Disney should be warned: there’s a NEW princess in town!
Though already considered fashion royalty by most standards, supermodel Joan Smalls solidifies her status this month as the star of yet another one of Carine Roitfeld’s breath-taking CR Fashion Book fairytales. Appearing in the magazine’s latest Spring 2014 issue, Joan joins one of Hollywood’s newest leading men, actor Michael B. Jordan, in an epic three-part fashion story created by Oscar-nominated producer, director and writer, Lee Daniels.
Titled “Lee Daniels’ Fairy Tale Theater: One Girl’s Nightmare in Three Acts,” the editorial twists three of the world’s most beloved fables— Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella— into a high-fashion escapade taking place on the mean streets of New York. Although the editorial marks Daniels’ first steps into the world of fashion— he’s better known for his work on such films as Precious, Monster Ball and most recently, The Butler— the director weaves a romantic tale featuring designer looks that are most certainly fit for a queen.
We suppose that one girl’s nightmare can very well be our own high-fashion dream! You can catch a more of Joan and her Prince Charming in the sneak peek below, and don’t miss the full spread in the new issue of CR Fashion Book, now available on newsstands!
