January Jones In Prabal Gurung – 2013 SAG Awards

January Jones In Prabal Gurung - 2013 SAG Awards‘Mad Men’ actress January Jones used the 2013 SAG Awards to try out a fashion-forward statement that was far from the ’60s style of her show.

While she went for the popular black-and-white trend, she took a big risk with her Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 look styled with two Lorraine? Schwartz ?platinum? and? diamond bracelets.?

The shorter cocktail-style dress was transformed from its runway incarnation with the addition of a longer skirt to follow the formality of the Screen Actors Guild occasion.

The structured gown fits her well, but the napkin-like neckline of the bodice may be an acquired taste.

Her beauty look likewise followed the same bold path, with her pompadour-style hair and bright orange-red lip.

Did you appreciate January’s daring jaunt down the red carpet?

    I can see why some would hate it; for me, it’s a nice return to form for January.

    So glad for that January is daring on the red carpet, I wish more stars would be more fearless in their approach to dressing.

    Yes, I appreciate the effort. If I see one more strapless, mermaid gown with sparkle, I’ll have to scream. At least she’s playing with fashion instead of going the barbie, cookie-cutter route like everybody else being lauded here.

    appreciate that its something different.

    now this is just my opinion, but i think she looks crazy, and quite often her fashion risks just make her look quite strange. i love the red versace (?) moment she had a while back though. i think that is the only good january jones moment i can personally remember.

    If you can’t turn to JJ to bring the cutting edge, who can you turn to? I’m not in love with this, but I do find it interesting.

    Bonus points for the hair. Very Twiggy Stardust.

  7. Moxie January 28, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

    She took a risk, but I am not a fan. The top looks like she’s wearing a napkin. The hair is too OTT. Big fat no for me.

  8. Lisa January 28, 2013 at 2:19 pm #

    Dont hate it, but dont love it either. Just not my personal taste. It fits her very well.

  9. dee January 28, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    I don’t like her hair. I prefer this as presented in the lookbook. This isn’t working for me.

  10. justme January 28, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

    The lookbook version is flawless but it doesn’t translate well as a gown at all.
    January has done edgy much better in the past so that’s a no for me.

  11. Ysatis January 28, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    I like everything but the pompadour. I think the pompadour belongs to the hair style graveyard.

    • Rebecca Z January 28, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

      YES! I totally agree. Love the dress, hate the hair.

  12. Jai January 28, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    Love it. Totally stands out amongst the other looks.

  13. kane January 28, 2013 at 9:10 am #

    I ADORE the lookbook version.

  14. rebecca o January 28, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    I like all of it, though I prefer the shorter version of the dress.

    There aren’t many risk takers at all on the red carpet, so i always like seeing what January is going to do.

    When I saw this dress in the lookbook I went gaga. This is such an awesome design and so unique. I was hopin for a JLaw PG combo again, this time at the oscars but JJ has betten her to the punch. A great dress and a gopd look, I even look the makeup andnalthough the hairs aa bit high for my taste, I love this daring look. NowI have to find another dress for my fav and oscar pick JLaw.

  16. Yeliz January 28, 2013 at 6:52 am #

    I’m not wowed but I like it.

  17. Mol January 28, 2013 at 5:30 am #

    This is one of my favorites of the night – a stand out look that January carries off beautifully

  18. diamondted January 28, 2013 at 5:05 am #

    Finally, a look that i not it. BDOW!!!

  19. unvacuous January 28, 2013 at 4:40 am #

    I love this on her, and I usually don’t like her red carpet choices, but I find this flattering on her and interesting.

  20. Prudence January 28, 2013 at 4:14 am #

    THAT HAIR!!! its sooo awful, I cant forgive it. what was she thinking???

  21. KK January 28, 2013 at 4:08 am #

    I really like this on her. It’s modern and minimalist. It’s both edgy and not overdone and I think the hair and red lip compliment that idea.

  22. Marybeth January 28, 2013 at 3:54 am #

    I like the lookbook dress but it doesn’t work without the shorter draped skirt to balance it out. Also, I don’t like the way in January’s version you can see that black neck band behind the “napkin.” Did they use a sheerer fabric?

    This whole look from the hair down just isn’t working for me.

  23. Beth Rodrigues January 28, 2013 at 3:43 am #

    Ms Jones looks wonderful..forward looking fashion, no holds barred..awesome!!!

  24. EmmaWoodhouse January 28, 2013 at 3:40 am #

    This is the January of old–pulling off an edgy, futuristic look with great aplomb. The simple yet daring gown is well balanced by the hair and makeup. It really works for her.

            +4 adore this look!

    • Elise January 28, 2013 at 11:33 am #

      I totally agree!

    • Leti January 28, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

      Agreed! The hair and neckline aren’t necessarily to my taste, but she is totally pulling this off!

  25. Fiona - Perth January 28, 2013 at 3:39 am #

    I like the runway version, the long skirt looks like an afterthought. Don’t like the hair or the makeup. I think Nicole Kidman could pull off this look, not January.

  26. Rashmi January 28, 2013 at 3:36 am #

    The dress is good and very flattering to her. However neck up is what I don’t like. The hair is too severe, the bold crimson lips adds up to it, and makes this risk fail.

  27. Christine January 28, 2013 at 3:36 am #

    I prefer the lookbook version. falling flat on Jones.


  28. Nat39 January 28, 2013 at 3:34 am #

    It isn´t working as a gown version for me, the pompadour hairstyle looks ridiculous, an odd unappealing look as far as I´m concerned.

    • Nat39 January 28, 2013 at 5:09 am #

      and the bright orange lippie isn´t working for me either. It´s like a weird ´restaurant hostess´ costume, not every bold edgier look works unfortunately, and I think it´s a miss for her.
