Jourdan and Chanel

The two main modelling idols in my life: Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman.

Jourdan: My first discovery of this beauty was in one of my first ever Elle UK Magazines in one of their special Runway issue. Flicking through the glossy pages of a magazine that had become my own personal Bible, I came to the Runway pages of Paris Fashion Week. After gazing at beautiful gowns and cute minimalistic blazers I continued to the pages focused purely on Beauty a promotional page for L'Oreal Paris. Showcasing clear smooth skin, nude pinkish lips and bare long-lashed eyes - no wonder she became my idol. I didn't have a clue at that point who this stunner was but I sure did buy the L'Oreal Rouge Infallible lipstick she was promoting.

I sort of pushed this nameless model to the back of my head, to rediscover her at a later date whilst flicking curiously through modelling agencies' websites. My favourite seemed to be Storm Model Management. Here I found her - bubbly, energetic and ever so dynamic - Jourdan Dunn.

Chanel: Now I hadn't heard much of Chanel before buying the Teen Vogue Handbook which gave me an insight to many jobs in the fashion industry, one of which was modelling, featuring Chanel Iman. Here we are given a look into the hectic schedules of a model.

This adorable girl has walked for so many huge fashion houses and graced the covers of Vogue, I-D, Harpers Bazaar...the list goes on. In 2009 she even walked for Victoria's Secret and promoted their new line of the time "Nakeds". Now in 2010 her contract has switched from Ford Models, which she's been modelling with since the young age of 12, to IMG Models. This 20 year old model has a huge future ahead, surely a supermodel to be.
