Never has there been a performer in pop music with such an unapologetic, in-your-face
Never has there been a performer in pop music with such an unapologetic, in-your-face style like Grace Jones. The Jamaican stunner made a name for herself as a singer, but she will always be remembered for her avant-garde, androgynous ensembles. With impossibly long legs, killer cheekbones and a striking, classically, beautiful face, the fashion world fell head-over-heels for her.
Grace could have easily been content with just being a pretty face, but she had the guts to stray from the conventional definition of beauty. What other female could rock a flat top with such panache in the 70’s? Years later, her unique hairstyle would become a trend among Black men in the 1980’s. Right now in fashion, we have been experiencing a huge Grace Jones revival. Strong shoulders, studs, harem pants, slinky separates, bustiers, fetish inspired clothes, and lots of leather were all Grace Jones trademarks.
