The power of Vogue Italia
This is what happened after:
Jourdan Dunn in Prada photographed by Emma Summerton
I love the tagline ”You owe it to yourself. Set the world on fire.” Isn’t she a stunning history maker? The bangs distracted me a little but overall, fiercest cover of the year (so far).
This is definitely not as high fashion as i-D’s but how rare is it for them to not put a random white Hollywood celeb on the cover but a black model-host? Tyra deserves the cover, it is totally for her. (See the editorial of her styled as Michelle Obama here)
So much more high-fashion-y.
Jourdann Dunn in Prada
For this issue, all six models (Aggy, Amber, Natalia, Jourdan, Naomi, Oluchi) are styled as ‘hot nuns’ and photographed by Sebastian Faena.
And, God knows what Miuccia might already be thinking seeing Jourdan in all these Prada. A campaign? An opening/closing slot?
Oluchi Onweagba. I still find it a little ridiculous that this 6ft1 Nigerian stunner wasn’t included in the VI all black issue (is it because of her Victoria Secret contract?)
I am hoping that this trend is not a five minute thing. The ultimate is for more black models to front ad campaigns.
