Dunn and Dunn

Super model Jourdan Dunn

At the age of 16, Dunn made her runway debut in the New York shows in the fall of 2007, walking in shows for Marc Jacobs and Polo Ralph Lauren, among others. Soon after, she quickly rose to prominence within the industry.In 2007, she was featured on British Vogue as a “new star,”, and in 2008 Style.com listed her as one of the top 10 newcomers. She also walked 75 shows during the spring/summer 2008 season, including Louis Vuitton and Valentino. Dunn has since become a major fixture on runways, having walked for the industries biggest designers. She was often distinguished for being the only black model in shows, to which she later condemned designers for.

Jourdan Sherise Dunn (born 3 August 1990) is a British fashion model. She was discovered in Hammersmith Primark in 2006 and signed to Storm Model Management in London shortly thereafter. In 2008, she was the first black model to walk a Prada runway in over a decade. She has attracted attention because of the paucity of black models in the fashion modeling industry. In April 2014, it was announced that Dunn was signed as the new face of Maybelline New York. As of July 2014, she was declared an icon by models.com. In 2014, Forbes listed Dunn in their top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $4 million in one year.She was the first black British model to make the list. And Crown Life adores her!
