Iconic Beauty-

Over the past few decades we've had very few fashion trendsetters come in and break the rules leaving little room for competition. When fashion icon (super model turned disco queen) Grace Jones surfaced (in the early 70's and late 80's) with an androgynous, provocative, and daring style - rarely is that something easily forgotten. Let us not forget that before Madonna, Lady Gaga, or Rihanna, there was Grace Jones! Paired up with super illustrator/photographer/director Jean-Paul Goude Miss Jones influenced fashion designers, artists (muse of Andy Warhol and Keith Haring) and inspired fashion trends world-wide. Grace Jones style mission was to implement avant garde fashion as an extension of her music, in which that image quickly became her label. Grace Jones is no doubt a trendsetter of her era - with a rare gender-bending and iconic style not easy to duplicate! Let us pay homage to the true Lady Gaga. Grace Jones is the original. ♥ x
