MET Gala 2013: Joan Smalls

I am not sure why most of the Victoria's Secret models who were in attendance at this year's MET Gala wore similar hairstyles. The lovely Joan Smalls did her own take on Chanel Iman's and Miranda Kerr's hairstyle by incorporating an elegant twist along the left side while letting her soft ombre medium brown to blonde hair cascade over her right shoulder.

This Puerto Rican goddess was escorted by the handsome designer Tom Ford wearing one his latest creations. Her only punk accessory were gold razor blade earrings that looked elegant and stunning on her. The Tom Ford black sort of macrame gown that she wore was see-through and draped her body in a sensual way. She looked ultra sexy especially with Tom Ford standing beside her for the event. Her nude color underwear were a clever choice.

At the event, she was photographed chumming it up with another model who has been associated with Victoria's Secret, the edgy Abbey Lee Kershaw. Abbey just exudes punk style without even trying. Nice to capture her in a photograph with Joan at this event since they both have been featured in Chanel advertising campaigns as well as have done work for Victoria's Secret.

This year's MET Gala was truly a success. American designer Tom Ford last year chose Chanel Iman as his date wearing one his designs. And this year he chose another African-American beauty to escort to the popular event wearing one of his designs, the sexy bombshell Joan Smalls! She happens to be at the height of her career and was recently ranked as the #1 model in the world by Love the fact that Tom Ford so aggressively embraces black models while still holding his position as one of the top designers in the industry. He raises the bar as far as making a true effort to promote diversity in the fashion industry.

Hats off to both Joan Smalls and Tom Ford!
