A Family Affair

Every so often a fashion story lets you into the real world of a model and shows you another side of her persona. Girl of the moment, Joan Smalls shares the spotlight with her father Eric and sisters Erika & Betsy, in the latest issue of American Vogue and the resulting editorial is a pure delight. Norman Jean Roy shoots the stunning family in their hometown of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, while Tabitha Simmons styles them in striking looks from Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana & Rag & Bone. Take a look at the gorgeous behind the scenes video for even more of Joan & her family – plus see the full story in the August issue of Vogue.

  1. OMG Joan’s sisters are beautiful!!!!! Joan just keeps going and going and going!! It she trying to be the model of the decade jajajaj

  2. This looks like it was so much fun. I didnt know joan was such a dancer. She’s been growing on me so much. Her personality seems infectious.

  3. I wish I was there with them. The little part where she starts fanning herself towards the en is really funny.

  4. I really love Joan, this editorial is quite sweet but I had major problems with the issue as a whole. Probably the worst American Vogue issues in awhile. Every editorial looked the exact same. I hope they turn it out for September.

  5. WHy didnt they have her mother here?? I want to see what she looks like. Does Joan have any brothers?

  6. Que belleza! Podria reir! So proud to see a Latina model, and a black one to be so successful.
    Where is Anna Wintour? I want to personally hug for green lighting this editorial.

  7. Joan is my favorite. As well as Karlie. I want to see them in an American Vogue editorial together. Actually, i think they should be on the cover together!!!!

  8. I think that wasss beautifully put together.. but Joan needs a VOGUE COVER … SOLO NO HELP…. JUST HER.. ITS TIME AND THAT WOULD BEAUTIFUL AND OUTSTANDING ACCOMPLISHMENT MORE VOGUE THAN HER! FASHION KIDS WANTS THE MODELS ON COVER OF AMERICAN VOGUE… JOAN SMALLS IS THAT GIRL

  9. Carola, youre right…she is from Hatillo.

    She’s the best thing to happen to Puerto Rico since Ricky Martin. And j.lo doesn’t count because she’s from ny, though puerto rican by background. The island wants to give her the key to Puerto Rico. We admire what she’s doing for our people and island!
