Is Jourdan Dunn? Model Tries to Bounce Back After Pregnancy and Boyfriend in Prison

Of all the up-and-coming brown models, Jourdan Dunn was arguably the most promising. She's gorgeous with a striking facial structure and soft, beautiful features. She poses and walks like a pro. And at 19, she has her whole career ahead of her.

Yet she was almost nowhere to be found on the Fall 2010 runway. While her modeling peers, Chanel Iman and Sessilee Lopez, continued to strut in show after show, Jourdan was noticeably absent from fashion's most important week save one appearance in the Aguascutum show (below).

In December, she shocked the Fashion industry by giving birth to her first child at 19. But that was only the beginning. The child's father, Jordan Cummings, was arrested a month ago for possession of two ounces of cocaine with intent to supply and sentenced to three and a half years in jail via The Cut BlogHello, Scandal. 

Sure she's not the first model to be rocked by controversy (two words: Naomi Campbell), but it's hard enough for a young, black model in today's industry without the drama. So one can't help but wonder what impact this scandal, and her new status as a single teen Mom, will have on her budding career.

What do you think? Will Jourdan be able to bounce back? 

I think (hope, pray) she'll be fine. With a good team, she can be right back on track though juggling Mommyhood and modeling isn't easy. Plus, she looked incredible at her second runway show since giving birth. The runway show took place at the Westfield Shopping Center in London last night.

And although the situation with her child's Father is unfortunate, if Kate Moss can survive her drug scandal, Jourdan can certainly rise above her man's arrest. Do you agree?

Sorry but I don't think so. I hate to be doubtful and critical since I became a mom at the age of 20 but in the industry she's in...SMH, it's hard enough on them (black women) as it is.

Probably why Naomi is off her rockers half the time. Hopefully she can get past it and get some work! I hate seeing talented individuals pushed to the sideling b/c of their personal lives but that's Hollywood.

Who are we to say? Jourdan's done when she says she is, or better yet when God says she is! She's beautiful, young, and talented. Did she make some poor choices? Sure:-). I still wouldn't count her out though.
