Grace Jones

Paul Rambali, Face, The, July 1981

Born in Spanishtown, Jamaica, the daughter of an eminent clergyman, Grace Jones moved to Syracuse in upstate New York at the age of 12. A college crush on her drama teacher led her to the theatre and a part in a musical in Philadelphia. She can’t quite believe it now, but she was, in those days, a hippy.
