"Mad Men": Jessica Paré In "Fashion"

Sneak Peek "Mad Men" actress Jessica Paré, covering the Spring 2014 issue of "Fashion" magazine, photographed by Gabor Jurina and Zeina Esmail:

"I’m a huge Marlene Dietrich fan," said Paré. "She’s got this raunchy kind of strength. It would be hard to find a man who could come up with something hard for her to handle. She’s seen it all and done it all. I read her biography as a kid and it stayed with me since..."

Paré landed her first film role in the TV movie "Bonanno: A Godfather's Story", followed by small parts in the TV series "Big Wolf on Campus" and the French film "En Vacances" (1999).

After auditioning for a bit part in the indie feature "Stardom" (2000), Paré was cast by director Denys Arcand  to star in the film, followed by starring roles in "Lost and Delirious" (2001) and TV mini-series "Random Passage" (2002).

Her notable feature film work includes "Wicker Park" (2004), "Lives of the Saints" (2004), "Protect and Serve" (2007), "Jusqu'à toi" (2007), "The Trotsky" (2008), "Suck" (2008), "Red Coat Justice" (2009) and "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010).

Paré's breakout role was in "Mad Men", playing 'Megan Calvet', a secretary at ad agency 'Sterling Cooper'.

After an affair, the character became the second wife of 'Don Draper' (Jon Hamm), dancing and singing a cover version of the 1960's pop song "Zou Bisou Bisou'.
