These poised Joan Smalls photoshoots capture the young model in sprinter-themed editorials, passionate holiday shots, and doll-like pictorials. Joan Smalls is a 24-year-old Puerto Rican supermodel who currently lives in New York City.

Her modeling career began in 2007 after signing with Elite Model Management in New York. Once she walked for the Givenchy Spring 2010 couture show, her career took off in a big way.

This year, Joan modeled for Chanel and Lacoste spring ad campaigns, and was featured in Vogue, Italian Vogue, W Magazine and Pop. She is one of the most coveted catwalk models, and was mentioned in Kanye West’s song ‘Christian Dior Denim Flow’ in the fall of 2010. This rising star has come a long way, and fans can’t wait to see what work she does next.
