LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Striking a pose at the London premiere of 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery' during the 66th BFI London Film Festival at the Royal Festival Hall was Grace Jones who donned a striking blue headgear. The 74-year-old, known for her unique outfits, fashion avatars, and role in avant-garde pop culture, turned heads, looking ageless as ever.
The Bond girl, having starred in 'A View to a Kill' as May Day, was spotted in a smart black blazer and matching trousers that hugged her figure at the premiere. She accessorized her outfit with lace-up high-heeled fur boots that accentuated her towering height. A pair of navy blue gloves and tinted shades completed her look.
Jones' influence as a style icon is undisputed. Her androgynous, square-cut appearance went on to usher in a new wave of cross-dressing in the 1980s. The model has often been hailed as a fashion icon, with new-age celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Annie Lennox, and Lorde drawing inspiration from her looks.
The highlight of Jones's outfit was the shiny blue headgear with tassels that cascaded down to her shoulders. Makeup with bold shades accentuated her strong androgynous features, paired with her blue shades. Her all-black outfit served to display her stunning physique, even in her 70s.
Following her career as a model, she transitioned to music. Jones also delivered several top hits like 'Private Life', 'Pull Up The Bumper', 'I've Seen That Face Before' and 'Slave To The Rhythm', across genres of reggae, funk, post-punk and pop music. Jones had ranked 82 on VH1's '100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll' in 1999.
The 74-year-old went on to garner further fame and recognition when she starred in movies like 'Conan the Destroyer' alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sarah Douglas. She essayed the role of May Day in the James Bond movie 'A View to a Kill'.
Jones made a red carpet appearance during the final day of the London Film Festival.

The movie boasts an ensemble cast comprising Daniel Craig, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, and more. The movie is scheduled to release on November 25, 2022.
