And … Coco Rocha Cut All Her Hair Off, Too

I would like the record to show that I was way ahead of the pixie cut trend (ahem), and if I wasn’t a year and a half into growing my cut out, I’d so chop it all off again. The latest pixie cut ambassador? Model and “The Face” judge Coco Rocha, who’s apparently cut it…

Exclusive: “The Face” Contestants Dish On Naomi, Coco, Karolina & The Competition

Have you been watching “The Face”? If not, check it out. It’s a modeling competition, yes, but unlike any others out there. Each contestant is paired with a mentor — Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha or Naomi Campbell — and competes against models on the other mentor’s teams. The challenges are real world and the products,…

“The Face” Has Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha & Karolina Kurkova Putting Their Best Faces Forward

If you, like us, have been feeling like the latter seasons of “America’s Next Top Model” have been a little gimmicky and lackluster, well, we’ve got a new show for you — one with three times the Tyra Banks star power. “The Face” is a modeling competition show, but unlike “ANTM,” the models will be…

Meet The 24 Faces Of New Modeling Competition Show “The Face”

Admit it: “America’s Next Top Model” has gotten stale over the last five zillion “cycles.” As much as we love Tyra there’s only so much of her histrionics and ridiculous, over-the-top photoshoots (Be a bear! Pose with a tarantula! In the snow!) we can take. And the Oxygen network is banking on that, by introducing…

Model Coco Rocha Slams Brazil’s Elle Magazine For Half-Naked Photoshop Job

“As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photoshoots. For my recent [Elle Brasil] cover shoot I wore a body suit under a sheer dress, but recently discovered that the body suit was Photoshopped out to give the impression that I am showing much…

Steven Meisel Creates Crazy, Trashy, Amazing GIFs For Vogue Italia

Never thought you’d see a supermodel with the track of her weave showing, did you? Famed photographer and (in my opinion) total creative genius Steven Meisel is already known for his exceptionally provocative work (see: his fantastic “Supermodels Enter Rehab” editorial), but he’s taken it a step further with a preview for Vogue Italia’s spring…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The “The Iron Lady” Premiere

A little birdie (that would be me) attended the New York City premiere of “The Iron Lady” last night and boy, were there a lot of celebs! Somehow I managed to stand three feet away from Meryl Streep without screetching “EEEE! I LOVE YOU!” and subsequently getting arrested. Somehow I doubt Amelia could exercise similar…

Coco Rocha’s Been Told She’s “Too Big” And “Too Thin” To Model

I look at Coco Rocha and see a pretty woman. But casting directors have looked at the runway model and told her she is “too fat” and, recently, “too big” to be hired. Coco and model Carré Otis visited “Anderson” to talk about ways to protect models who start as teen girls, a subject they…

Coco Rocha Wore Nine West Pumps—What Was Your First Interview Outfit?

Coco Rocha tells Modelinia that for her first casting—an audition to model for Prada—she depended on a pair of Nine West pumps to make an impression:
“I had to buy my first ‘casting shoes’ which were these high stilettos. Pointy, black … I didn’t even know how to walk in them. So I ran out…

Watch Coco Rocha’s Wedding Video, Weep

The Cut puts it best: “The videos Coco Rocha just posted of her wedding are either a wonderful or wonderfully cruel thing to thrust in your face on a rainy Monday morning.” Too true. Watch as the 21-year-old model marries James Conran in a French castle, and your dream of getting married at…

Model Coco Rocha Clears Up Her “Fat” Controversy On Her Blog

In between catwalks, model Coco Rocha took to her blog, Oh So Coco, yesterday to clear up some of the drama surrounding reports earlier this week that she had complained about being too large to walk the runway. The New York Daily News wrote that Rocha, a size four, has insinuated she was “out of…

Pin Thins Take Over Fashion Week & Coco Rocha Is “Too Big” To Walk

Model Coco Rocha has just claimed that she’s a runway-reject at 5′ 10″ and a size 4, and the fashion industry is getting more flack for its pin-thin models. Steven Kolb, of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, stood by the skinny standard and called the runway a world of fantasy where genetically svelte…

Coco Rocha Is Vogue Korea’s Legend Of Fall

The delightful Coco Rocha graces the cover of Vogue Korea’s October issue and stars in this “Legend of Fall” spread. In subdued hues — black, grays, blues, tans, and a few shocks of color — the 21-year-old Toronto native eschews this season’s urban warrior garb for pretty, tailored looks with a touch of bohemian flair.

Models — (They Blog) Just Like Us!

Models have finally caught on to this whole blogging thing—and, man, are they into it. Coco Rocha has her own blog, “Oh So Coco,” and just recently graduated to her own Twitter feed. Sessilee Lopez, not to be outdone, has a site where she talks about the “daily grind” that is being a model i…

Quick Pic: Zac Posen And Coco Rocha Share A Dress

Designer Zac Posen thought he was underdressed at last night’s Friends of New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance, so he borrowed part of model Coco Rocha’s dress. Luckily, it matched his tux. [New York City, 4/15/09]…

Coco Rocha Has A Blog

Model of the moment Coco Rocha has a blog: Oh So Coco. The 20-year-old, Toronto-born model, who once famously Irish stepdanced down Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway, offers a peek behind the scenes at days in the life of a fashion plate. She hopes a woman on the street who takes her photograph, sans makeup, ha…
