Love It Or Leave It?: January Jones Does Retro Style Better As Betty

I have all sorts of questions about January Jones. Who in the world is her baby daddy? Is she ever going to tell? Is she as bitchy in real life as she is on TV? Is Betty Draper the only character she does well despite her otherwise subpar acting abilities because she’s essentially just playing herself? (All signs point to yes.) And most importantly, above all, is she stylish? I’m ambivalent, because while I generally like her off-duty ensembles, when it comes to the red carpet I find that January shoots for ambitious looks that she can’t quite pull off.

Don’t get me wrong, I love me a fashion risk-taker, but the risks are never quite as impressive when they somehow fall flat. Against my better judgement I’m pretty sure I like what she’s wearing, but with the flipped-out bob, matching pink lipstick, and white eyeliner in the equation, it’s all very retro, and not in a particularly good way. Needless to say, the impeccable Betty Draper would not approve, but what say you?
