she was so ahead of her time. you see her beautiful silver hair? here’s the story behind it:
"The signature silver hair came before she was to perform  with famed dancer Josephine Baker. Bryant didn’t want to be outdone with  one of Baker’s antics and dyed her hair with silver radiator paint. It  wasn’t great for her hair but it worked wonders for her career."
what a stylish fantastic babe.
