WERQ: January Jones in Miu Miu

Posted on March 06, 2013

Oh, how we clapped and laughed at this sight:


‘Mad Men’ star January Jones attends the Miu Miu Fall 2013 show during Paris Fashion Week.

BRAVA, Miss Jones. That is some primo drag. We don’t care if the blouse is pulling a bit; we can’t help but snap our fingers and roll our necks at the sight of a ladystar having this much fun with her fashion. You WERQ that “Corny Collins Show” shit, Miss Lady! RETRO-BITCHFACE SNAPS.

      I give her a WERQ just for smiling. 

      • kschwarting

        Yes!  Who knew she had such a great smile?

      • H2olovngrl

        First thing I was going to write is how nice to see her smiling.

    • thecitysleeps

      I will just LOL.  And I want the purse so badly.

      • http://onionjam.tumblr.com SkipperJane

        I too, love the purse. It reminds me of the Edie purse from J. Crew, which they used to offer in pink (and which costs about $1,000 less). 

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Luving the hair. too bad she’s disappearing in front of that black backdrop.  I wish I could see her jacket better.

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        Let’s limerick her!

        There once was a woman so pale
        She bumped her hair with a can of ale
        She pinked up her lips
        Her blouse pulled at the tits
        As she sashayed in Parisian gales.

        • Little_Olive

          Her blouse pulled at the *uneven* tits? But that’d ruin the verse, sorry. 

          • Derek_anny

             I have studied the image.  The unevenness is an optical illusion promulgated by the fabric.  Her breasts aren’t actually being pulled out of alignment.

    • Leah Cronen

       Of all the snaps to be given, retro-bitchface snaps might be the best.

      • Chickadeep

         Amber Von Tussle lives!

    • Sobaika

      YEEEEEES. Werq it, Jan.

    • charlotte

      Perhaps Janie Bryant gave her some advice?

    • MilaXX

      I think she looks terrible. Fried hair, too small blouse, competing pink bag and round toed Minnie mouse pumps.

      • tereliz

        The only thing I like about this outfit is the smile. 

        • MilaXX

           and upon looking a second time I noticed her knees are ashy.

          • Kirsten Kirsten


          • SpillinTea

            Im glad I’m not the only one who noticed them ashcakes. I didn’t mind the rest of the look, but ashyness just makes my eye twitch and causes an involuntary reach for some Jergens. lol

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Her smile is great, the blouse is visibly pulling,and that takes it out of my personal WERQ category. Sorry.

          • dress_up_doll

            Yeah, I don’t get a WERQ from this look, either. I wouldn’t say she looks terrible, but may now that MilaXX has pointed out her ashy knees, I definitely see a problem.

      • random_poster

        I agree on all counts.

      • ToniMacAttack

        Agree! And is it just me or does it look like she’s trying to channel her TV daughter? That is an outfit I could see Ms. Shipka rocking in a few years. Not JJ.

    • aeb1986

      It’s a sexy Betty Draper!

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I don’t love this, but it’s cute. And just goes to show that the retro look works for her SOOOO much more than the edgier looks she so often attempts. 

    • Nicholas

      Straight out of Mars Attacks!.

    • MaryanneGirl

      It’s maybe not the best sign that I cackled out loud when I opened this (probably not what she was going for), but I will give her props for doing something light-hearted and fun! 

    • marilyn


    • l_c_ann

      The blouse fit is bad, and it need not be.

    • oldbobbydraper

      isn’t it a little cold for shorts?

    • DTLAFamilies


    • Indigo54

      Is that a leather jacket that she has draped over her shoulders?  Why isn’t she wearing it to hide that ugly, ill-fitting shirt?

    • Imasewsure

      Gidget in Paris!! Love this look on her… glad she does every once in a while too!!

    • siriuslover

      I can’t get over the pulling of the blouse. But it’s a funky look otherwise. (and I mean funky in a good way here)

    • Annabelle Archer

      Go on Betty Draper! Go on!!

    • kimmeister

      Love the hair!

    • GorgeousThings

      So funny that you pull out Corny Collins! My kids’ high school is doing Hairspray. My oldest son is Corny, and my youngest son is Link!

      She looks awesome here. The makeup/hair borders on costumey, but what the hell. It’s fun!

    • mightbewrong

      You’re joking, right?

    • Sue_Asponte

      Love the Corny Collins reference. Time to watch Hairspray again… a few more times. James Marsden’s best-ever role.

    • AnaRoW

      I can’t help but think that this would be a lot cuter on Kiernan Shipka.

    • greymain

      the only thing I like is the comment ” retro-bitchface snaps “.

    • Alyssa

      I love the hair, she pulls off the retro hair & makeup so much better than her severe looks. I don’t really care for the outfit, but I’m glad to see a smile!

    • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

      I love it and that SMILE!  Who knew she had it in her?

    • VeryClaire

      She looks just like Sally Draper!

    • EEKstl

      You can tell that SHE is having fun with it, the happiest I’ve seen her on the RC ever – she usually has her edgy fashion Divatrix expression on (meaning, no expression).

    • traceyishere

      This is just bad.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      OH. MY. GOD.

      She’s serving up some “Sally Draper: where is she now” realness and I love her for that.

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      Really?  What exactly did you guys put in those scones? ; )

      The outfit: Not my cup of tea…..Her expression: Fabulous!

    • BrooklynBomber

      but did you point and laugh? Because if ever a look deserved pointing and laughing, this is it.

      • judybrowni

        Okay, I’ll give you the hair, the makeup — and the smile — but since when did a car hop uniform with a tuxedo jacket (!) become high fashion?

        • Sara__B

           All she needs is roller skates!

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      It has a beat, and you can dance to it.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Also,  how does the woman with the tiniest waist in Hollywood look like she has no waist?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=149100065 Virginia McMurdo

      Teen Sally Draper Barbie!

    • j_anson

      Meh, really not my cuppa, but I guess she’s doing it okay.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      The bag takes it down from a WERQ for me. Could they really not have found a bag in a color that in any way complements the rest of the ensembles’s palette? Not crazy about the the outfit either.

    • andreawey

      Bump it!!!

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      January Jones has many fine qualities, but before this ‘fun to hang out with’ was not the impression she gave.  HILARIOUS and a well earned WERQ.

      • charlotte

        I recently watched the THR drama actresses roundtable interview she did last year (it’s on their website), and she actually seems to be a sweet and funny person.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

          Aw, that’s lovely!  To my shame, I only know her (fantastic!) work on Mad Men and her public appearances right here on TLo – I never suspected she had such a cheeky sense of humor about her image!

    • nancymae

      How did she manage ashy knees?? As a brown girl and devoted lotioneer, I am perplexed.

      • MilaXX

         I thought the same thing. I have never seen someone fair skinned accomplish that.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/47S737MGWCAZEZ73QOAFKDFEKQ Jill

      She looks….happy….WTF??

    • Janet B

      I want that purse.

    • sagecreek

      A WERQ for a badly-fitted blouse?

    • teensmom99

      Is it any wonder that JJ looks her best when she is not trying too hard to be the polar opposite of Betty Draper Francis?

    • lrober03

      It’s only a WERQ because she’s basically Betty.  

    • Dagney

      She looks like she is having a blast sporting a slightly goofy, “done-up,” kind of look.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000088447181 Sam Smith

      Hair, makeup and purse – Yes.  The rest is a no for me.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001998855370 Fatima Siddique

      January Jones doing Betty Draper college days drag? Kind of surreal. 

    • http://twitter.com/amndad amanda lynn

      ‘atta girl!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1531695734 Melinda Mary

      WERQ, loving this.

    • http://twitter.com/ZumaZoum Eric

      The thumbnail looked godawful, and it only got worse upon opening the page.  What is in your guys’ coffee this morning?

    • jw_ny

      Really the only thing I like about this is that she went full out for this look, and is having fun with it.  I wish more celebs had her IDGAF attitude.  Not particularly crazy about any of the individual pieces, hair, makeup, etc., tho.

    • http://twitter.com/kendallbrunson SassyMcFrench

      Sorry TLo. Not feeling this. Shirt is too tight, and she’s wearing a jacket even though she’s sporting shorts and bare legs. I’m confused. The purse is adorable!

    • http://www.facebook.com/D.D.D.Dino Dino Bonačić

      what’S with u TLo?! THIS?! A WERQ?!

    • Trisha26

      The only explanation for me is that she just doesn’t give a F—.

    • Pannyx

      Wow, she just looks terrible to me. Ugh. Nice to see a smile, but that doesn’t get a Werq from me.

    • formerlyAnon

      Judgement suspended till I get to a better monitor where I can actually see the black jacket draped over her shoulders.

      As it appears on this monitor, all I can see is a matronly bosom in a too-small blouse floating in a sea of black.

      • formerlyAnon

        Ok. I have seen the jacket better. It performs no miracles.  You guys say Corny Collins, I say guest hostess on PeeWee’s Playhouse. Fun, yes, but not a WERQ. Unless we’re grading on a curve.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1266410766 Phyllis Craine

      Are you being ironic? You can’t be serious….

    • http://www.facebook.com/AntoniaDonnelly Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      Not a work for me, that blouse is plain sloppy looking.

    • decormaven

      Her facial skin is glowing! Too bad she didn’t get a body scrub as well to take care of the ashy knees. She looks healthy & happy, and that pink purse is a nice pop of color.

    • Judy_J

      I guess I’m not seeing what you see.  She looks awful!  That blouse is not only too small, it’s ugly as sin.  Her hair is cute, I guess, but that’s about it.

    • Anniebet

      Oh dear. I like the retro hair, and am overjoyed those bushy eyebrows aren’t darker. I hate, HATE that trend.

    • sekushinonyanko

      How cute does she look with Megan’s hair?

    • unbornfawn

      Nope. Shorts. The buttons pulling on the blouse. The hair and smile are not enough to make this a WERQ.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

      Her blouse is pulling because she has her hand at her hip, which we can’t see because her black jacket is blending in with the background.

      She looks fine, she’s not at an awards show. 

    • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

      Step away from the scones.

    • margaret meyers

      She looks like the craziest girl in high school.  It’s radiating off her.

    • Zippypie

      I thought this had to be a joke WERQ.  And I scrolled.  And there was nothing.  Okie dokie.

    • bertkeeter

      At first I thought it was my sister’s yearbook in 1969…the light shining off her forehead tricked me!

    • http://twitter.com/dollsaga Dollsaga

      the blouse is from her pre-teen years,  its no longer fit. the jacket is borrowed from her husband, only the shorts look like a new purchase. great smile, perfect legs, the outfits ruin them all.

    • JauntyJohn

      I don’t believe I have ever seen a more authentic expression of happiness on her face.
      And with that said, I think this outfit is outstanding — because if your clothes bring you sincere joy then you sure as hell are doing something right, wardrobe-wise.

    • lrhoff

      She looks ridiculous.  Please, boys…..

    • pdquick

      Hot pants? Woke-up-dead makeup? Sorry, no.

    • cleep1000

      Ya’ll are nuts. She looks ridiculous.

    • kathrineb

      WERQ indeed! I love this too! January looks great here!

    • golden_years

      She looks cute. She obviously enjoys having fun with fashion.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

      Oh my God, I freaking love this.

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      I want that bag. Badly.

    • libraangel

      Sandra Dee plus 1950’s waiter at McDonalds plus Boy Scout shorts = Hot mess

    • KittieLynnNYC

      Is she in costume for “Mad Men” or something? ROFL for the ‘Corny Collins’ reference!
