Vogue just posted a blog item with this headline: “Expecting In Style: What The Pregnant Jourdan Should Wear This Fall.” And that is how they announced to the world the 19-year-old Dunn, who won Best Model at last year’s British Fashion Awards, is pregnant. Not just pregnant, but four months along pregnant (she’s due in December). Of course, when Vogue announces this news, they use it not as a platform for a discussion of society’s attitude toward or the pitfalls inherent in teen pregnancy, but an outlet for Vogue market editor Meredith Melling-Burke to pick out designer maternity clothes for her, yay! (She does the same for allegedly pregnant model Gisele and confirmed pregnant model Karolina Kurkova). It’s unclear who the father of Dunn’s child is. She should have plenty of money to take care of a kid after the impressive career she’s had so far. Sadly, she’ll probably be absent from Fashion Week in September. Tyra Banks better book Dunn for her talk show. Oprah would be better, but we’ll take what we can get.
