Model Of the Week: Coco Rocha

This Canadian beauty was born in Toronto, but when she was very little she moved to British Columbia. She was discovered by agent Charles Stuart when she was just 14, while she was competing in an Irish dance Competition.

Coco met fashion photographer Steven Meisel in February 2006. Soon, she was featured in an editorial with the lovely Gemma Ward and Amanda Moore. That editorial kickstarted her career, landing her the cover of the February 2006 issue of Vogue Italy.

One of her most memorable moments was during Jean Paul Gaultier's Scottish Highlands inspired Fall/Winter 2007 show, where she opened the show by Irish Dancing down the runway, American Vogue dubbed this the "Coco Moment". I absolutely loved it, it reminded me that there are still "supermodels" in the fashion industry.

She has been on the covers of Vogue, Flare, Fashion, Numéro, French, W, Harper's Bazaar, Dazed & Confused, one of my favorites i-D magazine, Times Style & Design, among others.

Since her debut in 2006 she has been the face of lots of advertising campaigns such as American Manhasset, Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, The Gap, Tommy Hilfiger and Yves Saint Laurent.

There are two main reasons of why i love her, the first one is her high-fashion looks...there's no one that looks like Coco, the second one is that she is one of the very few models that have spoken out against the eating disorders and the whole anorexia look in the fashion industry

Love Milly
