Joan Smalls Covers Vogue Italia, First Woman of Color in 4 Years

- By

Well isn’t she a sight to behold! This pretty young thing is none other than Puerto Rican beauty, Joan Smalls. Smalls is a pretty big deal considering she’s the first woman of color to cover Vogue Italia in four years. While this is definitely a side eye moment for Vogue Italia, (four years, really?) we’re certainly proud of Smalls’ accomplishments.

Photographed by Steven Miesel for his “Haute Mess” spread, you can catch Smalls on the March issue of the book.

Smalls tweeted about her cover saying:

OMG! Woke up this morning and saw this. Dreams do come true…

That’s inspiring.

Are you feeling the cover?
