The stunning Jamaican Jeneil Williams is featured in Jean Paul Gaultier’s latest ad campaign which is inspired by his pop culture muses of the 70s and 80s.

I love the concept with Jeneil as Grace Jones, Hannelore Knuts as David Bowie, Ginta Lapina as Madonna (wearing a spin on Madonna’s iconic conical bra which Gaultier himself made) and Maria Kashleva as Boy George.

That said, if I had a dollar for every Grace Jones homage (both the good, bad and terrible)… well… I’d have a fair piece of change. Are there no other black fashion muses? Whatcha trying to say fashion industry? *side eye*
