Jourdan…

I met the absolutely gorgeous model Jourdan Dunn during MFW outside the Blumarine show. I was chatting outside the venue when I saw her coming, or better, I saw her legs coming! She was running to her next show but kindly granted me some time. Jourdan has been know for her beautiful feline face and her bewitching eyes, but also for her legs, her long legs which I was not prepared for… Reason why I accidentally cropped her feet in the picture…

 

Jourdan started modelling in 2007 after being spotted in London’s Primark. Since walking her first show for Marc Jacobs and Polo Ralph Lauren, she has been a recurring faces at the fashion weeks, as well as on the cover of several magazines such as ID, Vogue and Elle. And not to mention advertising campaign for Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, H&M…

 

As some of you may be aware of, Milan Fashion Week has never been the best friend of black models, so I was very happy to see her here. Did you know that Jourdan was the first black model to walk for Prada in 10 years..? So hopefully things are changing little by little… And I had the chance to run into another famous black face of fashion of which I will tell you about soon.

 

 

Isn’t she adorable?
