When Models.com posted their top 50 models, I went through it and was pretty impressed by the models on the list. I was definitely happy to see some women of color on the list as well. Congratulations to Jourdan Dunn, Anais Mali and Joan Smalls.
Now I’ve come across Joan’s work before and I’m always blown away by it. She’s captivating and so phenomenal.
Models.com summed it up when they said:
“With her innate elegance and multi-cultural beauty, Joan Smalls has become the defining face of modern luxury. Her unique blend of strength and elegance has captivated everyone from Karl Lagerfeld, Steven Meisel, and Carine Roitfeld. Her flawless bookings raise the bar for models everywhere. Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, Pop, i-D, V, W, there isn’t a cover she hasn’t conquered, nor a campaign she hasn’t landed. With the coup de grâce of an Estee Lauder contract solidifying her place as the girl of the moment, Joan moved from phenom to full-fledged powerhouse. Few models have seized their moment in such chic style. “
