“If there’s not a seat there, go create your own table!,” Zendaya told audiences at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference back in October and true to her word, the star is blazing her own trail. With a show at the Comédie & Studio des Champs-Elysées, the landmark theater, she introduced the world to her Tommy x Zendaya collaboration, a luxe ‘70s-inspired collection, while showcasing the talents of a global cast that reflected all shades of blackness.

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

Similarly, there is no one ideal image of a black woman -- each is gorgeous in her right. All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance. And, like the graceful butterfly, the awakened black woman exemplifies the dazzling beauty of that cultural evolution.
