While we long for a U.S. Vogue Magazine cover for Joan, we’re excited to see her bringing in the new year with the Brasil issue, which follows her covers on Vogue Japan January 2013 and Vogue Turkey December 2012.

For her Henrique Gendre-photographed feature entitled, Maré Étnica , Joan is draped in looks by Salvatore Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Roberto Cavalli and more chosen by stylist Luis Fiod.
