Fashion Inspiration: Josephine Baker

Pretty recently (like within the past year or so), I have been inspired fashion wise by many different people both past and present. I've decided to share my inspirations every now and then and number one on the list is Josephine Baker.

Josephine Baker is an actress, singer, and dancer who became famous in France but was originally from St. Louis, Missouri. She later became a citizen of France and even helped out in the French Resistance throughout WWII. Baker was also the first African American female to star in a major motion picture and to integrate an American concert Hall. Her accomplishments were pretty amazing, but I also see her as a fashion inspiration.

From her elaborate accessories to her sophisticated and luxurious gowns, Josephine Baker had amazing style and class.


I will always love her style!
She's a true inspiration.
