The Mad Men star and happy newlywed talks about true love, cute gloves, and the power of optimism.
Best Surprise
Meeting my husband [Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen] when my costar Jon Hamm hosted SNL. I woke up one day, got a call to appear in a sketch, and before I knew it, I had met the guy I'll be with for the rest of my life.

Best Saturday Afternoon Read
My book club recently fell in love with Francie, from Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. She's an optimist in the face of heartbreak.

Best Forgotton Custom
The gloves women wore in the '60s need a comeback. When I slip on Peggy's white silk ones on Mad Men, I feel so feminine and sophisticated.

The Best Way to Break a Sweat
I trained in ballet for years—it's the most rewarding exercise you can do because it works you from head to toe. It's cardio, strength, everything.

Best Style Icon
My mom. She knows what looks good on her, and she keeps it simple: bootcut jeans with a black tee, or a little black dress with pearls.

Best Time-Waster
Definitely online shopping. Not that I actually "shop"—I just put things in my cart.

Best Advice
Bet on yourself. Always.
