Legendary Grace Jones Features in BBC Documentary


Grace Jones這位時尚經典的影響力絲毫沒有隨著歲月減弱。Diesel於2006秋冬的發表會上便邀請了Grace Jones開場走秀。身穿連身帽外套的Grace Jones,霸氣十足的以她標誌性狂野姿勢,於伸展上邊放聲大吼邊走台步,讓看秀觀眾震懾不已造成話題。Jean Paul Gaultier也於2013春夏系列以誇張的妝容及造型向80年代的巨星們致敬,伸展台上的黑人模特兒都有著Grace Jones的方形短髮和濃烈彩妝;老佛爺也藉由Chanel 2013秋冬高訂,以頭飾方式重現了Jones的方頭以及雌雄莫辨風格,向Grace Jones 致敬。

Versace的2014春夏高訂之中,創意總監Donatella Versace表示,這一次她試著讓女性變得更有力量,但同時保留女性的柔美,而此系列便是以Grace Jones為原型,打造出剛柔並濟的女性形象。而從Versace,可隱約看出是Azzedine Alaïa當時替Grace Jones量身打造的連帽造型所延伸,同時也帶入了大量80年代興盛的Disco元素,有著大量亮片以及水晶裝飾。

而身為Grace Jones名氣最大的粉絲、以及設計總監Donatella Versace的好朋友 — 女神卡卡,當時變身穿連帽款的黑色Versace禮服,向Grace Jones致敬意味濃厚。回想當年女神卡卡剛出道時,也曾被外界抨擊她抄襲Grace Jones造型和作風,女神卡卡則是大方回應,Grace Jones是她的偶像,並表示她從Grace Jones身上獲益良多。時下許多當紅女歌手也都曾公開表示深受Grace Jones影響,包含饒舌歌手Nicki Minaj的「Girls Fall Like Dominoes」一歌之中,也有唱出Grace Jones的名字,以及年輕澳洲女歌星Lorde也曾於採訪中表示非常喜歡Grace Jones。而這位至今依然活躍跨界時尚、藝術、與音樂靈魂人物,據說這過去7年來都參與著紀錄片「Grace Jones – The Musical Of My Life」的製作,回顧其超過40年的精彩生涯,成果令人期待。««

»»BBC Films celebrated its 25th anniversary yesterday and it’s giving everyone a massive present: a feature documentary about Grace Jones, titled “Grace Jones – The Musical Of My Life”, becoming the first ever documentary about the life and times of Jones. The film will be directed by Sophie Fiennes, who is also responsible for The Pervert’s Guide To Ideology, the critically acclaimed 2012 documentary presented by the philosopher Slavoj Žižek. Fiennes’ documentary on Grace Jones has reportedly been in the works for seven years, and BBC Films joins the BFI Film Fund and the Irish Film Board as co-financers. 

Jamaican-born Jones, now 66, started her career in New York, where she pursued modelling. Her striking masculine looks were not the blondes that American fashion magazines preferred back then, and did not make much of an impression. After meeting and falling in love with Jean Paul Goude, he revitalized her image into a fierce, androgynous figure that eventually blew Paris away. After modelling she turned her hand to music and scored a number of successful disco hits, earning many gay and feminist fans alike.

Grace Jones unique sense of style and bombardistic personality has a longstanding influence on fashion. Her most famous collaboration was with Azzedine Alaia in the 80s, where her designed Jone’s most iconic “hooded” look. This look has been seen on the runway of Versace’s SS14 collection, and Lady Gaga, who is a self-professed huge fan of Grace Jones, also wore a hooded number in name of Grace Jones. Look at music today and it’s easy to see where her influence has been felt – artists such as Nicki Minaj to Rihanna to Lorde have surely taken leads from Jones’ fearless approach to feminity and creativity. The film is said to be an observational portrait of a bold woman who changed so much , and we sure are looking forward.««
