Jessica Paré: Heels make me feel organised

Jessica Paré

Jessica Paré has now learned to "embrace" her height.

The Mad Men actress always dresses to impress when on the red carpet of A-list events.

Because of her height Jessica admits she previously avoided wearing shoes that elevate her even more. However, she now can't live without certain pairs of her favourite heels.

"I feel like I have my sh*t together when I wear high heels. The more chaotic my life gets, the higher I go," she laughed to the April issue of Marie Claire. "I used to hate wearing them because, at 5ft 8in, I felt huge, but now I embrace my height. I'm not sure I would function without my Lanvin wedges."

It isn't just her shoes Jessica focuses on. With her role in the '60s-set TV show comes lots of classic beauty trends.

"Right now, my nails are a bright colour for work. My character, Megan, loves her nail polish," Jessica explained. "When I'm off duty I wear either a great neutral, like OPI's Samoan Sand, or a deep, dark berry colour."

Another thing Jessica likes to do while she's off duty is party. The 33-year-old star turns to two certain people to help get her in the mood when she wants to go out.

"When I want to party, I call January Jones or Jason Wu. They're both so much fun to be around, and I'm obsessed with Jason's designs," she exclaimed. "I'm also planning to buy something from Erdem's SS14 collection. The pieces are so pretty and luxurious, yet totally wearable."

To show how comfortable she is in her own skin Jessica admits she enjoys taking regular 'selfies' - a self-taken portrait.

"I have no problem with selfies. Instagram is like a creative edit of my life, so I always try to take aesthetically pleasing pictures of what I'm up to," she mused. "I post in sprees - I'll do none for weeks, then six in a day. I just pressed the heart button on a bunch of Lena Dunham's pictures, too."
