My boyfriend and I watched A View to a Kill (1985) recently and I loved Grace Jones' costumes (she played Mayday). After doing a bit of online research I discovered the inimitable Azzedine Alaïa designed her entire wardrobe for the film.

He is also featured in this month's Interview magazine. Read the full article here.
