Josephine Baker was awesome in just about every way it's possible for a human being to be.

I'm not much of a fashion geek, but while Googling stumbled across a piece about Josephine Baker in the Hearst publication edited by Carine Roitfeld, CR Fashion Book, which was pretty interesting if you don't mind historical NSFW images: Remembering Josephine Baker's Cultural Impact, Banana Skirt and Beyond.
