  • The gorgeous Mad Men star shared a throwback snap of her with an adorably nerdy mullet

    January Jones is known for her chic sense of style, flawless hair and striking good looks.

    So we couldn’t help but let out an audible gasp (followed by a fit of giggles) when we saw her amazingly nerdy childhood self.

    The Mad Men actress shared a picture of herself rocking a short, spiky blonde mullet and a gapped-tooth smile over the weekend. ‘#nofilter #obviously #ilovemy9yroldself,’ she captioned the pic.


    The 36-year-old actress (who’s mum to 2-year-old son Xander) followed up the post with a current shot of the lovely, grownup face we’re used to.

    ’25yrs later, my eyes are more open but less sweet. #whyistherenothingontvonsatnight?’ she wrote


    January’s childhood picture might just be the best celebrity throwback snap we’ve ever seen. After seeing that baby there’s no way we can justify being embarrassed of our own frizzy-haired, red-faced school pics.

    But then again, when you look like she does now, who cares how geeky you were as a kid?
