In the course of her lifetime, Grace Jones has worn lots of hats, the two virtually and figuratively The Jamaican-born and New York-lifted performer is the primary multi-hyphenate. With her Grecian-like figure and androgynous glance, she was very first signed as a design in the 60s and encouraged the likes of Helmut Newton, Dude Bourdin, and Jean-Paul Goude. Throughout the late 70s and 80s, she grew to become the queen of disco, dominated the roost at Studio 54, and guide the charge for New Wave many thanks to her string of seminal albums – Heat Leatherette, Nightclubbing, Slave to the Rhythm – and later turned a Bond girl and profitable actress and author.
A accurate individualist, Jones’ has taken care of her imitable fashion and razor-sharp wit above the course of six a long time and proceeds to inspire artists each sartorially and musically. Now we celebrate her fashion, her cheekbones, and her unbridled hedonism and worship at the altar of her Grace-ness.
