Jourdan Dunn Thinks Male Models Have Harder Catwalk Challenge

British model Jourdan Dunn has opened up on menswear catwalk shows, revealing that he believes male models have to show even “more confidence” than female models when walking a fashion show because they don’t have heels to help them walk in a certain way. Jourdan thinks you have to “sell it” no matter what look you’re wearing and it’s all about the right walk and attitude:

”It’s easier but then they have to bring a little something because when we wear heels we give a bit more of a walk. They have to bring more confidence, more swagger I guess. Even if you think you look silly in your outfit you have to be confident and sell it.”

The model says she is a big fan of androgynous and unisex fashion, and loves pieces that could be for either gender. She commented on her personal style: ”I love menswear and I prefer it to womenswear sometimes. I have a huge collection of sneakers and oversized Ts.”

Currently the face of British luxury label Burberry alongside model Naomi Campbell, Jourdan recently attended the company’s Menswear Autumn/Winter 2015 show in London and was wowed by what she saw. Several items caught her eye and she was particularly impressed with the statement colours and prints used:

”The [Burberry] collection was really beautiful: the colours; I liked the fringe scarves and the leopard print – that was like OK Burberry!”

Jourdan added that she is excited to work even harder over the next year and is looking forward to the upcoming Fashion Weeks: “I’m really excited to get back into it, even fashion week and I hate fashion week but I’m kind of really looking forward to getting stuck in there.”
