The 30-year-old half-Mexican American R&B singer-songwriter has landed a major modeling contract.

Miguel

WWD reports that the Grammy-winning singer has signed with IMG Models, joining the company’s roster of A-listers that includes runway superstars Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls and Gisele Bundchen, as well as celebs Gal Gadot, Liv Tyler, Milla Jovovich and Wiz Khalifa.

Bündchen Tops Forbes’ List of the Highest Paid Models of 2015

Gisele Bündchen is beautiful woman on top…

The 35-year-old Brazilian supermodel and entrepreneur tops Forbes‘ annual list of the highest paid models of 2015.

Gisele Bündchen

With an income of $44 million dollars, Bündchen’s salary is a league ahead of Cara Delevingne‘s income, which at $9 million has them tied for the second spot.

Bündchen’s earnings are slightly smaller than the $47 million she earned last year. She’s been atop the rankings since 2002.

The versatile Brazilian beauty continues to clock lucrative beauty and fragrance contracts with Chanel and Carolina Herrera, supplementing those money makers with prestigious high fashion campaigns for Emilio Pucci and Balenciaga. Gisele’s Under Armour advertisement, which pictured her attacking a punch bag while social media commentary blared in the background, was perhaps the most impactful this year. Gisele has turned her name into a brand: She gets a cut of sales from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene, while her line of Hope lingerie — Gisele Bündchen Intimates — also plumps up her paycheck.

But Bündchen isn’t the only Latina to make this year’s list…

Adriana Lima comes in at No. 3 on this year’s list, with a reported earnings of $9 million.

Joan Smalls comes in at No. 6, with a reported earnings report of $5.5 million.

Alessandra Ambrosio comes in at No. 8, with a reported earnings report of $5 million.

Here’s a preview of the most successful pretty people:

  1. Gisele Bundchen ($44 million)
  2. Cara Delevingne ($9 million)
  3. Adriana Lima ($9 million)
  4. Doutzen Kroes ($7.5 million)
  5. Natalia Vodianova ($7 million)
  6. Miranda Kerr ($5.5 million)
  7. Joan Smalls ($5.5 million)
  8. Lara Stone ($5 million)
  9. Alessandra Ambrosio ($5 million)
  10. Candice Swanepoel ($5 million)
  11. Karlie Kloss ($5 million)

Smalls Signs with PR Firm 42 West

Joan Smalls has new representation…

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican supermodel, who currently graces the cover of Vogue’s September issue, has signed on with a new public relations firm.

Smalls, who appeared topless on the cover of V Magazine Model Mania issue, will now be represented by 42West.

Smalls has been ranked as the No. 1 model in the world according to models.com since September 2012.

She made $3.5 million last year, and is Estee Lauder’s first Latina ambassador.

Her other clients include GucciMissoni and Fendi; she is repped by IMG.

Smalls Graces the Cover of Vogue’s September Issue

There’s not denying Joan Smalls is one of the modeling world’s “It Girls.” And, now she’s got the ultimate cover to prove it.

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican model, currently ranked the No. 1 model in the world according to models.com, graces the cover of Vogue’s September issue.

In what’s being described as a return to models on the portadas of fashion magazines, Smalls, whose full name is Joan Smalls Rodriguez, appears alongside Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss on the cover, with a cover line that reads “The Instagirls.”

Smalls, Delevingne and Kloss show off their no-nonsense beauty, complete with clean faces and sporty, pulled-back hair and sparkly gowns.

Vogue’s September issue arrives at a massive 856 pages, down from last year’s 902-page Jennifer Lawrence whopper, but handily beats 2009’s recession-thinned, 584-page Charlize Theron cover, and even the 2007 Sienna Miller cover that at the time was heralded as the “biggest issue ever!” at 840 pages.

So is this a return to models on the covers of fashion magazines? Quite possibly, after famous agencies like dallas modeling agency is producing efficient models every year. After all, Christy Turlington appeared on Vogue UK‘s July 2014 issue, Miranda Kerr graced Lucky‘s June/July 2014 cover, Kate Upton landed V Magazine‘s February 2014 cover and Smalls posed for Elle‘s January 2014 cover, to name a few. Delevingne even covers Vogue UK‘s September issue this year.

Smalls Goes Topless for V Magazine

She’s one of the modeling world’s top models… But Joan Smalls is just topless for her latest magazine cover.

The 26-year-old fashion model, ranked as the No. 1 model in the world according to models.com since September 2012, went topless for V Magazine‘s Model Mania issue, which is out on July 17.

The photos in the magazine were shot by fashion photographer, Mario Testino. The outfits of the models were sponsored by Givenchy, Prada, Fendi, Michael Kors, Balmain, Tom Ford, Proenza Schouler, Gucci and Chanel.

Joan, who has appeared in many high-end magazine covers, has achieved an impressive modeling career, including the top spot on models.com Top 50 Models roundup. She also ranked eighth on Forbes‘ list of The World’s Highest Paid Models in 2013.

Joan, who made an appearance on Beyonce Knowles‘ music video “Yonce“, has been the first Puerto Rican model who was chosen to front the campaigns of famous brands like Gucci, Fendi and Givenchy. She also became the first Latina face for Estee Lauder.

Lima Impresses on This Year’s “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show”

Adriana Lima should be called a superwoman…

During last night’s televised Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the 31-year-old Brazilian supermodel strutted her stuff on the runway a mere two months after giving birth to her second daughter.

Adriana Lima

Lima made her grand entrance in scarlet lace lingerie during runway show, which was taped last month and broadcast on CBS on Tuesday night.

Along with Lima’s impressive comeback, the show’s highlights Rihanna rocking out in a lingerie-inspired look during her special performance of her single  “Fresh Out the Runway” at the end of the corset-and-garter parade, earning the audience’s biggest applause while holding her own on the same catwalk as some of the world’s top models.

Meanwhile, Alessandra Ambrosio‘s orchid-petal wings might have lacked a little pizzazz, but she made up for it by donning a $2.5 million jeweled “floral fantasy bra.”

Alessandra Ambrosio

“It’s highly televised, and you take that into consideration,” said model Joan Smalls ahead of the show. “This is kind of not the same as other runways. You have to prepare your body: No. 1 is the wings are heavy, and No. 2 is you have to be comfortable with your body because the camera will pick up on it if you’re not comfortable and confident.”

This year’s show was divided into six sections: Circus, complete with acrobats, contortionists and a sword eater; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls, which allowed Bruno Mars to serenade a model for each month of the year.

This year’s show included an announcement that Victoria’s Secret and CBS had each made a donation to relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy, as well as a thank you to the National Guard members based out of the Lexington Avenue Armory that has been home to the show for years.

Don’t worry! As evidenced by the behind-the-scenes video, Smalls wasn’t exactly risking her life for Lagerfeld’s lens. But she still had to rope climb, mount a high bar and swim—all in Chanel!
