Joan Smalls is probably one of the most important and influent model of the moment, with major ad campaigns such as Givenchy, Gucci or Estee Lauder Joan is on her way to enter the legend of super models. Despite her fame and being in every single fashion publication or worldwide billboards looking incredibly beautiful and charismatic (and in case you wonder, yes she also looks gorgeous in real life!) Joan is down to earth, simple and sweet.
There is a ton of great pictures of her so consider the below just as a glimpse of her amazing portfolio, I especially love the energy of her shoot for Vogue US May issue, enjoy!
To finish the week end on a relaxing note, listen to the track “Time” by the Albert Fallen collectif. Rachid Kake (voice, guitar, beat) and Arthur Badea (piano, synthesizer) both students and musicians, met at the Paris Nanterre University in 2010. They soon realize they share a mutual passion for alternative rock and pop music, but it’s the discovery of the Berlin minimalist electro music scene in 2011 that will be the source of the creation of the Albert Fallen project. The unique sound of Albert Fallen is the result of the mix of all these musical influences… Listen, enjoy, relax
Michelle Dockery is an English actress and singer best known for her role in the now classic PBS TV series “Downtown Abbey” telling the story of an English aristocrat family and their servants. This drama series takes place before and after the first war under the reign of king George V. Michelle Dockery plays Lady Mary Josephine Crawley the eldest daughter of the Downtown Abbey estate’s owner, Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham. Mary is impetuous, stubborn, spoiled but at times surprisingly vulnerable and sensitive giving her character a lot of complexity and charm. The sophisticated and distant beauty of the actress is addictive like the heroin she interprets, and I look forward to seeing her very soon in other roles. If you haven’t watched the show yet don’t waist any minute, the first season is available on Netflix.

The first time I heard about Lily Collins, I was not excited at all, I was thinking great another famous “daddy little girl” (her father is singer, song writer Phil Collins). Now the more I see Lily, the more I like her innocent beauty and flawless skin which makes her the perfect choice to interpret the legendary Snow White in “Mirror Mirror”(now playing in theaters). I haven’t seen any of her movies yet (she played in “Abduction” starring Taylor Lautner in 2011), so I don’t know if she has the real potential to stay around and make a name for herself on the acting scene, but I won’t be surprised if she becomes a designers favorite and we see her in prestigious ad campaigns (Miu Miu??)
Here Lily poses for LA Times March issue, styled by Hayley Atkin, loved this editorial, enjoy!
