The Joan Smalls V Photoshoot is Righteously Retro

Channeling the cool dignity of Pam Grier, the Joan Small V editorial gets into the old school groove. Dressed in the iconic style of the blaxploitation heroine, Small flaunts what her momma gave for photographer Alasdair McLellan. The Foxy Lady shoot, styled by Beat Bolliger, incorporates some of the signature styles of the 70s such as long trench coats, oversized shades and keyhole cutouts. You wouldn't want to mess with this badass chick because she looks ready to set someone straight in her black leather getup.

The shoot also shows a softer side of this smooth skinned honey, as she flaunts her assets while filing her nails in lacy panties. The natural-looking afro looks perfectly righteous.

The Joan Small V editorial proves that the iconic style of the seventies continues to have a strong influencing on fashion today.
