A First Look At January Jones As Emma Frost In X-Men: First Class

The first photos have emerged of January Jones as Emma Frost on the Pinewood Studios set of X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn’s swinging ’60s reboot of the Fox franchise. (Yes, I know that some insist it’s a prequel, but I don’t buy it.) You can go here and here to see more images on Jones in her all-white ensemble.

First Class, which began filming last week in England, centers on the early friendship between Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr, who work with other mutants to stop a global threat. In the process, a rift between them opens, beginning the war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men. It’s set for release on June 3, 2011.

The film so far stars: James McAvoy as Charles Xavier; Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr; Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw; January Jones as Emma Frost; Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique; Nicholas Hoult as Henry McCoy/Beast; Caleb Landry Jones as Sean Cassidy/Banshee; Lucas Till as Alex Summers; Edi Gathegi as Darwin; Jason Flemyng as Azazel; Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggart; Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore; Bill Milner as young Erik Lensherr; and Morgan Lily as young Raven Darkholme/Mystique.

    That's a whole lotta hat!

    Forget the hat!!!! That's too much costume, she should be showing alot more skin than that (ie. Morrison's Frost version). ;-)

    That hat makes her look like the Russian royal family, tsarina — I think.

    i like this costume. gives me a lot more hope for the film; remember, it's set in the 1960s. “Doctor Zhivago” was released in 1965, and had quite a large effect on fashions of the time. so this makes it seem like at least somebody is trying for a proper period feel, rather than dropping modern spandex suits into the picture.

    I am a huge Emma Frost fan and though this isn't an A+ costume to me, just getting to see Emma on the big screen in a real depiction is awesome.

    Even for a movie set in the 60s, she should be showing more skin.

    Wouldn't this as a prequel make Cyclops pretty old?
