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!
