This year has been a busy one for Coco. She’s appeared in numerous editorials and campaigns, including Lanvin, H&M, Rimmel London, as well as Coca-Cola and was even selected to be the face of Karl Lagerfeld's new Impulse offering at Macy's. She's also a seasoned runway veteran walking the catwalk for high-end designers like Oscar de la Renta. Coco was outfitted in this geometric patterned mermaid gown with peplum detail for the designer’s show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2009. For the New York premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor back in March 2009, she opted for another designer, Jason Wu. The Fall 2009 combination consisted of a burgundy sweater and a printed skirt as well as an eye-catching statement necklace.

When it came time for the Supima 3rd Annual Design Competition in January 2010, the model looked fashion-forward in a futuristic Victor de Souza Spring 2010 ensemble. Her strong shouldered jacket was further complemented by a coordinating corseted belt. Coco was named Best Model at the ELLE Style Awards 2011 this February. She proved why she deserved the award by working this cream lace Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 dress paired with white T-strap pumps.

The New York premiere of One Day at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 theatre in August saw Coco sporting a floor-length white column Max Azria strapless gown with silver scroll detailing. At the 49th Annual New York Film Festival premiere of My Week with Marilyn last month, she skipped the fancy dress and opted for a menswear-inspired ensemble. This blue blazer with exaggerated lapel came from Zac Posen’s Fall 2011 collection and was partnered with a front-tie ivory blouse, matching skinny pants and black booties.

It was another Zac Posen number for the 15th Annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards earlier this month. She polished off the sophisticated look with Coco Rocha for Senhoa jewelry.
