Grace Jones has never stopped being iconic.

During Paris Fashion Week, Jones hit the runway to cap off Zendaya’s collection of new clothing at the Tommy Hilfiger X Zendaya TommyNow show on Saturday, looking incredible in a gold bodysuit and striped blazer.

Jones, who strutted to the tune of her 1981 hit “Pull Up To The Bumper,” was just one of many in the lineup modeling clothes at the show. The models — all of whom were black — represented a wide array of body types and ages in a uniquely diverse showcase of fashion inspired by the ’70s and early ’80s.

Jones, who was born in Jamaica in the ’40s, rose to fame in the ’70s thanks to her success as a model and singer. 

Her storied career only makes moments like this one that much better.

Jones wasn’t the only 20th century icon at the TommyNow show; she was joined by pioneering women including Pat Cleveland, Beverly Johnson, and Veronica Webb, each of whom made huge strides for black women in the fashion industry.
