Grace Jones closed the Tommy x Zendaya runway show in grand style this weekend during Paris Fashion Week. The 70-year-old supermodel, singer and actress sparked excitement as she returned to the catwalk with other pioneering Black supermodels including Pat Cleveland, 68, Beverly Johnson, 66, and Veronica Webb, 54.

Jones strutted the catwalk and smacked her buttocks as the DJ played her 1981 hit song "Pull Up to the Bumper".

The Jamaican-born singer wore a gold bodysuit under a colorful metallic striped blazer and purple leather boots from Zendaya's Tommy Hilfiger line.

Sitting front row was pop singer Janelle Monae who wore a metallic rainbow colored pantsuit from Zendaya's line.

The 59 runway models included familiar faces such as Winnie Harlow (pictured) and Jourdan Dunn.

After Jones hit the runway, all of the models flooded the runway with Zendaya and Tommy as Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" played in the background.

Zendaya dismissed criticism from people who say she exploited Jones.

"I feel like we are paying homage to these women who changed our legacy, and who allowed me and so many others to be here," Zendaya told The New York Times before the show.

"This is a proud and happy celebration of female beauty in all its forms, something which is as important now as it ever was before," she added.

    It's kind of a behind the scenes/during the making of the album Hurricane. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Topic Influencer

    I sure will!

  • LYRICS

    "Jump in the line rock ur body on time....ok I believe u!" I love that man!!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Winnie Harlow looks awful

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Per usual... Cant get with her???

  • LYRICS

    Grandma Grace did that ish!! It would've been nice if Patra sang it live since she did the remake in the 90's and also looks amazing! Either way, this was cool! They should have an ode to the OG runway walkers b/c they did it more for me than Winnie n' them!

  • ShelbyMoore

    I don't even understand how Winnie gets jobs. She's just not a super model...same goes for all of the bishes who were given jobs as "super models" just because of their last name and/or their family's wealth.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I hope to look like Grace when I turn 70...the lady's bad af!!! Jamaican genes are amazing!

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Please explain to me just how did Zendaya exploit Ms. Jones? Cuz, I don't get it. Wew chile, I guess some people just comment just to comment. ??????????

  • Bashi22

    Grace Jones real bomboclatt bad gal. Full of life 70 where.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Exactly!!! Cause the people they're classifying as "Legend(s)" now a day...just ain't it, sis!!

  • Topic Influencer

    ME TOOO. Comes to find out she was trying to find someone to fit for a black history paper and was looking online at folks. Basically old black Hollywood that was instrumental in civil rights. She looked up from that laptop and was like mama who is Harry Belafonte. I semi- lost it.

    *Mr. Belafonte was 92 on Friday.

  • Shamari123

    Grace is EVERYTHING!!! She is stunning at 70! She makes black look so damn beautiful? I aspire to look this graceful at her age God willing??https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/84baac7cd25503124757fe16ac31113b67e523eb78eadd2d7ad96f8a2469d1a9.gif

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Cause she is spotted... I believe if she did not have a skin condition, she would be somewhere posting duck pout pics on social media???

  • Mielle Downey

    Grace is Gawd. She took what she had and turned it into a brand. Tons of personality.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    70 looks GOOD on her BUT that hairstyle does NOT???

  • Pamela

    The legendary Ms Jones. Yes. Each time I see her I can't help but think of that pastor brother of hers and his Loretta.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Grace is actually aging gracefully...she was one scarrry lookin lady byke in the day

  • ShelbyMoore

    I feel the same way. In today's climate, talented people are being overshadowed by nontalented or less talented people because those types outnumber the ones who are actually talented. Real singers are being pushed to the side for autotune. Real models are being pushed to the side for last names and wealth...or in Winnie's case, sympathy.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Ms Jones wouldn’t let anyone exploit her. She is a supermodel and she wore what they gave her. I love her strong spirit.?

  • LYRICS

    LOL! It's funny b/c my dad's side is musically inclined, so there was ALWAYS someone spinning a record, rapping, or some ish going on over there. My auntie was (she still says "is" with her old ass) a rapper and she'd always tell me that "music recycles itself over and over". I never understood as a kid, but when I would go out and buy a cassette tape or a CD, I'd ALAWAY looks to check what sampled was used (b/c it would sound familiar), then I would go purchase the original album by the artist!

    Beetlejuice was one of my fave movies, and I loved how the ghost football players were dancing to "that song", so I harassed every adult I knew until someone told me it was "Shake Senora" by Mr. Belafonte and the rest is history!! I played "Shake Senora" and danced on Friday to celebrate! He is still handsome too!!

  • BingBangBoom

    Good job Zendaya! Round of applause.. Bring em out

  • Topic Influencer

    He IS still handsome. Shake Senora one of my FAVES

    Yassss! I was honored to meet the legendary Grace Jones while I was vacationing in Ocho Rios Jamaica 2 yrs ago, she said she has a condo down there. Trust me folks she is as cool and down to earth as you would assume she'd be. My family and I shared a boat with her, I was smoking a blunt and sharing Appleton Rum with her she is definitely a class act! She said no pictures bcuz she didn't have her "face on" so we respected her wishes. She jumped off the boat and swam in the water with my sisters boyfriend and others and everything but the hilarious part is after the boat ride was over Grace lil old freaky a$$ got my sister's boyfriend's daughter phone number trying to set up a date or some chit, not even gonna lie the girl was a petite big booty heifer with a small waist so Miss Jones had the Jones for her young a$$ for sure! I wonder if they ever linked up..LOL
