Smalls Domination

Joan Smalls follows up her recent sensational Vogue Italia cover debut with a riveting appearance on the cover of the May edition of Australian Vogue. 2012 is shaping up to be the year of "Smalls Domination", as the Puerto Rican native moves from top editorial girl to starring cover model. The Australian Vogue cover and accompanying editorial lensed by Kai Z Feng, features Smalls sporting an elegantly coiffed hairstyle whilst showcasing the Spring/Summer 2012 designs from Prada, Bottega Veneta and Dolce & Gabbana. Australian Vogue Editor Kirstie Clements clearly is a fan of Smalls having posted the cover preview image on her twitter page along with the tagline "Global Beauty" and Joan Smalls' name featured prominently on the cover. You can rest assured that a Paris Vogue and US Vogue cover are next on Smalls' hit list.

  1. I'm proud of her but I think her career as a "black model" is a bit fraud because she's bi-racial

  2. Thanks for your comment Swink, I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one though. Joan happens to be Puerto Rican which in effect makes her a Latina. I don't think that there is really much point to dissecting whether she is black, biracial or whatever, because at the end of the day she is representing people from minority groups like you and me, and that for me is reason enough to celebrate. Appreciate your thoughts though ;-)
