The Joan Smalls x True Religion Collab Is Amazing

by Melanie Richtman

Not only is she rich, famous, and beautiful, but Joan Smalls is now a fashion designer. Yes, the Puerto Rican supermodel can do it all. Joan Smalls worked with True Religion on a collection of everyday basics for the denim brand. Smalls’ 16-piece collection features a variety of trendy items, from sexy skinny jeans to cropped sweatshirts. Basically, we need it all.

Much like the model’s own style, each piece is a little bit tomboyish and very sexy—Smalls made sure to pay attention to every detail, from how the leggings make your butt look, to the high cut of the briefs. Smalls also brings some of her Puerto Rican heritage to the collection with an embroidered sueña, which is reminiscent of the Spanish word for “dream.”

Smalls celebrated her True Religion capsule collection in New York City this evening at the Gramercy Park Hotel rooftop, where the city’s fashionable elite, like Prabal Gurung, and a slew of models, including Anais Mali, Damaris Lewis, Jacquelyn Jablonski, and Lily Donaldson, gathered to show support for Smalls—all looking fabulous, of course.

Smalls herself looked flawless in a sheer black top, white jeans, leopard print strappy heels, a plum lip, and a sleek pony. And while you might not be able to look like her, at least now you can dress like her! The collection costs between $58-$238 and is currently available on
