January Jones at LAX

Posted on May 10, 2013

January is here to provide us all an important lesson about the value of the Epic Bitchface.


‘Mad Men’ star January Jones seen at LAX Airport in a blue and red striped top with blue jeans.

It’s very simple, darlings. Why else would she be featured on a fashion blog when she’s dressed like a Saturday morning trip to the Home Depot? Epic. Bitchface. It NEVER goes out of style. It’s the haute couture of facial expressions.

      It’s that “get those effing cameras out of my way” face.

      • l_c_ann

        Photoshop her out of the picture and have paps taking pictures of other paps.

        • mightbewrong

          I imagine this turns them to stone.

      • MissAmynae

        she probably really, really has to pee also. Long flight, icky plane bathrooms? no bueno!

        I think she looks adorable, and comfortable for a long plane ride.

      Plus, what an awesome sweater. I can’t really do wide horizontal stripes, but I wish I could!

      • Spicytomato1

        Yes, I think she looks refreshingly wholesome and preppy in a good way. My only quibble is the holes in the jeans….although I guess I should blame the industry on that. I recently tried to buy new jeans at the Gap and couldn’t find a single pair in the cut/wash that I liked without those exact same type of holes. Grr.

      • lilazander

        The sweater is awesome, but those pants aren’t good for anybody, unless you’re 10ish or less.

    • SewingSiren

      I wonder if she has a nervous habit of rubbing her palms on her thighs when ever she wants a cigarette or a doughnut.

      The colors in that sweater are super cute together.

    • thecitysleeps

      Those shoes are the worst, but that sweater alone deserves a post, tlo. The bitchface is just a bonus!

    • C. C. Winslow

      I *wish* I looked that good when I go to Home Depot.

    • MilaXX

      cute sweater.

    • http://www.facebook.com/agatha.guilluame.7 Agatha Guilluame

      Is that an ankle length bootcut jean with flats? YIKES!

        My thoughts exactly.

      • tereliz

        Double yikes.

      • RebeccaKW

        Yea, I was thinking ‘Flared pedal pushers? No!!!”

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        She is no Mrs. Mia Wallace. Now had they been black…

    • http://twitter.com/epenthesis Mike B.

      That’s indeed an awesome sweater on her. The jeans kind of go past “weathered” into “decrepit,” but it’s not fatal. I wish I looked that good at Home Depot.

    • Tatiana Luján

      with good jeans, this could have been a much better look.

      What exactly about this is ‘bitchface’? Do women have to smile all the time in order not to be classified as bitches? All I see is a woman calmly walking through an airport.

      • Amelia

        Me too. To me her face here is what human faces look like when their facial muscles are relaxed.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        A) This post is not about “women,” let alone how women are supposed to act “all the time.”

        B) She is not being classified as a bitch.

      • Qitkat

        I knew a boy in 9th grade who was always asking me why I wasn’t smiling, or telling me to “smile, it’s not that bad.” It annoyed the hell out of me. I was just shy. My take on *bitchface* is that JJ rarely smiles for the camera unless she’s caught off guard, in which case she has a lovely smile, and that her character Betty doesn’t seem to have much pleasure in her life, and looks stoney-faced much of the time.
        *Bitchface* is meant to be a joke, imo.

        • Min

          Fair enough. I guess I’m just sensitive about this having had similar experiences with boys (and men) like the one you described. I do get that it’s a joke.

      • mightbewrong

        I just think of it as a confident, eyes-forward, ‘don’t mess with me’ look. It’s really not that complicated.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=677547537 John Hodgins

      Does she ever get tired of looking like that? Man, must be rough to always be so cranky. (I know she probably isn’t in real life, but if that’s all we see in pics…).

    • tereliz

      I’d have a well-cultivated bitch-face if people followed me around trying to shoot me…

    • mightbewrong

      Bitchface cannot distract from those jeans.

    • ashtangajunkie

      The bitchface is so very good. I am coveting that sweater.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I’d have bitch face if I had just pulled my boot cut jeans out of a paper shredder as well.

    • EdithP

      I wonder if she’s ever considered bangs.

    • anotherkate

      She gives exactly zero fucks. I love it.

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

      She’s featured because whatever she wears, girl is a street photo starlet. She always puts on a show.

    • 3boysful

      Love the lip color.

    • hellkell

      I think I own those shoes.

    • Joeyanna

      Great lip gloss color, though. But I was surprised she was wearing a claw clip in her hair. To me, that is for in-house/early morning dog walk only, like scrunchies and sweat pants.

      • charlotte

        I think it is okay on a cross-country flight as well.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

        What she’s wearing pretty much is scrunchies and sweatpants. I give her major credit for having lipstick on, given that she’s at an airport.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        I mean no disrespect, but I am so tickled at the existence of a personal perception where such a standard exists.
        I imagine your world to be much more glamorous than mine. If I remember to grab a claw clip for my inevitable need to put up my hair, I feel practically fancy. Then again, I currently have an unsharpened pencil holding my hasty bun.

    • Deb_Lynn

      You guys, I think she stole my jeans. I’m five feet tall.

      • understateddiva

        me too!! I used to buy “cropped” jeans when that was a Thing, because they were the right length!

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      “Bitchface. It NEVER goes out of style. ” Words to live by.

    • RussellH88

      I’d want that sweater if I didn’t have “Waiting for mommy to give me a bowl cut” hair that makes me look like a little kid.

    • lobsterlen

      I going right now to the mirror to practice my airport bitch face.

    • PrunellaV

      That is some wonderfully shitty-looking hair. Keepin’ it real!

      On the chance that someone hasn’t posted it every time Ms. Jones and her bitchface appear, do check out “bitchy resting face” at funnyordie.com. “Do you know someone with a bitchy face?”

      Hi Jan. Time to peruse Pinterest for some quick “cute” hairdid ideas.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pamela.hunt.796 Pamela Hunt

      January, if you keep looking that way, your face will stay like that. Oops, too late! (And I bet those sad-ass jeans cost as much as my mortgage payment.)

    • Lilithcat

      The scary part is that she probably paid a fortune for jeans a homeless person would reject as too ratty.

    • sagecreek

      Ah, the unfairness of life. In that outfit I’d look like a homeless person, bitchface or no :(

    • frannyprof

      She looks really cute! Love the sweater and cropped jeans and ballet flats. I would wear that outfit, but, alas, it would look so much different/worse on me.

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      January is thinking, “Maybe if I look like a bitch, the cameras won’t notice that I look like a slob.
      I can tolerate the clothes. But her hair needs awashin’. If she pulled it back, instead of puffing it up, her hair wouldn’t be so bad. Her legs look super short in these photos.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1367753169 Margo Anderson

      That sweater? Total Freddy Krueger.

    • pattycap11

      she looks good in whatever she wears; love the sweater.

      For a minute I didn’t even know who she was…Dayum.
