The supermodel has a boyfriend at the moment, but they aren’t thought to be engaged. Despite that, the 24-year-old has already started dreaming of how she’ll look on her big day.

“My favorite designers are Riccardo Tisci, Frida Giannini, Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung and Rag & Bone,” she said. “Riccardo Tisci from Givenchy will create my wedding dress – it will be phenomenal!”

Joan was recently named The New Face of Fashion by W magazine. She is thrilled to have won the accolade and still can’t believe it has been bestowed on her.

“It feels fantastic; I’m so honored. It’s my birth month so it was a pleasant coincidence. Hopefully the title of ‘The New Face of Fashion’ is very inspiring to those who can identify with being multi-cultural and representing such a beautiful culture. It demonstrates that the world is not one dimensional and that all beauty matters,” she told

Joan has walked for Gucci, Givenchy and Victoria’s Secret and loves her job. She admits there are some downsides to being a global jetsetter though.

“Best part is that its unpredictable and every day is different (no routine) with all of the traveling and working with the greatest creative entities in the world. The worst is traveling to amazing places and not getting to enjoy them with someone you love, or not seeing your destination ’cause the trip is so short,” she said.
