Fashion News: Joan Smalls Covers Vogue Italia March 2012

Joan Smalls is the cover girl for this month’s Vogue Italia. Photographed by Steven Miesel for his “Haute Mess” spread, Joan is the first woman of color to cover the issue in four years. The model tweeted her surpise this morning at snagging the March cover, describing it as a dream come true:

Congratulations to Joan! Our model of the year continues to snatch wigs!
What do you think of the shot?

PS Does this cover remind anyone else of Donyale Luna , the first black model to cover British Vogue?
