Jourdan part DEUX!!!!!!!

Ive never been one to pit one black model against another black model; nor do I feel the need to dub someone "The Next __________ " but sometimes it is inevitable. With a rumored pregnancy on the way ,Jourdan Dunn is most likely going to miss out come the September shows. Im sure this will cause a frenzy for agency and bookers to try and position their "noir" beauties on Ms. Dunn's spot. But who will succeed come September......Our money's on the following faces (In order )

1. Sessilee Lopez

Sessilee with out a doubt THE top contender, she already has charmed her way in fron of the lenses of todays most covetable photographers (Testino, Lindbergh, Meisel, I &V, McDean). And with a growing list of clients under her belt, we are more than sure that come September, Sessilee will be seen left and right on the Catwalks.
2. Gracie Carvalho

Last season Gracie had a respectable run in NY and Paris (Herrera, BCBG, Stuart, Valli, McCartney), and with an endless amounts of campaigns this season ( Kenneth Cole, GAP, Anna Sui for Target, BCBG, DKNY Jeans, Express). We are more than confident that S/S 10 all eyes will be on Ms. Gracie.

3. R'el

R'el is def. the new girl to watch out for this season. Having booked an exclusive for the covetable Valentino couture show and a spot in the Rad by Rad Hourani presentation ( casted by none other than by The Imagist him self). Were sure that she will be amongst the most coveted new faces this september. And although I would have placed R'el higher, I can't imagine her doing a sh!t load of shows just yet....I smell EXCLUSIVES!

4. Chanel Iman

Ever heard of the case of slow and steady wins the race, I believe something of this sort will take place with the charming Ms.Iman. She did not have a start like the one Ms. Dunn had (especially when it came to covers and editorials, nor has she been a Meisel favorite ( Sessilee and Jourdan anyone?) but she has maintained her presence. Who else can go from being a VS favorite to a Balenciaga favorite? Having already cemented her name in the book of Black Models who matter, we PRAY that the people over at FORD know how to play their cards right this time around, come SEPTEMBER.

Who are you placing your bets on?
