She Is The First Black Model To Cover 'Vogue' UK

Jourdan Dunn has been making some major headway in the world of high-fashion. The beautiful British model has had a thoroughly successful year, snagging campaigns for Burberry and Maybelline as well as walking in the famed Victoria's Secret fashion show — quite the accomplishments. It's safe to say she is a star on the rise, and her latest accolade speaks true to that, holding an even higher level of prestige. Jourdan Dunn covers British Vogue 's February issue — making her the first black model in 12 years to land on the cover.

Yes, it's true. The highly acclaimed magazine has not featured a black model solo on it's covers since Naomi Campbell in 2002. Whether this has been a conscious intentional decision or not, the lack of diversity shown by the glossy has surely shed some negative light. A look back at the list of 2014 covers showcases the — quite frankly— embarrassing all-white trend they have going on. I'm not sure boasting about it in the below photo was the best move on their part.

Dunn, who was clearly thrilled and very excited, took to Instagram to announce her esteemed honor.

Hopefully this marks the beginning of more commonly held diversity across the board in the fashion industry.
