My mentor and friend Coco Rocha was nice enough to send me some pieces from her new collection for Bauble Bar. I’m completely obsessed with the statement earrings, necklaces and rings that she’s designed for this collaboration and I can’t wait to wear them out! Check out and purchase her full collection here.
Model Margaux Brooke, who was made famous as a contestant on Coco Rocha’s competition television series “The Face”, let Milk Made follow her around during her very first time as a working model during New York Fashion Week. Here, in her own words, she shares her story exclusively with Milk Made.
Hung out with this lady yesterday in Hollyweird. Got some sush with our hubbies (yes I just condensed the word sushi to sush), caught up on all things modelly and real life. It was super, mega, fun times! Love it when Coco visits my side of the country!
I spent over a month mentoring and teaching Stephanie while filming The Face. Stephanie had never taken a professional photo in her life, but I hand-picked her from a group of far more “experienced” models to join my team because she had something that even years of training can’t give a model - Stephanie has character and that always shows through in my line of work. Over the course of filming I noticed that other industry veterans were also seeing what I saw in her. Stefano Tonchi, editor-in-chief of W Magazine said on-camera that of all the girls in the competition, Stephanie’s face was the “most modern” and that he could see her on many runways today. Even Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova, who at times had an opportunity to send Stephanie home, allowed her to stay because she was making faster progress and had more passion than anyone else.
I had 5 weeks to work with Stephanie, day in and day out, and she truly soaked it all in like a sponge. I could not be prouder of her and excited to see where her career takes her next. In fact, I’m heading to Montreal to see her today!
Our model of the month Margaux from The Face is simply irresistible. We worked with the infamous Coco Rocha last May, and this May we worked with her protégée Margaux from The Face. She’s not only got an amazing face, but such a fun personality.
