Mary Katrantzou is a designer who takes a lot of risks, and they often pay off. But in the case of this bizarre printed frock-cum-apron worn by January Jones at a screening of “La Revolucion Bleue,” well, the risks certainly didn’t pay off. As Coco Chanel once famously pointed out, before you leave the house, it’s always good to remove at least one accessory. This dress is like 47 accessories too many. Next time, January.
Well, for those of us wondering how Matthew Weiner would work in and/or conceal January Jones’ pregnancy on the new season of “Mad Men,” last night we got our answer. Betty is fat now! I won’t reveal anything else about last night’s episode, but I will show you some photos. I am glad to see the makeup team from “Shallow Hal” has a new gig. One more, after the jump! Keep reading »
Let’s face it: January Jones probably looks just as good in fleece sweatpants as she does decked out in a ball gown. Her enviable facial features — those eyes! Those cheekbones! — also happen to make the perfect showcase for just about any makeup look, so when I say I don’t know if this one quite works, I don’t mean it doesn’t look good. I love a hit of lavender on the lids or in the crease of the eye, but does it really make a statement when it’s smoked out into a subtle wing? With no liner, the look lacks punch, and combined with the sweet pink lipstick, this face has little impact for me. To make it more striking, I would have added black liquid liner and gone nude on the lips. What do you think? Would you wear January’s soft, sweeping lavender shadow, or do you prefer a more defined look? [via BellaSugar]
January Jones has a tip for staving off exhaustion as new “mum” — placenta pills. The “Mad Men” star told People about her slightly unorthodox health regimen:
“I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas and with placenta capsulation … Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re only the only mammals who don’t ingest out own placentas … It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all mums!”
Hey, if it works, why not? I guess it would swallow some placenta if it gave me the energy I needed to exist on very little sleep. The only thing I’m bothered by is January’s use of the word “mum.” Have her placenta pills made her British? Also, can she please tell us who Xander’s daddy is already?
