FROM THE GRIO — London born supermodel Jourdan Dunn is speaking up in support of the Sickle Cell Society. The 21-year-old model has been fortunate to have a successful career, but has had to overcome many obstacles in her personal life. More recently, her son Riley’s battle with sickle-cell anemia. With support from the fashion industry, Dunn has been able to put motherhood before her profession and still remain a success. The Daily Mail reports:
She has been dubbed the next Naomi Campbell and after being scouted in her local Primark at the tender age of fifteen, she sashayed down the Prada catwalk just a year later.
She then went on to be shot by the one-and-only Steven Meisel for Vogue and has shot campaigns for the most prestigious labels from Burberry to Yves Saint Laurent.
