FENDI SS 2013: Joan Smalls
Puerto Rican Victoria's Secret model Joan Smalls has a fierce diva-like runway walk. She closes the Spring Summer 2013 Fendi fashion show during Milan Fashion Week looking absolutely spectacular in a silverish gold sequin strapless peplum dress with matching sequin Fendi baguette. What a great evening look!
Head fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld obviously thinks highly of this beautiful model. He featured her in a very well done Fendi fashion campaign for the 2012 Fall Winter season as the sole model for both Fendi's line of womenswear and Fendi's line of eyewear. She also walked in that season's runway show wearing 2 great looks. Such a rarity to glorify a model season after season especially once the model lands a lucrative advertising campaign.
Karl's love for Joan doesn't just stop with Fendi. He placed her in a Chanel advertising campaign for the 2012 Spring Summer season along with Saskia De Brauw. No wonder this year Joan Smalls has been named the #1 model in the world by models.com. She does have quite an impressive resume filled with all of the top luxury brand designers and photographers. I love how she has blossomed over the years and has become more confident in her runway walk and stronger in her advertising features.
