January Jones: Diane Kruger Inspires My Fashion

January Jones: Diane Kruger Inspires My Fashion

January Jones graces the cover of The Edit‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Mad Men star had to share with the mag:

On fighting with Diane Kruger for outfits: “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].”

On her son Xander‘s father: “It’s just not something the public needs to know. I don’t divulge my sexual preferences. There are parts of your life – no matter what your job – that should remain private. When I was starting out, other actors advised me to keep certain things close to the vest. When you become a public figure people want to know everything about you, and then [they] pick it apart – it becomes negative. 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.”

On being a single mom: “I don’t have room for anything else, so I don’t know how I would have done it with a partner. I knew I would be raising my son alone. It was something I went in to knowingly, I was prepared mentally – and I was excited about it.”

    So worthless “actresses” January Jones and Diane Kruger are fighting over 3000$ Chanel blazer meanwhile every second a child dies in this world over hunger… I wanna go and puke -.-

  • Jen

    @ meh: why do you call her a home wrecker? Which random married dudes are she banging?

  • move it along

    Figures she would see Kruger as an icon. She probably relates since both are so dull and bland.

  • sheri

    January and Diane are such talented and beautiful ladies.

  • vanessa

    Diane is flawless, my fashion icon :)

  • excuse me

    january jones was nominated for 2 golden globes and she also got 1 emmy

    I don’t really know a lot about her and I’ve heard people call her a bitch but I don’t really care – have you tried being a bitch to a two year old? you’ll regret it in three seconds if you have.

    @move it along: Took the words right out of my mouth! And after reading this, now I know why both always wear the stupidest looking clothes out to events.

    You can be a fashion icon and then you can be someone who wears ugly fashion, and say that you like to take chances just to get attention. Both of these boring mocktresses are the perfect example of the latter. (Cue the Kruger link poster now…)

  • lem

    She’s right about Diane having flawless taste in clothes . And i love that they became friends on the set of Unknown even though they didn’t have any scene together.

  • Tae

    What do your sexual preference and baby daddy have to do with it. Unless your preference is taken man.

  • sylvi

    I love January Jones

  • dude

    The diane-style is a good choice…you just make work what suits you..allways the best idea!

  • F

    January Jones and Diane Kruger, two bitches talentless

  • sand

    i had no idea January was friends with Diane. aww, she looks gorgeous here

  • Alex

    Love this shoot and love her.

  • Tara

    I think the baby daddy is Joshua Jackson, obviously Diane isn’t gonna give him a kid. Why not have a friend do it for you.

  • Alex

    She’s right about Diane looking flawless at all times

  • opius


    No way, the baby doesn’t even look like Joshua. But you are right, Diane is never ever going to give Joshua a kid.

  • Issie

    Diane and January make great friends: both are cold, boring, C-list actresses.

  • Kay

    both are actresses terrible and no charisma

  • Cara

    I’m kinda puzzled about her. I think she’s stunning because she reminds me of Grace Kelly and I absolutely adore her in Mad Men. Her character is supposed to be cold and distant (except I hate the fat suit) and she’s just perfect. BUT I was so disappointed by her because she hit on Liam while he still engaged to Miley. It was his fault obviously as well, but January is mom, older and should know better.

  • demi

    She’s beautiful and I like her on Mad Men

  • dietrich

    January and Diane both critically acclaimed actresses. And it doesnt hurt that they both have beauty and style.

  • nepal

    Gorgeous cover

  • Ester

    @excuse me: she won that . due to her role as Betty Draper but she is horrible on as anything not Betty.

  • Ester

    @dietrich: @dietrich: this is a big joke, where Dk and JJ are actresses acclaimed by the critics? …

  • ori

    this is a really nice shoot

  • dietrich


    January is critically acclaimed for her work in mad man.
    Diane Kruger is critically acclaimed for her work in Joyeux Noel,
    anything for her, Frankie, mr.nobody, inglourius b*stards and Farewell my queen.

  • liev

    i’ve always respected her for not saying who the father was of her son. It’s nobody business

  • JJ Yum

    @Tae: I was just about to say, how did she go from the question of her baby’s father to her ‘sexual preferences’…WTF? Is she saying that he was just a one-night stand sperm donor? Weird.

  • Mira

    Diane Kruger and January are both over the hill women with stagnant careers and absolutely no personality. Both are pathetic.

  • deborah

    January and Diane are both talented woman. They keep working steadily. And it’s so nice to see 2 actresses being friends with each other.

  • niel

    I agree, both of them are beautiful and amazing actresses

  • ann

    It’s no ones damn business who fathered her baby! You tell ‘em January!

  • brandslane
