Rashida Jones can pull off anything. A perfect example? She wore what appears to be pigtails to a screening of Monogamy and looked totally cute and normal.

January Jones looked smoking hot at the Golden Globes, no? For her face, Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Liberty ($33) on January's eyes, and for her gorgeous lip color, she used Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Exces ($32).
For January's hair, Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora began by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Styling Whip ($23) and Contrôle Ironless Straightening Balm ($25) to smooth. He parted her hair to the side and blow dried it using a round brush. To create waves, he put her hair in hot rollers and let them sit for 10 minutes. Once he took the rollers out, Renato brushed through her hair, creating volume and constructing shape for the style, and finished up with a spritz of hairspray.
