Jourdan Dunn strips down for her feature in the September issue of GQ magazine. The London-bred supermodel opened up to the men’s magazine about her reputation within the fashion industry and her flirting tactics, in case any brave man thinks he can win her heart.
GQ writer Mark Green notes:
“Forget the on-cue comparisons to also-British, also-black, also-brash Naomi Campbell. Jourdan Dunn is more like fashion’s Tupac—skullcap on, middle finger up, filter off. She’s ballsy, in addition to being absolutely, undeniably stunning, and a practitioner of the what-did-she-just-say? school of publicity.
“For example, her tweet after she supposedly proved too, um, big for a Paris runway show: ‘I’m normally told I’m cancelled because I’m ‘coloured’ so being cancelled because of my boobs is a minor.'”
Dunn’s reputation may precede her, but she appears to be okay with that, telling the magazine:
“People think that I’m against fashion—or that I’m ghetto or a loudmouth. I’m not. But if speaking my opinion makes me that girl, fine. I’ll take that crown.”
On the topic of dropping hints to a guy she likes:
“I think I play with my hair a lot. I’m not very touchy-feely, but I’ll probably be a bit touchy.”
