Rose Cordero channels Grace Jones in Paris Vogue

Many black models (and some wannabe arm candy-turned models) have tried but few have truly managed to carry off the numerous Grace Jones tribute fashion editorials that fashion mags are so fond of.

But Rose Cordero comes pretty close in the latest issue of Paris Vogue. The Dominican (Republic that is, not the Eastern Caribbean island) model’s photo spread, styled by Melanie Huynh and photographed by Paola Kudacki, channels the freaky but stylish androgyny of the famed Jamaican singer/model/actress/muse/baddest bitch.

However, try as she might and as fierce as the spread is, Rose just doesn’t have the fierce intensity of Grace… but then again, does anyone?

By Me

island ~ ista
From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
