Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez and Jourdan Dunn shot what they promised to be a "major" editorial in London last month. We still don't know where it's going or what it's for but the girls have been much more forthcoming since their return to New York. Yeterday, Chanel twittered that she was shooting an editorial with Peter Lindbergh and swore the pictures would be "collectible" while Sessilee Lopez posed for Ellen Von Unwerth in Milk Studios. Today, the two of them are working together in Times Square and Sessilee thinks you should stop by. If you make it, we want to know who's behind the camera and what the girls are wearing. Major bonus points if you send pictures!
Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman Call Out Modeling Industry for Being Racist
That the fashion industry, and particularly the modeling industry, is prejudice is not a question. That the industry is improving, however, is up for debate. One might look at the black models who have ascended the ranks recently--girls like Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls--and say that the industry is moving towards a more diverse beauty standard. But the truth is that even those models, icons in the making, have had to struggle against racism and prejudice throughout their careers--something that Dunn opened up about to Net-a-Porter's The Edit magazine, which she covers this week.
