At 22 years old, Zendaya is an astonishing multi-hyphenate. She’s an actress/singer/activist and now a fashion designer. During Paris’s Fashion Week, she presented her first #TOMMYNOW collection for Tommy Hilfiger. And while the looks were an enchanting array of disco glitz and slinky glamor, Zendaya also made a statement with her casting.

Fashion is an industry that’s far from inclusive, too often casting aside women of color and anyone over a size 2. But Zendaya’s runway featured an all-Black cast. That’s 59 Black models, ages 18 to 70, including groundbreakers like Beverly Johnson, Veronica Webb, Beverly Peele, Pat Cleveland, and Winnie Harlow.

And for the final look of the show, the one and only GRACE JONES strutted out on stage. The audience online and off went wild.

Zendaya took to Twitter to share what this moment meant to her.
