My eternal girl crush, Jourdan Dunn is the subject of my very first style icon post. The girl who was spotted  by Storm at Primark. The YouTube cooking guru. The supermodel. 2008's Model of the Year... Jourdan is the very definition of 'amazeballs.'

Her make-up is always flawless, usually with nude colours for that fresh-faced elegance. When she wants a touch of glam to spice up or complement her outfit, she adds a bold lip (red or purple) and/or smoky eyes.

Sports chic is the best way to describe her personal style, with a touch of hip-hop every now and then. With her height and petite frame, I think she could get away with anything but I love that she opted for the 'urban tomboy' route. Sweatshirts, print tees and skinny trousers seem to be staples in her wardrobe with lots of leather for an added grunge feel which is perfect for the autumn/winter season, playing into the 90's trend that's taken over this year. Like Jourdan, my style has more or less always had a 90's vibe to it, so I like to think we are both very fashion forward...by being backward lol.

In the warmer months, Jourdan jumps ship to the bohemian in the form of light, airy dresses in natural colours, and dark prints. Jourdan is a firm advocate that black can be worn all year long. She also mixes it up with looser clothes in the summer and fitted clothes in the fall. She's also very much into wearing clothes in the same palette but on occasion, she adds it up with a bolder piece, maybe in a brighter colour or a different print or texture.

Jourdan's preference for flats, sneakers and boots give her outfits a laid-back feel. She also often incorporates stylish headgear into her look, from the beanie to the sun hat.

Lessons Learnt:


Give your look a healthy, California-girl glow with nude make-up.

Statement sweatshirts make for casual comfort.

Mix up your style between seasons.

You can never go wrong with sneakers.

Hats are the perfect companion, especially on bad-hair days.
