“When Joan Smalls walks down a runway, she sometimes says to herself, “Get outta my way, I’m coming through!” And it’s a mantra that has served her well. Last year, the 22-year-old model became the first Hispanic woman to represent Estée Lauder in its ads for cosmetics and skin care. Aerin Lauder may have touted Smalls as a “global beauty,” but it took a while for anyone to take notice.”
