January Jones joins Versace

2010-11-22 16:57

Los Angeles - January Jones is the new face of Versace.

The Mad Men actress will front the Italian fashion house's spring campaign next year with the images already been shot by legendary photographer Mario Testino.

Although a Versace spokesman confirmed January was in the campaign, he wouldn't comment any further.

As well as being signed for Versace, January has become a huge hit in the fashion world since taking on the role of Betty Draper in Mad Men and recently spoke out about how proud she is to be involved in a show that celebrates curvy women.

She said: "Now, I think women have become a little more rigid or hard - and I don't think it's because of men. I think it's because women have become more masculine or we've forced ourselves to become more masculine. What's in fashion now is very thin and hard.

"I think what's great about the show is that, just in terms of fashion, it has helped bring a certain silhouette back. That womanly, cinched waist... I mean, a year before Mad Men came out, everything was very boxy and sort of shapeless.

"Now, as much as I hate getting into my girdle every day for the show, it's brought that beautiful line back. You think of a lady when you see it. It's kind of refreshing. You don't have to give up your femininity to be a powerful woman."
