Supermodel Joan Smalls has been one to watch in the fashion industry for quite some time now. She first began her career, when she left her family's home in her homeland of Puerto Rico, to move in with her aunt in Queens. It was then that she was signed with Elite Model Management. Her modeling career really took off, however, when she was exclusively chosen to walk in the Givenchy Spring 2010 couture show. Ever since then, her career has been on fire, with her walking the runway for fashion bigwigs such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney,and Alexander Wang, just to name a few. Joan has also became the face of both the Gucci and David Yurman campaign as well as a Victoria's Secret runway model, a regular at New York and Milan Fashion week, and a VOGUE cover girl for British VOGUE and Japanese VOGUE and as of late, the March 2012 covergirl for VOGUE Italia. Her newest cover, however is, VOGUE Australia. In the mag, she is looking very spring-ready with all of her colorful gear.
She is definitely one to watch in this industry and someone I hope to interview one day for OldVintage. Sound off in the comment section and let me know what you think about supermodel Joan Smalls and the Spring Ready looks in VOGUE Australia.
