Jourdan Sherise Dunn (born 3 August 1990) is a top-earning British fashion model.
She walked in the 2012 and 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows.
Jourdan is from the West End of London, in Greenford. Many people told her that she should become a model whilst growing up, and then at age 15 a talent scout from Storm Model Management noticed her as she shopped with a friend.
Jourdan made her runway debut the following year, fall 2007, and caught a lot of attention. She walked 75 shows during the spring/summer 2008 season, and her fame has only grown larger since then.
Jourdan's covers include:
- British Vogue and Teen Vogue,
- i-D- seven times,
- The Sunday Times Style,
Jourdan took a break when she was pregnant with her son Riley, but returned to the scene ten weeks after giving birth for London Fashion Week in Winter 2010. She was part of the festivities at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony along with other top British models, wearing a gold and white gown by Jonathan Saunders.
Jourdan is a great success at modelling, but she also hosts a cooking show entitled, "Well Done." She also performs in music videos for friends such as Beyoncé.
Jourdan Dunn has a cooking and travel show, "How's it Dunn."
Jourdan infamously tweeted the following after not making the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show cut in 2015 (and after Rihanna also cancelled):
Feeling so much better about not doing BS…sorry I mean VS now that Rihanna isn’t doing it also.Ouch! She deleted the tweet, but everything is forever on the Internet. Not very political... but very funny if you have a wry sense of humor.
