January Jones has that new X-Men movie coming out and since she gives good face, you can expect to see quite a bit of her staring back at you from the magazine rack. Here she is gracing the cover of Allure, and because it’s Allure, she’s made up impeccably.

Her eyes have a tendency to recede if they’re not made up well. We don’t think they’ve ever looked so big before. Love the hairstyle too.
On Mad Men costumes: “The most challenging part of the wardrobe is actually the period shoes,” she says. But overall, Jones appreciates the restrictive fashions of the era. “The long-line bra with the pointy tips and the girdle, and then the stockings on the garter belt—I really like the shape it gives me. It’s kind of sad when you take the girdle off at the end of the day.”
On the comparison to Grace Kelly: “It’s hard to think I have to live up to that, because I’m not her, unless Grace Kelly drank beer,” she quips.
On dieting: “I have never dieted,” says the actress. “I just listen to whatever my body craves. I don’t deny myself anything. I don’t crave sweets or unhealthy things very often. But when I do, like if I’m in a bad mood and I’m in traffic, I’ll stop at McDonald’s and get a strawberry shake and fries and not feel guilty at all, because I deserve it.”
We usually can’t stand her in interviews but she comes of likable here. Except for the “I can eat whatever I want” line, which is such a cliche. Honestly, that whole Grace Kelly thing is way overplayed. She doesn’t really look anything like her. Made up a certain way in period clothes and hair, she might remind you of her, but there’s no real facial resemblance.
Most of these are behind-the-scenes shots, but she sure does embody that L.A. movie star look to a tee, doesn’t she?
