About the Costume

Jonny Herbert designed this white chiffon gown with large colorful circles in the 1960s. One of them was purchased by Janie Bryant for use on January Jones as Betty Draper in the 2008 second season of Mad Men, in the episode entitled A Night to Remember. The dress was dubbed by Bryant as Betty’s “Sad Clown Dress.”

The dress seems to have gone on to live another life in the 2023 series Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, where it was worn by an extra in the episode Or at the High School Dance…The dress is the same one worn by January Jones, as the colors and placement of the dots line up exactly.

A version of this dress was sold on Etsy, and the listing offers more details about the design and materials.
