Some say Elisabeth has pulled a “Miley.”
We say, “No way!” What do you think?
Elisabeth Moss, a.k.a. Mad Woman Peggy Olson, has taken a page out of the ’60s by cutting her hair into a super-short Pixie popularized by Twiggy. For those of you who are too young to know who Twiggy was, take it from us. We wanted to look like her—more for her hair than for the stick thin figure that insired her name. (Back then we didn’t have to worry about being stick thin!)
Many writers are saying that Elisabeth was inspired by Miley Cyrus, who they are now calling a trendsetter. We couldn’t disagree more with the Miley comparison.

Secondly, Elisabeth has more in common with Emma Watson who went super short, pretty and sophisticated two years ago. Thirdly, the Pixie’s perfect for the retro Mad Men (even though Elisabeth is acting coy and saying she will be wearing wigs to make Peggy look the same next season).
