You might recall Jourdan Dunn on Future’s arm during the Met Gala. But she’s so much more than eye candy.

From humble beginnings, the beauty was first discovered in London’s Hammersmith. By the legendary agency Storm Models at the young age of 15. Jourdan made a name for herself as one of Forbes’s top models and has been unstoppable ever since. Yet, she is still human and admits to having lots of body hang-ups growing up. She was bullied for standing out while growing up, stating “People pick up on your differences and want to tear you down”, Jourdan told Daily Mail. Insecure and paranoid that people were judging her, she found herself in isolation and insecure about her body.

Splitting her time between London and New York, her seven- year old lives at home with her mother. Her mother helps her with Riley while she’s across the globe to fulfill work.
