Jourdan Dunn

Jourdan Dunn is a British fashion model, she was born in London, on 3rd August 1990.Dunn was discovered in a local Primark at 16 by the legendary agency Storm Models (who also discovered Kate Moss) and has been unstoppable ever since. Voted the British Fashion Council's "Model of the Year" in 2008 as well as being one of the 4 cover models for Vogue Italia's iconic Black Models issue, July 2008.

She has walked the runways for nearly every top designer and making history as the first black model since Naomi to strut for Prada, Jourdan is a bona-fide star.

The 24-year-old from Greenford, west London, ranked alongside Gisele Bündchen and Mirander Kerr as one of the highest earning models in the world in 2013.Contracts with Maybelline and Burberry helped Dunn earn $4m (£2.4m) in the period between June 2013-14, making her one of only three British women, alongside Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss, to appear on the list.

Dunn has achieved what Naomi Campbell, Britain's first black supermodel, could not, in part because Forbes invented the models rich list in 2006 after the peak of Campbell's success.

Jourdan has one son, Riley (born 2009) with his long term boyfriend. But the two split up after he was arrested for dealing cocaine.
