Life Exotic The Grace Jones Way!


Grace Jones’ over-the-top melange of ‘Caribbean-African-beyond edgy-glamour' has and will always be flat out fabulous! If you daring doll should reference her cutting edge style, and if done right the result can be indescribably elegant and composed, like a beautiful collage put together by a brilliant artist, which essentially, it was. So pay attention, you un-minimalist! And let’s start with how to capture the very joie-de-vivre - don't me bite you - heavily adorned look: You want chunky, tribal, feathers, and beads. You want shape , graphic black/white/brown hues and things that look authentically sourced from the futuristic 3080 Nile. If you’re a little wobbly or unsure, make the most decadent piece your shoesfootwear has become so much of an art form, even nuns and gym teachers can rock some feather-spangled gladiators without a second thought. From there, add 'don't play with me' eye and lip make up with some major earrings. Now, obviously, the major danger is getting all cluttered up. So, now get the hair textured and sleek, just enough bare skin—be it legs or arms, or both. Now the city is your jungle to rule....
