Joan Smalls Is Named One of Paper Magazine’s Most Beautiful People of 2011 Plus Her Gucci Fall 2011 Advertising Campaign

Joan Smalls’ beauty is pretty apparent, thus it was no surprise that she was named as one of Paper Magazine’s Most Beautiful People of 2011. She is absolutely stunning and the past year has been a whirlwind for her, garnering beauty contracts and high-fashion advertising campaigns galore.

Riccardo Tisci gave Joan her big break in the Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture Show. She credits him with launching her career: “I had a feeling that this was the beginning of my career, that people were going to notice me and see me differently. I’ll never forget that moment and I’ll never forget that man.” (Paper Magazine)

Joan is now the face of Estée Lauder, as well as the face of Gucci for Fall 2011. Tom Ford said that she could turn a gay man straight. Is there any higher compliment?
