Miss Petaluma On…Amazing Grace

Some people are born with that extra something which makes their star shine that little bit brighter than the rest of ours.  I’d say, rather confidently, Grace Jones is one of them.  An enigma of voice, body, fashion and fear the 60-something celebrates her birthday (it’s exciting to share my birthday week with someone so spectacular).  The Jamaican-born singer, actress and model took the world by storm in the late 70s, tearing up Studio 54 with the likes of Andy Warhol.  After that she launched album upon album of throaty classics and even starred in a Bond film.  Result for a Spanish Town girl!

I think any woman, yet alone grandmother who dresses as uniquely and shockingly as Jones deserves the kudos.  Albeit with her infamous ‘mad black lady’ reputation, who would dare tell the ‘Feel Up’ singer it’s time for the M&S Classic’s section.  Happy Birthday.
