Januaryjones2Story January Jones showed off her baby bump in style at the "X-Men: First Class" premiere in a black and purple cocktail dress by Preen. Maternity wear never looked so good.

The soon-to-be single mom, who will play hottie and telepathic mutant Emma Frost in the film, stood out among the "X-Men" beauties on the red carpet, including Rose Byrne and Zoe Kravitz, Wednesday night in New York. Noticeably absent was "it" girl Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique.









The superhero movie's leading men James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender joined the lovely ladies at the screening. The duo play younger versions of Professor X (McAvoy) and Magneto (Fassbender) in the "X-Men" prequel, set in the 1960s. Kevin Bacon, who plays the leader of the secret Hellfire Club, and Lucas Till, who portrays a mutant in the movie, rounded out the red carpet.

"X-Men: First Class," opening June 3, reveals the origins of "X-Men's" mutant humans, including the friendship and later falling out between Professor X and Magneto and the underlying influence of mutants on global historical events.
