OK darlings, here we go. Forbes magazine has persuaded (bet it didn’t require much) some of Madison Avenue’s finest to parade in their best kit for an article The Real-Life Mad Men (And Women) of 2012. There’s a slide show in the link.
It’s quite hard not to look or sound a prat in these things but they mostly succeed in evading the trap. Still it’s no mean feat to persuade AKQA’s Ajaz Ahmed to don a jacket and tie. Our favourite is Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal’s formidable Lori Senecal (pictured, it’s not Ajaz), striding panther-like along what looks like a posh subway.
Lori bases her style on Apple, she says, and dines every Friday at the bar of Nobu (don’t ask her for a job though). Her Caroline Herrera frock cost $2490, her Prada purse (is this American for handbag?) rather more at $2820 while her Bally shoes come in at a bargain $595.
