Everything is coming up Megan! Jessica Pare, the French Canadian actress who plays the new Mrs. Draper on Mad Men Season 5 was recently named one of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Women of 2012.

The honor is a surprising one — not because Jessica isn’t a beauty (no one makes us covet a heavy cat-eye look more) but because she is still a relatively unknown actress. Her quickie marriage to Don was a sudden surprise on Mad Men Season 4 and she is still less well known than the other female leads on the show. And let’s not even get into her confusing, and sometimes infuriating, relationship with Don. In a show with so many fan favorites, Megan has yet to separate herself from the rest of the talented pack.

Meanwhile, Christina Hendricks (Joan) was also named one of the Most Beautiful Women of 2012, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

Either way, congrats to Megan — and Christina — on winning the much-coveted title of one of People’s Most Beautiful! Maybe playing Mrs. Draper will help launch Jessica from a struggling actress to one of Hollywood’s top leading ladies?
