January Jones dazzled in an electric blue Atelier Versace gown with a crinoline hoop skirt at the 2010 Emmy Awards last night, and the Mad Men star gave us the exclusive dish on the arguably most fashion-forward look of the night. “I just felt like a bird. I love it. It’s like a piece of art,” she said, adding that the getting ready process was more calm than crazy. “I just ordered Greek food and watched TV, had a foot rub. I don’t know, I don’t like a lot of stress.” But getting into the dress that she first spied in an Italian fashion magazine a few months back was more of a process. “I had assistance [getting into the dress],” she said. “There’s just two zippers. The corset zip and the outside zip.” Once she got in the gown, she had no trouble walking. “It’s great to walk in because it’s short in the front,” the actress said of her asymmetrical hem. “Turning is a bit tricky! But we’ll see how I feel after sitting in it for five hours.” Do you like Jones’s choice? Tell us in the comments section below!
