January Jones In Mary Katrantzou – ‘La Revolution Bleue’ Special Screening

January Jones attended the ‘La Revolution Bleue’ Special Screening at the Paris Theatre in New York City last night.

Following Scarlett Johansson, the actress wore a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012 dress.

Her digitally engineered printed off-the-shoulder cocktail dress with a peplum detail at the waist is a gorgeous masterpiece, but January is not selling it to me – quelle surprise.

She looks totally overwhelmed by the nature of the fashion-forward look.

If you click on the image above and view all the pictures from this event, in every picture her hand is placed in front of her like she’s just not confident enough to rock this look.

Picture Blake Lively in this look. Golden locks flowing, hand on the hip to show off the peplum detail and head slightly tilted to the left. It would’ve worked, no?

    She always screams ice queen to me, she’s completely sub zero. This beautiful dress deserves better.

      Real ice queens just stand tall yet you’re in total awe. She just doesn’t have it.

        I agree. This dress is definitely a Blake Lively dress.

      i agree with FC on this,with Blake wearing it it wld be something for sure,and as it is with JJ it’s nothing

    • Jacqu May 4, 2012 at 16:13 #

      Nope, definitely would not.

      I’d love to see Blanchett in this, she’d rock that so hard the world would shake.

    what’s with the hair too? feels like zero effort went into this look

  4. EmmaWoodhouse May 4, 2012 at 12:38 #

    I’m not really a fan of the dress itself, and the fact that January is doing nothing whatsoever doesn’t help. She’s doing nothing; I feel nothing.

      I agree. This dress is ugly to me. Too much going on for my taste.

  5. Lee Ann May 4, 2012 at 12:40 #

    This woman always disappoints on the red carpet.

    Things I noticed immediately: frumpy stance (who the duck poses that way with their hands in front of them?) and the boring Rossis.

    Congrats January, you did the impossible- you made Katrantzou snoozeville.

    JajJo is almost always a fashion victim. Definitely, one here.

  8. Erika May 4, 2012 at 14:15 #

    Not a fan of the look whatsoever, but had she worn her hair down we would have all been saying how distracting it is with a busy dress like this one.

  9. Emmy May 4, 2012 at 14:51 #

    I was thinking the exact same thing! Blake would have rocked this look!

  10. Katie May 4, 2012 at 15:27 #

    January looks totally out of her depth wearing this

  11. rebecca o May 4, 2012 at 17:37 #

    Blake Lively makes everything look trashy, so no, I wouldn’t want to see her in this dress. I think January looks lovely.

    The catwalk long version = perfection….J.Jones short version looks like a thai pagoda = no!

    never thought i would write those words but the peplum ruins the dress, it’s just too long.

  14. Yeliz May 4, 2012 at 20:13 #

    I don’t like January in general, agree with Jones19 that she looks like a ice queen every time. On this occasion I hate her pose, hate the shoes and sorry to say this but also hate the dress. Katrantzou is always interesting and this dress is no exception, even if it’s modified, but January ruins it.

    Blake would do much more damage to this look than JJ. She would make it look cheap again and i mean it on a very Topshop knockoff level :/I think the perfect person for this look is Camilla Belle or Christina Ricci

    “Quelle surprise” : J’ADORE :D
