Jourdan Dunn has an issue with the lack of minority representation on the fashion runway, claiming some designers use one token woman of color in their shows – and get congratulated for it.

“I don’t know why people applaud designers for having just one ethnic model,” she told Miss Vogue. “It’s not like only one type of woman loves fashion.”

She continued: “I find it weird when [model] agents say, You’re the only black girl booked for the show. Isn’t it great? Why is it great? It’s not great.”
