Joan Smalls Covers Vogue Italia March 2012

Joan Smalls is one of my favourite models, so I was really excited to see her on the March 2012 cover of Vogue Italia. She was photographed for the magazine by Steven Meisel and rocks some pretty intense eye makeup and nail art.

What do you think of Vogue Italia’s use of the Twitter-esque hashtag? The styling is indeed #overthetop but are you happy to see Twitter talk spread to magazines? Vogue Italia are no doubt making a zeitgeist-y statement with the March cover, but do you think one day we’ll see hashtags, omgs and lols slipping into the pages of our favourite glossy magazines?
