The London-based model and proud feminist Jess Maybury says her style icons are Grace Jones, Jean-Paul Goude, and even the John Waters actor Divine—“so super glamorous and extreme.” Maybury finds her soul in vintage Jean Paul Gaultier, especially his costumes for Peter Greenaway’s film The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover. She claims she is so lazy that “I never even blow-dry my hair—I just wash my face,” but we bet she would gussy up for a night at her dream destination; asked what decade in the past she would time travel to, she picks the late ’70s, early ’80s, to visit the vogueing ballrooms of New York: “People used to party more!”
