Vogue Australia: May 2012 Covergirl Joan Smalls

After the Vogue Haute Mess editorial fiasco HaHaHa, I was super glad to hear that Joan Smalls will grace the cover of Vogue Australia this May (2012). Did you know she was born in Puerto Rico?

The editorial spread is entitled "Falling In Love Again". It makes me want to buy purple lipstick. She rocks it!

All of the pictures are fabulous, but I really love the pic of her in the purple and green Dolce & Gabbana silk dress. The colors are amazing. It's a very striking picture. I also love the bright Nina Ricci chiffon top, skirt,Burberry Prorsum she wears on the cover and last pic. Super nice. Wish they were in my closet. HaHaHa

So who are the players in this shoot? The fashion editor is Naomi Smith. The photographer is Kai Z Fengs. Makeup Artist is Jessica Nedza and the Hairstylist is Roberto Di Cuia.  

Art direction by Paul Meany, Manicure by Roseann Singleton
Joan rocked it!

So you guys want to know my review of 'Wrath of The Titans'? Welllllllllllll, it was ok. hahaha I would suggest waiting for the DVD or watching it on cable. There were plenty of monsters, action, and meaning but for some reason none of it ever came together. It just didn't connect. I think it was the weak acting and actors. It was sorta like a lady wearing all designer stuff, but she still doesn't look good. Make sense? Like they were throwing all this spectacular stuff in the pot, and hoping it would be fabulous. If they make another (part 3), I'm not going. hahaha If you do want to see it, make sure you watch the NEW Clash of the Titans (part 1) or none of Wrath of the Titans (part 2) will make sense to you. You guys have a great day!

...and THANK YOU all for continuing to support my blog (comments). I've been absent, because I was setting up my ebay and etsy shops. Tedious! LOL But I'm back now. Thanks :)

The hubby is bringing me to Wrath of the Titans...he's been watching the preview over and over again :D I'm sure it will be "fun" but not expecting much!

Looooooove Joan Smalls, she is such a beautiful woman and so photogenic. This retro vibe is perfect for her too, I'd love to see her in some shoot that are even more "period".

I'm so glad to see that Joan Smalls is being done true justice by another branch of Vogue after the Vogue Italia fiasco. She is a truly stunning woman and very deserving of the Vogue cover, but I think my favourite shot is the second to last - the simple cream dress and black accessories allow Joan's beauty to shine through.

Hi sweety, hope you're doing well! I haven't seen her with such vampy makeup before, she looks gorgeous! The line green architectural dress is amazing and love the pink pleated Prada dress.

Cara said...

Oh, Joan looks so much better in this spread! I love the D&G dress, the Nina Ricci outfit and the Prada top and skirt. Such beautiful clothes!

Sorry to hear the movie was less than awesome, its so disappointing when you get excited for a movie (and then spend the $11 to see it) and its lousy.

I may email you for etsy/ebay help, I'm working on a shop of my own :)

Juneli said...
