Jon Hamm's style secrets

Jon Hamm's stylist Diana Schmidtke has shared her secrets behind his dapper appearance.

The 43-year-old actor is admired for his chiselled features and dapper ensembles.

Diana Schmidtke helps create his stylish looks, which she describes as "classic, timeless [and] sexy". While she finds him easy to dress, she does have to try and differentiate his taste from that of his Mad Men alter ego.

“You are right! He needs no extra maintenance, he is one of the most handsome men in Hollywood. My biggest challenge is that he looks like Jon Hamm and not [his Mad Men character] Don Draper on the carpet,” she told People. “Mad Men changed fashion and styles including hair for both men and women. So this is something I especially have to take into consideration when working with Jon as I work with Jon Hamm, not Don Draper.”

The grooming expert follows a certain rule when dressing Jon for events, wanting him to look as best as he can. Diana chooses outfits from a certain era to give him a unique look.

"I am ‘old school’ in my approach,” she smiled. “I believe on the red carpet both men and women should look their best and channel old Hollywood and give their fans the glamorous looks we all love to see at an award show or red carpet event... What determines whether or not a guy looks his best has a lot to do with their own inner confidence. A great suit, perfect hair, and beautiful-looking skin are merely accessories.”

It isn't just Jon's clothes Diana takes care of. She also tends to his skin regime and shared some of the products she uses to maintain his good looks.

Listing Aquage Transforming Paste as something she relies on to style his locks, she explained: “This is an important step cause most men go at their hair with their palms - or even worse with stick straight fingers, no spaces between!”

Diana also named Paul Mitchell Systems Awapuhi Wild Ginger hairspray and ReVive moisturiser as hero products.
