#CelebrityCrush- Joan Smalls

#CelebrityCrush- Joan Smalls

We may get some hate mail for this, but sorry Joseline Hernandez, the real “Puerto Rican Princess” is not on reality television, breaking up with her “husband” via social media, or swapping spit with K. Michelle. Instead, she is a force to be reckoned with in the fashion world, one of the highest paid supermodels on the planet, and all around perfect! Ladies and gentleman meet Joan Smalls!

Born Joan Smalls Rodriguez, this Puerto Rican native is a beauty with a brain, having graduated from  magna cum laude from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. Her claim to fame  happened when she moved to New York City and signed Elite Model Management in 2007. Two years later, she left the agency to sign with IMG Models to focus on runway modeling; and finally in 2010, signed exclusively with Givenchy for Riccardo Tisci’s Spring/Summer Haute Couture show that January. Her most recent accomplishments include becoming the first Latina model to represent Estée Lauder cosmetics, ranking at #8 on Forbes  “World’s Highest-Paid Models” list in 2013, and  appearing on the “Return of the Supermodel” cover of American Elle Magazine.


Being of African West Indian, South Asian, and Taino Indian heritage, Joan is truly exotic and beautiful. Her skin looks like it has been sun kissed by God, her body is flawless, and she gives so much face you might call her a modern day Helen of Troy. Brains, beauty, and accomplishments–this rare woman has undoubtedly earned her spot as this week’s Celebrity Crush!
