Grace Jones danced down the runway to “Pull Up to the Bumper” .
Zendaya said the inspiration for her fashion show was the Battle of Versailles fashion show in the 70s, and it was important to include legendary Black models.
“We’re paying homage to these women who changed our legacy…and allowed for me and so many others to be here. I remember when my Vogue cover came out, Beverly Johnson [the first African American model to land the cover of American Vogue] tweeted me congratulations, and I said this wouldn’t be possible without you,” said Zendaya to WWD. “This is about saying we appreciate and love you.”
