The Joan Smalls Vogue Germany January 2014 cover story brings its cultural inspiration to life with a Matador-themed wardrobe of couture pieces. The supermodel is captured by Luigi & Daniele + Iango while posing in a range of embroidered, ornate and eccentric looks that are hand picked by the magazine's editor-in-chief Christiane Arp.

Joan channels her inner tomboy while dressed in high-waisted trouser and bolero pairings and shows a softer side with voluminous gowns that would rival those of a Spanish Flamenco dancer.

Hair stylist Luigi Murenu and makeup artist Kabuki complete the model's glamorous transformation into an elegant style icon with a flair for drama and excess. The Joan Smalls Vogue Germany January 2014 cover story highlights pieces from Falke, Dries Van Noten and Emilio Pucci among a slew of others.
