Meet internationally renowned and all-round lovely Supermodel Coco Rocha, mum and entrepreneur  who visited Sydney last month as the Ambassador for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival 2015. This woman is amazing – not only is she gorgeous – she’s incredibly down to earth and extremely funny! I got the chance to catch Coco for a quick chat one-on-one.  

It’s not everyday you get to sit down and chat with a longed limbed, high cheek boned, sharp-witted supermodel.

Coco Rocha - Monica BestekCoco hails from Canada, first making her mark on the scene in 2007 when she Irish danced down the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Scottish Highlands-inspired Fall/Winter collection. She’s since grown into an influential icon in the fashion industry, featuring on the cover of numerous magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar and walking as a firm favourite on the international runways for the likes of Versace, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. 

Coco has recently produced a book ‘Study of Pose’. This inspiring publication contains 1000 poses in which her slender physique is transformed into stunning works of art. A talent that has gained her over a million instagram followers, another example of how this beauty is changing the game and taking control of her modelling career.  

Rocha is an extremely busy lady, having travelled to Vancouver – Honolulu – Sydney – New York – Paris – London over the last three weeks and bringing her adorable bub Ioni along with her. Supermodel, Supermum – and quite the expert juggler – I sat down with Coco to talk about all things off the runway.
