As I sit below today’s gloomy skies, I find it particularly refreshing to see the heavy punches of color in the December
Teen Vogue's December 2009 Issue

Chadan or Journel?

2009 issue of Teen Vogue Magazine. Not only are the glossy pages of glamazons brimming with bright hues but they also feature two bright shiny faces: Chanel Iman & Jourdan Dunn. Although Chanel & Jourdan (Is the blend their names together  Chadan or Journel? Hmm…) have been gracing fashion magazines and runways for quite some time, I first noticed this gorgeous duo two months ago at a newsstand in Chicago’s O’Hare International in an ad for Fashion’s Night Out.

With her oodles of endorsements, fashion shows and guest appearances along with her latest slew of magazine features (including Italian Vogue, Teen Vogue, and i-D) and her recent three-year contract with Victoria’s Secret, Chanel is quickly becoming a household name. I think it is official: Chanel is, dare I say it, a part of the next generation supermodels. While a number of models have come and gone, Chanel seems to be digging her stilleto heels deeply into the fashion industry.

After this cluster of fabulous photos, something else is also official: Jeremy Kost is one of my favorite photographers…

Enough about my opinion, do you think Chanel will be here for the long run(way) or is just another pretty face?

Do tell,
