Tall grass, safari-inspired jackets and wild, rumbling waterfalls steal the show in the Joan Smalls Vogue Japan December 2011 photoshoot. Photographer Solve Sundsbo gets behind the lens for the editorial, appropriately titled 'Forgiving Wilderness,' capturing Smalls in her own piece of paradise.
Like many of the hottest fall and winter shoots of 2011, stylist George Cortina doesn't shy away from stunning metallics, lavish prints, and retro-inspired evening wear. In dark wool jackets and thigh-high boots, Smalls is a striking sight to behold, set against the dark backdrop of the wilderness. With the weather already getting cooler in North America, I'd love to trade places with Joan in this shoot, and get cozy by the lake!
