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?
January Jones, man. She’s so pretty, and so mysterious — with her son Xander, the father of whom is anyone’s guess (looking at you, Jason Sudeikis). [I still think it’s Michael Fassbender. — Editor] And okay, so she’s not the best actress in the world, but we could look at her for days. Here she is, early Monday in Malibu, out with her kid just going for a lil’ meeting or something, and doesn’t she look fab? We’d never normally recommend gray striped sweatpants, but somehow January can pull them off. Which is why we’ve decided to offer you a (slightly modified) version of her casual Monday look.

I hate short hair on myself, and out of my own bob-induced fear I usually feel pretty meh about it on others, but there are definitely some ladies who can wear the hell out of the big chop. Take Michelle Williams, for instance — her pixie cut not only channels the influential Vidal Sassoon style worn by Mia Farrow in “Rosemary’s Baby,” but it also perfectly offsets Michelle’s girlish features to lend her a more mature vibe. It’s a big deal when a long-locked starlet goes short, so it’s only natural that Jessica Chastain made gossip-world waves this week when she debuted her fresh asymmetrical cut in New York City.
For my part, I think she’s absolutely killing this look. It’s infinitely more adventurous than the “Tree of Life” star’s standard pretty-but-conventional mermaid waves, and it frames her face beautifully while still giving her the touch of edge she was overdue for. The blunt style actually reminds me of another actress’s haircut — January Jones (who has since gone back the way of extensions) rocked a similar severe side-part earlier this summer, and while hers was choppier and closer to the shoulders, it’s bound to draw comparisons nonetheless. Who do you think wears the look better? (And more importantly, in light of Jessica’s major cut and January’s long red extensions, do you think there could be a case of identity thievery at hand?)
How ridiculously cute is January Jones’ little nugget Xander? I hope my future babies are as agreeable about spending the afternoon shopping. Also, is it wrong that every time I see a picture of Xander I can’t help but study his face for signs of who his mysterious father might be? Right now I’m getting a very Alfred Hitchcock vibe. Must be the bald-ish head and chubby cheeks. [Photos: WENN]
January Jones is well known for her icy blonde locks — they’re the calling card of her “Mad Men” character Betty Draper. But just today, January was spotted sporting a head full of red hair — with long red extensions, even. Is she trying to cut in on Christina Hendricks’ trademark look? What do you think of her new red look?
And while we’re here, let’s play a little game. With red hair all the rage in Hollywood — from Christina Hendricks to Julianne Moore to Lindsay Lohan — would you be surprised to learn that many of these famous manes came from a bottle? Keep clicking through this slideshow and see if you can guess whether each star’s carrot top is for real — or totally fake.
Art may be imitating life on the set of “Mad Men.” According to Star magazine, January Jones has an issue with Jessica Pare. “January is furious because she pretty much had no story line this season, not to mention that she had to wear a fat suit!” a source told Star. “Meanwhile, Jessica is an overnight sensation. … January is so completely jealous that she has been treating Jessica like complete crap.” If this is indeed true (and I have no trouble imagining it could be), it explains why they only had one scene together this season. No wonder it was so uncomfortable to watch — it was real. Well … maybe. [Celebitchy]
