January Jones, big-haired in Prabal Gurung at the SAGs: interesting or just awful?

Do you know that it’s taken me THIS LONG to realize that Christina Hendricks was nowhere to be seen at the Golden Globes? She wasn’t nominated for a Golden Globe or a SAG for Best Supporting Actress for Mad Men, which is crime because last season her storyline on Mad Men was amazing and thought-provoking and she killed it. Christina was nominated this year as part of the Mad Men ensemble, but even then she didn’t come out. Now I know what was missing the past few weeks – Hendricks tatas! I miss them. Where art thou, Titsy McGinge?

Anyway, these photos are of the Mad Men cast members who did make it to the SAGs. Let’s begin with the mess that is January Jones. Her dress is Prabal Gurung, a designer that I don’t have a really strong opinion on either way, but this is maybe the worst, the cheapest-looking Gurung dress I’ve ever seen. It’s just poorly designed in total. And January did the dress NO favors with her dystopian hair and her too-heavy makeup. YIKES.

Elisabeth Moss in a subdued and cute Dolce & Gabbana. I like it because she’s not trying to “win” the red carpet, and because she kept it simple. She looks adorable.

Jon Hamm and his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt. I hope this doesn’t offend the faithful but JESUS H!!!!! Her face is ten kinds of crazy. She looks like she’s trying to morph into Renee Zellweger, right? I swear, the state of Jennifer Westfeldt makes me like Jon Hamm less.

Vincent Kartheiser and his girlfriend, the Lady Lazarus, Alexis Bleidel. He looks old (right?) and she looks like Emily Deschanel. Still, I love that they’re a couple now.

I’m trying not to be a full-on Jessica Pare-hater. It’s not her fault that Megan Draper sucks so hard. But good God! The closeup of just her face startled me. From a distance, in the full-length photo, she looks okay in the green Jason Wu though. It’s not a great dress, but I do like the color.

    All I can think is Ziggy Stardust for January and Morticia Adams for the last lady.

  2. Post-Its says:

    That close-up of Jessica Pare… o_O

    And she might be a nice person, but I hate Megan so much that I feel that same hatred every time I see Jessica Pare.

  3. Micah says:

    What the hell is she wearing?

    I can’t help but think the look resembles an infant wearing a bib.

  4. LadyJane says:

    I liked her look. She pulled it off. She looked different from the run-of-the-mill sparkly flesh-coloured mermaid with wavy beach/old Hollywood hair. I like that she mixes it up. Bravo.

  5. Launicaangelina says:

    Yikes! That close up of Jessica Paré is SCARY. I love the simplicity of Elizabeth Moss’ look. Okay, I’ve always kind of “defended” Jennifer Westfeldt’s face because its naturally quirky looking but I can really see the tweaking. 0_o

  6. Snowpea says:

    You know what I’ll never understand? Here in Australia, our hair colourists do really really natural looking blonde colouring.

    I am yet to see an American girl with a decent, beachy blonde going on. January’s and Hamm’s missus’s blonde is just so BRASSY. Hideous. Do they all buy a ten buck Clairol from the supermarket and do it themselves?

    SOMEBODY please explain!

    • Emma says:

      Don’t overstate it love. I see plenty of trashy white bleach blonde round Sydney!
      Most celebrities seem to get all their hair dyed whereas regular women would more likely get blonde foils, resulting in the natural variation that us natural blondes are prone to,

    • Dani says:

      I am blonde and I have to stay away from any warm tones as they all turn brassy or red on me. I can only use cool tones. Wonder if it isn’t the same with some of these ladies. Just a thought.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Go look at the former Mrs. Russell Crowe and tell me all Aussie blonds look natural and have depth to their hair color.

      Yeah no. She looks like a member of a hair metal band.

      Here in LA, real women of a certain income or of a certain credit card limit have great natural looking highlights. They either have them painted on or use foils or both.

      My guess is Jon Hamm’s girl is a natural very dark brunette. There is only so much one can do when someone wants to totally change her hair color. Natural dark brunettes as blonds usually end up brassy and natural blonds/redheads going too dark end up looking goth.

  7. Apsutter says:

    Can’t wait for mad men to come back!!!!!!!!!

    That said, January looks awful. Elizabeth looks perfect, She may be the only Scieno I can stomach. Hamm doesn’t look great in these photos. And Jessica’s close up is just awful but I like the long shot of her.

    Side note- Jennifer W looks exactly like that episode of Family Guy where they are making fun of Renee Zellweger not being leading lady material and should stick to being the cute best friend.

  8. GiGi says:

    I love Jon Hamm’s expression in all the photos – he’s all, “what the hell is wrong with this chick” just like the rest of us, lol!

    I feel a breakup for these two in 2013. They’ve been together a long time – I think it’s one of those things where she’s like family at this point and since his parents passed when he was young – that can just become a thing, you know. But that face! I just couldn’t with that face.

  9. LadyJane says:

    PS why all the hate for Jessica Westerfeldt’s face? I think she is cute. Okay, she isn’t a glamazon super model, but she is a talented writer and producer. And okay, she botoxes a bit too much, but is that even note-worthy in hollywood anymore? Does every wife have to either be A. A supermodel or B. A a bit frumpy and inoffensive (see Hugh Jackman’s perfectly lovely wife)

  10. Faye says:

    I usually love January Jones (I know I am alone in this), and I’ve excused or actually liked a lot of her odd fashion choices, but this . . .there’s just no making this good. The hair, the makeup, the dress – it’s all just one big no.

    Elisabeth Moss looks simple, great, and beautiful. Power to her!

    Jessica Pare looks astoundingly bad. She used to look really beautiful to me, especially when she didn’t show her teeth (okay, that was nasty), but she just seems off here. And sorry to say this, but either the bottom of that dress is remarkably unflattering, or she has put on a lot of weight in the off-season. I’m not saying she’s fat at all, but that dress just does nothing for her.

  11. Hautie says:

    First, if you are going to wear red lipstick. Get your teeth bleached.

    Nearly every female who had red lipstick on…. wore a red with a yellow undertone. So it just made everyone’s teeth look bad.

    I will never understand why January does not use the stylist from Mad Men, to dress her for events.

    The same with Christina Hendricks.

    Because it seems that the stylist from that show, truly have talent with making women look their very best.

    I blame the awful eye makeup on peer pressure. :) And being bullied by makeup artist, who are determined to paint these girls up to look old and tired.

  12. Yael says:

    i always feel bad when i see pics of the hamm’s girlfried – her face just looks so painfully tight. i’m afraid it would crack if she really tried to smile.

  13. emmie_a says:

    On Mad Men January looks as flawless and graceful and beautiful as Grace Kelly — but she loses all those qualities in real life. She’s very pretty but she looks awful. Her hair, her makeup, her gown – all wrong! I guess I just want Betty Draper on the red carpet, not January Jones!

    Alexis looks cute and her and Vincent are a cute couple but I hate her bangs – they make her look sort of dowdy.

    Ugh Jessica’s hair/makeup/gown are all
    kinds of bad. I hope her role on this season of MM is downplayed. Less Megan more bad boy Don. please!!

  14. Quinn says:

    There are some homely women in those pictures.

  15. bea says:

    JJ is supposed to be beautiful? I don’t get it. And lately her eyebrows are looking really big and brown and her hair looks super brassy lately.

  16. keats says:

    ‘Dystopian hair’. Haha. My first thought was Dieter from Sprockets.

  17. lower-case deb says:

    why is she wearing a Har Gau on her dress?!
    it’s making me hungry!

    btw: har gau (crystal dumplings)

  18. tracking says:

    January Jones has worn her hair like that before. Why, for the love of god, why repeat the fiasco?? But how cute do Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel look together?

  19. Miss Kiki says:

    Aww Conner and Rory look rather cute together.

  20. serena says:

    God the close up is so horrible, but from a distance her dress and make up were good.

    Oh and I’m happy for Alexis, she’s just too lovely.

  21. poppy says:

    how do you make someone thin look extra chunky on the bottom?
    jason wu.

    january jones uses makeup people that certainly hate her. did they fill her brows in with navy blue?

  22. Kate says:

    January Jones looks like a plain girl who’s had a lot of professional help getting ready, with her hair and makeup like that, which given she actually looks like a lite version of Grace Kelly is startling. Really weird. How can you make someone with such regular, conventionally perfect features look so angular, and with too large a nose for her face?

  23. Eleonor says:

    Jessica Pare looks like a Disney villain, and that dress doesn’t fit her! She’s got a much more lovely figure.

  24. judyjudy says:

    Don Draper is hot but Jon Hamm isn’t. It is amazing how some made and a comb can completely change a man’s appeal.

  25. afrotastic says:

    I quite like January’s dress. The hair and makeup not so much. Off topic but I wonder why she will not be returning to the X-Men movie? Thoughts.

  26. Marianne says:

    I kind of like January’s look. She always goes for something different.

  27. lucy2 says:

    Elizabeth looks good, and I like Alexis’ dress but not her hair.
    Oh Jessica, the makeup!
    January’s dress reminds me of a bib, and I didn’t like her hair.
    Jennifer’s face looks like it always does, don’t get the surprise. Not a big fan of her dress either.

  28. Talie says:

    At this point, I don’t care so much if Jan Jo looks like a total mess…at least she does something different! It’s so boring, we need more risks.

  29. rebecca says:

    I think January looks great. Love the David Bowie hair.

  30. Agnes says:

    what’s up with Westfield’ s face? cheek implants? something off with the lips? wth .

  31. Ms Kay says:

    January Jones… What in the Annie Lennox hell????

  32. Happy21 says:

    January Jones was so, so stunning as Betty Draper the first few seasons, I can never understand why, when she is not Betty she doesn’t look nearly as stunning?

    Elisabeth Moss looks adorable even though it is a bit boring of a look.

    Yikes!!!! Jessica Pare looks TERRIBLE. I think it’s great she is Canadian and wore a Canadian designer but the dress doesn’t fit her and makes her body look all effed up. And that closeup almost sent me running.

    Alexis and Vincent look adorable and so cute together.

    Jon Hamm looks good as usual and his girlfriend/life partner looks so tight and squeaky in the face, it looks like it must hurt.

  33. valleymiss says:

    January Jones is gonna meet Matthew Vaughn at the Lobster Shack after the show. That’s why she’s wearing that white bib. Get the all you can eat special, Jan! And the child support hush money check!

  34. Aurelia says:

    That Jessica chick needs to work out.

  35. Melissa says:

    I like Elisabeth Moss’ dress, but her eye makeup is not flattering. It looks like she lined the inside of her eyes all around.

  36. emmie_a says:

    Is January secretly married or engaged?… She’s wearing a band on her ring finger. May mean nothing but maybe I missed some gossip??

  37. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    Sweet fancy Moses, that close-up of Jessica Pare should come with more strident warnings. I was scrolling down, and eeeeeek!

    Kartheiser looks stoned to the bejeebers.

  38. ladybert62 says:

    Dang, all of those dresses, hairdos and makeup are horrible.

  39. Cazzie says:

    Jennifer Westfeldt’s hair looks pretty, shiny, and bouncy – and the color is flattering. Points for good hair!

  40. Angela Carberry says:

    Pete Campbell’s hairline and weight gain are for the show – he said so in an interview after Season 5 wrapped – thank God ya because that hair is UNFORTUNATE!

  41. ZenB!tch says:

    January Jones always shocks me by how pretty she is as Betty and how not pretty she is in real life.

    Jennifer Westfeld has an over pulled face and jowls – how does that happen?

    Jessica Pare – see comment about January and add; they look ridiculous in real life. They are made up for the camera. If done right, it does wonders for your photos. In my 20s I had the world’s best CDL photo. That was so worth going out in public like the ghost hooker zombie from hell.
