Jourdan Sherise Dunn (born 3 August 1990) is an English supermodel and actress. She was discovered in Hammersmith Primark in 2006 and signed to Storm Management in London shortly thereafter. She began appearing on international runways in early 2007. In February 2008, she was the first black model to walk a Prada runway in over a decade.

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. Dunn is considered to be one of this generation’s supermodels.

Career

In March 2013, Dunn appeared as the cover story in Net-a-Porter’s “The Edit.” In it she spoke of encountering discrimination telling the magazine that casting agents would say clients “didn’t want any more black girls”. In July 2013, she received media attention for tweeting that she had been cancelled from a Dior haute couture show, “for her boobs”; rather than her skin colour – which she noted, “usually happens”.

In April 2014, it was announced that Maybelline New York had signed her to join the brand. Her first role for the cosmetic company will be fronting the brand’s Go Extreme Mascara, accompanied with print and television ads.

Forbes listed Dunn in their 2014 top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $US4 million in one year. She appeared on the 2015 list having earned $US3.5million.

She is pictured in the September 2015 issue of Vogue modelling a J. Mendel fox fur boa.

Dunn signed a deal with British multinational retailer Marks & Spencer to design a kidswear clothing collection. The collection; called “Lil’ LonDunn by Jourdan Dunn”, debuted in April 2016.

A collaboration between Jourdan and British fashion retailer Missguided was launched in April 2017, featuring athletic wear. Revenue for the company increased by 75%, with international sales increasing by 130%, whilst the campaign with Dunn was active.

She appeared in a music video for Nicki Minaj entitled “Regret In Your Tears”, directed by Mert and Marcus in May 2017.
