ALL HAIL JOAN RODRIGUEZ AKA JOAN SMALLS
Many are already speculating that she’s the new IT girl of the modeling world, maybe the one to take over from Giselle. Who is she? It’s none other than Joan Smalls and her real name is Joan Rodriguez and is she HOT!!!, That’s capital H.O.T and she’s on the cover of the new edition (July 2012 edition) of top fashion magazine W. That’s the same edition that has the ageless Naomi Campbell, wearing some out of this world, Ankara type things.
Joan is the best combo of Black & Latina, and we can say confidently that she’s the epitome of gorgeousness, beauty and fantastic genes. She most definitely has gotten the world in her palms. We wait for her to fully explode and take over. So move over Gisele Bundchen, finally someone to give you a run for your dollars!
Hometown is Puerto Rico, height-179, D.O.B- July 11, 1988, so she’ll be 24 soon, her agency is IMG and she’s done campaigns for Gucci, Givenchy and David Yurman.
Signed with Elite Model Agency in 2007, became the face of Ports 1981 in 2008, was in Ricky Martin’s ‘’It’s Alright ‘’ music video in February 2008, Left Elite in 2009 to sign with IMG. Became one of the faces of Gucci in 2010, opened the Jason Wu and YSL shows in New York and Paris in September 2010, and closed the Christian Dior and JPG shows in September 2010.
In 2011, she renewed her contract with Gucci; same year became the face of Roberto Cavalli and Stella McCartney, same year she signed contract with Estee Lauder. Later that year in September of 2011, she opened for Gianfranco Ferre, Gareth Pugh and Gucci shows in Milan and Paris. It has been a roller-coaster sort of for her since 2007.
Now she’s being referred to as the new face of fashion.
