Supermodel Joan Smalls Graces The Cover Of ELLE US

joan-smalls-covers-elleElle US magazine is kicking off the first of the year with supermodel Joan Smalls as their cover girl.

Joan Smalls graced the cover of Elle US magazine looking supermodel flawless. Inside the issue, Joan dished on the lack of diversity in the fashion industry, how her modeling career got started, and wanting to break into the acting industry.

Excerpts and more photos from the cover shoot below:

On the lack of diversity in the fashion industry:
People hide behind the word aesthetic. They say, ‘Well, it’s just that designer’s aesthetic.’ But when you see 18 seasons in a row and not one single model outside a certain skin color…? There are people in the industry who are advocates, who support diversity. And there are people who do not. I don’t get it. Beauty is universal. These doors have to open.

On how she got into the modeling industry:
I came to New York with a dream. I came to do what I saw girls doing in campaigns, in editorials—great things, challenging things.

On wanting to bridge over to acting:
I want to be clear that I don’t want to act just because it’s the typical move for a model. My desire comes from a place of wanting to entertain people on a different level.
