Keke Palmer Is the Spitting Image of Grace Jones With a Flat-Top Fade

Keke Palmer isn't afraid to switch up her hair for a bold new look. Palmer delivers each and every time as she did with the braided space buns she wore at the premiere for Insecure's final season, and the curly Afro she showed off on October 20 in an ultra-foxy shoot.

On October 26, the actor shared a recent photo shoot on Instagram in which she channels music icon Grace Jones. With a jet-black power suit, iridescent purple eye shadow, and sky-high, flat-top fade, she perfectly nailed Jean-Paul Goude's portrait of the pioneering artist. (If there was any doubt remaining, let this recreation of Jones at the height of the eighties be the final confirmation that the decade is back again for another round of beauty and fashion trendsetting.)

While it's unclear if this is a Halloween costume or a just-because tribute, Palmer's caption "ART," followed by a trio of black and purple hearts perfectly sums up the inspiration. Using Balmain Hair Couture products, hairstylist Kela Wong created the towering style that doesn't skimp on volume. Wong also took the lead on makeup with a shimmery eye, sculpted cheek, and satin lip, all courtesy of Tom Ford Beauty.

With Halloween just around the corner, we might just follow Palmer and recreate this look for ourselves. After all, a Grace Jones homage is always a crowd-pleaser.
