Jourdan Dunn : Model Profile

Coming out of the United Kingdom, now supermodel Jourdan Dunn who is ranked as the second biggest black  female model, was born August 3rd 1990 in London, England. At the age of 16, Jourdan was discovered in a local Primark store by the  prominent modelling agency, Storm Agency, who also by the way discovered Kate Moss. In the year 2007, just one year after being signed, she made her debut in the New York Fall shows, walking for Marc Jacobs, Polo Ralph Lauren and a couple others, while also being featured as a ‘new star’ on British Vogue.  2008 came and she became the first black model to walk for Prada in over a decade, in the same year, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia July 2008 issue which was completely devoted to black models and in the same month, was also shot for an editorial in American Vogue. Among those she also won the British Fashion Council’s “Model of the Year” Award and was listed on Style.com as one of the Top 10 newcomers.  Throughout her career she has amassed tons of accomplishments and overtaken a number of feats but she continues to make her mark in the industry and lives up to what Storm Management Sarah Doukas said, “I feel, if she does have great success, she will have a big effect on the way people look at different kinds of beauty.” Having walked over 60 shows in Spring 2009, she has ganered lots of attention on her stunningly long legs and for her great walk. Check out some great photos of Jourdan in her ‘element.’
