Mad Men actress January Jones stars in the 'At Home with JANUARY' editorial for Violet Grey's April 2014 issue. The sultry blonde, who is closely identified with her WASP-y, cold-as-ice character Betty Draper, seems to thaw in this intimate spread, photographed by Ben Hasset.

Make-up artist Rachel Goodwin and hair stylist Giannandrea collaborated on Jones' striking look, featuring velvet-textured red lipstick, a dark purple eyeshadow (sans mascara) and a minimalist 'do. Giannandrea explains the decision, saying, "Classic, wet, slicked back hair is very graphic; it allows the beauty of the face to shine through."

Despite her high-profile celebrity, Jones has managed to retain a mysterious, old-Hollywood allure. 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."
