JOURDAN DUNN

Jourdan Dunn is a mother and supermodel. During her 10 years in the industry she has been the face for major fashion labels and graced almost every magazine cover. Here are her secrets.

The 24-year-old model was born in August 1990 in West London and grew up together with her mother and two younger brothers. She was scouted at 14 – when she was out shopping –and walked the runways for major labels like Marc Jacobs and Polo Ralph Lauren within a year after being discovered. 

Her career has been in an upward spiral ever since. In the past years she has done campaigns for Burberry, Calvin Klein, DKNY and H&M and been on the covers of American, British and Italian Vogue – to name a few.

In 2015 she is one of the best-paid models in the world. When she’s not with her 5-year-old son Riley or travelling the world for shoots and fashion shows, she hangs out with her famous friends – fellow so-called it-girls Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss.

For H&M Life, she shares her model secrets.
