Was Christina Hendricks Photoshopped in London Fog Ads?

We know the name London Fog is nonsense because Lane explained there is no fog in London during last season's 'Mad Men.' Who says TV turns your brain to mush?

A Japanese woodcut titled, "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife."

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Don has returned to Betty, the baby's on the way, but all's not right in Don's world. There's turmoil in the office and a current of unrest thanks to the British takeover of Sterling Cooper.

But if you hoped, or believed, that Don's sojourn to Los Angeles and his contemplation of another life was a wake-up call, think again. Don Draper remains Dick Whitman. A leopard doesn't change his spots.
