She was raised by a hard-working single mum; was discovered as a model at 14; was the first black woman to walk the catwalk for Prada in over a decade at just 17 and, in-between modelling jobs, she cares for her three-year-old son, Riley, who suffers from sickle-cell disease (Riley's dad is in prison).

It's safe to say Brit model Jourdan Dunn, 22, is a woman who knows the definition of hard work. 

But the 5'11" Victoria's Secret regular took to Twitter yesterday to reveal that she had been fired from yesterday's high profile Dior Couture runway show in Paris, despite being one of the most popular models of the moment.

Why was she ditched?

Well, because at a 32A cup size she was reportedly a little too voluptuous for the people at Dior's liking (too curvy?! The average woman in the UK is a 36D) ... 

The Dior Couture show, which took place in Paris yesterday, certainly had a lot of flesh on show, with some models wearing entirely see-through mesh tops.

But the supermodel didn't seem to bothered by the designer diss, going on to Tweet that she's normally dropped from jobs for something altogether more serious... 

In an interview with The Edit back in March, Dunn - who is of Jamaican heritage - said that she had often been turned away from model castings because the client "didn't want any more black girls".
