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.

    • 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). 

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • 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!!!

  • 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.

      • 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.

  • 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.  

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

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

  • ‘atta girl!!

  • WERQ, loving this.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Dot

    Oh my God, I freaking love this.

  • 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!
