HARPERS’ BAZAAR ICONS’19: Zendaya Steals The Show In Suit & Tie Menswear Look.

Published

on

In a sea of skin-baring dresses, Zendaya was a style standout at Harper’s Bazaar ICONS in classic menswear — and although Michael B. Jordan wore it first, he says she totally outdid him.

The “Black Panther” wore the exact same printed gray Berluti suit back in February, and upon Zendaya’s arrival this weekend, fans were quick to make side-by-side photo comparisons. On one “Who wore it better?” post, Jordan replied, “Zendaya hands down no contest.”

Opting for more typical glitz and glamour were attendees including Paris Hilton, Tiffany Haddish and Lily Collins. Emily Ratajkowski donned a one-shoulder red number while Shailene Woodley wore a black-and-white getup that took us right back to the 1980s.

The Bazaar ICONS party always coincides with Fashion Week, so it was no surprise to see a slew of A-list models on the guest list. Winnie Harlow arrived at the Plaza Hotel in a dramatic white tulle gown and Adriana Lima showed off her physique in a slinky dress.

Absent from this year’s party were Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, who infamously got into a shoe-throwing dispute during last year’s event.

The Afropunk Festival (commonly referred to as Afropunk or Afropunk Fest) is an annual arts festival that includes live music, film, fashion, and art produced by black artists. The festival made its first debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in 2005, and has since expanded to other parts of the world. Originally co-founded by James Spooner and Matthew Morgan, the festival was inspired by Spooner's 2003 documentary film Afro-Punk, which spotlighted black punks across America and later culminated in a series of live shows entitled "The Liberation Sessions" co-curated by Spooner and Morgan.

The festival originally sought to provide black people an opportunity to build community within the predominantly white punk subculture and to provide a stage for black alternative performers that were not acknowledged in the mainstream and stood outside hip hop, R&B, soul, etc. To attract a wider audience, the festival shifted to include soul music and hip hop, which expanded its target demographic, attracting headliners including Ice Cube, Lauryn Hill, Lenny Kravitz, and Gary Clark, Jr.. Musical performers now represent a variety of genres, primarily known to reflect African-American culture.

Afropunk's changes to its diverse cultural showcase has allowed for the festival to build its masses to 60,000 attendees. Due to festival alterations that deviated from the original Afropunk culture, former co-founder, James Spooner made the decision to end his involvement in 2008. Soon after, Jocelyn Cooper was introduced to the festival as co-organizer, broadening Afropunk Fest to Atlanta, Paris, London, and Johannesburg, South Africa.
