Grace Jones is truly a style icon that many draw inspiration from, and with it being her 62nd Birthday yesterday, she is an icon not to be reckoned with regardless of age.

Janelle Monae, Rihanna and Janet Jackson have all pulled off the tuxedo, bow tied, brogue wearing, androgynous look before and it is Grace Jones who I believed embraced this style to the fullest.

Her ebony skin, flat top hair, padded soldiers, fierce eyes, bold smile and bold style are features that stood out for three decades, especially amidst times when it was socially favourable to be of a lighter complexion, with even this belief still whittling down to our generation today.

 

He face is of a work of art, being of such an angular and structured nature, with her clothes and style embracing these terms too.

She truly is a Black Sculpture!
