Lily as Grace Jones
My daughter as Grace Jones: Grace Jones was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica but moved with her family to New York when she was twelve years old. Born into a very strict family religious family, Jones would rebel and go on to become a model, musician and muse. Her androgyny, sharp cheekbones and fearlessness caught the attention of many when she danced in the legendary Studio 54 or stalked the catwalks of New York and Paris. She inspired designers like Helmut Lang and artist like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. She was James Bond villain named May Day in A Veiw to a Kill and starred in Conan the Barbarian with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Hits like Slave to the Rhythm and Pull Up to My Bumper display her vocal range and her ability to be present stunning and thought-provoking imagery to the world. People still look to her for inspiration because in a world of derivatives, she is a true original.
