“..making a substantial dent in the annuals of pop history..” – Harper’s Bazaar, Jody Watley 1988 photographed by legendary Francesco Scavullo.
“The label at the time didn’t want to pay the fare for the trip to New York, not understanding how appearing in a fashion magazine would help sell records or raise the artists profile..but I knew, so I paid for the trip myself. It wouldn’t be long before labels would soon get it. I was familiar with the work of Scavullo because he’d photographed one of my inspirations growing up Diana Ross and I was an avid reader of VOGUE from childhood because my Mom always bought it. ” – Jody Watley
