Reportedly when a Black person is on the cover of a mainstream magazine it does not sell as well.
Whenever I see a Black person or model on the cover of what is considered a White magazine I make sure I purchase one. We may not be able to pick up copies of international Vogue but we can give two thumbs up for Puerto Rican supermodel Joan Smalls.
She wowed us on the cover of W Magazine, landed a job as co-host on MTV’s House of Style and was the face of Fendi and Chanel’s Spring 2012 campaigns. “You go girl.”
A year like that is definitely hard to top, but landing on the cover of two January 2013 Vogue international covers that were just released, it seems like Joan will be ringing in the new year in a big way!
The 24-year old graces Vogue Turkey's first cover of 2013 in a gold-and-black embroidered dress with a sheer bodice. The look is toughened up by a black motorcycle jacket and a slicked back ponytail.
For Vogue Japan, the glossy opted for a more refined ensemble with Joan striking a pose in a long black dress with a fancy embellished neckline. Both images are stunning and set the tone of a very stylish year to come.
