Joan Smalls has a taste for Taylor’s jewellery

Joan Smalls thinks Elizabeth Taylor had the most "exquisite taste" in jewellery.

The 26-year-old model is no stranger to adorning her neck and ears with intricate trinkets, often jewelling up for photoshoots and recently covering her face in pieces for Givenchy's Autumn/Winter 15 show.

Quizzed on who she would go on a shopping spree with, dead or alive, Joan cited the late Hollywood actress.

"Elizabeth Taylor, jewellery shopping. I think she [had] the most exquisite taste in fine jewellery. It's timeless and they're statement pieces," she gushed to

However, Joan would have to hit the stores during a quiet period, as she admits she's "petrified" of crowded places because they make her feel claustrophobic.

She also revealed her best splurge was on a Rolex watch, and that if she had to wear one outfit for the rest of her life, she'd choose a "great pair of denim jeans".

While she may splash out on accessories, Joan's skincare regime isn't as extravagant.

"Every once in a while I'll dab honey all over my face. Leave it for a couple of minutes and rinse off," she shared.

Joan is currently showing off her clear skin in new ads for H&M, in which she is joined by fellow supermodels Natasha Poly, Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima.

In a promotional video, the fashion stars are seen taking part in various activities in garments from the high street brand, including zooming through London, UK, on a motorbike and taking part in a yoga class. Each of them receives a message and quickly rushes to unite on a beach, where they show off their bikini bodies in a variety of swimwear.
