We are working so hard to like this, you guys. And we’re really not sure why.
January Jones attends the season 7 premiere of “Mad Men” at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood, California in a Roksanda Ilincic black and blue dress paired with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

Is it because it’s unexpected? That it works a much softer look than we’re used to seeing from her? Maybe, but the problem is, we haven’t yet convinced ourselves. All the elements are there, but we’re not sure the overall look works. We do like that dress, though; bold and graphically interesting with just the right amount of frippery to take it in an unexpected direction. But as much as we appreciate that flounce on the skirt, it’s too big and too long. In fact, we wish the hem was higher and that she wasn’t wearing naked shoes. Also: the belt. That’s gotta go. Looks cool on the runway but painful on her.
As for the Ellie Mae hair, we actually dig it a little, but we don’t think it goes with this dress at all. And the eyeshadow looks like she licked a piece of candy from her Easter basket and used it as play makeup.
C’mon. You did that as a kid, even if it wasn’t Easter candy. Admit it.
