At Fall 08 Prada, the fashion world drew a collective gasp when Jourdan Dunn took to the runway bedecked in lace, becoming the first black model to be cast in Miuccia's show in ten years.
She returned, again as the only black model in the long, leggy line-up, for Spring 09. But at Prada's suited up show yesterday, the model line-up was back to an especially alabaster cast, which makes us wonder if Jourdan's two season stint is just a flash in the pan despite recent reports of more diverse runways.
After all, the Prada runway is seen as a barometer of which models' careers are about to take off. So if the usual holds true, it looks like another knock-out season for Sasha, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Karlie, etc and Ymre Stiekema, Prada's season exclusive (again).
