January Jones, VIOLET GREY

January Jones, is that you?!

The Mad Men actress stars in Violet Grey's The Violet Files ahead of the groundbreaking series' final seven episodes on A&E, and, oh, she went topless to boot. Jones stuns in a half black-and-white, half full-color pictorial that, in one shot, has her long textured waves as the only thing covering her naked upper body. (Yep, our jaws pretty much unhinged too.)

The blond (well, now peach-pink) beauty poses in a series of shots that feature her with red lips (her beauty staple), no-makeup makeup looks and no less than six different hairstyles.

One look, dubbed the "Gallery Girl," shows January with wine-red lips (a crimson lipstick and "good" pair of stilettos are apparently Jones' must-haves for looking put-together in a flash).

January sports a fish-tail braid in a black-and-white snap called "Gym Peacock" (we're guessing the name harks to her white sports bra and chic feather capelet).

For "Black-Tie Gala," January's makeup artist Rachel Goodwin went for a mod feel to go with the star's feathered platinum bangs and striking Schiaparelli dress.

"Feeding off the slightly mussed-up hair, this eye is reminiscent of the '60s but slightly askew, slightly imperfect," Goodwin said. So Betty Draper.

The sixties beat didn't end there, however: In "In the Dressing Room" January's voluminous platinum bob and vintage Dries van Noten sweater are serving us the sort of style that we came to know and love on the series.

It's difficult to believe that someone as beautiful as January could have qualms about her looks (especially with a spread like this one under her belt). But, like the rest of us, she does sometimes.

"I was at my most confident as a kid," she revealed to the mag. "It actually wasn't until I got into high school and started to get quote-unquote pretty that my confidence started to disappear. So I want to give the message that girls can be proud and self-assured no matter what funky haircut they have."

We're with you on that, Ms. Jones.
