2015 has been the year of Grace Jones.
The 67-year-old model, singer and actress has made a full on resurgence on the scene after a phenomenal headlining performance at Brooklyn’s AFROPUNK Festival and releasing her highly-anticipated autobiography I’ll Never Write My Memoirs.
In her recently released autobiography she spoke out on her legendary status in pop culture and the trends she set. “Trends come along and people say, ‘Follow that trend’. There’s a lot of that around at the moment: ‘Be like Sasha Fierce. Be like Miley Cyrus. Be like Rihanna. Be like Lady Gaga. Be like Rita Ora and Sia. Be like Madonna.’ I cannot be like them – except to the extent that they are already being like me,” she said. “I have been so copied by those people who have made fortunes that people assume I am that rich. But I did things for the excitement, the dare, the fact that it was new, not for the money, and too many times I was the first, not the beneficiary.”
In honor of Jones’ recent wins, VIBE Vixen has curated and stylized a Grace Jones-inspired fashion spread.
