Donatella Versace dubs 'Mad Men' star January Jones 'the most glamorous actress of our time'.

Donatella Versace has high praise for spokesmodel January Jones.

In a behind the scenes video of her recent ad campaign, the woman behind the Italian luxury brand said she chose the 33-year-old actress to be the face of Versace accessories because "she looks like the most glamorous actress of our time."

Jones appears nude in the ads for Versace accessories, save for high-heeled shoes and a strategically placed handbag.

"She's a girl who has no fear," the designer said.

The actress skyrocketed to fame on the 1960s' era AMC hit drama "Mad Men." While her style on the show is prim and perfect, a la Doris Day, the sexy black and white Versace ads, shot by Mario Testino, have the blond actress channeling another 1960s' icon -- Catherine Deneuve from the 1967 film "Belle du Jour."

Jones has worn Versace dresses to many high profile events, including the 2011 Golden Globes and last year's Emmys.

"I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blond," Versace told Women's Wear Daily late last year. "In January, I feel I have found a perfect Versace woman for the 21st century."

Versace's love for flaxen-haired models is no secret. The tanned designer even has her own perfume named after her favorite female trait: Blonde.
