Grace Jones’ popularize the square-cut hair in the 1980s. Her first album cover to feature this hairstyle was 1980’s Warm Leatherette. Her VERY PARTICULAR look was/is perfect for the music video medium, photography life-performance. To witness a Jones concert is to be stirred to no bounds by a singularly stylish presence and personage.
She has absolutely served as a catalyzing vehicle and inspiration for loads of other artists, from Annie Lennox, Rihanna to Lady Gaga who is arguably the contemporary heir to Grace Jones.
