Joan Smalls looks like she just may take flight – literally.
The 24-year-old supermodel is gracing her fourth cover of Vogue, rocking an all black-feathered vest on the cover of Vogue Brazil. But this isn’t just any issue, Joan is covering this year’s “Black Issue.” This basically means that out of the dozens of black models Vogue Brazil could have chosen, Joan was their girl.
Photographed by Henrique Gendre, Joan was snapped on an isolated beach wearing an all black outfit with white and gold highlights, all offset by her flowing brown hair and burgundy lips and nails.
Check out the cover of the January 2013 issue of Vogue Brazil above, but if you would like to see the full spread, look out for the issue on newsstands now.
