January Jones in an Ulyana Sergeenko jumpsuit at the Emmys: stunning?

wenn22910270

For real question: why does January Jones look so bow-legged in these photos? And why does this shade of green not translate well in still photos? When January walked onto the Emmys red carpet last night, the green popped. It looked rich. It looked amazing. But in these photos, it seems sort of flat! Ugh. And I totally thought she was wearing a full gown, not a jumpsuit, but here we are. The jumpsuit is by Ulyana Sergeenko. I’m going to make the leap and say that this works, her styling is on-point and her Resting Bitchface is life-affirming. I guess the explanation for the bow-legged look is that she’s standing with her legs too far apart and the fabric drapes in a weird way. I also have to say: with her hair like this, she really does give me Grace Kelly vibes.

God, I just love her RBF. It’s amazing.

January happily posed with Elisabeth Moss on the red carpet, one last Mad Men reunion. Both women decided to go for some bold colors, although I think Moss didn’t even come close to pulling off this Oscar de la Renta dress. She’s cute, she’s talented as hell, but she might need to make her peace with the fact that she’s not a Fashion Girl. And that’s fine! She doesn’t need to be a Fashion Girl. But that means… no fuchsia princess dresses. No matching lipstick. Just… NO.

    Um they BOTH Look amazing, elizabeth more so actually!

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      That prom Queen dress is horrible on Elizabeth. IMO

    • mimif says:

      That jumpsuit is f-cking amazing on the ice queen.

      • Sullivan says:

        Right? January looks great.

      • OverFirstAve. says:

        Yes January does look great.

        She owns it .

      • Carol says:

        Love..Love;…Love…it! But sometimes it kind of reminded me of Gumby. But still love it.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        Her butt is !!!! in the last picture. I need her trainer!

      • kibbles says:

        I’ve grown to like January and her RBF. I don’t usually go for her body type (I root for curvier women like Christina Hendricks, Amy Schumer, Mindy Kaling, Kat Dennings, etc.) but January looks beautiful here. I love her fashion, her hair, her skin, her RBF, and her occasional smile. She’s confident and I like that she seems to have a good relationship with her female costars.

    • Kitten says:

      I don’t hate her dress, only her hair color.

      Seriously, that shade of blonde is so freakin harsh on her.

    • Loulou says:

      I actually think Moss looks pretty adorable.

    • sarah says:

      I dig what Moss was going for, but the bust is throwing the tailoring off. I actually like the “washed out” look with a bright lip & dress, i also LOVE Elizabeth Moss so i’m biased, lol.
      What is the bow-legged thing? I don’t think i would notice that, or not notice it? Why is it bad? January looks great but the brooch ages the jumpsuit.

    • bella says:

      jj does look spectacular.
      natural and fashion hit simultaneously.
      her RBF is amazing and i’ve always noted the grace kelly vibe.
      i too thought this was a gown on the carpet.
      as for the bow-legs – she’s got them, although the jumpsuit and her legs being so far apart make them more obvious.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Right? No lies detected here.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    It’s a little Star Trek for me, but she looks good in the color.

  3. Matador says:

    Elisabeth has both awful boob molds *and* horrible boob darts? Ugh.

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      I guess Elizabeth is going to be blonde now? She said in one interview, that she was always blonde prior to Mad men. I saw some old CSI or Medium and she did have blonde hair. I think I like her with darker hair though.
      Prom dress she is wearing is bad.

  4. OverFirstAve. says:

    I may be in the minority but I Loved January Jones jumpsuit. I thought she looked great.

    I HATED Elizabeth Moss pink prom dress.

    • Esmom says:

      Agree about JJ. And her hair and makeup is the best I’ve seen in a long time.

      I think if Elisabeth’s dress was a narrow column it would have been ok. The bodice looks good on her.

    • tracking says:

      Agreed on both counts! Stunning color on January in particular.

    • SamusAran says:

      Agreed! I love that January wears pants at events like these. She looks amazing. Elizabeth…that hair is tragic on her.

  5. vauvert says:

    Don’t like either outfit. Not full on hate, just meh.
    The green is a couple of shades too light – it really should have been a bolder green, and that frilly leftover fabric on her left leg looks terrible. I really wish someone would tailor pants bottoms properly for these ladies. If they drag on the ground, they are too long!! (Pet peeve of mine…) And even on someone with a stunning body, if the fabric is too thin and clingy, you’ll get a weird hip bump.
    I wouldn’t mind the fuchsia colour at all, but the strapless style really has become over used, and on most women it looks like they have a fat roll where the fabric ends, no matter how slim and toned they are. It’s just how our bodies are made, and I wish their stylists would look at them from all angles before sending their clients down the RC like that.

  6. Veronica says:

    January looks amazing. Elizabeth looks one sash away from Prom Queen.

  7. Jayna says:

    The boob part is horrible. Her face is so fresh and pretty.

  8. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    Eh. I don’t care for either. It looks like they’re in a catalog or a pageant in the 1980s. I kinda always got the impression that January thought she was Helen of Troy when really she’s about as good-looking as the prom queen at any old school in flyover country….and with a triangular nose.

  9. Talie says:

    I just think ODLR would be horrified if he was alive to see that dress…it looks like Vegas Barbie Bride.

    January does her own thing. I wish she went a bit weirder, but this works. Ulyana is very hot right now, so it was a smart sartorial choice.

  10. GlimmerBunny says:

    JJ is the ghost of Grace Kelly. So stunningly beautiful but at the same time so cold/bitchy looking. God, I miss Mad Men already.

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      Me too, I loved her as Betty, she was so cold. Lol except when getting it on w Don, it was either hot sex or hot angry sex.. :)

  11. Longhairdontcare says:

    I love JJ! I miss Betty!! I think she looks fab. Shes got this weird style that works so well for her especially bc i could see her doing full on blonde glam barbie i appreciate it more. Elisabeth Moss is a scientologist so No. Not cool

  12. Mar says:

    January has one of the best looks last night hands down

  13. Seraphina says:

    I’m hoping this evening is not setting the precedence for the next few award shows as we go into fall and winter.

  14. Brooke says:

    did January pose with Will Forte? Weren’t they rumoured to be hooking up?

    • lila fowler says:

      Really? Another of her directors?

    • Talie says:

      According to US Weekly this morning — she and Hamm were attached at the hip all night.

      • OverFirstAve. says:

        Yes someone on Twitter said she and Hamm were laughing and having fun all night.

        I’d love for them to hook up , Just to see a Don and Betty reunion. Lol

      • GlimmerBunny says:

        I would love that! I’m a huge Don/Betty shipper.
        Birdie <3

    • lucy2 says:

      Saw a report this morning she and Will split up. Always a risk when dating a co-worker! Wonder if she will remain on the show.

      That jumpsuit is AMAZING on her. Bold and different and eye catching.
      I don’t mind Elisabeth’s dress, but I think it’s wearing her more than she’s wearing it.

  15. lower-case deb says:

    Elizabeth’s dress is like the High School Prom version of Natalie Portman’s great Lanvin gown from the Golden Globes in 2012 (the one with the side bustle and/or armrest).

  16. Liberty says:

    to me, JJ suddenly looks like Ellen Barkin in that top photo, re her awesome RBF/”in charge of all the things” expression.

  17. Cinderella says:

    The jumpsuit looked fabulous from behind. The front just wasn’t right for her. Elisabeth’s hair is a mess and wrecked her look.

  18. Eleonor says:

    Elizabeth Moss hair’s colour. NO.

  19. Michelle says:

    I loved JJ’s pantsuit. It really worked for her. I think that she goes against the norm in most of these awards shows. She has always come across to me as a girl you don’t want to f*ck with. She could teach lessons on that RBF. I love it!

  20. Saywhatwhen says:

    Jones looks on point. Brilliant and effective styling went down there.

  21. Crumpet says:

    Yeah, her RBF is a little hard to get past. I just can’t like her.

  22. waitwhat says:

    January looks stunning in jewel tones and the refund works for her….it’s that awful middle part that killed the look for me. It hallows her eyes and looks too causal.
    Elizabeth looks pretty.

  23. taxi says:

    January looked good. She usually dresses well. Elizabeth’s hair is too light & that dress was made for waltzing, not sitting in theater seats. Color isn’t great on her either.

    • captain says:

      And lipstick is too much as well. And the hair style is wrong for this dress too, not only the colour. If you fix all these, the pink could be great on her, imo.

  24. BRE says:

    Everyone seems to look crappy this year because of that FOX off-white background (with natural light). Just didn’t flatter anyone!

  25. captain says:

    Elizabeth looks like Baby Spice ))

  26. Faithmobile says:

    It’s hard to balance an exposure with extreme light and dark, photographers default to exposing for the fleshtone not the fabric of the outfit. JJ as very pale skin, in the shot with moss the exposure is darker, the dress looks better and her skin tone looks too dark.

  27. cakecakecake says:

    I love January’s look, chic and not too fussy.
    Miss Moss, she looks darling, I would not have chosen it but she kinda pulls it off.

    I am just really noticing how gorgeous her eyes are

  28. Pumpkin Pie says:

    I love the jumpsuit – ok, maybe not the bust-cut – sorry this sounds weird, too round. But in all, I love it. Not the hair, she seems to have the same hair cut all the time. Could maybe try more length and volume?

  29. WinnieCoopersMom says:

    I think Moss would look amazing as a ginger. Her skin tone would be great with a Julianne Moore-type tone. That blonde is terrible on her. And she needs a new stylist. That dress and lipstick combo is horrid.

  30. Molly says:

    I was feeling like the neckline was too Jessica Rabbit, but the Gumby comments have overtaken that view. Now Gumby is all I can think of. Somehow, though, January makes it work. Elizabeth looks lovely except for that hair. Ugh.

  31. belle de jour says:

    Well, I absolutely loathe everything about that wretched jumpsuit… what a sorry mish-mash of misplaced style and construction elements… all in a hideous, unflattering color. And I can’t get past all the awful, unflattering color clash of hair, lips and iridescent disaster hot pink prom gown, either. Don’t find any of it modern, chic or even interesting.

    Meh. I just don’t see or feel any of the good that lots of folks here do, I guess.

  32. Miran says:

    I agree, January looks like Gumby. I see nothing wrong with Elizabeth.

  33. HoustonGrl says:

    OMG. JJ is just so damn beautiful.

  34. amilue says:

    All I see is Gumby. Nothing stunning about that! And I disagree about the styling as well. Her hair and makeup is too underdone for a formal event.
