    She has captured the 70s fashion vibe down to a T. I’m glad the photos aren’t too retro. Awesome photos.

      Agreed! Joan Smalls is so good and pulls off each look as her own.

      Disagree. Two white men dressing up a black model in poorly imitated Kathleen Cleaver outfits under a Jimi Hendrix song title is obviously retro, and embarrassingly sophomoric.

      I’m pretty sure that Joan is for the most part of African decent, she certainly looks it.

      I love this shoot though, its retro now loveliness.
