Jody Watley Thursday Classic. A Chat With Dick Clark on Iconic TV Show American Bandstand.

Music. Fashion. Everything.

In 1987 after performing one of my hits from solo debut.. I think it was my second time from that album, chatting with Dick Clark on his American Bandstand. Music – Fashion – Jody Watley Style. I remember vividly Patti Labelle telling me at an American Music Awards “..a lot of people don’e get your style, but I do – It’s magazine baby, Magazine!”

Always be yourself whether people get you or not, has always been my thing.

 

Blessed to still be here – still a thrill being myself and doing what I love

 

Jody Watley Classic Photo Of The Day. Hot Chocolate and Gaultier.

We saw this jeep totally by accident while scouting locations on a photo session for my tour book in 1989. It was too good to pass up. The shot only took a few minutes, renegade style and we were out of there.

All self styled – my vision was for the tour book  to be all about a fashion editorial aesthetic and nothing like any tour book photo’s I’d seen with my own sense of style and individuality captured. Although not included in the current Gaultier exhibition, I was an early supporter of his designs as seen in a lot of my early photo’s and video’s, and as early as 1984 discovering him while living in London.  Although this was decades ago, it’s totally timeless; picture Rihanna, Solange or one of today’s young fashionable artists – would still work.
