Hair Idol: Grace Jones

There are iconic people and then there are Iconic People. Grace Jones, a Jamaican-American singer, model and actress, is an Iconic Person.

Despite her talents as a singer, actress and model, she's most well known for her look. She's extremely tall (like most models), extremely androgynous and manages to pull off looks Lady Gaga WISHES she could wear.

Music Samples:

Pull Up to the Bumper

I've Seen that Face Before (Libertango)

  1. Ha...Is it bad that I only know her from the Conan movie? Okay, no that's not entirely true, I knew about her modeling work too. I didn't know that she sang, though! Ah and it's perfectly 80's just what I like.

    I always find the best music and hair-spiration through this blog. Not too many black women go for the androgynously fashionable look, and I absolutely admire Grace for doing it. Gives me ideas. :)
