Hey, remember how we all used to say that January should really stick to the retro Betty Draper styles that suit her and made her famous? Maybe not so much!
January Jones attends The Paley Center for Media Los Angeles 2012 Benefit in West Hollywood, California in Skaist-Taylor.

Not that Betty would ever wear a pair of hot pants, but there’s a definite retro vibe here, and it turns out? She’s not so good at it!
Here to illustrate our maxim that style always comes down to the person as much as it does the garment, here’s Selma Blair, wearing a similar piece a couple of weeks ago and looking completely different in it. Selma rocked it. January? Well, it’s clearly not in her wheelhouse, bless.
That pink is just a bit much on her. We’re happy to be partaking in a moment in red carpet history where we don’t have to complain about lack of color, but the flipside of that is a lot of ladystars wearing colors that don’t help them. January has proven time and time again that she can rock a pink, but this one might just be beyond her pink-rocking capabilities. It doesn’t help that the shape does nothing for her and she paired it with a too-plain and too-neutral pair of shoes. And then there’s her hair and makeup, which look just plain crazy.
Seriously. Look at that closeup. Tell us that’s not crazyface. If elevator doors opened and someone was standing there making that face at you, you’d be all “Uh… I’ll take the next one, thanks.”
