The Gold Standard

Meeting supermodel Jourdan Dunn during the fittings for Oscar de la Renta in September was one of Inoubliable Model Army's key highlights of the Spring/Summer 2013 season. Dunn first burst onto the modelling scene in 2006 and has since become an editorial mainstay in publications including i-D, W, Dazed & Confused, and the American, Italian and British versions of Vogue. Cover appearances for American Vogue, Vogue Italia's July 2008 Black Issue, i-D Magazine alongside bestie Karlie Kloss, and British Vogue, confirm Dunn as one of modelling's true bonafide stars. Dunn's other ground-breaking modelling achievements include a 2008 runway appearance for Prada, making her the first black model to walk for the venerable fashion house in over a decade, and her sensational Victoria's Secret 2012 runway debut. 

Dunn adds another editorial to her extensive Vogue repertoire with an appearance in the February 2013 Spanish edition shot by Jan Welters, showcasing Hedi Slimane's debut collection for Saint Laurent. Welter captures a mysterious and sensual side of Dunn, in keeping with Slimane's part rock chick, part Witches of Eastwick-inspired collection. 2013 marks a year of momentous change for Dunn who as a single parent to her son Riley, will be relocating to New York whilst juggling parenthood, modelling assignments and the recent launch of her own lifestyle/cooking show for Jay-Z's Youtube channel, Life & Times. Speaking with British Vogue in the January 2013 issue, Dunn appears to be more than up for the challenge revealing candidly, "More than anything, having a son has made me realise I have to make this shit work: I'm his voice, I'm his lifeline, I have to be driven. I think he pushed me in the right direction. I've always been ambitious but now I have more focus. I'm more hardworking."
