Last week, model Jourdan Dunn announced via Instagram that she’d be covering the February 2015 issue of British “Vogue.”

This is significant because it’s been over 12 years since the magazine featured a sole black model. The last time was in Aug. 2002, which Naomi Campbell covered (pictured above).

Dunn has also graced the cover in 2008, appearing with Eden Clark and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

“Vogue” was founded as a weekly publication in 1892, went bi-weekly in 1905, and began publishing monthly in 1973. The magazine has 23 different national and regional editions.
