The Helmut Lang leather pants and the Louboutin boots were fine, but when January Jones added that Elizabeth and James denim jacket to her outfit, we had to look the other way. Fortunately, Jessica Paré still had her wits about her when she showed up at The Paley Center for Media in a gorgeous Roksanda Ilincic dress.

The Paley Center for Media convened a panel of Mad Men‘s cast and creative team to discuss the TV drama that has captured millions of viewers. It seemed a dressy enough event but not the floor-sweeping gown type, and so Jessica Paré’s dress choice was right on the money.

We love how the figure-hugging white dress with its geometric splashes of pink and yellow was both very ’60s in inspiration and modern in cut and length. It suited Paré’s polished hair and showed off her statuesque form. And the dress found a perfect match in Charlotte Olympia’s stark white pumps.

Roksanda Ilincic’s versatile, mod-inspired dresses make good wardrobe additions, especially when you’re usually attending events that require more than pants and denim jackets. Farfetch has several really good ones, including our favorite back in winter, a mint green wool crepe dress. Now, somebody tell January Jones.
