I love a good magazine cover, I love it even more when there’s a model on the cover! But this isn’t just any model, this is Joan Smalls, the front runner in the newest crop of supermodels. In a sea of celebrity covered fashion magazines, Elle decided to step out of its comfort zone and revert to the ways of fashion covers past.

Interview Magazine featured 7 of the industry’s supermodels, such as, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington to cover their coveted Model Issue for September 2013. I was very excited to finally see some of my favorite women doing what they do best, it gave me a chance to finally feature a Model Moment segment with actually models. Check it out here. And now I get to feature another model with Elle’s latest cover.

Earlier in the year I dedicated a Spotlight segment to Joan Smalls’ beauty, flourishing career and perseverance to make it to the top of the fashion industry, here. So it’s refreshing to see Elle magazine finally get with it and give the girl her props!

I am very pleased to see Ms. Smalls covering a publication in the states. The Puerto Rican beauty has many mag covers to her name but sadly, none of them are American, heres hoping for many more!
