Some Grace Jones-inspired collections or items and Grace Jones’ collaborations : Catch a Fire (the outfits that Cedella Marley designed for the 2012 Olympics’ Jamaican team, in association with Puma, were inspired in part by Grace Jones), Deborah Pagani Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (gold and white diamond « Grace » earrings, inspired by Grace Jones), Etam Spring/Summer 2012 (Grace Jones performed on the catwalk during this presentation), Giorgio Armani Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (Grace Jones featured on the soundtrack of this « Garçonne » show), Hannah Marshall (in 2009, Hannah Marshall, whose creation studio was covered with Grace Jones’ portraits, said that the singer was a great inspiration for her designs), Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2013 (Grace Jones influenced the tuxedos of this show, which was choreographed by Blanca Li; some models in the background took poses inspired by Grace Jones’ « Island Life » cover album, photographed by Jean-Paul Goude ; Grace Jones, portrayed by Jeneil Williams, also appeared in the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2013 campaign, shot by Sebastian Kim), Narciso Rodriguez Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (a mix of Grace Jones’ « Inspiration » featured on the soundtrack of this show), Pinko by Mark Fast Spring/Summer 2011 (collection influenced by Grace Jones and Studio 54).

Moreover, Grace Jones’ style was highlighted in the December 2009-January 2010 issue of « Vogue Paris » (in the « Profil de Grace » shopping selection, photographed by Paola Kudacki and styled by Mélanie Huynh, from page 53 to page 58) ; Noisettes’ Shingai Shoniwa featured, dressed as Grace Jones, in the March 2011 issue of « British Harper’s Bazaar » (in the « Amazing Grace » fashion feature, shot by Txema Yeste, and styled by Nathalie Riddle, from page 272 to page 275) ; in the February 2013 issue of « British ELLE », Anne-Marie Curtis wrote that the Roland Mouret Spring/Summer 2013 Collection was « all power-woman.
