Coco Rocha

Chest- 33
Waist- 25
Hips- 35
Dress (UK)- 8
Shoe-  7

This is my first Model Profile on possibly my favourite model, Coco Rocha.

She was spotted at an Irish Dancing Competition in 2002 and at the age of 16 in 2004 she began her modelling career. Since then she has been the face of many ad campiagns such as Rimmel, Chanel and Lanvin, walked the runway for a multitude of designer like Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney and even danced down the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier; as well as boasting covers and spreads with some of the most famous fashion magazines: Numero, Elle, Bazaar and, of course, Vogue to name a few.

Not only is she gorgeous but she also has the ability to bring an atmosphere and emotion to a photograph. She doesn't simply put her hand on her hip with a smile in her eyes, she really brings a character, and I think that she has one of, if not, the best variety of expressions and movements I have seen when it comes to the models I have studied. As well as being beautiful and talented she also has a great personality! With some of the most well-known designers and models phoning her just for a chat she must have something going for her which is clearly evident if you watch her interviews or backstage footage.

She also started a very controversial debate by refusing to loose weight during fashion week and even speaking out against the aneorexic craze at the time. Her standing up against these insane expecations contributed to many events putting a ban on exessively skinny models which, to me, is something I respect her greatly for.

Boasting a powerful and sexy walk with boundless amounts of presence as well as  good looks, personality and amazing skills infront of the camera, it's no wonder she's considered one of the worlds top models.
I love you Coco!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while guys, I've been extremely busy with school and prelims and haven't had a chance to put a decent outfit together! However they're finished now -hopefully having went well- and I will try and update again tomorrow or Wednesday :)

Fake Flowers

Hairband- DIY
Dress- Vintage
Thigh highs- Primark
Belt- Primark
Shoes- New Look
Jewlerry- Mostly vintage or passed down to me
I finally got around to making that DIY headband and I love the way it came out! It was really easy and it only took me about an hour so I definetly suggest making one to anyone who likes it.
I went to Ikea a few days ago and got this really cute retro clock for my wall, it's so lovely but I can't find anywhere to fit it!
Today I just went shopping with some friends in the horrible weather that we always seem to have and bought lilac hair dye and bleach so I should have lilac dip dye soon! :)

As much as I would like to update this blog every one or two days it's been quite difficult recently as I'm currently sitting my higher prelims so it should be alot more frequent after this week :)
Wish me luck!

Black Cherry

Dress - Topshop
Cardiagn - Primark
Pull-ups - Primark
Bag - ebay
Shoes - New Look
Jewellery - Topshop

I went shopping for some new furniture for my room yesterday and ended up only picking out a clock! Although I made up for it by buying things I didn't need (as you do) like this pretty floral shirt from zara for £4.99 and some fake flowers to make a headband out of.
I've seen a few D.I.Y headbands on here such as Autilas' feathered version which I love, and they all turned out beautifully so I thought I might aswell give it a go, I'll post the result tomorow haha.
I got some new lipstick too and I was desperate to wear it. It's called Black Cherry and it's by Revlon; turns out my mum wore that exact shade when she was my age! It didnt leave me desperate to slap on lipbalm like most lipsticks do and it wasn't too expensive, about £7 if I remember correctly, and I think the colour is gorgeous so I'd definetly recommend it!

Tonight I'm catching up with some friends for a few drinks to get a break from all this prelim and study stress!
What is everyone else doing tonight?

Shopping With Mum

bralet-river island
shoes-new look

Today I went with my mum to get her hair done followed by some shopping. I picked up a bikini and sunglasses from primark and some heels from new look all for just £16! Pretty pleased with myself :)
Since then I've just been helping to decorate and studying when I can; still not heard from uni so I have very little motivation at the moment!
On a weirder note, I got a nice slouchy cardigan from a vintage store in glasgow last week and my mums fairly convinced that I brought a ghost with it. I'll just see how that pans out... haha

Dislike: Has anyone else heard of some new street light plan in the UK? Apparantly there are plans being made to either dim or completely switch off street lights in certain areas after 12am. I don't know about you guys but I really don't fancy walking home in the pitch dark, heels and torch in hand at 3 in the morning :/

Like: I can't stop listening to White Lies at the moment, probably the last one to jump on the band wagon but hey ho :)

What has everyone else been dancing away to?

The New Guy

I am completely new to the whole blogging thing but I was following so many I thought I might aswell give it a go!
I love fashion and I am currently waiting to here back on UCAS wether I have recieved a place on a fashion business course or not: fingers crossed!
My main goal would be to become a fashion journalist or designer and I'm doing some modelling on the side of my studies right now so this is very a fashion orientated blog for me :)
I'll be posting my thoughts on the latest fashion, some outfits and maybe a weekly model or designer profile, who knows!
Right now I just want to say how much I want to dip dye my hair lilac!
