Happy Birthday, Grace Jones!
We’d never reveal a lady’s age, but that won’t stop us from celebrating it. So, many happy returns to Grace Jones, icon, muse and true original, who today celebrates another year. A brief history lesson: decades before a certain other Lady cracked a beat and contemplated her first intrepid headpiece, Grace was blowing up discos with her provocative stage presence and incredible costumes/hats, many courtesy of milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones. Born to an apostolic clergyman in Jamaica, Grace clearly had a higher calling, merging art, fashion and music into a larger-than-life, high-octane persona that has rocked our world for almost three decades. She’s also the true blueprint for a diva, slapping TV hosts years before Naomi even purchased her first mobile phone. Take notes, ladies, but don’t get in her way.
