Jourdan Dunn - Jourdan Dunn's son inspires her to model

Jourdan Dunn models for the sake of her son.

The British beauty says her three-year-old boy Riley inspires her to push herself harder in the fashion industry, even though she misses him terribly when she travels for work.

She said: ''I look at my son and he inspires me to do more and work harder. I'm not doing this only for me.

''It's hard ... we're super close and he's a real mummy's boy. His father has him at the weekend, but my mum's my main support.''

The 23-year-old star was discovered aged 14 in high street store Primark when she was approached by a scout from Storm Modelling Agency, but she didn't believe she could be a model when she was a teenager.

Jourdan laughed: ''On the outside I look elegant, but then I open my mouth and it's all over. I was always told [I could do it], but I didn't want to hear it.''

The statuesque model has experienced racism first hand within the industry and was particularly unimpressed when one make-up artist refused to work with her.

She added in an interview with LOOK magazine: ''If you're a make-up artist you should be able to do any type of skin. Hair's hair and skin is skin.''

Encouraged by the success of her cooking series 'Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn' for Jay-Z's YouTube channel, the well-connected model also has plans to team up with another of her famous friends, Victoria's Secret Angel Karlie Kloss.

She hinted: ''We're doing a little something next year, fingers crossed. I don't want to say too much!''
