We came across the image and it took our breath away! When it comes to beauty, class, edge and jazz, how can we ever forget the woman behind the woman that wore the banana skirt and pearls? Before there was Grace Jones and “her dare to be different” posing and unique and artistic style, there was Miss Josephine Baker and she was fabulous!
A woman of class and substance, “La Baker” was an amazing muse for some of the most recognized and influential artist in the world which included Langston Hughes, Pablo Picasso and Christian Dior. Famous for her burlesque dancing and her banana skirt dance for the stage play, Danse Sauvage, Ms. Baker was also a lady who believed in equality and before there Angelina Jolie, she adopted 12 children to show that people and live and grow in harmony becoming brothers and sisters.
