#TBT: Iconic Moments in Beauty...


#TBT: Iconic Moments in Beauty History 🌟 A GEENIE series giving flowers to the women and femmes whose beauty and talent sparkled and reigned supreme over time. Today we're honoring model, actress, singer, songwriter, and record producer - Grace Jones ✨ The Moment: We're taking it back to the late 70s (again! so many inspiring beauty moments in one decade!) - 1977 to be exact. And of course the legendary @gracejonesofficial sprang from that 70s cultural milieu - blessing us across fashion, music, beauty and film/tv. πŸ“Ί We're tuning in to her live performance on Dutch television program, TopPop. The song of choice: A cover of Γ‰dith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose" - French for "Life in Pink", featured on Grace Jones's debut studio album "Portfolio". The fit is perfect for the track: a stunning floor-length pink & purple-toned shimmering sequins gown that glistens off the studio lights perfectly accessorized by double slinky-esque silver bangles on both wrists. And the makeup lewk is a whole moment on it's own: warm red tones on the eyes, black eyeliner elongated from the inner corner all the way out to a wing, and a glossy two-toned pout giving an ombre effect via a dark liner with red lipstick blended in the center. *SWIPE* left to view the jaw-dropping lewk and performance in one, πŸŽ₯ via Oxygene 80 (YouTube). In the modern age of music streaming apps, "La Vie En Rose" is Grace Jones's most streamed song to date 🎢 Grace’s aesthetic and presence has always given Afro-futuristic vibes, and pushed past and redefined the masculine and feminine binaries so characteristic of the times. Truly the beauty pioneer that has inspired so many of our favs today. Drop some πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ for Grace Jones below!
