GRACE JONES: STILL A SLAVE TO THE RHYTHM

One cannot exaggerate how important Grace Jones was to the music and fashion world in the late 70’s and 80’s. Hers was the nightclub act everyone wanted to see because of her extravagance, androgyny, and just plain outrageous demeanor. Experiencing Grace Jones‘ act on New Years Eve was as good as it gets. Of course she was the toast of Studio 54. (Grace was always fun to gossip about: For a few years she was dating Dolph Lundgren – whom she discovered as a door man- and once during a spat she set his pants on fire!) The La Vie En Rose singer appeared at the Toronto Film Festival, looking remarkably unchanged, for the premier of a documentary about her life.

RIHANNA DIDN’T DO IT FIRST, BUT SHE DOES IT WELL

Our observant colleague at The WOW Report, James St James, pointed out the similarities between Rihanna’s new zebra video look and the idea as originally done by the amazing Grace Jones. Imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery.

It’s always a delightful to run into the legendary Grace Jones. She arrived at the Chateau Marmont Globes party looking every inch an awesome diva. This is not a word we use lightly. It’s no surprise that Grace is Lady Gaga’s fashion idol. Love the flirty hat – and the jacket looks like warm leatherette….

GRACE JONES PULLS UP TO THE BUMPER

Anyone who loves fashion will be knocked out by Grace Jones’ visual aesthetics on her current concert tour. Besides all the great songs, Grace puts on a fashion show of around a dozen costume changes and each revelation is more remarkable than the last. The person responsible for these avant-garde creations is visual artist Eiko Ishioka from Tokyo, a brilliant and award winning costume designer. You get MORE than your money’s worth with this concert, so if Grace comes to your town, try to see her. She might even show up on time.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
