"This season was about celebrating the woman we design for, that woman who has an innate ability to command attention, but in a subtle way - the woman who does not need fashion to garner attention, but rather uses it to enhance what is already there. Joan in so many ways epitomises this."
Take a look at the stunning images below.

And on the 20th of Terry posted three images of Doutzen on his tumblrpage.

Doutzen is balancing being a mom and wife with her crazy modeling carreer.
She confessed that she has too work very hard to have the incredible body she has.
“It's our job to look this way, so we're given the time to go to the gym and we don't have regular jobs nine to five and we can never say we don't have time for the gym. We have to go and that's also a bonus to this job get to go back to work and have hair and makeup and feel pretty again, besides being a mom.”
