Princess of the Night: Kiernan Shipka

If you don’t watch Mad Men I urge you to give it a try just for Sally Draper. Sally is a firecracker and so is the young actress who plays her.

And her style is amazing. Read the rest of this entry »

Superheroes at the Emmys: January Jones


Actress January Jones in Zac Posen

I love how dramatic this is. I love how architectural it is. I love how heroine chic it is. And I love how Betty Draper or Emma Frost it isn’t.

Superheroes at the Met: January Jones

January’s look is so heroine chic fashion people on twitter called her a superhero.

Her bodice is amazing. It’s the definition of heroine chic. But the best part of this image is that smile. I’ve professed my affection for Ms. Jones and her Frosty Performance but I love to see her look so happy.

Here’s the rest of the dress: Read the rest of this entry »

January Jones, Betty Draper, and Emma Frost

January Jones is fascinating.

January played a sociopath, Kim Brody, on an episode of Law and Order (“Quit Claim”). She was a beautiful, calculating, manipulative ingenue whose visible emotions ranged from raising an eyebrow to pursing a lip. She was always a step ahead of the game. She played each moment with straight confidence born in the knowledge that she always got away with everything. She was an ice queen who hated everyone because they didn’t love her. This episode played on TNT a couple weeks ago and when my brother asked “who’s that?” I answered:

Emma Frost.

Superheroine of the Night: January Jones

Watching E’s Golden Globes Live from the Red Carpet pre-show last night I started to worry that nobody went for the heroine chic look (and THEN where would I be?). But then, there she was:

January Jones has truly and certainly discovered her Inner Emma Frost. Here’s the full look —

Crazy/Beautiful: January Jones (Emmys)

Diane Kruger was not the Emmys, but January Jones tried to step into her shoes: 1. I love JJ’s style and was looking forward to her look; 2. when I first saw this look I said “Hmmmm” meaning “I just can’t decide what I think of this”; 3. but the more I looked at her the more I liked it and now here I am saying she could be my favourite:

The colour is stunning. The silhouette is risky but she can pull it off. The structure is the main Hmmmm. part —

Flashback Friday: January Jones

You’ve heard the news. Betty Draper is the new Emma Frost in X-Men First Class. Or January Jones is, but at least 80% of the announcements called her Betty first, January second (and the last 20% had lines about January Frosting. So clever, right?). On the surface, Emma and Betty are quite similar. Underneath the surface they are nothing alike, and that makes it all the more interesting.

It is very unclear to me (and I’d venture a guess, to EVERYONE) what this movie is about. Emma Frost is not a “First Class” X-Men (meaning one of the first members of the team, whether or not she is First Class meaning awesome is up for debate and something of a polarizing topic for many fans — another similarity to Betty Draper, I’ll add). My favourite Emma is actually found in her solo title that featured her early years (circa First Class) but who knows what Emma this Emma is going to be so who knows if January is a good fit!

But we can discuss her LOOK.

Things that make you go Hmmmm. (Met Gala VIII)

This is cute.

I think it might be physically impossible for Carey Mulligan to not be cute. But she could wear this Miu Miu out shopping and it wouldn’t cause a stir. I mean the pockets are especially adorable but Carey. No.
