Scusi, Black Model Coming Through
Gucci Spring/Summer 2011 campaign features model Joan Smalls in the season's latest must haves. Okay, so she's born in Puerto Rico...but...she is still a woman of colour and I like seeing that in fashion ads.
It wasn't her first time modeling for Gucci. The last campaign she did for the well known Italian designer brand was pre fall 2010, where she posed with Brazilian model Raquel Zimmerman & male model Nikola Jovanovic. This season featured once again Joan Smalls and Nikola Jovanovic along with Karmen Pedaru, Hailey Clauson and Gen Huismans.
