1. Joan Smalls is taking a break from modeling and showing off her designing skills.

According to Business of Fashion, the Victoria Secret Angel is creating an affordable lingerie and swimwear collection with Smart and Sexy, that will be sold at Walmart retail stores in Spring 2018.

“[Smalls] has a great eye for fashion,” Ariela Balk, the company's founder and chief executive said. “She understands that you have to make women of all shapes look beautiful. She also shares that philosophy that you don’t just make an item because it was on the runway and it's the trend item of the moment.”

While the Puerto Rican-born belleza modeled for the brand's 2017 ad campaigns, this is the first time the Smalls is channeling her inner designer to create a line that any woman can wear and afford. (Business of Fashion)
