Jourdan Dunn is self-concious

Jourdan Dunn fears people are constantly laughing at her.

The 25-year-old beauty may have just recently been crowned Model of the Year but she has admitted she's always lacked confidence when it comes to her appearance and ability, and regularly worries that people are silently sniggering at her.

She explained to ES magazine: "I don't like watching myself speak. My voice is irritating ... sometimes I think people are laughing at me rather than with me."

The brunette beauty - who has modelled for the likes of Burberry, Saint Laurent and Maybelline - even tries to go incognito when she's out with her six-year-old son Riley by denying her identity and pretending she's someone else.

She said: "I didn't want to be horrible to them [her fans] so I let them take the picture. You do feel this anxiety - that you have to be 'on' all the time. I've tried saying that I'm not Jourdan Dunn - I even say, 'Who is this Jourdan person?' but then Riley goes, 'It's you Mummy!' "

Jourdan's self-consciousness will no doubt come as a surprise to fans as she was recognised at the British Fashion Awards at the London Coliseum last year for her contribution for the modelling world.

Jourdan's full interview appears in this week's fashion edition of ES Magazine, out Thursday February 18, 2016.
