Meet Jourdan Dunn, a British model who is quickly climbing her way up to being one of the worldâ€™s top models. Appearing in Vogueâ€™s ground breaking all black issue, and landing a huge advertising campaign for Topshop, this beauty has made a name for herself as a catwalk queen in no time. See her biography, photos and video here.
Jourdan Dunn is a gorgeous woman, who was discovered while shopping with a friend at Primark at the young age of 16. Now, only two years later she has done 75 catwalk shows, and has appeared on the covers of American and Italian Vogue.
Jourdan Dunn is a 19-year-old model with exotic looks. She idolizes Naomi Campbell and hopes to follow in her footsteps. She was still in high school and had never left the U.K. when she was discovered while shopping for sunglasses. Now, a little over two years later, Jourdan regularly flies to London, New York, and Milan for photo shoots and fashion shows.
Since the beginning of her fast growing career, Jourdan Dunn has been forthright about matters of ethnic inequality in the fashion world. But this beauty is not all talk. Jourdan was among the many black women to fill the pages of Vogueâ€™s all black issue, which was done in hopes of encouraging others in the fashion industry to follow suit. She also was the first black model in ten years to grace the catwalk for a Prada fashion show.
Jourdan Dunn is no stranger to the runway. She has done couture shows for Carolina Herrera, Christian Dior, and Chanel, and has also been the face of Gap and Benetton. She is now one of the most demanded models in the world and it seems as though nothing will stop her.
