Well done Jourdan

The rather fabulous Jourdan Dunn has been awarded with Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. The 19 year old was spotted by a scout for Storm model agency whilst shopping in Primark's Hammersmith branch two years ago. You will recognise Dunn from the Topshop campaign, the cover of last month's British Vogue, covers of Pop / i-D / Italian Vogue.

In a period in which the fashion industry has been criticised for not using black models, Jourdan is a breath of fresh air. She was the first black model to walk down the runway for Prada in 10 years, since Naomi Campbell.
