Immortal Muse- Josephine Baker
(June 3, 1906 – April 12, 1975)
Dancer, singer, and actress.
Josephine Baker was a truly inspirational woman. She broke down barriers and fought through prejudice.
Baker dropped out of school at the age of 12 and lived as a street child in the slums of St. Louis, but that didn’t stop her travelling to France to progress her career.
She was the first female African American to star in a major motion picture and she became a world-famous entertainer, even posing for the artist Picasso.
Ernest Hemingway called her "… the most sensational woman anyone ever saw."
Baker is still influential in the fashion world today.
Here are some examples from Tush Magazine - Photographer Ellen von Unwerth, hairstyling from Christoph Hasenbein and make-up from Loni Baur.
