When I saw Afrobella posting about Grace Jones, I realized that I’ve never really appreciated how dope she – and her figure – are.
Also, it should be noted, that at 64, she still looks better than me.
This… is unacceptable.
Check out Jones in all her not-safe-for-work gloriousness:
This last picture, though… is the one Afrobella posted about. Notice – it’s not full dancer pose, because she’s not actually holding her foot. Compared to her, us dancer-posers are cheating! How’s she holding on, and so still? Check here for more details on the history behind that photo shoot.
Grace, at 64… still looks better than me. How?
In her red latex bodysuit, 5’10” Jones looks astounding, and her workouts with the hula hoop are a big part of that. In 2010 she told the Evening Standard, “I do a little exercise, but I don’t do excessive body-building like when I trained twice a day for a year with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dolph Lundgren.”
Jones isn’t alone in looking to the hula hoop as an integrated part of her routine. Beyonce, Michelle Obama, Marissa Tomei and even basketball icon Shaquille O’Neill are all advocates of hooping, the updated version of the 1950’s hula hoop craze. [source – examiner.com]
