I spotted her first on Derek Lam fall 2010 runaway and immediately fell for her and the brown dress with black leather insert she was wearing-"Joan Smalls is the girl of the moment." The Puerto Rican beauty, with Queen's address has been modeling from 2007 but Givenchy Spring Couture show soars her among modeling stars. We never really doubted in Ricardo Tisci taste.
Miss Smalls this fall season walked the 44 runaways in Milan, London, New York and Paris including those most spotted as Alexander Wang, Prada, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Stella, Hermes are. That is very of success for established model, not to mention for newcomer so is surely that Joan Smalls will be pretty busy next fashion week season. In campaigns we saw her in those for Ports 1961, Dillard's, Liz Claiborne, Neiman Marcus, Ralph Lauren and according to industry predictions this is just a beginning for this charming fille of age 21.
This long legged, golden skin goddess in her suitcase always carries bikini, a pair of black high heels and a pair of comfortable jeans. Better to keep that suitcase of hers always ready cause this face would for surely travel the planet of fashion.
We can only say Bon Voyage Joan!
