Vanity Fair Oscar Party – 2006

January Jones showed up at the Vanity Fair Oscar party wearing a metallic gown with silver detailing across the top. While the actress was still dating Josh Groban when she attended this event, their relationship wasn’t going to last much longer. Fortunately for Jones, her career was about to take off. In 2007, she landed the part of Betty Draper on AMC’s “Mad Men,” which turned the struggling actress into a household name.

American Cinematheque Gala – 2007

The “American Wedding” actress looked lovely in this blush colored gown with a plunging neckline, which she wore to the American Cinematheque Gala. January Jones had already landed the part of Betty Draper on “Mad Men” at this point. She had initially auditioned for the role of Peggy Olson, but Matthew Weiner had another role in mind for her. “He wasn’t sure what he was going to do with [Betty Draper], and there weren’t any real lines for Betty at the time,” Jones told the Chicago Sun-Times. “He wrote a couple scenes overnight – really amazing scenes, actually – and I came in and read for him, and that was it.”
