Model Crush Of the Week...

Not too long ago, I announced Chanel Iman to be the next black super model, but it seems as though fashion insiders have another ebony beauty in line to take the throne. 17 year-old Jourdan Dunn could be the next Naomi Campbell.

Dunn is set to grace the pages of both American and British Vogue within the next few months. She'll also be featured in the much talked about all black issue of Vogue Italia alongside Iman, Chanel Iman, and Naomi Campbell.

In regards to Jourdan, Sarah Doukas (the woman who discovered Kate Moss) said this,“I’m very excited for her. I feel, if she does have great success, she will have a big effect on the way people look at different kinds of beauty.”

Love it!

Though this is a huge step for black models, and quite frankly black women everywhere. The lack of diversity in the fashion industry is still alarming. I know a lot of fashionistas who shy away from American Vogue, but this is a great reason to pick up the next issue.
