Though we can all agree that 12 years shouldn’t have to pass for a black model to grace the cover of British Vogue on their own, we’re also excited to see 2015 become the year of Jourdan Dunn.

The 24-year-old London native beauty shines bright in her first solo Vogue magazine cover, lensed by Patrick Demarchelier wearing a pale yellow and orange Prada dress selected by stylist Kate Phelan.

She shared the good news on Twitter and Intagram on Friday afternoon:

“I’m so Happy to finally say I’M ON THE COVER OF BRITISH VOGUE!!! Thank you @britishvogue, Patrick Demarchelier and Kate Phelan for making this happen and also thank you all for the Love and Support it means everything to me #2015YearOfTheDunn.”

Beginning her modeling career in 2006, at age 16, Jourdan was the first black model to walk a Prada runway in over a decade in 2008.

In November 2008, Jourdan covered Vogue UK’s “British Beauty Now” issue alongside Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Eden Clark.

She also fronted Miss Vogue‘s second issue in April 2014. That same month, she became the new face of Maybelline New York.

Watch her in a couple of new TV commercial spots for Maybelline “Fit Me” and Maybelline “Dream Matte Mousse” below.
