Stratospherically rising fashion star and Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha is covering the front of this month's Fashion Magazine, wearing a dreamy $12,000 pink Valentino dress, a decadent $750 Shourouk necklace, and $490 Mawi ring. Renowned for being a chameleon shape-shifter, for this shoot her naturally red hair is coloured a dark chocolate hue and scraped back to show off her precision bangs, fuchsia lips, and flicked out eyes.
Coco's interview is simple, outlying her agenda on following her convictions, her thoughts on motherhood, and discussing her new job with Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova. What that entails is a role on the upcoming reality TV series, The Face, a new modelling competition in the vein of America's Next Top Model for which Coco will be a mentor.
The Richmond, BC, native tells the mag, "It’s fascinating having three different mentors on the show — Naomi being the generation of the original supermodel Trinity, Karolina being part of the whole Victoria’s Secret world and me, who’s known for edgy editorial."
Edgy editorial and, of course, speaking out against size-zero models are just two of the reasons why 24-year-old Coco, though young, will make the perfect mentor to any wannabe catwalk kittens. As the devout Jehovah's Witness explained, "It’s important for every model to have a voice. When I started modelling, people said to me, 'You're going to have to throw away your beliefs in order to be a successful model.' But I didn’t."
Don't you just love her confidence and level-headedness? She never partakes in ads that promote violence or nudity, regularly takes stands against those who use underage models, and shuns mags or ads "that misuse Photoshop," although I'm not quite sure what she means by "misuse." Is that when they shop 30 pounds off a girl's butt or does it also apply to airbrushing the occasional pimple?
Either way, I think she's a good choice for The Face, so are you excited to see our Canadian homegirl on Oxygen?
