Has Jourdan Dunn been cast at Prada? That's what we're hearing out of Milan - that Ms. Dunn was indeed booked in the show that launched Sasha, Gemma, and Daria Werbowy. Also walking in Prada this morning: A series of black-and-white laced petticoats and whale-bone inspired hip stomachers that look like a cross between the Infantata and a tablecloth... But more on those later - so far, our favorite Milan runways have been Burberry and Just Cavalli (we know, we're shocked too).

Jourdan Dunn Sounds Off on Racism in the Fashion Industry
Earlier this week fashion activist Bethann Hardison (yes, that's on her Twitter bio) put out a call to action: she sent out letters to the governing fashion bodies in each major fashion city (New York, London, Milan, Paris) stating that it can "no longer be accepted" that designers "consistently use one or no models of color." The result of using an all-white model cast, she said, is "racism" regardless of the reasoning behind it. She went on to call out every offending designer. (See the full list here.) We caught up with the Jourdan Dunn, one of five models of color that walked Jason Wu's show yesterday, to get her take on Hardison's campaign.
