Italian Vogue's new March issue debuted this morning, with a "Haute Mess" Joan Smalls on the cover — the first black model to front the magazine in four years. Smalls tweeted excitedly this morning, saying the cover represents a dream come true.

More special "GIF previews" from the issue's editorials also appeared online over the weekend.  Joan appears, as do Daphne Groeneveld and Lindsey Wixson — wearing what truly appears to be an Easter basket on her head.
