She's black. She's British. She's brash. No, she's not Naomi Campbell.
ondering whom we're taking about? Here are some clues
She won the 'Model of the Year' at the 2015 British Fashion Awards.
In 2008, she became the first black model to walk the Prada runway in 10 years since Naomi
Campbell.
In 2014, Forbes listed her among the top-earning models; the first for a British black
supermodel. The 'models rich list' was created in 2006, post the peak of Campbell's success.

A style icon, she believes 'fear is not an option'. She isn't afraid to speak her mind and has
supported plenty of social causes and has raised her voice against discrimination in the fashion
industry.
A supermodel, supermom and super chef, she knows how to juggle her career and personal
life.
Still clueless as too whom we talking about? It's none other than supermodel Jourdan Dunn.
