It’s been a great year for Jourdan Dunn and Malaika Firth. Both have landed on the catwalks of fashion’s biggest designers, and now the British supermodels are each vying for one of the industry’s biggest titles, Model of the Year at the 2015 British Fashion Awards. Georgia May Jagger, daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, rounds out this year’s nominees.
This year Dunn, 25, became the second Black model to land a solo cover for British Vogue in more than a decade. She was among the A-list names to walk in Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016 show and currently stars in the ads for the brand’s highly anticipated collaboration with H&M.
Firth, 21, appeared in glossies including Vogue Japan and Elle, and teams with Cara Delevingne for Burberry’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 spots. Both Dunn and Firth have also walked in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
In the design categories, nominees include Victoria Beckham for womenswear, Tom Ford for menswear and Charlotte Olympia for accessories. Find out who takes the crown when the 2015 British Fashion Awards are held on Nov. 23.
