Born on August 3, 1990 in the United Kingdom, Jordan was discovered in a local Primark at the age of 16 by Storm Model agency. She has gone on to appear on the cover of Italian, American, British & Teen Vogue, i-D, Pop, Luella and French ELLE. She has also appeared in editorials for Russian, French & JapaneseVogue, Dazed & Confused, W, and V and in ads for YSL, Burberry & Calvin Klein. She was also the first black model to walk Prada's runway in ten years.

The thing I love most about Jordan are her legs they just go on and on and she has one of the best walks out there. She always stands out on the runway and has great cheekbones and amazing smoldering eyes.

The first time I really took notice of Jordan was when I saw the 'magical realism' editorial for the January 2009 issue of American Vogue. Her face was so beautiful and she really made the clothes look so good. I loved the hair, which was styled by Guido Palau and the makeup which was done by Diane Kendal. It was just such a great shoot with two great models. I just loved it.
