Splish, splash, January was taking a bath! 

January Jones showed off a very stripped-down version of herself for the new online magazine The Violet Files. The Mad Men actress, 36, posed nude in a bath and on a bed in lingerie, along with more traditional beauty shots, which show off her flawless skin and strong eyebrows.

"I try to take risks and shock people a bit," she told the Violet Grey digital publication. "It's important to provoke some sort of emotion, negative or positive."

Indeed, the gorgeous images of Jones may cause awe, admiration, and a twinge of jealousy (if only we could look as sexy in a tub!). To create the fierce red lip, Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin applied Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in La Fascinate. And for her striking arches, Goodwin used Laura Mercier Brow Definer. While Jones admits that her favorite part is her lips, she revealed that her mother is to thank for her bold brows. "[She told me] to not over pluck your eyebrows, a strong brow makes you look younger," she said.

In keeping with the "fresh from the bath" theme, her blonde hair was styled in a wet hair look. "Classic, wet, slicked back hair is very graphic; it allows the beauty of the face to shine through," celeb hairstylist Giannandrea said.

While Jones hasn't shown a preference for her own hair color, having dabbled with different hues, she weighed in on whether men really do prefer blondes. "I think gentlemen rarely have a preference but having been a redhead and a brunette before, I will say I get more attention being a blond, it must have something to do with light reflection," the single mom to Xander, 2, said.

When asked who she most wanted to go to bed with -- dead or alive, Jones simply answered, "Paul Newman or Rihanna." While her on-screen ex-husband Don Draper didn't make her list, Jones did have kind words to say about Jon Hamm. "I think he's amazing. Very kind and generous, well read, very strong but easily vulnerable, very funny but also dark," she said. "My friend."
