May 19, 2017

“AMAZING GRACE“ is Amsterdam based visual artist AiRich and stylist Stefhanie Blokland’s tribute to icon Grace Jones for her 69th birthday. Teaming up with model JNM The Naked MC to bring Jones’ electricity and unflinching confidence to life, it was important to the team stay true to Grace’s person throughout production. ”It was almost scary at times because the looks she gave during the shoot made it feel like she truly dipped into Jones’ character. It felt like she, “The Diva herself” was really there with us,“ the team tells AFROPUNK.
