Just like you, we love the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the Angels that make the night the glittery and sexy evening it is. And while everyone else’s eyes were on newbies Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner on the night of Nov. 10, when the show was filmed, we kept our attention on Joan Smalls, who seemed to have the most fun backstage and on the runway.
It’s not the first time the Puerto Rican supermodel walked for the lingerie brand –
that was 2011, if you were wondering – but maybe it was just the fact that this wasn’t her first or even second time at the rodeo that made her more comfortable in her skin, ready to have fun from the moment she stepped foot backstage for the preshow hair and makeup rituals. Keep scrolling to see the best photos of her hot night, then check out how your favorite Latina Angels started the night.
