Jourdan Dunn - Jourdan Dunn awestruck by Beyoncé

Jourdan Dunn is in complete awe of Beyoncé.

The model of the moment has been a fan of the R&B superstar ever since she was nine years old and embarrassed herself when she first met her idol at the Met Ball in New York City last May by asking if she could ''hold'' her.

She told Miss VOGUE magazine: ''I used to pretend I was the fifth member of Destiny's Child. She saw us, smiled and began walking over. We both turned to see if Jay Z or someone was nearby. She said, 'Hi,' and told us that she thought we were beautiful. I think I said, 'Can I just hold you?' ''

Jourdan achieved her life's dream this year by starring in the video for her track 'Yoncé' alongside Chanel Iman and Joan Smalls but she was nervous about the singer judging her performance.

She gushed: ''I was the first one up, and Beyoncé came in and sat behind the screen to watch. It was like, 'Oh my god, no pressure!' ''

The beauty - who also hosts a cookery series, 'Well Dunn' for Beyoncé's husband Jay Z's YouTube channel - was amazed to receive a personal invitation to the showbiz power couple's New Year's Eve party this year.

Jourdan enthused: ''There were only about 45 people there. I walked down the stairs and saw Beyoncé on the dancefloor. She came right over and gave me a big hug. I love her!''
