Filmmaker Anna Victoria Best and stylist Georgia Boal Russell screen test i-D’s top boys from AW13.
Jourdan Euston Copeland is a beautiful boy, maybe the most beautiful. He reckons his best features are his eyebrows, but though their arch is something special, he’s forgetting his fit smile, cheekbones and almond eyes. Not just a pretty face, Jourdan is a trained pastry chef, heralded as the Soufflé King in some parts. Taking his tea with six sugars, favouring peanut butter Kit Kats and creme brulee, Jourdan’s sweet tooth is insatiable. Hailing from Jamaica with the tattoo to prove it, Jourdan was spotted on the London Underground and this season made jaws drop at the London and Milan shows. You don’t often see a face like this.
Name/Age: Jourdan Euston Copeland, 20
Profession: Pastry Chef

What do you think when you look in the mirror? What you lookin’ at?
