HAMM ON FASHION AND MORE: Fresh from taping an appearance at “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” a slightly anxious-looking Jon Hamm made his way into De Santos on Wednesday evening and darted for the bar. Gripping a tumbler of bourbon, the “Mad Men” star, who plays the seemingly imperturbable Don Draper on the AMC drama, was ready to switch gears from TV talk-show guest to guest of honor at a small dinner arranged by Details magazine. Hamm appears on the October cover. “You never really get used to the photo shoots, they can be really awkward,” he said. “But I do love fashion. Tom Ford is incredible. I’m wearing a Giorgio Armani suit. He’s been very supportive.” At dinner, Hamm was introduced to Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos, and the actor surprised the designers when he mentioned he was a fan of their work. “Well, e-mail me…we have connections and can, like, send you stuff!” said Shipley. Also at the dinner: Hamm’s girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt, Thom Browne, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville from Rag & Bone, Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig from “Saturday Night Live” and Jack McBrayer from “30 Rock.” In this crowd, Hamm had no trouble talking fashion, but he also clearly doesn’t have front-row ambitions. “I’ll leave it to the women to get their jollies.”
