No stranger to the flash of a photographer’s camera IMG model, Joan Smalls has steadily made her way to the forefront of fashion elite models. A native to Puerto Rico, born Joan Rodriguez, her personal style and stunning beauty makes her a top select amongst casting directors. Her March issue of Vogue Italia brought her a lot of positive attention yet bringing a lot of attention to lack of diversification of the magazine. Smalls has been the face of Estee Lauder and Roberto Cavalli and Givenchy ad campaigns over the years. There’s nothing small about this woman’s stamp on the industry.
