Paris Fashion Week: Zendaya Embraces Saturday Night Fever in First Collection With Tommy Hilfiger

The show for the TommyXZendaya collection kicked off with a disco dance party with stars Janelle Monae, Yara Shahidi and Gigi Hadid looking on.

Zendaya may be recognized as a successful actress-model-singer, but now she can add another accomplishment to her resume: fashion designer. The Greatest Showman star presented her first collection with Tommy Hilfiger to an audience including Janelle Monae, Tyra Banks, Yara Shahidi, Gigi Hadid, Carine Roitfeld and Lewis Hamilton.
The show kicked off with a disco dance party and ended with Grace Jones strutting down the stage.
This TommyXZendaya collection paid homage to the Battle of Versailles, the famous face-off between French designers such as Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent and their upstart American counterparts including Anne Klein and Oscar de la Renta back in 1973.
Versailles turned out to be a seminal moment in sartorial history with the Americans taking the crown and set the stage for black models to come. Those faces turned out in force Saturday night, with Beverly Johnson, Beverly Peele, Pat Cleveland and Veronica Webb strutting and stomping alongside their current counterparts Winne Harlow and Jourdan Dunn.

“I was inspired by these incredible women,” Zendaya told The Hollywood Reporter backstage ahead of the show. “It was a turning point in the industry and the point where black women were finally seen. In some ways, it’s why all of these beautiful young girls are here now, and we wanted to pay tribute to these iconic women.”
“Without them, we wouldn’t be here, without them taking those steps and opening those doors, so it’s about honoring them and appreciating them as well. And we’re just having fun!”
Fun – and frenzied – it was, with a roller derby disco taking place on a light-up stage before the show. Dancers grooved to Diana Ross and Donna Summer. Studio 54 had been transported to the Seine.
Hadid came backstage to congratulate her successor just before the show. “You’re gonna be amazing, you don’t need luck,” Hadid said as the two embraced in a hug.
Hilfiger asked Zendaya to come on board after his collaboration with Hadid because he “knew he had to do something phenomenal because it was so successful,” he told THR. “A movie star, a music star, a TV star and a person with such an incredible reputation at only 23 years old, I was thinking that she would be great for us. What I didn’t realize was that she has her own sense of style which is on another level.” 
Hilfiger says that he gave the actress full creative control. Zendaya found inspiration not only from Versailles but also through old photographs of her grandmother and her personal mood boards. It was a nostalgic moment for Hilfiger. “I loved it because that’s when I started my company. It’s my favorite style – ever.” 
The actress’s collection featured high-waisted flares, slinky disco dresses, satin tops and trenches. The designs showcased a smart take on the era, as they strayed from its more lurid looks (white bell-bottomed and ruffled tuxes, anyone?). Still, the collection featured lots of Lurex, sparkly seventies material that inspires either love or loathing, but overall was a more sophisticated take with twists on staples.
The collection also paid homage to the 1980s with oversized pantsuits bearing broad shoulder pads. The collection was size-inclusive too, with models walking side-by-side next to an outfit variation, meaning slim jeans on one look and a fuller skirt on another.
Jones closed the show in a Lurex leotard, giving a few of her signature slaps towards the audience before Hilfiger, Zendaya and her beloved stylist Law Roach sang along to the Pointer Sisters’ “We are Family” and headed to the afterparty.

Shawn Mendes Promises ‘It’ll Be Okay’ on New Song: Stream It Now

Shawn Mendes mends his broken heart following his high-profile breakup with Camila Cabello on his new song “It’ll Be Okay,” which was released Wednesday (Dec. 1).
He first teased the single via Instagram on Tuesday with a 12-second snippet of him singing, “Are we gonna make it?/ Is this gonna hurt?” over swelling, organ-like synths. He continues singing about patching up the wounds of a lost love in the chorus: “If you tell me you’re leaving, I’ll make it easy/ It’ll be okay/ If we can’t stop the bleeding/ We don’t have to fix it/ We don’t have to stay/ I will love you either way/ Ooh-ooh, it’ll be oh, be okay/ Ooh-ooh.”

“It’ll Be Okay” arrives just two weeks after Mendes and Cabello announced their breakup after the all-star couple had been dating for more than two years. The pop stars, who hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 together with “Señorita” in 2019, released a joint statement addressing their split, promising fans that they “started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.”
The song also marks Mendes’ first solo music release since his fourth studio album Wonder, which he released almost exactly a year ago on Dec. 4, 2020, and topped the Billboard 200. He’ll be taking Wonder all around the world during his 2022 tour, which kicks off its European leg in spring before heading Stateside next summer with openers Dermot Kennedy and Tate McRae.

John Ivey Promoted at iHeartMedia, Will Hand Over KIIS FM Program Director Duties

Programming veteran John Ivey is moving up at iHeartMedia. Effective immediately, Ivey will take on the role of president of CHR (Contemporary Hits Radio) content development and strategy.  
In his new role, Ivey will focus on the recruitment, training, deployment and career growth of talent across all of iHeart’s CHR stations. In addition, Ivey will work closely with executive vp of talent development Dennis Clark to coach and develop talent.  
Ivey takes on the new role after being named president of CHR programming strategy in 2017. With the new promotion, he’ll be stepping down as program director at powerhouse Los Angeles station KIIS FM, a job he’s held for 20 years, with a successor to be announced tomorrow. Ivey will continue reporting to Tom Poleman, chief programming officer and president of the national programming group for iHeartMedia. 
“For over 20 years, John has been a key part of our successful Los Angeles market and our CHR stations across the country,” said Poleman in a release. “Now he will step into another integral role within iHeart – a role which represents that iHeart is a talent-first company dedicated to building the skills, capacity and drive of our nationally-recognized on-air personalities. John’s extensive experience in programming and his credibility within the industry are perfect for leading and elevating this initiative.” 
Throughout Ivey’s tenure as KIIS FM program director, the station has maintained large audiences with hit shows including the morning show On Air with Ryan Seacrest. Ivey has also been instrumental in securing top-tier talent for iHeartRadio’s KIIS FM Jingle Ball and Wango Tango, two of the largest live radio events of the year. This year’s Jingle Ball will include performances from Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X and Kane Brown.  
“My mother took me to a radio station for the first time on my sixth birthday. The PD of that station, Mrs. Potter was my first mentor. Next was my first PD, Steve Hagen and later the legendary Steve Rivers. Now it’s my turn to focus on talent first at iHeart,” said Ivey in a release. “Thanks to Bob Pittman for always supporting me and allowing me to pitch a dream and turn it into a job. I love supporting talent, watching them grow and achieve their goals. Let’s GO!” 
Ivey is a 40-plus year radio veteran and the longest-running program director for KIIS FM. He began his radio career as an on-air personality and music director in his hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky and later led programming efforts for stations in New York, Tennessee and Boston. He joined iHeartMedia Los Angeles in 2001 and throughout his tenure has served in a variety of roles, including vp of programming for the market, program director of KYSR FM and KHHT FM, senior vp of programming and CHR brand manager for iHeartMedia.
