Model Shots: Joan Smalls Rings In The New Year For ‘Vogue Japan’ (Will She Be The Face Of 2013?)

It’s a celebration! 2012 has been a great year for Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls. She landed a job co-hosting  MTV’s revived series House of Style, and goes behind the scenes of the fashion industry alongside fellow model Karlie Kloss. The IMG model has posed for countless fashion spreads, covers and even appeared in a Ricky Martin video since arriving on the scene in 2007. Now the beauty kicks off 2013 on the cover of Vogue Japan‘s January issue. Joan oozes elegance with pulled back hair and rocks a sultry black dress, embellished in a gold collar and sultry cat eyes.

Will Joan Smalls become the face of 2013?
