Paloma Ford stars in fashion designer Tia Adeola’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection for her namesake label alongside a fashion film titled “Black is Beautiful” (Le Noir Est Beau). She is joined alongside Flo Milli and many more. A continued exploration into Renaissance art and historical studies, the film also showcases a heavy influence from Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film, Marie Antoinette, but reinterpreted to feature an all-Black female cast.
Speaking on the collaboration, Paloma Ford said, “Black is Beautiful has many messages and inspiring undertones that can be highlighted. I love that even though the story showed a rivalry—a protagonist and antagonist—Tia was adamant in not showcasing a real victor. It wasn’t about that. In fact, you see us all come together at the end, which is the real message to women.”
She continued, “We come together and we all win. She concludes this beautiful story by depicting strong Black, beautiful, confident women draped in elegant pieces—a literal depiction of style and grace. This is Tia’s brand messaging at its core, but she always finds another way to outdo herself.”
