PHOTOS: January Jones Poses Nude in Furs, the Bath for Violet Grey

January Jones may play the epitome of the 1950s ice queen on Mad Men, but in real life she’s not afraid to be provocative. “I try to take risks and shock people a little bit,” she says in the latest edition of Violet Grey. “It’s important to provoke some sort of emotion, negative or positive.”

And she proves it by posing for some seriously smoldering photographs, aided by Rachel Goodwin’s makeup skills and Giannandrea’s slicked-back hairdos, in The Violet Files. The star exudes major Hollywood glamour in red lips, long nails and diamonds while showing off her sleek physique — both in the tub and wrapped in a floor-length fur (see all the photos here).

But for all she reveals in the photos, Jones is tight-lipped in the interview. As she says, “I prefer to remain mysterious and have people make their own judgment calls about me than to always have to explain who I am and what I’m about.” She does touch a bit on plastic surgery (“Talk to me in 20 years”) and the joys of motherhood (the best night of her life was “The night my son was born for so many reasons”).

With the final season of Mad Men just around the corner, we’ll take any excuse to see Jones channeling Betty Draper — red lips, luxe clothes and all. Check out the rest of her interview at and tell us your thoughts in the comments!

She is so gorgeous. And I really like that she keeps her private life private.

These are not nude photos. She is not showing anything.
If you cannot see anything, then it is no different than wearing
100 layers of clothes.

Nasty, nasty woman. SO glad Josh Groban got away from this monster when he did.

I clicked on the link to see the other photos. Disgusting that she’s exploiting wearing fur by trying to look sexy – yuck. She needs to eat a couple of sandwiches. Her body looks like a folded up bicycle.

Beautiful Photos.

She still can’t act though.

I think she’s pretty, snooty and knows how to keep a secret like no other ;-)

Too bad she doesnt look like this in real life. So much make up and photoshop.

January Jones looks pretty great for having scooped up some guy’s splooge from her stomach and inserted it into her vajay 2 yrs ago.
