Jourdan Dunn Covers Glamour Magazine UK April 2017

The beautiful Jourdan Dunn is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine UK April 2017, and I am loving the cover!

 

glamour-magazine-april-2017

 

Jourdan Dunn looks great on this month’s Glamour Magazine cover. I love her short hair and simple makeup. Her outfit is edgy and so her, and that smile is so beautiful. This is one issue I will definitely be reading this month.

In this issue, Dunn chats with Glamour about her career, new collection with Missguided, and everything else in between.

 

On her new collection – LouDunn + Missguided

“I want to have the final say, because it’s my name and it’s a representation of me. I don’t want to have my name on it if other people have done all the work.”

I like the sound of this collection already, and can’t wait to see it in flesh!

 

On designing a collection for “real women” vs models

“I don’t really like the term ‘real women’. When you compare ‘real women’ to models, it’s like they are not real, and it’s like, what do you mean? I live on earth. I have breasts, I have a vagina, I am very much real.”

I get what Jourdan means, she is a real woman of course, but many of these collections are not designed with a ‘real woman’ in mind.  But I guess since this collection is a representation of her, it is going to fit a certain body type more than others, and there is nothing wrong with that.

On her attitude to life

“I have down moments, but I just let them be moments and not drag on. I’m like ‘Be a big girl, get on with it, you’ve got shit to do’.”

That is exactly how I see life too.

 

I love the sound of this issue, it ticks all the right boxes for me. I am looking forward to reading Jourdan Dunn’s interview in full, and the other features as well.

Will you be reading? What are your thoughts on this issue?

Jourdan Dunn Covers ELLE UK April 2016

Jourdan-Main-cover-April_preview_1

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?

What do you think of this magazine issue? Lets chat, drop me a comment.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.

 

 

 

Balmain X H&M

Remember the Alexander Wang and H&M collection that sold out in days. Well, there is another collaboration going on, this time it is Balmain and H&M. The new collection is set to hit the stores on 5 November and it promises to be all ‘that’ and more. Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn are pictured alongside the creative director – Olivier Rousteing, wearing pieces from the upcoming collection.

Here is what Olivier Rousteing had to say about the collection:

“I want to talk to my generation − this is my main aim as a designer,” said Rousteing. “H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, getting a piece of the dream and creating a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me as H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for.”

I am so excited to see this new collection. Bring on  5 November 2015.
