I can’t get enough of this duo! Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn cover the November 2009 issue of Teen Vogue magazine.
Looking fresh and radiant and smiling their teeth off, Chanel and Jourdan are the new power fashion couple. At least as far as fashion magazines pictorials go. And it’s not just that. Being pregnant at such a tender age as Jourdan and still have so much support from the industry (and the media) is huge! (the story continues right after the jump with more images!)
While Chanel looks and feels careless, carefree and career focused, Jourdan takes on her mother’s footsteps. She revealed in Teen Vogue’s interview that her mother got pregnant with her when she was the same age (nineteen). Isn’t that something? It’s not just about their personal choices you get to read in this November 2009 Teen Vogue! It’s also about the harsh realities of the fashion industry. Especially when your skin color is different from the average white-ish:
“I remember last season,” says Jourdan, “I was about to go into a casting, and my agent phoned and said, ‘Turn back. They decided they don’t want any black models.’ I was like, ‘They’re actually telling you that’s the reason? Are you serious?!'”
It’s good to know they stick together now, after all this time! Personally, if I was to choose, I’d go with Jourdan for her grace and warm beauty; I’d go with Chanel for her young ways and open smile. Since I can’t break the two and make just one, I’ll have to agree with all these editors who take the duo for a photo shoot. How can you choose just one? (photos via 1, 2)
