DUBAI: British model Jourdan Dunn was spotted wearing a glamorous feathered gown by Lebanese designer Jean-Louis Sabaji at a launch party in London on Sunday night.
Dunn attended Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue Edward Enninful’s “A Visible Man” book launch at London’s renowned Claridge’s Hotel as part of a star-studded list of guests.
The likes of Marchioness of Bath Emma Weymouth, TV host Maya Jama and Sabrina Elba, who is married to actor Idris Elba, were seen at the event. Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai and actress Salma Hayek also made an appearance.
Dunn’s figure-hugging, all-black look hailed from Sabaji’s ready-to-wear Spring-Summer 2021 collection and featured elaborate feather detailing on the neckline and across the length of the sleeves.

From Cardi B and Beyonce to Brazilian singer Anitta, the designer’s creations have been spotted on a number of stages and red carpets.
For her part, Dunn complemented her choice of gowns with a slicked back ponytail and dramatic, smoldering eye makeup.
The model was on hand to celebrate the launch of Enninful’s book, which traces the journey of the first black person to be named the editor-in-chief of British Vogue.
“When Edward Enninful became the first Black editor-in-chief of British Vogue, few in the world of fashion wanted to confront how it failed to represent the world we live in. But Edward, a champion of inclusion throughout his life, rapidly changed that,” the official description of the book, published by Penguin Random House, reads on the publisher’s website.
“Now, whether it’s putting first responders, octogenarians or civil rights activists on the cover of Vogue, or championing designers and photographers of color, Edward Enninful has cemented his status as one of his world’s most important changemakers,” the description added.
“I wrote ‘A Visible Man’ to share my experiences from childhood to the offices of Vogue, and to show how anyone can make change in the world, with a little passion, perseverance and a pure heart. I’m so excited to publish my memoir next month. When all is said and done, I just want everyone to feel like no matter where they come from in life or whatever their dream is, they can grasp it. Just like I did,” Enninful, who was born in Ghana, wrote on Instagram recently.
