In or Out: Mad Women
Christina’s been hit or miss in the past, partially because you really have to know what you’re doing to dress a body like that for pictures and partially because (sorry Joan!) she hasn’t always demonstrated great taste. In terms of being body-appropriate, this is a pretty good choice. It hugs her curves nicely. With top-heavy women it can be difficult sometimes to find the right silhouette that a)shows off your curves, b)doesn’t scream “Here they are, boys!” or c) turn her into a shapeless column. So she did pretty good here even if we don’t particularly love the huge ruffle-y straps. Also, the color is perfect for her. And even though she went too matchy-match on the shoe-bag question, she’s still IN.
Oh, Christ. Look January, we get that as an actress you might want to stay as far away from the look of your most famous character in order to avoid typecasting. Since Betty is so often seen in gorgeous early-’60s clothing, it makes sense that you’d want to wear something a little wilder and out there. But honey? This looks plain stupid on you. We don’t know if that dress was altered or if it’s just the wrong size for her, but look at how much tighter and shorter it is on the model. It’s not a dress we could love under any circumstance, but it at least looks a little cuter and sassier in its original form. On January it looks sad and shapeless and those two little nipple bows wind up looking ridiculous. Also, the hair? AWFUL. You said once that you don’t use stylists. Honey, take a good look at yourself. That’s nothing to brag about. OUT.
