What is inspiring me now....

Josephine Baker, the beautiful African American dancer & singer was the first African American to start in a major motion picture. In the 1920’s she shocked audiences with her minimal, close-to-nothing dresses and her new and sensual dance moves.
In late 20's early 30's she was influent in many intellectual circles, her work was seen by artists as Mondrian and she was Christian Dior’s muse. With more than 1500 marriages proposal and an affair with Frida Kahlo I surely can assume she was a popular gal.

I absolutely LOVE her audacity in this movie. Look the way she ripped her beautiful dress to be able to dance more comfortably
