Grace Jones, 70, Steals The Show in a Glitzy Gold Bodysuit And Rainbow Jacket as Tommy Hilfiger Show Pays Tribute to Fashion Icons of The Seventies

She rose to fame as a modelling sensation in the early 70s before kick-starting her music career.

And Grace Jones made a glorious return to the catwalk during the Tommy Hilfiger X Zendaya Paris Fashion Week show on Saturday, as the collection pays tribute to fashion mavens from the golden era of the 1970s.  

The 70-year-old songstress managed to steal the show, alongside runway stalwarts including Winnie Harlow and Jourdan Dunn, as she donned a glittering gold bodysuit which showcased her age-defying physique to perfection. 

She displayed her toned pins in a pair of red leather thigh-high boots, as she jaunted down the catwalk in the perilously high heels, putting on an incredibly animated performance for those sitting in the audience.

5ft 10in Grace’s look was complete with a metallic rainbow jacket, which she layered over her skin-tight bodysuit, cinched with a thick rose gold belt around her lithe waist. 

The Slave to the Rhythm singer, who brought the show to a sensational close, strutted her way down the runway to the tune of her 1981 hit single Pull Up To The Bumper before meeting actress-come-designer Zendaya at the end where they enjoyed a boogie together.

The audience at Tommy Hilfiger’s SS19 catwalk show were treated to an appearance by the one and only Grace Jones during Paris Fashion Week.

The superstar strutted down the runway in a statement ensemble, which included a metallic blazer, bodysuit and thigh-high boots. Wowza!

Grace’s make-up consisted of a dramatic black smokey-eye, while she added light touches of foundation which only enhanced her glowing complexion, along with a deep cranberry lip.

The icon’s appearance came after Zendaya revealed that her clothing line was an ‘ode to female empowerment’, so it’s no surprise that Grace was asked to close her show as years before the #TimesUp campaign Grace was advocating for herself and equal pay.    

Speaking of the collaboration, Zendaya told Vogue: ‘The most important thing to me is that these clothes feel timeless, and whoever puts it on feels powerful and confident.’ 

Grace’s album Island Life went to number four in the UK charts in 1985, the same year she appeared opposite Roger Moore in the James Bond film A View To A Kill.

Her dazzling dress featured a slit up the thigh as well as one along the sleeve of her dress, which she teamed with a pair of gold strappy sandals but otherwise kept accessory free.

Taking further inspiration from the funky era, Jourdan wore her raven locks in big bouncy curls, while opting for a glamorous coat of make-up including a striking deep red lip.
