Crista's 1960s-inspired Playboy shoot pays tribute to her TV series, paying homage to the style, dress, makeup, poses and setting of the celebrated era.
"I got there and they had a little area for my wardrobe, and I felt okay when I walked in and saw all the beautiful shoes," Crista said to Playboy in an interview for the magazine.
Playboy decided to recreate two covers from past issues that had been published forty plus years ago. "Mad Men's" funny girl undressed for replications of the magazine's April 1969 cover with Sharon Kristie and for their November 1960 cover with Toni Lacey.
Alongside the eight-page pictorial is an essay titled "It's a Mad World," which was written in the '60s by provocative ad man George Lois. Accompanying the passage are advertisements that had been featured in Playboy issues throughout the decade.
This is Crista's first time undressing for a mass-distributed publication.
"It scared me," the "Mad Men" on-screen dim-wit admitted to Playboy. "[But] I thought it was exciting that something still scared me."
The August issue of Playboy hit newsstands today.
