Jourdan Dunn

 

Talk about the best of Britain. She’s walked for them all – Prada, Tisci, Kane, Ford. Spotted in Primark at sweet 16, she was soon on a fast wave to supermodel status – named the British Fashion Council’s model of the year, a Victoria’s Angel, Burberry and Maybelline muse, and formerly host of her own cooking show (Well Dunn, with Cara Delevingne as her sous chef of choice). Jourdan Dunn – all 178 centimetres of her – is really into numerology, has a thing for Willy Cartier, and is a total sucker for jerk chicken. So beautiful – we just can’t get enough.

Beauty is … Only skin deep. My beauty icon of all time is … Iman. My first encounter with cosmetics … Was sneaking into my grandma’s room trying on her lipsticks. My daily beauty routine involves … Cleansing, toning and moisturising with Sisley products, which I swear by. I was spotted … In Primark. Growing up, I thought … Modelling was the easiest job in the world. But now I know … A lot of hard work and bullshit is involved. The most exciting place right now is … My bed. My style icons are … People on the street.

I’m obsessed with … Online shopping. My childhood was … A very happy one. All the kids on my road would all come to my garden because it was the only garden with a climbing frame and swing. When I was younger I wanted to be … A Disney character like Pocahontas. After a hard day’s work I like to … Have a glass of rosé and watch TV. First impressions are … Everything. The one beauty habit I’ll never give up … Is getting eyelash extensions, I feel like an alien without them now.”

I couldn’t live without … My phone. Sad but true. I keep fit by … Dancing in front of the mirror. My favourite food is … Asian and Jamaican. The last book I read wasThe Help. My pin up boy is … Willy Cartier. Not many people know that … I’m really into numerology. On the runway, I’m thinking … DON’T TRIP BITCH! On screen, I’m thinking about … Food. When I see myself on screen … I cringe. My hometown is … And will always be London. My favourite people … In the fashion world are Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne. My wardrobe … Consists of leather, oversized T-shirts, high-tops, heels and hats. If I wasn’t modelling … I would be a dancer. My defining personality trait … Is stubbornness. My nickname is … There are a few: J, Jour, Jourdy and Legs. I look up to… My mum. Right now, I … Really want some jerk chicken!

“If I had my time over I would smile more and not let other people’s opinions affect me.”
