Grace Jones + Eiko Ishioka

Last night I was lucky enough to see the amazing, incomparable Grace Jones in concert at my brother in law's annual music festival here in Helsinki, Flow. She changed costumes for every song -- each costumed designed by Eiko Ishioka, award winning costume designer. Google image Eiko if you have a moment, you'll be floored and inspired.

Grace has an amazing figure and those legs go on forever. Her voice is strong as ever and she even hula hooped for an entire song. The best part for me was that the show was like watching a fashion shoot set to music -- every move was gorgeous, every pose thoughtful and gorgeous. She even had 2 wind machines to move her clothing and headpieces around. Fucking brilliant!

If you have the opportunity to see Ms Jones, don't miss it.
