STATE OF GRACE

Fashion (Canada) - - Index -

Since her mod­el­ling start in the 1970s, Grace Jones has be­come one of pop cul­ture’s most in­trigu­ing women. Ru­mours cir­cu­lated of her

ar­riv­ing naked at Stu­dio 54, regularly pulling fits on fa­mous names

and up­stag­ing events with her in­tense be­hav­iour. Jones’s ca­reer re­ally took off when she fo­cused on film and mu­sic. With the help of col­lab­o­ra­tors such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Paul Goude, Trevor Horn and Chris Black­well, her al­bums would al­ter the bor­ing sta­tus quo of elec­tronic mu­sic. Her new au­to­bi­og­ra­phy—I’LL NEVER WRITE MY MEM­OIRS—re­veals sen­sa­tional in­sight on her mu­si­cal,

mod­el­ling and act­ing ca­reer. —E.I.
