As I mentioned in my blog post a few weeks back, there is no crazier location to shoot than Times Square, New York, in the middle of the day. Here are a few of my personal behind-the-scenes shots from the Vogue Mexico shoot. My all-time favorite is the one where Woody from Toy Story is just passively standing to the side watching me model Dolce & Gabbana. I have a very, very strange life. To see the actual editorial go HERE. Xx Coco
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 BehatiPrinsloo (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.
Going for the gold in my second and third of three golden themed covers I did for this month’s Vogue Mexico. Yes, that signature is printed on the cover - so if you didn’t win one of the 10 signed Vs. Magazines up for grabs yesterday, this could be the next best thing.

Sin Límite (Unlimited) - Vogue Mexico December, 2012
It’s been 2 years since Vogue Mexico last asked me to be the cover girl and at that time it was for their 50th Anniversary Issue (click HERE). I’m very happy to be back on the cover and able to show you the first of two editorials I did for the latest magazine. Its always fun to change things up a littler and in this shoot I went back to being a red-head for the day. You might remember me teasing with a little behind-the-scenes image a few months back (click HERE) leading many to think I had actually dyed my hair, again.
Stay tuned for the next shoot, it involves me modeling in the center of the universe… ;)
