Joan Smalls and Michael B. Jordan star in Lee Daniels’ ‘Fairytale Theater’ (PHOTOS)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Whose the fairest of them all?

Apparently it’s supermodel Joan Smalls. The catwalk queen and Fruitvale Station’s  Michael B. Jordan are playing out their childhood fantasies in some pretty awesome remixed version of storybook classics.

The two are a part of Lee Daniels’ Fairytail Theater: One Girls Nightmare in Three Acts  with Smalls as Disney princesses—Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty—while Jordan delightfully plays her Prince Charming.

The photos were spotted at CR Fashion Book on Tumblr.

Check out the pics below:

Being Mary Jane  actress Gabrielle Union was dressed to the nines on Wednesday evening for the Opening Night Gala of The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Union, who served as this year’s Honorary Chair, helped the company’s artistic director Robert Battle kick-off the 5-week winter season at New York’s City Center in Manhattan.

The dinner and performance featured the company premiere of Wayne McGregor’s “Chroma” as well as the company’s signature Ailey piece, “Revelations.” The evening continued with dancing at the Hilton Ballroom.

Joining Union for the evening’s festivities were Best Man Holiday  star Taye Diggs, opera legend Jesse Norman, supermodel Joan Smalls, actor Tristin ‘Mack” Wilds and ballerina Misty Copeland.

After its New York opening, the company will embark on a 23-city tour with stops in Washington D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Houston and Las Vegas. This season also marks the 25th anniversary since the passing of company founder, Alvin Ailey.

Joan Smalls to host MTV’s ‘House of Style’

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

MTV’s “House of Style’ is returning next month and will be hosted by the world’s #1 model, Joan Smalls.

According to EBONY, the Afro-Latin beauty is excited about her new gig and will be co-hosting the show with model Karlie Kloss.

“I’m excited. It’s part of evolving as a model and building a career. I think it’s just me taking it a step further. Of course I’ll be nervous because it’s uncharted territory, but I am so comfortable with myself and being who I am, that it comes natural. So that’s not a challenge for me. And I have my partner in crime Karlie Kloss, we get along, so to have a friend come along with you on the ride and experience the same moment makes it much greater.”

Smalls also says, the show will continue to give insight on the lives of models as it did when it premiered in 1989 featuring then host, Cindy Crawford.

“It will showcase our lives backstage and the dynamics that models have with designers and with one another. I think it’s really great for people to see that, you know what it’s really like and not the perception people have about modeling.”

Look for Smalls to make her splashy debut on October 9.
