Global Beauty

Alot of you migth know her from the colourful Gucci 2011 run way and posters, but for those of you who do not know her , she is Joan Smalls . She is the first Black and Puerto Rican model to represent Estée Lauder and am so proud of her,  and I’m generally proud to see more women of colour on the run way today.

Making her high fashion debut just last year, Joan Smalls has been featured in Ricardo Tisci’s Givenchy Fall/Winter 2010 Couture Show in Paris and has walked runways in New York, Paris and Milan for designers including Marc Jacobs, Prada, Gucci, Jil Sander, Derek Lam, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton, and in American, French, German and Italian Vogue.

She has reised beyound our very own eyes and there are more to come of Joan Smalls . Isn’t she a true  global of beauty?
