    She's from Puerto Rico and was a VS model last year. She's been featured in both Vogue.com and vogue.co.uk recently as a rising model so it does make me think there must be something special about her. To be honest I'm not a huge fan of her but I do think she looks incredibly beautiful in some of her pictures especially when her bone structure is a lot more prominent, I really like that :)

    Her model stats according to IMG Models, height: 5'10.5
    32.5 B" 24" 34"

    Here you can read more about her modelling accomplishments

    @classichic I have seen her alot recently too. But I second what you say she doesn't seem that special. Although some of her photos are stunning I like the black and white David Yurman one :)

    She's been around a lot lately, I agree.
    I didn't think she was that special before, maybe I'm warming up to her now.
    In the Estee Lauder ad, she gives me a really strong 90s supermodel vibe.

    She's one of my favorites. Beautiful face with amazing bone structure.

    She's ok I guess. I don't she deserves all this work though. Her face is somewhat haggard/old looking (especially on runway), she's not very talented as a model (rarely does anything for me in editorials), and she has a mediocre walk. She looks beautiful with lots of photoshop and in some of her ad campaigns, but that's pretty much it.

    Joan is okay. She's pretty and has a great personality in her FTV interviews, but I just can't get passed her runway walk! Looks like she's double jointed at the knees or something

    omfg, that first photo is terrible. She needs to work on her posing :superpuke: I prefer Arizona's ads from last season tbh.

    I find her stunning in the more severe/avant garde looks but kindof boring in the "prettier" images.

    was too busy puking over Joan's terrible posing to notice this earlier, but WTF @ Karl putting gray clothes in front of a gray-ish background. He needs to stop with his crap photography and get someone talented :rolleyes I can't @ the terrible Chanel campaign this season either.

    The campaign isn't as bad as I thought it would be based off of the first released photo. However, Joan's posing is stiff and a bit rough, and overall it feels somewhat amateur. That said, Joan does look beautiful (and old :disgusted:) and the ad does fulfill its purpose of selling the clothes/accessories, so I guess it's not too bad.

    She also got the W Korea August 2012 cover

    I hate the cover, but I love the fact that she got the cover for an Asian country since Asian countries are less inclined to give the cover to black models.
