W Magazine is truly turning over a new leaf. The high-fashion glossy recently announced the appointment of famed stylist and editor Edward Enninful as its new Fashion and Style Director and now it is has released images of its first-ever beauty issue, with Joan Smalls as one of its leading stars.

In it, Joan is compared to fashion heavyweights Liya Kebede and Beverly Johnson with the lean figure of Zoe Saldana. Her newest role as the face of Estée Lauder is also mentioned. Joan wears a voluminous wavy afro in the spread, a black satin bodysuit from Lanvin as well as a black leather belt from the brand.

To get Joan’s flawless skin, try Estée Lauder’s Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator which provides blemish coverage and also brightens your complexion. ($58)

What do you think of Joan Smalls’ newest spread? Will you be buying W Magazine’s Beauty Issue?
