Following her Vogue US September 2014 cover, Vogue Spain September 2014 cover, and Harper’s Bazaar’s September 2014 featured, Puerto Rican fashion model Joan Smalls returns to the front page. She is covering the October 2014 issue of Self magazine.

In a short few years, Smalls has taken the fashion world by storm – and behind that gorgeous exterior lies a force to be reckoned with. She is also the first Latina to front Estee Lauder‘s global campaign. For this issue, the 26-year-old was lensed by Patrick Demarchelier and styling was courtesy of Melissa Ventosa Martin. Smalls styled in a Lisa Marie Fernandez and Lucas Hugh bodysuit.

Below are some highlights:

Just five years ago, Joan Smalls was a struggling model—living at her aunt’s apartment in Queens, New York, taking the bus to catalog shoots and making homesick calls to her family in Puerto Rico. Things were not looking too good. One day, Smalls decided to motivate herself by filling a notebook page with a list of goals. They were big and highly specific. Model for Chanel. Get photographed by an iconic photographer like Mario Testino. Wear angel wings at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.”

These aims might seem a tad unrealistic—but only to those who have not witnessed Smalls’s unstoppable drive. Five years later, she has done all of those things, even adding in a few surreal bonus items (star in BeyoncĂ© video, have Kanye West rap about you).”
