A person you admire
I guess we all know by now that I admire Grace Coddington, so I thought that I would pick someone new to write about.
So, I’ve picked Coco Rocha. One of my favorite models. Ever.
She is a 21-year-old Canadian model who has been in the business since 2002. She became famous for Irish step dancing down Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway show.
But I admire her because she has grown up, into her body, and is now a size 4 and one of the most successful models in the world. She also openly speaks out about eating disorders in the modeling industry and has also made her personal struggles public.
I also love that she doesn’t do nude or smoking shots.
Coco Rocha knows who she is. She knows how far is too far and won’t go past her pre-set limit.
In a New York Times article she is quoted as saying, “It took me a long time in the business to realize I didn’t have to do everything people told me I should if I wanted a career.”
On June 9, she is getting married (in a Zac Posen dress) to interior designer, James Conran, and I couldn’t be happier for her.
