Another Mad Men Moment: Carolyn Jones, model

Once again, watching Mad Men, I was struck with a "hey I know that face ..." during the finale episode, Tomorrowland. This time the face was Carolyn Jones, the fired Topaz pantyhose model.

I know that tight face... those pursed lips. That "I'm a model!" attitude!

It's Cassie (or Cassandra Whitehead, now known as Cassandra Jean), who first became known when she left season 5 of America's Next Top Model because she refused to get her hair cut.   As Tyra said, repeatedly, she wanted Cassie to have Mia Farrow's hair cut from Rose-mary's Bay-bee (pronounced just like that). Despite the opportunity to get the cut done by a very expensive stylist, Cassie refused, wanting to return to pageants. 

Well I guess it's worked well for her. Seriously, 2 minutes on Mad Men? Far more successful than any past ANTM contestant. Right? Nothing else is coming to mind ...
