Jourdan Copeland’s name may not be familiar yet, but the rising star made history by becoming the first black male model to walk for Burberry.

We know what you’re thinking, ‘It’s 2014 and there hasn’t been one single black male model on a Burberry catwalk since for ever!?” Crazy right?

We want to take a minute to celebrate Jourdan, so here’s 12 amazing pictures of him you can use as your phone’s wallpaper.

1. Jourdan is 21-years-old and was born on 7 January. Capricorn.
