Style Reads: Chanel Iman & Jourdan Dunn Grace Teen Vogue’s November Issue

October 13, 2009

Check out these gorgeous Chocolate beauties, Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn in the latest issue of Teen Vogue. Jourdan and Chanel talk about their life as models, their rise to the top, and friendship. The Los Angeles born Chanel Iman Robinson signed with Ford Models at the tender age of 12, landed a Vogue cover at 16, and at 18 signed on to be a Victoria’s Secret model, one of the youngest ever.

It wasn’t until Jourdan Dunn stepped on the scene a few years ago, did Chanel Iman have some company as one of the most sought after Black models. Dunn was discovered in a department store in her native native London and became the first black model to grace a Prada runway in over ten years (shame on you Prada). The leggy beauty has been compared to another leggy beauty and fellow Brit, Naomi Campbell.

Jourdan and Chanel, now world famous models don’t have their heads in the clouds though. The two remain the ‘bestest of friends’ and are very supportive of each other. With fierce competition since many designers only book “one black girl” it would be easy to allow insecurities to set in. Racism is apparently still alive and well in fashion but Jourdan and Chanel aren’t sweatin’ it. They take everything in stride.

Model Jourdan Dunn Pregnant!

July 25, 2009

Model Jourdan Dunn is taking on a new catwalk; one that will include babies, diapers, bottles, and cute little outfits. The 19-year-old model is four months pregnant (the baby is due in December), so it’s safe to say she won’t be at gracing the runway at Fashion Week. Well at least we know with her long legs, she shouldn’t have any trouble walking back and forth to the crib!
