INSPIRATION: Jourdan Dunn

Hello Lovelies,
I have noticed that I don't have a post for any topic in the "inspiration" tab that I have on my blog and that is sad because everyday I discover new bloggers and I get inspired by so many models, bloggers, photos. So in this post, I am going to introduce one of the models that I love and follow a lot: Jourdan Dunn.


Jourdan Dunn was born and grew up in London but started her runway debut in New York shows in fall 2007, walking for Marc Jacobs among other big designers, after she was discovered in 2006 while shopping in Primark with a friend (NYMag). She gained attention as she was among the few black models that are in the fashion modelling industry (wiki). In 2007, she was featured on the British Vogue as a "new star" (click here for the story) and as one of the top 10 newcomers in "style.com" in 2008. In 2008, she was the first black model to walk a Prada runway over a period of 10 years (teenvogue).

I could go on and on about her biography but it can easily be found on wikipedia, and other web sources so instead I'm going to show you the photos and I'm sure you will fall in love with her too and her pretty smile (ha!).

She is really lovely.
For me it would be difficult to make inspiration posts, as my inspiration is so random (usually not a person, or a certain style.. just some sorta atmosphere :P)

Nice post Jessy. She is indeed gorgeous and I could just die for the line of her shoulders in that first Gaultier dress and the red Jason Wu gown.
