I live for Kidada Jones. She is the lessor known daughter of Quincy Jones, sister to Rashida Jones. Kidada isn’t as widely known, but she is a model, actress, and brand ambassador for Disney. She’s well respected in the fashion industry due to her extensive modeling and styling career in the 90’s. I actually found out who she was during a bout of random googling after watching the movie “The Faculty”. She was intended to play Ushers girlfriend in the movie, but her plot line was cute. I further fell in love with her when I found out the flower tattoo she has on her shoulder was once a portrait of Tupac’s face and that she would have been his wife if the unfortunate event hadn’t occurred.
None the less, she that was Hilfigures muse, Aaliyah’s homie, and a wayward member of a 90s California brat pack of sorts, seems to be a simply dope and inspired person. I’ve enjoyed reading some of her old interviews, and not to mention seeing many of her professional and candid photos.
She can most recently be seen along side her sister in RUN, Beyonce & Hov’s kind of epic summer tour promo video.
P.S: Kidada and Rashida have some interesting commentary on their life as mixed race young people. They discuss colorism and “passing” as white in various interviews. Kidada’s experience has been vastly different to Rashida’s due to her skin tone and hair texture. Their group interviews are worth a read.
