January Jones Style

January Jones Alluring Poolside Glamor for The Edit

I recently read the interview January Jones did with The Edit, Net-A-Porter's online magazine and I found it to be fascinating. Not only did I learn that January is good friends with actress, Diane Kruger, but she takes style cues from her as well. January told the magazine of Diane, "She always looks fantastic, so I watch what she wears. We like to go to shows or look online and then fight each other for the best pieces."  In my search I remembered the two of them appeared in the movie, Unknown together, so now it all makes sense.

For her accompanying editorial, Jones was photographed poolside looking glamorous, wearing several elegant gowns from Gucci, Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta and Roland Mouret. It's hard to pick my favorite look because she is so beautiful in all of them, but the sea-foam single-shoulder Lanvin ruffled dress paired with the gold Saint Laurent heels is a standout ensemble for me personally.  

Jones is rumored as being a known "Ice Queen", gossip sites and even the New York Times have even labeled her as being a "bitch". My understanding of this, is because she keeps her private life, private and has been known to stay in character {Betty Draper} while filming because she is a "method actor". I must say that I have a renewed respect for the Mad Men star, upon reading this interview. I have always liked Jones as an actress and love her bold fashion choices. She is one I frequently love seeing on the red carpet for that reason alone. 

I like that she is mysterious and doesn't reveal too much about her life to the public. It reminds me a bit of Old Hollywood, (a Kardashian-free, simpler time). It's refreshing that the 35-year-old actress doesn't expose and let it all hang out just to stay relevant in the spotlight. I also appreciate that Jones refuses to reveal the identity of her son's father and her reasoning for that is commendable. Telling the magazine, "There are parts of your life — no matter what your job — that should remain private. When my son asks those questions, I want him to hear it from me. I don't want him to be able to Google it."

She has a point, at the end of the day, it's not our {the public's} business. I won't lie, when she finally decides to reveal the information, I will more than likely buy the magazine with the exclusive interview.

What do you think of January's interview and fashion editorial? Do you see her a bit differently now as I do?
