Zendaya Serves LEGEND Tease With Grace Jones, Beverly Johnson & All Black Models For Tommy X Zendaya Collection In Paris + Valentino Vibes With LaLa Anthony & More

​ ​ ​ ​

This is her year! Zendaya is making a splash in the fashion world. Go inside to see her new Tommy X Zendaya collection modeled by legenardy vets Grace Jones, Beverly Johnson, Pat Cleveland and more inside...



2019 is shaping out to be a successful year for Zendaya.

At just 22-years-old, Zendaya became the newest and youngest global ambassador for Lancôme Beauty. And now, she's flexin' her designer skills in her new collaboration collection with Tommy Hilfiger.

The YBF starlet debuted her first #TOMMYNOW collection during Paris Fashion Week. And she made sure to pay tribute to all the female trailblazers who came before her that helped pave the way for her to be able to fulfill her dreams.

After discussing a collection with her longtime stylist Law Roach, she decided to give the line a try, but she was very particular about how she wanted it done.

"I want to make a show inspired by the women who made it possible for me to be in the position where I am now. Honestly, I just wanted to say 'thank you' to them through this show. I said to Tommy, 'If we do a show, this is what it needs to be about.' And Tommy said, 'Great. Go for it.' And he actually meant it. I mean, look."

And the show was super black. She chose 59 black models, ages 18 to 70, to show off her all-inclusive fashion line.



Pioneering icons Beverly Johnson, Veronica Webb, and Beverly Peele walked the show, along with Pat Cleveland, who said backstage,

"Zendaya talked to me about the Battle of Versailles, about Studio 54 and the '70s and '80s... she really wanted somebody who had been there and lived it on the runway. In a way," she told ELLE. "I think this show is really based on the story of my life."

Oh, and Pat Cleveland also hinted that Zendaya may play her in a movie based on her autobiography. Nice!



Daya specifically noted she wanted legendary model Grace Jones to walk in the show.

"We said, 'we want Grace Jones, she represents so much beauty and power and she needs to be here,'" Zendaya explained to ELLE. "And somehow, Tommy's team made it happen." (Hint: It was with help from casting director Michelle Lee.)



This is 70 by the way. Yessss legend!

Grace loved the line so much, they ended up sending her the entire collection that features body-skimming disco dresses, flared jeans, high-waisted wide-leg pants worn with striped knits, and more.

"She's the first person besides Zendaya to own the complete collection," Law Roach said.


The former Disney star opened up about collaborating with Tommy Hilfiger:

"Everybody has something different that they’re great at," said Zendaya. "We need to learn from people with experience, even as the world changes. I’m still at the beginning of my career, and to learn from Tommy about having a fashion line, that’s incredibly important to me. He’s like the best teacher for that. But it’s also very cool—and I think more rare than you’d realize—to have someone who’s genuinely interested in my point of view, in other women like me and our points of view, and saying, 'What do you have to bring to the table that I can’t?' That’s been the coolest experience to me—feeling like I can show him the perspective I bring to the table, and also feeling like he actually wants to know."
