Coco Rocha by Alex Cayley for The Sunday Telegraph Spring 2011
Coco Rocha has a fantastic personality. And it always comes across in her work. She has this quirky playfulness that manifests itself in some fabulously unique posing and faces. Thrilling in various shades of coral, she comes across strong, sophisticated, and off-beat in the best possible way. Her frame and posing are always so eloquent; she folds her arms like they’re origami shapes. Not to mention she’s modeling some of my favorite pieces for the spring season. The Haider (featured above) is somehow structured, sexy, and loose all in one. And she is oh so strong in that Lanvin dress (shot 7). I think what I love best about her is that she is unafraid to come across “ugly.” She constantly strives for better lines, more unique posing, and more personable shots. There is no wall with her. Which is great to see in this industry.
