Naomi Campbell And Jourdan Dunn Make History
Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn made history together after becoming the first Black women to appear exclusively together in a Burberry campaign.
Campbell and Jourdan, who teamed up for the fashion house’s spring/summer 2015 campaign, stunned while posing in a plethora of colorful trench coats. Shot by Mario Testino, Dunn, 24, and Naomi, 44, cozied up, showing their true professionalism. Seriously, these photos are flawless!
“Naomi and Jourdan – two great British icons, two strong, beautiful women and the two perfect faces for our new campaign,” Burberry chief executive office Christopher Bailey said. “It is, as always, a real privilege to work with them.”
During an interview with Vogue, Dunn shared with the publication how excited she was to be part of the campaign. “Burberry is such an iconic brand and I feel very proud to be a part of their campaign and their team. This campaign is even more special for me because I was shot with Naomi Campbell for the first time – someone who I admire and respect within the fashion industry.”
The good news is, Campbell feels the same. “I admire what Christopher and the entire Burberry family are doing so it’s great to be back working with the brand again,” Campbell said in a statement. “We’ve all witnessed the evolution of this great British brand and it is a privilege to be a part of its continuing progress within the world of fashion. It is always a pleasure to work with Mario Testino; we came up in the business together 28 years ago, so have an understanding and ease in working together. His photography is special and the results are always stunning. And I was thrilled to work with Jourdan Dunn for the first time – it was a lot of fun. But above all, it’s always rewarding for an artist to work on a campaign for a world-class product.”
This is Dunn’s fourth for Burberry campaign since 2011, and first for Campbell since 2001.
