January Jones In Carolina Herrera – 2011 SAG Awards

Most Refreshing Award
I was quite relieved when I saw that January Jones wasn’t wearing Versace on the red carpet at the 2011 SAG Awards.

I’ve always believed that most of her Versace looks have totally overwhelmed her, so this is a refreshing change.

She opted for a black and gold lace Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2011 mermaid gown which I really loved on her.

Her look has an old Hollywood vintage regal feel to it which I feel like she’s deliberately avoided giving us so we don’t compare her to ‘Betty Draper.’

On this occasion the hair works with the dress, so she gets a thumbs up from me for the first time in a very long time.

Who Wore Versace Better? January Jones or Cheryl Cole

Here we have two girls who really love to wear Versace on the red carpet.

January – who is the face of Versace’s Spring 2011 accessories collection – wore her Versace black dress from the Spring 2011 collection to the Central Saint Martins 20:20 Fashion Fund launch party in London back in November.

With a neat tight bun the “Mad Men” actress wore her sexy sleek LBD with black pumps.

Cheryl wore the same dress to the National Television Awards which was held at The O2 in London.

The X Factor judge added warm pops of red to her look via her red Christian Louboutin ‘Big Lips’ pumps and bold red lips.

I do like the look on Cheryl, but I wish she’d saved it for a TV appearance and dressed up more for this occasion.

I was going to give this win to Cheryl for not going head to toe black, but then I saw the back of the dress and I almost died.

January wins for me.

January Jones In Versace – 2011 Golden Globe Awards

Should’ve Worn The Blue/Worst Shoes Award
January Jones was of course wearing Versace on the red carpet at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards.

She wore a Versace Spring 2011 gown of red fringes with a deep V cut out neckline.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress accessorized the look with black Versace patent leather pumps and a black satin Versace clutch.

I really wish she’d worn the blue version, because we’ve seen her wearing a Versace red fringed number when she was front row at the Versace Spring 2011 show.

On TV this dress looked breath-taking, but in these pictures she looks a tad too busty for the dress.

January Jones For Versace Spring 2011 Ad Campaign

January Jones features in Versace’s new Spring/Summer 2011 advertising campaign which was shot by Mario Testino.

My pick for brand ambassador for Versace would’ve been Blake Lively, but after seeing these subtly sensual pictures I will say that Versace made the perfect choice.

January showcases the new Versace accessories with her sophisticated beauty. It’s so easy to forget she’s naked in these pictures.

Donatella Versace said: “I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blonde… and in January I feel I have found a perfect Versace woman for the twenty-first century. She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too – it is a ‘dramatic’ combination.”

The black and white photographs and hair and makeup reference the spirit of the Sixties, which is appropriate as January is best known for her role in “Mad Men”.

The advertising campaign will feature bags, shoes, sunglasses and optical frames from the Versace Spring 2011 collection.

January Jones In Versace – Central Saint Martins 20:20 Fashion Fund

Dominic Cooper, January Jones and Rupert Everett helped Donatella Versace celebrate the launch of the Central Saint Martins 20:20 Fashion Fund at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, London last night.

January Jones is currently in London filming ‘X Men’ and as you know she’s very much Donatella’s favourite.

The ‘Mad Men’ star and unofficial brand ambassador for Versace wore a very severe high bun with her Versace Spring 2011 dress and black suede pumps.

Her black cocktail dress with an open back had shiny black buttons details and patent leather straps.

Donatella opted to wear a very sexy chocolate metallic Versace dress.

This dress didn’t appear on the runway, but if you look at several looks from the Fall 2010 collection, you can see at least 3 looks this dress was derived from.

January Jones Front Row @ Versace Spring 2011

January Jones was the first celebrity sighting at Milan Fashion Week.

If you weren’t sure before, I think this officially confirms January as the darling of the brand.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a red halter Versace ensemble which incorporated both the fringing and geometric shapes from the Spring 2011 collection.

A high bouffant, bright red lips and white shoes completed her look.
