Now that I’m in my 40s, I’ve been looking for role models of older women to pattern myself after.  Grace Jones is on the list, right up there with Tina Turner and Eartha Kitt.  Grace is every bit of 60+, but she is just as beautiful and ridiculous as ever.  This 2011 performance is proof positive that this woman has not lost one bit of flair.
