Whether she's going all out glam for the red carpet or wearing something more casual while off duty, January Jones always manages to look chic and stylish, and Saturday night's Chanel pre-Oscar dinner in Los Angeles was no different. The Mad Men actress chose head-to-toe Chanel for the dinner, wearing painterly wide-leg trousers, a black camisole, and a black leather jacket paired with black shoes and a black quilted bag. And while we're all for the recent surge in pants on the red carpet, Jones had a hilarious and relatable reason for choosing hers.

"I just picked it out this morning. I just grabbed these pants. I just wanted something easy," Jones told InStyle. "I've done a lot of pants lately. I just feel like it's winter, and I don't want to shave my legs. I'm lazy."

Jones, who is not up for an Oscar this year, also said that the Chanel dinner was the perfect place to relax before the big night. "There's just no stress involved. I'm not part of a film that's going to the awards, so I can just relax and hang out and eat good food."
