You better WORK! – Islandista models making moves

Islandista models Jourdan Dunn and Arlenis Sosa seem to be taking RuPaul’s legendary advice to heart – “you better WORK!”

And work they are, both figuratively and literally.

In the last month, the two have racked up four major ad campaigns for boldface names – Calvin Klein, Yves Saint Laurent, Lancome and Maybelline.

First Jourdan was featured in an ad for YSL’s La Nuit de L’homme fragrance, seductively sniffing the actor Vincent Cassel.

Then she was featured in the ad for Calvin Klein’s CK fragrance.

Arlenis, who is the face of Lancome, shot some more ads for the brand as well. See them below.

Fantastic. I am so heartened to see the next generation of islandista models getting some serious all-round work. It is one thing to rule the runways as Jourdan has been doing but everyone knows the real money and security is in the ad campaigns.

one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
