Ageism be damned in 2019, because 70-year-old icon Grace Jones just proved age is but a number, modelling and looking like a babetown at Paris Fashion Week yesterday.
Jones graced the runway for the Tommy Hilfiger X Zendaya TommyNow collection, with featured an all-Black casting of models and a collection inspired by the 70s and 80s, which included flares and some goddamn epic platform shoes.
So obviously Jones was the perfect fit to close out the show, where she absolutely pounded the runway to her 1981 hit, ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’ – seriously, she did not hold back.

The show was praised by guests, including Tyra Banks who took to Twitter to applaud Zendaya for her “fierce black women” line-up, which included some of her America’s Next Top Model alumni.
You see my face. I am in Paris. Watching so many fierce black women from all generations of modeling represent our beauty during the #TommyNow show! Some of the newbies are my ANTM babies!! I am so proud of Mizz Designer @Zendaya! pic.twitter.com/QUwyOP89Y1
