Throwback Extraodinary Fashionista: Josephine Baker

"Bronze Venus", the "Black Pearl", the "Creole Goddess" some may wonder how did Josephine Baker live up to these nicknames. I can say with grace and style.  I'm always in awe when I gaze at photos of Josephine Baker, a singer, dancer, actress, activist and spy. Her humble spirit about her stunning appearance was caught when she quoted,

"Beautiful?, It's all a question of luck. I was born with good legs. As for the rest...beautiful, no. Amusing, yes."

What I love most about this legendary fashion icon, is that whatever role Baker played off and onstage, she dressed the part and looked effortless. It was extremely hard to choose, but here are a couple of my favorites looks.
