Born on July 11, 1988 in Puerto Rico. Joan was discovered in 2007 when she left her homeland, moved in with her aunt in Queens, and signed with Elite Model Management.

I can’t believe that it has taken me this long to do this post; I think that Joan Smalls is a really talented model. She has such a great look and takes really beautiful pictures. She has amazing legs and I think that she is well known for her pout. Joan has the ability to draw you into her pictures, I always find myself staring at her photos even though she never really does any crazy poses her photos are simple and stunning.

I can’t remember when I first noticed Joan, she is one of those models that just kind of showed up and was everywhere. I know she has been modelling for a while now, but it’s just recently that people have really started to take notice. This photo shoot from V is one that I saw recently that actually reminded me that I needed to do focus on post for Joan.
