Jourdan Dunn Scores Double Covers for the February Edition of Vogue Brasil
Model Jourdan Dunn is covering the February edition of Vogue Brasil… two times. The twenty-five year old British beauty channels the 1970’s effortlessly in the Zee Nunes lensed photo shoot, which was recently shot on location in the city of Curitiba. Jourdan was styled by Pedro Sales and Silvio Giorgio, who chose to deck her out in Burberry from head-to-toe. Sales said the look is for “anyone who wants to enjoy the summer time to the last drop- in the sands or out of them.”
19 year old British model Jourdan Dunn is pregnant. The mommy to be confirmed exclusively to Vogue.com that she is indeed five and a half months pregnant and set to deliver sometime in December. “I’m really looking forward to the future and having my baby,” Jourdan told the magazine. “I’m lucky – I’m feeling really well. I’m healthy and happy!”
Jourdan has been with her boyfriend for several years and the couple are eagerly anticipating the baby’s arrival. Jourdan has a close network of family and friends and has been receiving huge support from them too, as she prepares for her new arrival.
“Jourdan is delighted and really excited,” a spokesperson for her agency, Storm, told Vogue today. “She’s had lots of lovely personal messages of support from all her friends in the fashion industry and it’s great news. We wish her all the best.” The 19-year-old is the latest in a line of models – including Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum and Karolina Kurkova – to announce their pregnancies in the last few weeks. Following the birth, Jourdan will continue to work between New York and London as she does now.
The rumors about an all-black issue of Italian Vogue are true! And its cover girl could be none other than 17-year-old rising star Jourdan Dunn. We’re not surprised Dunn landed the issue, considering she was the first black model to walk Prada this past Fashion Week in Milan since Naomi Campbell in 1997. Steven Meisel shot the entire issue with zero white models, in hopes the move will encourage other magazines to diversify. Let’s hope designers like Miuccia Prada will notice and, you know, expand the castings beyond Dunn. (Seriously, Miu — eleven years?! Ridic.) Landing Prada isn’t the only thing Dunn has in common with Campbell. British Vogue notes: Naomi Campbell has always been outspoken about racism in fashion and 17-year-old Dunn, who was famously scouted in the Hammersmith branch of Primark in London, recently added her voice to the debate.
Teen Supermodel Jourdan Dunn and boyfriend of five years gave birth to their first child on December 8, 2009 according to Vogue.com. Ms. Dunn gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing a little over seven pounds. “Jourdan is really well and super happy” her publicist revealed. Jourdan says she can’t wait to walk the runway again but for now she plans to rest and enjoy her baby!
I’m sure her giving birth will recieve lots of criticism rather than compliments.
First-time mommy-to-be Christian Milian is excited about welcoming her bundle of joy, revealing exclusively to OK! that she and her record producer husband The Dream are expecting a baby girl, but she also admits she’s a little anxious about the whole process. “I am nervous about giving birth to the baby,” Christina reveals to OK! “Every day I wonder, ‘What happens if she comes earlier than expected?’ ”Christina admits that, “as long as Dream is right next to me, I’ll be fine!” This past weekend the actresss/singer had a glamorous baby shower. She treated guests to a decadent day filled with manicures, pedicures, and make-overs provided by Valerie Beverly Hills. Other shower attendees nibbled on delicious Asian inspired goodies from Philippe West Hollywood. But, to top off the intimate party, Christina also served bite- sized cupcakes from Famous Cupcakes just to make sure everyone’s sweet tooth was satisfied.
Fab Chick Indeed!
I didn’t know this until the other day, and I don’t know if it’s a good thing, or bad, but Chanel Iman is the first black model to walk the runways of Gucci, since 2005. It may sound bad, but what’s worst is that British model, Jourdan Dunn, walked for Prada last season, and was the first brown sista in 10yrs!!
Former Gucci designer, Tom Ford, ended his reign in 2005, so maybe it’s the fault of current designer, Frida Giannini, why it has taken so long. And, why only one black model? I know it might not seem like there’s a lot of black models around, but believe me, there are. They just don’t get the same chances.
* So, my question is:
– If you were a black model, and in Chanel or Jourdan‘s shoes, would you feel honored to be employed to a company such as Gucci or Prada?
The Brown Sista models are this year’s hottest runway trend. From the young’ns Chanel, Jourdan, + Arlenis, to Victoria’s Secret Supermodel Selita Ebanks [middle in above photo], these ladies lit up the catwalk.
