Jourdan Dunn looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover of Vogue UK — but can you believe she’s the first black model to land the cover in 12 years?

She took to Instagram to celebrate her achievement.


She captioned the cover:

‘I’m so Happy to finally say I’M ON THE COVER OF BRITISH VOGUE!!! Thank you @britishvogue Patrick Demarchelier and Kate Phelan for making this happen and also thank you all for the Love and Support it means everything to me #2015YearOfTheDunn.’

The last black woman to cover Vogue UK was Naomi Campbell back in 2012. It’s now 2015.

In a bout of irony, Vogue UK posted a collage of its 2014 covers to celebrate the new year — and well — take a look.

Let’s hope there’s more diversity in the fashion industry in 2015.
