January Jones for Violet Grey

January Jones in an inventive shoot that delves into transformation and role play, the 37-year-old actress barreled through half-a-dozen looks in the span of a few hours – and January could not be a more fitting subject. This spring, television audiences will find Jones inhabiting two characters that are utter opposites – be it Betty on AMC’s Mad Men (the final season premieres on April 5th) or in the post-apocalypse comedy, Last Man on Earth. This May, audiences can also see her in a big-screen thriller, The Good Kill, which co-stars Ethan Hawke.

On the concept of her beauty test shoot with Violet Grey:
We wanted to do an elevated take on before-and-after photos and explore the idea that a lot of women, myself included, feel less vulnerable once they’re dressed and have their make up on.

On her now infamous #TBT Instagram:
I was at my most confident as a kid. It actually wasn’t until I got into high school and started to get ‘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. (Jones once posted a photo of herself at age 9 with a mullet)

On the finale of Mad Men: I was surprised, but the show has always surprised me. Each episode is so good and sort of ties up things—not in a perfect bow, obviously—but I think the audience will be happy.
