And then there was GRACE!

Grace Jones...Supermodel, Actress, Songstress, Trend Setter...LEDGEND!

Grace Jones is absolutely stunning! As muse to Andy Warhol, Grace Jones took the New York modeling and fashion world by storm in the 1970’s. To be honest I had never heard of her until my mother mentioned that Lady Gaga's fashion style had a resemblance to the way grace Jones dressed back in the day. This comparison sparked my interest, and I decided to do some research on Miss Jones.

I guess it can be said that she was the "Gaga" of the 70's and 80', but I think she was more than that. Miss Jones was definitely before her time, with her androgynous look, her outrageous over the top sultry outfits and her "flat top" hair cut. I was surprised to find out, that she played a villain/lover role in the Bond movie A View to Kill...yes...before Hally Berry was a bond girl! This Jamaica born supermodel also topped the Billboard charts with singles from several albums; she won an MTV Video Award for best female video, and starred in numerous movies. Grace Jones is a fashion legend in her own right! If you take a look at her photos, you will understand why. Enjoy.

Check out her gloves in this interview below. Fabulous!
