January Jones in Santa Monica

Posted on August 24, 2011

For our first trick of the day, we’re going to criticize a pregnant woman for going out in public.

January Jones out and about in Santa Monica.




J Brand 3405 Maternity Straight Leg

Reed Krakoff Gym Top Handle Bag

Oh, come on; you should know us better than that. Of course we’re not going to criticize her. If she’d looked like crap in these pictures we never would have featured them. Instead, she looks pretty damn amazing. Great sandals, great bag, slamming pair of maternity jeans, and a cool, comfortable, sexy top. Mama’s working that shit, doubletime. And in a week when your ten-year-old co-star basically tells the whole world you’re a bitch, that’s when Mama needs to walk with her chin up and her tits out. Haters gonna hate, and Mama doesn’t have time for fake-babies mouthing off. She’s get a real baby to bake at the moment, thank you very much.

      Hah, ok..I was scrolling down wondering what the problem with this look was…thought maybe there’d turn out to be some wacky cut out or iron-on decal or something crazy on the back of the shirt. She looks great.  Love the green bag.

        Me too. I’m thinking – I never looked that good when I was pregnant. What’s the deal? TLo. Those little kidders.

          I was ready to be outraged at TLO – she looks terrific.  I tried to be fashionable while pregnant but I know I never looked that good.

      Well, she does indeed seem “unapproachable,” which makes her a perfect fit for playing Betty, since that’s about the perfect word to describe her as a wife, mom, neighbor.  So, they cast well there at MM.  We’re so starved for that show that we’re contemplating re-watching season 4 from last year.

      Oh, that I should have looked that good pregnant.  Of course, I was unwilling to spend hardly any money on pregnancy clothes, so that may have contributed to my lack of style.

        I may have rewatched ALL OF IT like twice this year, and then I started watching BBC’s The Hour, which sort of filled the Mad Men sized hole in my heart, BUT IT’S ONLY SIX EPISODES. /sob

      Wow–I’m basically wearing all those colors today. White linen shirt (although not as fabulous as hers) and my skirt is the same color as the bag (LOVE that color). I think she looks great. Cool and comfortable. You can’t ask for more while pregnant.

      My favorite part of this whole look?! The hair clip that has been clipped to the handle of her (fabulous!) bag. It’s the exact same thing that I do with mine. Who’da thunk it?! Celebrities are real people, too!

      I love that top, and I love it that it doesn’t seem to have a single wrinkle, despite the fact that it looks like linen with Battenberg lace insets.  Maybe it’s because she’s walking toward the car & has been wearing it for only 10 minutes, standing up…….or maybe it’s “celebrity magic”.  But I love it just the same!

      Wow.  I don’t remember the last time I saw a celebrity look so great while pregnant, and I’m including red carpet appearances.  Gorgeous.  Her hair looks great, too:  no roots for her.  And for not giving a damn about bags, I have to admit, I love that one.

    • Anonymous

      Aw, she looks great! And you know, while I’m not a huge fan of her or her work on MM, working with kids just means you need to be respectful and conscious of some necessary behavior modifications in their presence. It doesn’t not mean that you have to go out of your way to be their best friend. Some people enjoy other people’s children better than others (I myself am typically a fan), but it’s not some kind of requirement. 

    • Anonymous

      OK she looks good. But every angle makes that baby look a little…crooked or something.  Ah, the strip of lace down the front is crooked. 

    • Judy_J

      I’m not a fan of the exposed bra strap (I grew up in the 1960’s and it just wasn’t done), but other than that, she looks great.  I love that green bag!  And that top is beautiful.  There’s just something so sexy about a white blouse paired with blue jeans.

    • Anonymous

      I love heavy cotton white lace. So I think she looks great. I don’t know why she wants to carry a big ol’ diaper bag around  before the baby comes, enjoy your freedom girl, you’ll be lugging diapers and wipes soon enough.

      Loving the bright green bag. She does look cute. She is fortunate to be going through pregnancy when blouses are becoming billowy and drapey again. I was pregnant in the ’90s when the big shirt over leggings look was first happening. What a godsend!

      And let me add to the love fest with a note about the sandals. Perfect summer complement to the look and esp paired with that lacy, light top.

      She looks fab, but ouch! What a comment from little Bobby. Reaffirms my suspicion that she’s not a very good actress, but rather just happened to find a role that suits her extremely well. (I don’t mean that she’s a bitch, necessarily, but rather just a non-emotive person.)

      • Anonymous

        I agree that she’s found a role that suits her but I do think she’s a good actress. At least in the hands of the writers and directors of MM, esp in Season 3 with the Betty finds out about Don drama, she was damned good. She may be a gorgeous ice queen in real life, it might be her midwest (North Dakota, I think) upbringing (but then Steve Zahn is from MN, so that shoots that theory), but I’ll defend JJ’s ability as an actress.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EYYAY25W7VS5BYCOCTK62SSUBI tw125

      She looks great but honestly I feel like the kid’s comments are being blown way out of proportion.  He basically said she was aloof compared to the other cast members. Given that at least one of the other stars he regularly worked with is Jon Hamm, who is as friendly as they come, is anyone really surprised by this?

      • Anna Vasquez

        Yeah, it’s entirely possible she’s just one of those people who doesn’t go around ingratiating herself to children. Sometimes if you don’t want to make faces at them and talk to them in some squeaky happy voice, people think you don’t like kids.

      • MilaXX

        that was my interpretation as well.

      I was not looking that chic when I was pregnant! She looks great, and I love the shades and bag. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3KCDEX4FOTCFHZP6WLKSOOKUVM Danielle

      The top is a bit more exposed than I’d feel comfortable in, but the pants are great – especially since I’m now at 8 months, and I can’t seem to find a decent pair of maternity pants anywhere.

      I was surprised to read what that kid said about her, since in any interviews I’ve read with Kiernan Shipka, she said that she enjoyed working with JJ.

      • margaret meyers

        Ms. Shipka is, for her age, unusually professional about her acting, and she has a couple of years on the actor who plays Bobby.  Her coment track on the DVDs is amazing for someone so young.  I don’t think she needs the kind of attention the younger actor might need from the other actors in a scene. 

        You can’t slam a kid for giving his view when asked — but the adults in the room during that interview should have been looking out for him some.

        I’ve heard from various places that Kiernan and January are really close on set.  JJ looks incredible here.  But is that a gym bag?  What on earth happened to using your spare duffle bag?

      When I was pregnant an (obviously) homeless pregnant girl showed up on the same bus with her “normal” jeans beneath her belly.  Let me tell you that would NOT be comfortable.
