Dunn's return to modelling since giving birth to her son Riley in December 2009, has been somewhat gradual until now. Dunn was recently photographed by Emma Summerton for the February issue of Vogue Italia and has editorial appearances in the March editions of US Vogue and British Vogue, lensed respectively by Mario Testino and Norman Jean Roy. Designer Christopher Bailey recently selected Dunn to be the face for Burberry Prorsum's Spring/Summer 2011 campaign shot by Mario Testino alongside model Sacha M'Baye. The momentum for 2011 is already in overdrive with Dunn also scoring her first cosmetics campaign for Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Eclat Spring 2011, photographed by Terry Richardson.

At only twenty years of age, Dunn has an incredible future ahead of her. Since her return to modelling, Dunn appears to exude a soulful worldliness and an air of sophistication which may stem perhaps from the experience of motherhood and her hiatus from modelling. Dunn clearly has support from the top of the modelling industry with casting agent James Scully describing Dunn as "a total star" and Women Direct agent Duncan Ord listing Dunn as one of his all top ten all-time favourite models.
