The year was 1983. That's before Lady Gaga was born. The bad boy of funk, with his long braids — short strands in front — and the outrageous Jones had a really good time together mugging for the cameras at the Grammys.

He was in a shiny long-sleeve textured cardigan held together by a belt, paired with a studded bandanna and joggers. Jones wore an open weave vinyl-like tunic with spaghetti strands that left little to the imagination. On her head was an umbrella-shaped matching hat, on her hands long black gloves.

While we've lost James, Jones is alive today breaking fashion barriers.
