January Jones likes the "challenge" of red carpet dressing.

The 'Mad Men' actress - who is the face of Italian luxury fashion house Versace -loves the challenge of finding a nicer outfit than her previous award show efforts but, she thinks being judged by what she wears is "silly".

She said: "I enjoy being given the challenge of, 'Wow, that was the best dress I've ever seen in my life, how am I going to up myself next time?

"Those red carpets, they're so ridiculous, the judgement that goes along with what you're going to an awards show is so silly that you have to have fun and take risks or it becomes really boring. I approach the way that I work the same way - I always want to challenge myself."

The 33-year-old beauty also admitted while she keeps her figure trim by enjoying an active lifestyle, she won't deny herself her favourite foods when she has a craving for calorific treats.

January added: "I like to be outdoors, I like to play tennis and hike or swim. If I'm in a city I'm walking everywhere.

"I'm careful with what I eat but I don't deny myself if I feel like a cheeseburger."
