Jourdan Dunn and Aymeline Valade Cover i-D's Role Model Issue!

Is that Jourdan Dunn we spy hiding under a heap of platinum blonde locks? You bet it is!

For i-D’s upcoming Fall issue, the quirky glossy has cast top models Jourdan Dunn, Aymeline Valade, Candice Huffine, and Iseline Steiro as a quartet of “blonde bombshell” cover girls.  Appearing in four separate covers for The Role Model Issue, the fashion stars shared some true role model worthy advice with the i-D team, while donning modern day Dolly Parton blonde wigs styled by Edward Enniful and shot by longtime i-D photographer Emma Summerton.

But, don’t get too comfortable with the blonde brigade, because i-D is just getting started!  Having been inspired by more than just four model beauties, the glossy has decided to release a total of 16 different covers for the momentous issue! Along with Jourdan and the rest of the golden girls, i-D has also tapped reigning UK beauties Edie Campbell and Karen Elson to sport the signature one-eyed pose, while sharing some of all-important life lessons they’ve picked up from the runway and beyond.

“Talent, good manners, and a good sense of humor are what makes someone inspirational,” Edie told i-D.  “Here’s a couple of golden rules to living life like a lady; always use a knife and fork— unless eating lobster; do not underestimate the art of good reading and good posture; remember individuality is not an excuse for eccentricity.”

Good thing we have 16 covers to look forward to, because we can’t get enough of these wise model musings! Plan on scooping up all of your favorite cover girls come September 20th when The Role Model Issue hits newsstands nationwide!
