The Astonishing Slaying Power Of Grace Jones Through The Years

She is EVERYTHING.

Though Grace Jones famously sang "I'll never write my memoirs," the pop culture icon has changed her mind. And boy are we glad she did.

On Sept. 29, Jones will debut her highly anticipated autobiography and offer the world an unprecedented glimpse into her sensational life. We can't wait to hear about her days at Studio 54 and running the streets of Paris with Jerry Hall and Naomi Campbell. To say that Jones is a legend in the worlds of music, fashion and style is an understatement.

Let's just say the 67-year-old is often imitated, but can never be duplicated. And Jones' signature androgynous look and eye-popping ensembles continue to wow and inspire us to this day.

With that said, in celebration of the age-defying Jamaican-born beauty's book release, we've rounded up 28 images of the star that prove she is everything and more.
