Do you remember this queen? She starred in the movie, ‘Boomerang’ alongside Eddie Murphy and Halle Berry. Ms. Jones played an interesting yet comical role in the movie and killed it! I’m smiling just thinking about her shenanigans, but I digress.
So one thing I didn’t realize at the time was she wasn’t just making a splash on-screen but off-screen too, as a runway model. She signed on as a model in New York, but it was Paris where her career took off as the Parisian scene was more receptive to her unusual, androgynous, bold, dark-skinned appearance.
Ms. Jones quickly advanced her career doing runway modeling work for Yves St. Laurent, Claude Montana and Kenzo Takada and also appeared on the covers of Elle, Vogue and Stern.
Hats off to this queen, another beautiful black woman in history!
Loving. Living. Growing.
