BIOGRAPHY

Grace Jones was bornon 19 May 1948 in Spanish Town, Jamaican, American. Beverly Grace Jones is a Jamaican singer and actress who was nominated for the Saturn Awards for Best Supporting Actress for her role ‘Conan the Destroyer’, ‘A View to a Kill’, and ‘Vamp’. She is also a Grammy Award nominated musician. A bold girl from an early age, she moved to Philadelphia with a drama professor to work in a play when she was in college. She moved to Paris and joined the fashion industry. The fact that she was not a conventional beauty did not deter the young woman from pursuing a modeling career. Thankfully, the fashion scene in Paris was open towards welcoming her unconventional androgynous looks, dark skin and bony structure into a world dominated by curvy, feminine, and pretty women. She modeled successfully for the likes of Yves St. Laurent, Claude Montata and Kenzo Takada. As a model she was also on the constant lookout for acting opportunities and appeared in a string of low budget movies. The talented woman is a skilled musician who was a part of the ‘New Wave’ movement in the late 1970s. Some of her hit singles include ‘Pull Up to the Bumper’, ‘I’ve Seen That Face Before’, and ‘Slave to the Rhythm’.
