At 26, Joan Smalls has become one of the most sought-after models today. She has graced the covers of several popular fashion magazines and has appeared in editorials for various international editions of Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and more. She has also been photographed by a number of well-known fashion photographers and has been selected to model for advertising campaigns of high fashion labels, such as Gucci, Chanel, and Givenchy. Indeed, this lady has taken the fashion industry by storm!
At the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in New York City on Monday night, the Puerto Rican fashion model made quite an entrance. She arrived in a simple yet chic loose-fitting dress featuring a check print and a ruffled hem. Her hair was pulled away from her flawlessly made-up face in a braided half up-do.

Don’t you just find it amusing to see models wear simple clothes yet still manage to work a modelesque look? Joan Smalls was undoubtedly stunning that evening.
Adding more to her 5’10.5” height are those suede booties with wrap-around ankle ties, peep-toes, cutouts, and 3.75 inch heels. They are from this year’s Fashion Fund Award winner, Paul Andrew. Joan Smalls must have been the designer’s lucky charm that night! Expect to see a lot of Paul Andrew designs on celebrities after this big achievement.
