I thought Rae Dawn Chong was super awesome when I was a kid. She's a Canadian actress featured in many flicks from the late 80's and early 90's such as Beat Street, The Color Purple, Commando and also appearing in the original Melrose Place series. Yes, I will admit wanting to be like her. She was also featured as Mick Jaggers love interest for his video "Just another Night", which pretty much solidifies her as one hot bitch.
