I Should Coco


Coco Rocha is s such a striking model, I love her face and posture. She’s been the face of popular advertising campaigns for some of the top fashion labels and beauty brands. 

Coco has been lighting up the international runways since 2004, walking for some of the world’s foremost designers, from Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs to Stella McCartney and Emanuel Ungaro. In recent years, she has achieved supermodel status with partnerships with some of the industry’s biggest names and labels. Coco was named one of the top 30 models of the decade in 2009 by Vogue Paris. The following year, she was awarded Model of the Year in Paris at Marie Claire’s Prix d’Excellence and the Elle Style award for Model of the Year in London. 

Coco is involved with several charities, and currently participates in the Seventeen Magazine Body Peace Council, where she helps promote healthy body image to young women. In June 2011, Coca and husband designer James Conran received awards for their philanthropic work at a fashion event in Manhattan.
