Grace Jones

Grace Jones' sharp features and even sharper style have made her a cultural icon.

The phrase "over-the-top" is definitely too tame to describe the Jamaican model-singer-actress' personal style. Her eccentric staple of ensembles consist of sexy bodysuits, floor-sweeping capes, mesmerizing headdresses and any other jaw-dropping fashions you can think of.

Her fearless sense of style and age-defying beauty has inspired us since Grace hit the scene in the 70s and she shows no sign of stopping.

And let's not forget those legs! At an age when most ladies are trying to cover up their legs, Grace still has some of the best stems in the business. Simply amazing!

Happy Birthday, Grace!

In celebration of Grace's 64th birthday this Saturday May 19, check out the slideshow below for a collection of some of our favorite style moments and images of the star.
