Joan Smalls Gives Tina Turner a Twist in V


Wow, Tina Turner hasn’t aged a day!

Just kidding, it’s actually British beauty Joan Smalls emulating the music legend for a spread in V’s upcoming September issue, shared by The Cut earlier today. Shot by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, who helped Eva Chen make a statement with her first Lucky cover, Smalls sports a blunt bleached bob (similar to Beyoncé’s fresh cut) and all white and gold everything for the editorial.

The spread seems fitting as the music icon’s presence resurged recently thanks to Turner snagging her first Vogue cover, tying the knot with long-time beau, Erwin Bach, and being the latest celeb to sit down with Oprah (we can’t wait to watch!). And we believe Smalls embodies Turner’s dynamic persona. What do you think of her transformation?
