Henny, I was thinking the same thing while watching The Heathers’ Lady Marmalade video. #shewastherewhennooneelsewas
My junior prom with my highschool sweetheart. I spent $5 at Kauffman’s on that dress. My hair (that I had bleached for the first time the day before prom… my scalp was so sore! But I wanted Marikyn Monroe/ Debbie Harry platinum blonde hair. Didn’t get it quite at that level at that point.) and that silver with blue rhinestone dog collar were a different story! Haha #tbt
Zelda Wynn Valdes was the first black female fashion designer to own her own boutique. Her famous, figure hugging silhouette was worn by stars such as Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Joyce Bryant, Maria Cole, Edna Robinson and later superstars like Gladys Knight and opera diva Jessye Norman. She also designed dresses for legendary figures like Marlene Dietrich and Mae West.
Valdes came up with the costume for the Playboy Bunny which remains the same to this day.
Here is a pic of Grace Jones shoving cake into Divine’s mouth at what I believe was Grace’s 30th birthday party…you’re welcome!
It’s like “The Creation of Adam,” but relevant to my interests.
