Elisabeth Moss has cut her shoulder-length hair short and gone platinum-blond, à la Miley Cyrus - but we prefer to think she's getting her Twiggy on, in keeping with the essence of "Mad Men" and its 1960s setting. Twiggy, of course, is British model Leslie Lawson, whose androgynous look made her a fashion icon and otherwise famous face in the mid-'60s. Moss rocked her new 'do on the "For a Good Time, Call ...

Most actresses have stayed away from prints, a huge fashion trend at the spring runway shows at New York Fashion Week earlier this month. One exception is Julianna Margulies, whose green brocade, couture-style Giambattista Valli gown seems to be weighing her down.

" Moss delivers that word during the fourth-season episode "The Suitcase," essentially a two-character show featuring Moss' earnest copywriter Peggy Olson and her mercurial boss, Don Draper (Jon Hamm).

This story has been updated. See below. One day, Elisabeth Moss (as Peggy) is giving her notice to Don Draper; the next, she's in an unheated shed in the outskirts of Queenstown, New Zealand, rehearsing for a Jane Campion mystery. “It was cold!” Moss told reporters Saturday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour. She was there to promote Sundance's upcoming “Top of the Lake,” joined by co-star Holly Hunter and producer Iain Canning.
