My my, what a beauty she is! Tonight before I dream of puppies, pizza, vacation, and other unmentionable things, I want to talk about the British beauty Jourdan Dunn. This super model is loved by millions, the face of countless fashion campaigns, a MOTHER, the first black model to walk for Prada, an official 2012 Olympic Ambassador, + a ton of other amazing accomplishments for such a young woman!
Jourdan Dunn was born and raised in the West London suburb of Greenford, with her mother, a receptionist and two younger brothers. She admitted to being self-conscious as a teenager, due to her height and weight. In 2006- at the age of 16, she was scouted by an agent from Storm Model Management, and was signed shortly thereafter.
In July 2008, Steven Meisel selected Dunn to appear on the cover of the Vogue Italia issue devoted entirely to black models. She has also been featured on the cover of American Vogue, British Vogue and Teen Vogue, as well as covering i-D- seven times, Elle, Pop, Russh, Muse, The Sunday Times Style, Ponystep, Antidote and Luella. In November 2008, Dunn was named "Model of the Year" at the British Fashion Awards. Dunn has modeled for for Burberry, Calvin Klein, Yves Saint Laurent, DKNY, John Galliano, Victoria's Secret, Tommy Hilfiger, Topshop, Jaeger, Rag & Bone, Gap, Aldo, Shiatzy Chen, Benetton, H&M, Banana Republic, Free People, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, and is the face of Rihanna's collections for River Island (Some of BBLA's favorite fashion brands) ;-)
I added a few of my favorite pictures of Jourdan from throughout the past couple of years. Enjoy.
