I love these photos of Jourdan Dunn from Vogue's all-Black issue, "Black Spring". I know shes a "big deal" because shes a "black model", but I just love her because shes beautiful and enables photographs that have a ton of emotion and a lot going on under the glossy surface of beauty. You know what I mean?
Trivia - The London-born supermodel recently became a mommy at age 19, and in 2008 was the first black model to walk to Prada runway in 10 years.
So anyway, not to get all preachy, but - we should celebrate beauty and achievement no matter what the skin color! I wish one day, skin color would be a non-issue, like something that wasn't even relevant to mention or notice. Do you think that will ever happen? Although, I do recognize that there is a significant portion of the fashion-world that is underrepresented and they would like to open a page from a magazine and say "Hey that looks like me!" (or, "Hey, I wish I looked like that!"). Anyway, input please!!
