LIFE via INSTAGRAM (Part Three) - June 20th to July 11th

Aaand we’ve reached the final installment of my Life via Instagram posts for the week. Recently I’ve worked on a few projects (two of which are still a secret) and tried out some new looks! Until next time…

  1. For an event I sported a slightly new hair look thanks to my friend Bryce Scarlett. What do you guys think?
  2. Hanging with my Wilhelmina agents… and yes, I made them do it.
  3. Full on reunion with Behati my favorite model last night - #COHATI is now in its 8th year!
  4. Smoothie time!! Posting this now before I blend it into a brown slurpee.
  5. Doing a little photo-challenge: I know you’re all masters of the selfie by now, but being a good model means being able to pose with someone else behind the camera. My challenge to you is to have a friend take a portrait of you and post it with the hashtags #notaselfie #mkdreambeautiful. Strike a pose and I’ll like my favorites!
  6. Working with Miss Veronica Chu on not one but TWO top secret projects today! Can’t wait to tell you all…
  7. My personal behind-the-scenes pics from my latest Blade Runner themed editorial for Citizen K with John-Paul Pietrus.
  8. All about the Prince ruffles in the city today. #takeifyouwillapicture #whendovescry
  9. Looking for the perfect gift for the fashionable welder in your family?

NYFW via INSTAGRAM (Part One) - February 5th to 7th

And so it is fashion month. Here is the first installment of this season’s Life via Instagram - #NYFW edition. At the beginning of this whirlwind week I got to see some pretty ladies, wear some cool clothes and celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the Model Alliance. 

  1. The #SuperBowl may be over, but the sex trafficking of young women around big events continues to be a shocking problem right here at home. Go to www.notsosuper.org to find out more. #notsosuper
  2. So excited to see my original model BFF Behati Prinsloo at #amfAR tonight!!!
  3. Hanging with the most glamorous girls of #amfAR: Ireland Baldwin and Gigi Hadid.
  4. The #selfeye is the new #selfie! Here’s mine wearing Max Factor UK’s Excess Volume Mascara! Now I wanna see you post yours! Don’t forget the #SelfEye hashtag.
  5. Much love to The Model Alliance on our 2nd anniversary today! So proud of our efforts - this New York Fashion Week will be the first with real legal protection for child models! Hope you all have a great week! Xx Coco
  6. NYC traffic is horrendous today, but I made it in time for my first show of NYFW - BCBG by Max Azria. Max was one of the earliest supporters of my career! #bcbglive
  7. My second look of the day is the Macy’s #MADE4Impulse line by my friends at Made Fashion Week! It’s the perfect little black dress. Get the look at www.macys.com.
  8. My outfit today - #MADE4Impulse skirt by Macy’s & Made FW paired with a Rebecca Minkoff top and bag. Snow courtesy of my backyard! #NYFW
  9. The other day I gave a private tour of the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum to a small group. Make sure you go to Brooklyn to see this amazing exhibit before it ends on February 23rd!

PARIS FASHION WEEK via INSTAGRAM - March 4th, 2013

And another installment of Life via Instagram during Paris Fashion Week! This time I check out the very first Ungaro collection by my friend Fausto Puglisi and discover that leopard print and polka dots will indeed be a ‘thing’ next season. I also go to the highly anticipated Saint Laurent Paris show, which is perfectly ’90s grunge-inspired. I personally think my friend Behati Prinsloo should be the new face of it!

  1. Supporting my amazingly talented friend Fausto Puglisi, who shows his first ever collection for Ungaro today in Paris!

  2. Print, shapes, shoulders, color! All the iconic charm of Emanuel Ungaro under the guiding hand of Fausto Puglisi. UNGARO IS BACK!

  3. Polka dots + leopard print + color. New trend alert! From Ungaro’s F/W 13 collection by Fausto Puglisi.

  4. Saint Laurent Paris at the Grand Palais - one of my all time favorite venues for Paris Fashion Week.

  5. Flannel, grunge and baby doll dresses galore at Saint Laurent Paris. Kurt and Courtney would have loved this one. 

  6. My last look in Paris courtesy of Fausto Puglisi. It was so nice to sit and watch some shows after 18 seasons of walking in them!

Gracia Urbana (Urban Grace) - Vogue Mexico
December, 2012 

My second editorial for next months Vogue Mexico took place in the center of the universe - aka - Times Square New York. Having shot everywhere from outside in the middle of a blizzard to a room literally on fire I can honestly say, here is probably no crazier place on earth for a model to shoot than Times Square in the middle of the day. All the tourists swarm and think you’re Mickey Mouse, stopping to point or take your picture. I remember at one point all the girls and guys working at Sephora came out of the store and were my own personal cheer leaders, it was amazing. Dewey Nicks the photographer would sometimes use a very long camera lens so often I was posing like a mad-woman with no apparent photographer around, leaving everyone to wonder what on earth this crazy baroque-looking ballerina was doing flailing her arms and legs in every direction. As a side note, many years ago I worked with Dewey on a shoot in the pacific north west with my friend Behati Prinsloo (remember this cute picture?). We spent half our time running around the forest, hiding from production, and just generally acting like 12 year olds so I’m sure it took him at least this long to take me seriously again! haha.

All clothing by Dolce & Gabbana, styling by Sarah Gore Reeves.
