Estee Lauder Nabs Super Stunner Joan Smalls

After being one of spring 2011 Fashion Week's most-wanted models (think Christian Dior, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Versace, and more), Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls is the latest to land on Estee Lauder's roster of beauties. Kudos to Joan and to the industry for slowly but surely acknowledging the need for more global beauty and for bringing more woman of color into the mix. It's about time! Small's global advertising campaigns hit in May and we can't wait to see what makeup mastermind and Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux whips up for this looker's ridiculously glowy skin and gorgeous eyes.
