But after an impressive run at last fall New York Fashion Week, the Puerto Rican beauty was on every magazine’s front and on everyone’s lips.
Since then Joan Smalls has worked her way up to the top of the fashion model industry. She was named the world’s number one model by models.com.
The website recently released a video capturing the big moment. In the candid video, Joan Smalls opens up about being a black model in an industry dominates by white models. The video was shot by KlossLondon.
