Donatella Versace is clearly "mad" about Versace campaign star January Jones.

Following the Mad Men actress's provocative nude Spring 2011 campaign, the fashion house is paying tribute to the blonde beauty with a new eyewear collection called January J.

"I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blonde and in January I feel I have found a perfect Versace woman for the 21st century," Versace said in a press release.

"She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too—it is a dramatic combination. January has been a good friend to the house of Versace and she looks wonderful in our Spring/Summer accessories campaign, so I thought it would be fun to name my new eyewear collection after her."

"Inspired by the glamour and chic sexiness" of '50s- and '60s-era movie stars (cue Betty!), Versace designed one optical style and two sunglass styles, including the cat's-eye Catwalk Sun Style featuring a 3-D Medusa logo detail.

Meanwhile, the optical glasses and second sunglass style sport a rounded shape and are available in red, tortoiseshell and black frames. 

We can think of at least one housewife who would love these.
