It’s easy to see why VF has dubbed Karlie and Joan ‘The New Supers’ – on and off the catwalk they’re truly works of art.

One & Only

November 27th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

It is always nice to see Joan Smalls‘ smiling face on a magazine covers, so the newest issue of Vogue Turkey is an automatic delight. Shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu and featuring a smiling, dancing Joan doing what she does best – adding a touch of vibrancy to each image with her trademark poise. Akeroglu’s gorgeous black and white shots put Joan’s grace to good use, making her looking as elegant as is humanly possible. All in all the issue provides a fitting showcase for the world’s number one model – call us biased, but we’re especially partial to the Models.com shoutout in the interview!
