The Vogue USA June 2012 Joan Smalls photoshoot features the likes of Usain Bolt, also known as the world's fastest sprinter. Bolt has been critically acclaimed for his unmatched ability to cross finish lines before his contemporaries, and the publication's team of documentary specialists captured a bit of his athletic prowess.
Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls has collaborated with some of the fashion industry's best, working with GQ South Africa, David Yurman and Calvin Klein. Smalls however has seldom entered the sports foray, making this editorial slightly more complex.
Photographer Patrick Demarchelier spearheaded some incredible images here. Smalls is found imitating the movements of Bolt, and even follows him alongside a light blue track. Her assumption of this agile role benefited the Vogue crew as much as it did Bolt's career, bolstering his international following.
