Jourdan Dunn Is London Fashion Week's Top Model

Jourdan Dunn.

London's runways featured a mix of iconic faces and fresh beauties, so much so that we were torn between awarding the vets or the rookies with the top spot. Giles Deacon brought Rachel Williams out of retirement, one of the late eighties' most unforgettable faces, to open his spring show. Stella Tennant hit the runways too, opening for Aquascutum and Julien Macdonald. But the newer girls also showed their place. Sara Blomqvist opened for Luella and closed for Christopher Kane. And of course, Agyness Deyn showed up for her BFF Henry Holland's collection, where she opened and closed. But Jourdan Dunn edged out the competition both old and new: She walked for fourteen designers, and all fourteen shows were London's biggest (opening Vivienne Westwood, closing Sienna Miller's Twenty8Twelve collection, and doing both at Issa). And to top it off, she's British. Click ahead to see all of the openers and closers.
