Sweet Full-Sized Halloween Treats

Grace Jones as Almond Jones, a luscious, life-sized candy treat in dark chocolate — the work of photographer and fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez.

I have to wonder why Lopez didn’t put Jones in a Mounds wrapper… As kids, we were always talking about nude (or at least topless) black girls singing, “I love my mounds in  deep dark chocolate.” Even if Jones has smaller mounds than some, they are still mounds; not nuts or almonds. Although a great number of nuts have busted over Jones, that’s for sure.

Anyway…

Candy Bar Girls was an early series of photographs by Lopez.

The series began in 1976; one of the shots with Grace Jones made it to the June 1979 cover of Lui.

The only Candy Bar models that I can identify is Rita Tellone. Tellone not only appeared in Penthouse (October 1978) and Sports Illustrated (1981), but in the film Eyes of Laura Mars (1978).

The girls in candy bar wrappers performance was repeated at the launch party of Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex and Disco (2012).
