Puerto Rico’s Joan Smalls crowned world’s No 1 model


The 25-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel, who has been given the top spot by models.Com, has fronted campaigns for everyone from Stella McCartney to Versace since making her catwalk debut four years ago, reported Sun online. 

Smalls, who featured in at least 13 runway shows during the last fashion week, is in high demand with the world’s leading designers, photographers and magazine editors.

Unlike models like Cara Delevingne and Lara Stone, whose appeal lie in their unique, iconic looks, Smalls’ success is in her adaptable catwalk beauty.

Smalls’ long legs, pout and natural looks have already helped her carve a successful modelling career.

Smalls, who was Born in Hatillo, Puerto Rico, as Joan Smalls Rodriguez, is not just inspiring for fashion lines, but also broke beauty industry standards to become the first ever Latina face of cosmetics giant Estee Lauder in 2011.

She also appeared on Vogue Brazil’s ‘Black Issue’ in all black, wearing a bit of oxblood on her lips and nail tips, in January this year.
