Model of the Moment: Joan Smalls

Born in Puerto Rico, Elite model Joan Smalls hit the scene in 2007. Discovered in New York, Joan, who was quickly signed by the likes of Tory Burch and Benjamin Cho- was obviously destined to be the next big thing.

Best known for her work with fashion houses like Burberry, Gap, Gucci, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg, Smalls has become one hot commodity. Most recently Joan became the face of Estée Lauder’s 2011 global advertising campaign.

Four years later and an international sensation the world over, Ms. Smalls was voted one of AskMen’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2011.

It seems that we just can’t get enough of this natural beauty with the caramel complexion, long legs and captivating eyes. We can certainly expect to see Joan on billboards, runways, magazine covers and even music videos for years to come.
