Babe of the Day – January Jones
Did you ever think for a minute that while we were doing our Mad Men Babes of the Day that we wouldn’t include January Jones?
Sure, she’s polarizing. Especially as Betty Draper. Or I guess I should say Betty Francis now. But her icy demeanor on Mad Men must be overlooked to see the babe that is January Jones. Not just any babe, the Babe of the Day.
You know how Denzel Washington is supposedly the world’s most handsome man because he has a perfectly symmetrical face? Something about symmetry is what humans associate with beauty. I wish I could test the symmetry of January Jones‘s face because just by looking at it I know that it’s goddamn near perfect.
I mean just look at her. January Jones on Mad Men looks like Grace Kelly but supped-up for the 21st century.
Now, I know a lot of you hate Betty Draper/Francis, but you really have no reason to. It’s been established that her mother was emotionally abusive and even though everyone loves Jon Hamm, Don Draper was not a very good influence on her. Whenever an episode follows Betty, I just feel bad for her. She kind of reminds me of Michael Jackson in that old Martin Bashir interview. She’s too sensitive to handle the real world and not getting the right support from the people around her, like Michael Jackson. So stop with the Betty hate, ok?
As for January Jones, Mad Men fans often question her ability to act. I feel like the decision to make Betty fat in season five was to show people January Jones was a competent actress (not an amazing one, but competent) and wasn’t just coasting on her good looks.
Speaking of good looks, January Jones is so fucking good looking.
You know, January is the coldest month, but January Jones is red hot.
I’m so sorry for that joke. Total embarrassment. Please let’s never speak of it again.
January Jones, congratulations on being Babe of the Day!
