Joan Smalls Gets Superhero-Chic For Barnaby Roper's 'Woman Of Steel' Short Film (VIDEO)

If you didn't already know, Joan Smalls is awesome.

The Puerto Rican beauty is currently ranked the #1 model in the world and for good reason. She covers the top magazines, lands major fashion and beauty campaigns, hosts MTV's "House of Style" and the list goes on.

We're clearly enamored, and our love was only deepened after watching the 24-year-old get superhero-chic for director Barnaby Roper and Nowness.com's short film "Woman of Steel."

The minute-and-a-half long video is a dizzy display of Joan (literally) spinning and being all-around fierce in an array of designs by Rodarte, Altuzzara, Balmin and Anthony Vaccarello. Stylist Keegan Singh also adds a collection of big gold Eddie Borgo baubles for even more edge.

“I tried to show a strong individual female character and Joan was the perfect person—she gives really strong poses," Roper told Nowness.com.

Agreed. Move over, Superman.

Check out the video above. Awesome, right?
