This girl certainly needs no introduction. She might be a local, but her name is international.COCO ROCHA has worked with la crème de la crème of the fashion industry, becoming a muse to Jean-Paul Gauthier and family to Zac Posen.

 

 

Categorized as an Industry Icon on Models.com, she’s been the face of prestigious brands such as YSL and Chanel and has landed on the cover of magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and ID. Clearly a natural in front of the camera, she got cast as a coach on season 1 of The Face, and has collaborated with major Networks such as E! Canada and MTV.

Coco might be keeping busy, but her personal life doesn’t seem to be affected by her crazy schedule. She got married to British muralist James Conran in 2010 and gave birth to a lovely baby girl, Loni Conran, last year. You can already follow Loni on Instagram, where she proves to more than 48,5k followers that looking good in front of the lens runs in the family.

Speaking of social media, she understands its power and is fully aware that clients are suckers for followers; willing to pay big money for a post that will give them great exposure. One piece of advice that models are always given is to treat their image and personality as a brand, because guess what, they are.

Miss Rocha is clearly a good student; recycling what she’s learned from years of dancing, she quickly gained the title as the queen of posing. The way she moves and the consistent pace that she keeps as the photographer snaps a photo is what’s kept her in the game for so long.

In an industry where looks and faces are replaced every season, this Ontario native and beauty has managed to land some of the best gigs without ever taking her clothes off. She speaks in a world where you are told not to, whether it’s about weight, body issues, or anything else that matters to her. That’s how powerful branding can be, and that’s how smart Coco Rocha is.
