Keeping Up With Miss Jones

Grace Jones is a model, actress and singer but mostly known as an out of this world style revolutionary. Before the likes of Annie Lennox, Lady Gaga and Rihanna there was Grace Jones. Grace Jones has the facial features of a Greek God. Yes, God and not goddess Grace has such a masculine bone structure but she is indeed all woman. This is apparent with her sexy bodysuits, capes with floor sweeping trains and immaculate headdresses.

Her personality is as eccentric as her style. Often crowned the mother of androgynous style, or should I say father rather? Grace Jone’s style revolves around: originality, art, sex and pop culture. Andy Warhol sites Grace Jones as his muse.

Jean Paul Gaultier saluted Grace Jone’s in his Spring 2013 fashion show. As you can imagine Grace Jones was quite the force to be reckon when she stepped foot on the scene in 70s.

Grace Jones with her rebellious wardrobe choices, risqué costume choices and unorthodox hair style is a fashion leader for more reasons than one. There’s a generation of fashion hopefuls following the trends they believed to have been set by their favorite pop icon when they were actually set by this fashion icon decades ago. That type of longevity would not be possible without creativity, originally, fearlessness and innovation. Grace Jones has, is and will continue to lead the style revolution of the fashion industry for years to come.
