Timeless model Grace Jones steals the show in a gold bodysuit and thigh-high boots as she walked the runway for Zendaya during Paris Fashion Week. The 70-year-old joined an all-Black cast that included other pioneer models in the riveting 70's inspired show.


She’s 70 years old and yet Grace Jones reigned the catwalk on this year’s Paris Fashion Week.

The 5 ft 10 model slash songstress who began her career in the 70’s defied her age when she strutted down the runway at the Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya show on Saturday.


Sashaying to the beat of her 1981 single “Pull Up To The Bumper,” Jones dazzled the audience at the show’s close wearing a glittery gold bodysuit by actress/designer Zendaya. The skimpy creation flaunted her perfectly toned figure as her bare long legs took center stage in thing-high red leather boots with towering heels. The look was completed by a wide metallic rose gold belt matched with a shimmery rainbow jacket.


Jones, who famously performed with her body covered in white paint in last year’s Bestival, met with Zendaya at the end of her stint before dancing to the success of the show. Soon after, the entire cast, all women of color, returned to the runway and paraded to the tune of “We Are Family.”


The choice to include Jones in the show couldn’t be more on point especially since Zendaya, as the new global ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger, intended to celebrate women empowerment across generations through her 70’s-inspired creations. The 22-year-old told Vogue,

"The most important thing to me is that these clothes feel timeless, and whoever puts it on feels powerful and confident."


Joining Jones in celebrating timelessness on the catwalk was pioneer model Beverly Johnson who’s now 66 and became the first African-American to be featured in the cover of American Vogue. 68-year-old Pat Cleveland who was deemed the world’s first black supermodel and 54-year-old Veronica Webb, the first African-American to secure a cosmetics contract, were also part of the show.


Proud of what she’s accomplished, Zendaya later tweeted,

“I’m still in shock and so emotional and moved by this show…I’m speechless. Thank you a million times.”

Guests also raved about the energy-filled production including Tyra Banks who lauded Zendaya for her efforts to celebrate women of color. This is especially relevant since the move comes at a time when famous designers like Gucci and Prada have been slammed for their blackface-inspired products.
