Whenever a celebrity wants to try their hand at design, it can be a bit tricky. There are success stories, sure, but there are also some collaborations that make you wish a celeb had just stayed in their lane. That, thankfully, is not the case for Zendaya. The actress-singer-dancer-now-designer debuted her first #TOMMYNOW collection for Tommy Hilfiger and to say it was a roaring success is putting it mildly. It’s like she got inside the minds of young fashionistas everywhere and found a way to please them all.

Zendaya told Elle prior to the show that Tommy asked her to do a show with him, and that she could have whatever she wants and do whatever she wants. His exact words: “Go nuts.” Zendaya told him that she wanted to “make a show inspired by the women who made it possible for me to be in the position where I am now.”

She explained: “I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ to them through this show. I said to Tommy, ‘If we do a show, this is what it needs to be about.’ And Tommy said, ‘Great. Go for it.’ And he actually meant it. I mean, look.”

That’s when she gestured to the models ready to hit the runway, all 59 of them, all black, different sizes, ages 18 to 70 — including icons Beverly Johnson, Veronica Webb, Pat Cleveland and Beverly Peele. And then there was Grace Jones, who closed the show with her bold and theatrical trip down the catwalk.

She got the most cheers, for obvious reasons.

Grace wasn’t the only amazing takeaway from this. People were here for it, the show and the fabulous fashion.

Yes, let’s talk about the other reason we’re loving Zendaya: her collection. It was basically one giant disco inferno, bringing that classic ’70s look back with some modern twists. The disco dresses, high-waisted, wide leg pants, and all the suits, from classic and neutral, to shiny and stripey, to all-over paisley, it was all stunning. The best part of all, though? This is only the beginning for Zendaya.

So are we, Zendaya. So are we.
