Game Changer - Joan Smalls

Puerto Rican supernova Joan Smalls kicks off the new year in stunning form with a cover appearance for American Elle's January 2014 issue. Smalls is indeed the Golden Girl of the moment decked out in a shimmering Gucci bandeau dress that is befitting of her current Number 1. status on Models.com's Top 50 Models List. Fashion Editor Joe Zee showcases Smalls' chameleon-like quality in diverse looks from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of Givenchy, Chanel, Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, and Giorgio Armani. Scaling to the top of the modelling ladder is no easy feat but staying there presents even greater challenges - just as well Smalls possesses an ambition and fire in the belly which shows no signs of abating. Fresh off the runway for Victoria's Secrets' annual runway extravaganza, Smalls does a quadruple take closing off the year with solo cover appearances for Intermission, Style.com Magazine, and the Spanish and German editions of Vogue. The IMG-repped beauty combines high fashion moxie with true commercial accessibility, criss-crossing modelling gigs including an appearance in Beyoncé's latest music video, Spring/Summer 2014 runway bookings for Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Gucci, and the modelling's ultimate gold benchmark an Estée Lauder cosmetics contract. Smalls' extensive and diverse list of modelling clients harks back to the mammoth career trajectories of the original Supers of the early nineties.
