Beyoncé called upon a troop of models, including West Londoner Jourdan Dunn, to star in her new video ‘XO’.
West London model Jourdan Dunn found herself riding roller coasters and ferris wheels in Coney Island yesterday, as she partied with Beyoncé on the set of her new video ‘XO’.
Shot by Terry Richardson, the Crazy in Love singer also called upon American models Diandra Forrest and Jessica White to star in theme park-based video with her, though it was reportedly Jourdan that Bey shared a waltzer ride with.
Beyoncé ditched her usual uniform of skimpy leotards and glitzy frippery for a sensible white tank top (albeit with a fish net bra underneath), jeans and occasionally a baseball cap emblazoned with the face of rapper Notorious B.I.G. Dunn followed suit with a graphic black Tee and denim hot pants.
How did Dunn end up in Brooklyn’s amusement arcade with Bey? Perhaps the duo collided on the modelling social circuit. We’d like to think that Bey, who starred as the ‘perfect body’ in H&M’s summer campaigns saw the way Jourdan was struck from the runway roster of a notable Paris fashion house and took the ample-bosomed star under her wing.
More likely than this fairytale, it could have been husband Jay-Z who introduced his wife to Well Dunn, Jourdan’s cookery show that airs on Jay-Z’s Life + Times channel. With Jourdan’s love of jerk chicken and the like, Beyoncé knew Dunn could be counted on to share a Coney Island hot dog with her.
