      I don’t think it’s “kinda”, I think it’s a definite inspiration/allusion to the great Grace Jones. But I like that it’s *so* well-done!

    Definitely a Grace Jones inspired look! She looks very statuesque in these shots. I luvd the last pic especially. Not every one has to look like an “over made up Barbie doll” to look beautiful, and kate proves that perfectly. She rocks the haircut cos she’s got amazing cheekbones and an angular face that’s a makeup artist’s dream….Since am rocking a similar haircut, I say: Go kate!!!!!

  18. Gosh!

    Grace Jones will be very proud! This chick is more than amazing!!!!
