VIDEO: Jourdan Dunn On THAT Newcastle Diversion & Designing, Umm, Hot Sauce

17 February 2014 by

The Fashion Week fun has left the icy streets of New York and is well and truly happening in our fair city, but front row chatter in London is still about the horrendous journey across the Atlantic. As we reported yesterday, many members of the fash-pack - including editrix Anna Wintour - had their flights from NY diverted due to the bonkers weather and they ended up in, err, Newcastle.

One lady who endured the ordeal and lived to tell the tale is Jourdan Dunn. We bumped into the stunner backstage at Topshop Unique's Autumn Winter 2014 show earlier today and asked her to fill us in on the drama. 'Oh gosh, yeah, it was such a nightmare because the flight was delayed and then we went to Newcastle. And there's nothing wrong with Newcastle! But I just wanted to get home,' she told us.

So did she spend a night in the city Geordie Shore style? Sadly, no. 'Me and Georgia [May Jagger] got a car together back to London so it was a four-hour drive'. But all is not lost. 'We went to the off-licence, got a bottle of wine and watched a movie.' See, they're JUST like us.

It may have been an exhausting trip home but La Dunn tells us she's keeping it 'chill'. 'I'm not doing that many shows [this season],' she says. 'I did [Topshop Unique] and tomorrow I'm doing Burberry and Giles so it's pretty easy and I get to enjoy the city rather than hating everybody and being miserable.'

In fact, the model is already lining up a stress-free break - for one. 'Last season I skipped Milan and went to Jamaica so I feel this season, I want to go to the Maldives on my own. But everyone's like, "Jourdan, that's not a place you go on your own!" and I'm like, "but I want to go on my own" so I'm going to do that.' And we say she ruddy deserves it.
