She looks amazing! I can't believe she is 18 already. I remember when the Duggars were first on TV she was only 6.
Little Joy Anna all grown up! What a beautiful young woman! Very nice pictures.
Wow, this girl can strike a pose! :-) Good job Joy Anna, your spunkiness shines out of you. I truly hope you will nurture it, and not let anyone change it, because it's the thing that makes you- YOU, unique, gorgeous and lovely, just the way you are. :-)
Oh Joy-Anna--you are way to young and beautiful to dress so gothic. I'm sure that wasn't the intent as you have a sweet spirit about you. You are 18...shed the mourning clothes!
Black doesn't have to mean gothic or mourning. It's just a color. Who knows? Maybe it's Joy's favorite! Don't look for implications that aren't there.
Black clothes are not automatically Gothic or for mourning. Joy Anna's outfit is fashionable and flattering.
She is not dressed in goth!!!! She is simply radiant and beautiful in a simple black outfit!!! I highly doubt the duggars even know what high is. Is joy wearing black lipstick, thick black eyeliner, have her nailed painted black, have her hair dyed and fixed all crazy?? I do t think so!!! Joy is as far away from goth as possible! What women doesn't own a pretty black dress that makes her feel pretty?????
I personally think that the clothes look great on her. Black is one of the most fashionable colors in my opinion.
Joy-Anna is dressed beautifully and is a beautiful young lady! Come to my place of employment, and I will show you what True gothic is!
You should look more into gothic dressing
Really pretty photos! But why do they have her wearing all black? Can't wait for tomorrow!
Whoever took these pictures is great at photography.
They are TLC publicity shots done in a studio, not ones taken by Jinger in a field.
Joy is a ray of sunshine !! You see her beautiful heart in her smile !!
She is so pretty and joyful.
Sadly I won't be able to watch the rest of the Season since I'm travelling back to Ecuador. I hope to meet them someday. #WishfulThinking #LoveTheDuggars!Thank you Lily and Ellie for keeping us posted.Cheers all the way from Minnesota!
I wouldn't have thought that the Duggars would encourage this sort of posing to the camera....
It's not like the poses were sultry in any way. . .
I'm not sure what your issue is with these pictures. They are very flattering and show Joy Anna's personality very well.
Exactly! Seems like this new show they are trying almost too hard to make the older duggars seem more mainstream. I thought the whole point of having thier show was a platform to thier ministry to show others they don't have be like anything of this world and materialistic to show their love of God. So much for that. Now they are all over social media sharing more selfies and food posts than anything related to the gospel. Well Ben and Derrick like to copy and paste from Other people's writings so there is that?
Good grief. They are young people. They can't have fun and spontaneity?!?!
They are not MAKING the older be anything, the older children CHOOSE what they want to do and be, based on the household teachings. The outfit Joy chose is modest in length, fit and neckline height. She is smiling with delight, eager to take on the transition years of 18 to 21 years old.
lol I know right?
Love Joy!She's growing up fast and becoming a beautiful young lady. 🌺🌼🌻
She's very pretty & such a good spirit about life.
Joy has grown into a very beautiful women
Joy is a beautiful soul in every aspect!! ♥
It's amazing to see how she blossomed from a cute tomboy to a lovely young lady. Wishing Joy all the blessings she can take😊
She looks adorable. It's amazing how far this family has come fashion-wise, since the 14 Kids days.
Who picked that dress? You can see more of her legs thru the sheer part than when she wears the modesty swimsuit that the girls all wear.
She looks so happy! :D
Don't like the dress but you are very beautiful. Both me and you are the 5th girls in our families.
Joy you are so pretty and talented you are just awesome
I love the skirt!
I don't - it's sheer and shows her legs, which are supposed to be covered.
Oh c'mon. There's a liner underneath the sheer overskirt; it's only that the sheer part is a few inches longer than the liner. The whole skirt isn't sheer!
Not above her knee which is their standards if dress.
Agreed - they don't even go swimming showing that much leg.
I haven't seen the episode yet; however if it was Jinger who took those pictures, BRAVO! she captured the essence of her sister quite well! I enjoy how Joy is saying to the world "you can wear dark colours without having a dark attitude".
No, all the pictures of the sisters were taken by professionals.
Joy, you are beautiful inside and out. Continue on the beautiful journey in discovering God's awesome and unique plan He has for you. Love and prayers.His blessings,Sandy B.
The new show is so boring and lack-luster. Probably won't be watching
You look amazing,I love the outfit and your hair is so healthy and beautiful. You have a gorgeous face and look so radient.
Cute pictures! Joy lives up to her name.
I LOVE ALL OF THE PICS I LOVE THE PICS OF JOY ANNA D
The black is great but knowing the duggars im sure the accessories would have been given advice
