Natural Throwback: Grace Jones

This lady invented FIERCE! I’m sure you know her as Stronge’ but she’s much bigger than that! Grace Jones is a Jamaican-American singer, model and actress.  Securing a record deal with Island Records in 1977 resulted in a string of dance-club hits. In the late 70s, she adapted the emerging electronic music style and adopted a severe, androgynous look with square-cut hair and angular, padded clothes.

During the 1970s she was photographed extensively by Andy Warhol.  During this era she was a regular at New York City’s nightclub Studio 54.  Although her music was not as popular in America, in Europe her profile as a recording artist was much higher. She appeared films in the 1970s and early 1980s: Conan the DestroyerA View to a Kill, VampBoomerang, and finally Wolf Girl.

Everyone has to make their own decisions. I still believe in that. You just have to be able to accept the consequences without complaining.

–Grace Jones
