Cover Girl: Joan Smalls for Elle Magazine {January 2014 Issue}

Super model Joan smalls, who is one of the top models featured in the ‘Yonce’ video, is covering the January 2014 Issue of Elle Magazine!
The 25 year old Puerto Rican native opens up to Elle, in her interview:
"People hide behind the word aesthetic," she tells Elle. "They say, 'Well, it's just that designer's aesthetic.' But when you see 18 seasons in a row and not one single model outside a certain skin color…? There are people in the industry who are advocates, who support diversity. And there are people who do not. I don't get it. Beauty is universal. These doors have to open."
How her modeling career started:
"I came to New York with a dream. I came to do what I saw girls doing in campaigns, in editorials — great things, challenging things."

Check out a few of Joan's hot shots below, shot by photog Michael Thompson:

Alright Joan, great way to start 2014!
