6. Joan Smalls
Joan‘s work this year has the brilliant building blocks for a spot on the top 3 — repeat appearances in top editions like Italy, Paris, and US, and working with over a dozen big name photographers. But what’s holding her back? For one, the Estee Lauder model has yet to land a single Vogue cover. For another, the numbers seem to indicate that Joan is playing a token role in the pages of Vogue. Despite her wealth of appearances (on par with Raquel), Joan almost always shares the spotlight, and gets much fewer pages on average than all the other ladies on this list.
