Congrats are in order!

Welcome to 2016! We’re still awarding rappers, basketball players, football players, actors, actresses, models, creative directors and luxury houses fashion awards for their great sense of fashion in 2015.

Without further ado, Jourdan Dunn has been named donbleek.com‘s “Best Female Model Of 2015

Last year, Dunn won the British Fashion Council Award for ‘Model Of The Year and she also made history by becoming the first Black model to get a solo British Vogue cover in 12 years.

In 2015, the British beauty covered and was featured in Vogue Japan December 2015 issue, W magazine’s October 2015 issue, September 2015 issue of Vogue magazine, June/July 2015 issue of W magazine, i-D‘s magazine 35th Anniversary issue, Vogue Turkey March 2015, Glamour March 2015 issue, and more.

When it came down to campaigns and lookbooks, Dunn was tapped for H&M‘s Holiday Campaign, Burberry‘s Spring/Summer 2015 Eyewear Campaign, Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring 2015 ad campaign, and Jon Buscemi‘s Holiday Lookbook.

At London Fashion Week, Dunn attended the Versus Versace Sping 2016 ready-to-wear show after party, Burberry Prorsum‘s Spring 2016 ready-to-wear show, and TopShop‘s Unique Spring 2016 ready-to-wear show.

She walked during the Atelier Versace Spring 2015 Couture Show at Paris Fashion Week and Moschino‘s Fall 2015 Menswear at London Collections: Mens AW15.

We’re just four days into 2016 and Jourdan Dunn has already covered the January 2016 issue of Vogue Japan and she is also starring in Liu Jo‘s Spring/Summer 2016 campaign.

Are models of color finally getting the recognition and same opportunities as their White counterparts?

I applaud designers and fashion magazines that are recognizing talents and beauty versus playing the race card. Diversity in the fashion industry has improved over the past few years. We’ve come a long way, but models of colors still have a long way to go.

What are your thoughts on Dunn‘s breakout 2015? Flip the pages to see some of her highlights from last year:
