Jourdan Dunn has achieved more at 23 years of age than most people do in a lifetime. To celebrate her 23rd birthday tomorrow, we've taken a look at the catwalk queen’s best moments over the past year (including her viral version of The Harlem Shake!)
Just days after her 22nd birthday, Jourdan joins eight other British supermodels including Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss to take to the stage at the Olympics Closing Ceremony. Gleaming in gold, the girls prove British fashion as a match for any nation. Rule Britannia!
Jourdan and BFF Cara Delevingne make their debut for US lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret alongside Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Not just a pretty face, Jourdan proves that models DO eat by creating a cookery show for Jay-Z’s website brilliantly titled Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn. The Brit whips up jerk chicken with Caribbean salsa and assures us it will ‘knock your socks off’. Blimey!
Jourdan announces a temporary move to the US in order to explore possibilities outside modeling (could she be the female Gordon Ramsay? Or move into television?) With London Fashion Week in February, her stay is unlikely to last long…
February is a particularly busy month for the model.
She arrives at The Brits in a dazzling yellow mini-dress to present the award for International Male Solo Artist alongside Rafe Spall.
At London Fashion Week, she not only gives Grazia an exclusive look at the real Harlem Shake (look at her work it!) but graces the catwalk for Topshop Unique.
And finally, Jourdan’s dreams come true when her style icon, Rihanna, picks her as the face of her debut collection for River Island.
Jourdan opens up about facing discrimination in the fashion industry in her interview with Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine. She rises above the past and thanks her mother for her strength: 'She always seemed to make things work without ever complaining.'
Selfridges recruit Jourdan to star in its innovative new #denimlovers project in celebration of the London store’s new Denim Studio. She admits to Grazia in an exclusive interview that she owns over 50 pairs of jeans (wow).
Jourdan fronts the ‘Give Me’ Aldo Autumn campaign in 50s-inspired getups with dashes of red. We love!
