Jourdan Dunn has become the first black model to grace a solo Vogue UK cover in twelve years. Yes, it's disheartening that's its taken so long to have another beautiful black model on the cover yet I am beyond excited for her. She certainly deserves it!
According to the Telegraph, Naomi Campbell was the last black model to get a solo feature in 2002 while Jourdan previously appeared on the cover in November 2008 along with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Eden Clark. The British beauty shared a preview of the image on her Instagram page earlier with the following caption: “I’m so Happy to finally say I’M ON THE COVER OF BRITISH VOGUE!!”.
Jourdan was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier while wearing a Prada dress from the label’s spring-summer 2015 collection.
