Supermodel Joan Smalls made it down the VS Fashion Show runway without a hitch, but she didn’t make it to the afterparty as flawlessly! As she made her way out of her SUV, one of her hair extensions detached and wrapped itself around her leg. The 28-year-old model didn’t seem to notice the wardrobe malfunction as she walked past her bodyguard on her cell phone. In spite of this slight blunder, Smalls still managed to look sensational in her post VSFS outfit.

VS Angels Indulge after Runway Show

Outfitted in a cropped white hoodie, distressed jeans embellished with sparkling studs, and carrying a dusty pink clutch, Joan Smalls left her runway catwalk behind and showed off her toned stomach as she followed her fellow Victoria’s Secrets 2016 models to Ferdi restaurant for a post-show feast. Her slight beauty malfunction didn’t deter her from finally being able to spoil herself with some indulgent treats with her fellow Angels!

Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and younger sister Bella Hadid were among the group that headed over to Ferdi after the fashion show. Jenner was captured enjoying a cheeseburger and some mac and cheese on Bella’s Snapchat, while Gigi enjoyed a different type of treat as she downed a shot of alcohol! We’re sure the models couldn’t wait to let loose and enjoy some cheat day worthy meals, as mother to the Hadid sisters, Yolanda Foster, mentioned that her youngest daughter had been eating chicken and salad for months before the show. Their romp at Ferdi was well deserved, to say the least!

Victoria’s Secret Angel Joan Smalls Shares Beauty Secrets

Despite her fashion mishap, Joan Smalls is still a beauty inspiration to us all! She revealed some of her most coveted beauty secrets to Cosmopolitan.

A total Estée Lauder junkie, she never goes anywhere without these three beauty products on hand: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup To Go, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, and the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick in Shameless Violet. Always on the go, the model says she’s had to not only touch up, but also full out apply her makeup in moving vehicles on her way to events—even applying individual lashes!

When crunched for time, Smalls shared one of her best beauty tips: She applies highlight to her cheekbones, bridge of her nose, and below the brow for an instantly radiant makeup look.

The key to her luminous, healthy-looking skin is to stay moisturized! When you travel as much as she does, it’s important to remember to hydrate both your skin and body. When asked how she keeps her skin moisturized on the go, Smalls told Cosmopolitan, “I like to apply face cream mid-way into the flight so my face is hydrated while traveling or if I fall asleep on the plane.” She also mentioned that she enjoys drinking fruit drinks that offer a combination of pineapple, kale, orange, carrot, and apple to make sure she doesn’t get dehydrated.
