On starring in a Beyonce video with Jourdan Dunn and Joan Smalls:
“Beyoncé is such a great woman,” says Chanel. “So positive and uplifting. All three of us models are very successful in our careers, but because in the fashion industry ‘there’s only one black girl allowed’, they’ve made us compete to be that one girl. Beyoncé allowed us to show the world that we don’t have to fight against each other. She gave us the chance to see that we are far more powerful together.”
Models Team Up with Beyonce – In case you have been living under a rock, Beyonce shocked the world early this morning by releasing an album with no notice. Along with the songs, she also did videos for every song (14 in all) and one of the films features leading black models Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn. In the thirty second preview featured below, the trio shows off their sexy in skin-baring outfits and painted lips. The full video cna be seen when purchasing the album on iTunes.
