Who: Grace Jones and Keith Haring
When: The 80's
For: The 1986 Film Vamp, Grace Jones single "Im Not Perfect" and More.
Why We Love Them: As fans of the postmodernism movement and pop art; to us, this is one the best and most influential collaborations in the 20th century. We wish we could time travel to spend at least one day with these two and Andy Warhol's Factory crew

ultimate body to paint — Grace embodying both primitive and pop, Harings
obsessions." (
