actually leggings from Lohan's own 6126 collection. And what is that heart thing on the poor model's head? We did, however, kind of like this white one-shouldered number. The draping is pretty, if not groundbreaking, and the dress reminds us that there is indeed an actual designer (Estrella Archs) behind the collection, too. Unfortunately, one dress does not a collection make. The debut was called, among other things, a bad joke of a fashion show by the straight-talkers over at Vogue's online home. We hope this means LiLo will get herself back into acting - we've been holding our breath for Mean Girls II for years at this point. If you're looking for Ungaro-esque clothing that recall's the line's 80s hey-day, we'd recommend getting some leggings, a cocktail dress, and a good pair of party shoes.
