Jourdan Dunn is on the cover of ELLE UK April 2016 issue and she looks amazing on it.I am loving the old school vibes I am feeling from this cover. Jourdan is one woman I truly admire. She had a rough time growing up so quickly, being a mother at a young age but she didn’t let any of that stop from her aiming for the top.
She is one of the highest paid supermodels in the world today. She earned her spot on the Forbes list after earning a whooping £2.4 million in 2014, and she is not relaxing anytime soon. This 25-year-old beauty is one of the most recognisable faces in the UK, with her very lucrative Maybelline contract and campaigns for Burberry, Balmain and H&M under her belt, and that is not all. This smart young woman is launching a children’s wear range with Marks & Spencer and Fluid World called Lil Londunn,and the range will consist of 22 adorably edgy boy’s and girl’s separates. I am looking forward to Lil Londunn’s launch so I can go shop for my twins. I am sure anything she touches will be top quality.
In this issue, Jourdan talks about Twitter regret, diversity on the runway, the pressures of being a young mother, and her huge plans for building a brand. I have not read anything about her in a bit, so I will be popping to the shops, to get a copy of this issue. At £4.40, my budget will be hit, but I will class this as a ‘business expense’, lol.
Here are some excerpts from her interview with ELLE Magazine UK:
Jourdan on diversity in fashion:
‘There are definitely a lot more girls of colour being represented. But I also feel like we’re 100% still not there. I want to see us get to a place where seeing a black girl, anywhere, is not such a big deal. Why can’t it just be the norm to see black models in campaigns and on covers and runways? It’s still too much of a big thing when this happens.’
I agree. There are definitely more girls of colour on the runaways, billboards and campaign ads, but there is still a lot more to be done. The diversity issue still needs addressing, from where I am sitting. I would like to see more black girls on the runaways, billboards and in campaign ads. There is still a lot of room for improvement as far as diversity in fashion is concerned. Do you agree?
