The Mad ex! Don Draper's dueling wives in red carpet showdown as January Jones gives Jessica Pare the evil eye






January Jones and Jessica Pare are the rival wives of philandering husband and adman Don Draper on the hit AMC show Mad Men.

But
the two appeared to take their conflict off screen as they attempted to
outshine one another on the red carpet for the 2013 Met Ball in New
York, on Monday.


January, who plays Don's ex Betty Draper, was clearly grimacing as she seemed to offer her co-star an unpleasant glance.

And the
blonde bombshell had good reason to brandish the evil eye as Jessica's
onscreen alter ego Megan has replaced her as the current wife of Mr D
raper.

Pare's unflattering ensemble was also nothing to smile at.



 

But Jessica did not return the jaundiced stare - as contempt is not the favoured expression for the winner of a duel.

Despite her loss onscreen January still managed a win in the fashion department.

As star of 2011's X-Men: First
Class, January could have passed for one of the franchise's flamboyant
characters due to the thick triangular eye liner she adopted.



The
35-year-old's black sequined dress played more of a supporting role,
with her red and black tartan stilettos - created exclusively for Moda
Operandi by British designer Nicholas Kirkwood - playing a larger part
in making her look truly exotic.


The actress completed her striking appearance with her hair coiffed and braided into an 80s New Wave faux hawk.

Rare misstep: Sporting a parted curtain dress the actress opted for ill-fitting black trousers

Jessica, 32, on the other hand demonstrated a rare misstep in her choice of attire.

Donning a parted curtain skirt and wrap-around pleated
peplum, in a brilliant royal blue, the actress wore an incongruous pair
of loose-fitting black trousers that did not have the most flattering
affect on her normally slim looking figure.


Adorning
her striking green eyes was a thick shading of blue eye shadow as she
tied her black tresses into a neatly parted ponytail.

Meanwhile, the current season of Mad Men has the ladies going through a bit of a rough patch in their personal lives.

January
- whose character is now married to older man Henry Francis – is
experiencing a bit of a mid-life crisis and makes a dramatic change in
her appearance.



The once platinum blonde opts for brunette locks, but it is clear that her problems run deeper than a dye job.

And Jessica's Megan doesn't have it any easier as Don has secretly returned to his philandering ways.

Adding
insult to injury the iconic adman grows jealous of Megan's burgeoning
career as a television actress, which entails her cavorting with men
onscreen.


The troubled
husband, who grew up in a whorehouse, cannot help but draw allusions to
his tortured upbringing and feelings of betrayal. In a word, their
marriage isn't going so well.
