Grace Jones has remained a legend at every turn of her nearly 40-year legacy. After cementing her spot as a fashion icon in the early 70s (smashing runways for the likes of Yves St. Laurent, Claude Montana, Kenzo Takada and a slew of others) the Jamaican-born, NYC transplant made a dazzling entrance into the world of music with her debut record Portfolio in 1977, and has left the world quivering in the wake of an endlessly dynamic creative output ever since, ranging from music exploits to film to fashion and transcending them all.”
