Supermodel Jourdan Dunn was cut from Christian Dior's haute couture fashion show in Paris today because of her chest size. According to the 22-year-old's profile page on Storm Models' website, the London-based agency that represents her, she is a 32A - but this apparently wasn't the right look for the French fashion house.
The five-foot-ten-inch beauty of Jamaican heritage, announced the news on Twitter sarcastically laughing it off by saying, 'I love fashion'. She pointed out that it's usually her skin color that loses her jobs.
'I'm normally told I'm cancelled because I'm 'coloured' so being cancelled because off [sic] my boobs is a minor,' she wrote.
There was certainly a lot of flesh on display at the Dior catwalk show, which took place in front of a star-studded crowd at the military museum, Hotel Des Invalides.
Models were seen strutting down the catwalk in sheer gowns that exposed their breasts and underwear. Those who were picked over Miss Dunn for the show included Puerto Rican-born, Joan Smalls.
While she was told that her body was the issue, since Raf Simons took the helm of Dior it has been criticized for using almost exclusively white models.
'Natalie Portman could complain that John Galliano was a racist, but I feel [Dior designer] Raf Simons sends the same message. I don’t know what the difference is,' he added.
The single mother-of one, who won Model Of The Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2008, also revealed the time a white makeup artist said she wouldn't work on her face because she was black.
