Joan Smalls covers Vogue Italia for March in an all-singing all-dancing Steven Meisel lensed affair which includes neon green-and-tiger-stripe acrylic nails, SS12 Dolce and Gabbana and some pretty full on eye make-up (the sort that will get you funny looks on the bus). The image also marks the first time a black model has been used on the magazine's cover since its all-black issue in 2008.
Smalls, who is the current face of Chanel, appears with the hashtag "#OVERTHETOP" in cap letters slapped over her pic.....which is strange, because this cover isn't over the top at all?!? (yes it TOTALLY is..and I #LOVEIT).
