Grace Jones (1948)

Born in Jamaica, Grace Jones moves to the United States in 1965 and rejects the strict religious education she has received.  At the age of 18, she settles in Paris and becomes a model, sharing an apartment with Jessica Lange and Jerry Hall, collaborating with such designers as Azzedine Alaia and Kenzo Takada. In 1979, the sculptural black panther meets Jean-Paul Goude who helps her forge her iconic androgynous personality with audacious photographies and turns her into a 1980s key figure, dancing at the Palace and the Studio 54. In 1977, she becomes a disco and new wave singer and releases a cult version of Edith Piaf's La Vie en Rose.
