This time last year, Joan Smalls' name was relatively unknown to the masses outside the fashion realm. But when the Puerto Rican beauty dominated NY Fashion Week last fall to strut spring collections for just about every single major name fashion label, her name was on the mouths of many, and covers of many more.
We called it last year, but Models.com made it official: Joan Smalls is the number one model of the moment.
The website recently crowned the Puerto Rican the highest ranking at #1 and documented the celebratory occasion with a fun video, shot by KlossLondon.
In the video, the Numero Uno model talks about her runway tactics and details what it's like being a black model in the industry.
This girl has beauty, brains and an amazing personality! Great to see her at the top as we always suspected!
Check out the video above.
