Harper's Bazaar said Jones was among the 59 black women ages 18 to 70 who participated in Saturday's unveiling of designer Tommy Hilfiger and actress Zendaya's first clothing collaboration.
"I feel like we are paying homage to these women who changed our legacy, and who allowed me and so many others to be here," Zendaya said before the show, according to The New York Times.
Zendaya, 22, tweeted a photo of Jones wearing a yellow bodysuit, red boots and a metallic jacket as she sashayed down the runway.
"...speechless," Zendaya captioned the image.
Zendaya's credits include The Greatest Showman, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Shake It Up.
Jones, 70, has starred in the films Conan the Destroyer, A View to a Kill and Boomerang.
