Don’t you just love it when our beautiful women of color are celebrated internationally? Super model Joan Smalls Rodriguez (yes, she is Latina!) has been breaking all kinds of fashion barriers during her high paced modeling career. She is ranked #8 on Forbes magazine’s “World’s Highest-Paid Models” list, and was the first Latina model to represent EstÃ©e Lauder cosmetics. For the month of December Joan has added Vogue Japan to her international magazine cover repertoire. On the cover she looks pretty and sweet styled in pink and blue, but the inside editorial photos are edgy and funky. Check out some of the pics below.
