While 2008 was the year of the All Black Italian Vogue, 2009 was the year of the newest model dream team:
Arlenis, Chanel, Sessilee, and Jourdan.
Though they each succeeded individually by scoring international and domestic covers and editorials, these four glamazons looked most flawless when together. In 2009 they compiled an amazing body of work, shooting with the best photographers and magazines in the industry.
Let’s take a look at a few highlights from this year:
Chanel and Jourdan kicked off the year with a designer filled shoot for Vogue’s January 2009 issue shot by David Sims.
In May, Jourdan joined veteran Liya Kebede for a model themed cover for Vogue.
September saw all four girls posing for Edward Enninful’s I-D Magazine.
That same month Chanel and Arlenis both appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, posing for Peter Lindbergh in a Harlem Renaissance themed editorial called, “And all That Jazz.“
Chanel and Jourdan collaborated with Craig McDean for Vogue’s October Issue.
Finally, covergirls Chanel and Jourdan looked pretty and fresh for Teen Vogue’s November issue.
It’s been an amazing year for our brown skinned beauties! Here’s to their continued success in 2010!
