Celebrity Beauty of the Day: Grace Jones

I've always acknowledged being a huge fan of Ms. Jones. Striking and beautifully unique, there is only one Grace Jones. A few close friends and I giggled like school girls from excitement while attending her spectacular summer 2008 performance at The Hollywood Bowl.

In addition to early music collaborations with Chris Blackwell, Alex Sadkin and Sly and Robbie, Ms. Jones is renowned for having worked with fresh and innovative artistic talent such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jean-Paul Goude and Oscar winning costume designer Eiko Ishioka.
Add to the list of artistic collaborations innovative light artist Chris Levine. With a recently completed exhibition "Grace Jones: Stillness In the Speed of Light" at The Vinyl Factory in London, the Queen of Avant-Garde continues to break new ground.

Look for the new video to "Love You To Life" the third single from Jones' 2008 internationally heralded "Hurricane" album, which will be directed by Levine.

If you're still stuck on her early work, I suggest you rush to update your musical play list with "Hurricane". At 61, the Madame is still incredible musically and artistically.

Love You to Life, I like that. I am guilty of only knowing her earlier work but I shall check out her more recent stuff. It's interesting to see what artist inspire artist like you or others that I have followed through out the years. Cool read, thanx!
