MILAN FASHION WEEK via INSTAGRAM - September 18th to 21st

You all know how much I love to reminisce. MFW was FUN! Jeremy Scott’s Barbie inspired collection won me over, as well as the gorgeous prints at Cavalli. Oh, and Versace gets the award for coolest fashion week invitations. Take me back to Milano please…

  1. Guess who made it to Milan Fashion Week!? At the discotastic if backstage of #dsquared2 to say hello to my Canadian boys.
  2. Decided to tone it down with this subtle and understated number for Moschino. #CocoPops
  3. It’s Barbies world, we all just live in it. Thanks #Moschino and Jeremy Scott for putting the fun back in fashion.
  4. My look the first half of the day at Milan Fashion Week - head to toe DSquared! 
  5. What’s as good as gold? Two front row tickets to Versace!
  6. And my MaxFactor glamour transformation with PatMcGrath is complete - featuring New Creme Puff Blush, Colour Intensifying Balm and Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Mascara.
  7. Cavalli’s Angels before the show.
  8. So honored to be an Event Chair at the Amfar event. Thank you to Bulgari and Versace for my look - feeling very “Dynasty” in the best way. 
  9. Last night in Versace, goodbye Milan! 

LFW via INSTAGRAM - February 14th to 16th 

Is it a throwback if it happened last week? I’m in yet another country right now, but I’m already reminiscing on the loveliness that was London Fashion Week.

  2. Front row at Julien MacDonald with the ladies of London Fashion Week: Eliza Doolittle, Abbey Clancy, Samantha Barks, Nina Nesbitt and Camilla Mackintosh. 
  3. Beautiful and intricate beading at Julien MacDonald
  4. Having a moment backstage at Henry Holland with Kelly Osbourne. Neither of us know why we are wearing coats like this. #FashionPolice 
  5. The Phantom of the Opera strikes at Henry Holland’s show! 
  6. It’s a beautiful day in London! I’m taking my DVF wrap on an 3-country tour this week. Stay tuned for my #JourneyOfADress story.
  7. Beautiful venue and impeccable tailoring at Pringle of Scotland.
  8. Change of clothes for the afternoon shows at #LFW. Jumpsuit by Sass & Bide, heels by Versace.
  9. Loved this jacket at Paul Smith. Also, the soundtrack was all Fleetwood Mac remixes, which made my afternoon!

Versace For H&M - Tonight!

Everyone in New York is talking about the big fashion show happening tonight: Versace for H&M! Prince and Nicki Minaj are the musical guests and I’m SO EXCITED to attend. I’ve been privileged to walk in quite a few Versace shows over the years, but never have I been to Versace as a guest in the audience! I took a look through the archive this evening to post some of my favorite Versace runway outfits and backstage memories. I particularly love the picture of a baby Karlie Kloss and I and the picture of Agyness Deyn, Behati Prinsloo and I from a show in 2007 - now that’s a terrible trio!

To see all my Versace runway pictures go to my archive at COCOROCHA.com


NAAG INTERVIEWBy Fiona Byrne March 10, 2011She’s a model. She’s a Canuck. She’s smart and sweet. And most importantly she’s the wife of Naag art director James Conran. Coco Rocha talks to us fresh from the Fall 2011 shows. 

Here we discover not only does James create awesome images — he creates sweet jewelry too. At least on on special occasions. But wait — this is about Coco! We discovered she werks a leather legging in her downtime and can still fit into a vest she had as a child!Who are you? Coco Rocha Conran Where do you live? New York, N.Y What do you do? Modeling pays the bills, the rest is for love or fun. What is the item in your closet you wear most often? Right now it’s my little orange Anna Sui dress that she gave me after walking in her show last month. It was my go-to outfit for Milan and Paris fashion weeks. What’s your preferred sunglasses brand? I’m a firm believer that you can’t go wrong with a pair of vintage Ray-Bans. What piece have you spent the most money on? One of the perks of being a model is that most of my clothes are given to me. However, two years ago, on the day of the Grammys I could NOT for the life of me find a good pair of shoes to go with my dress so I splurged on a pair of Versaces for an unmentionable amount. Where do you buy your socks? Are they plain or patterned? I haven’t bought socks in thousands of years. The last time I did, I think I bought them in Asia, in bulk. I only own plain socks — that way I don’t have to find their partner when doing laundry.

I have a pair of Rag and Bone pants I’ve probably worn weekly for the last six years. How they stay together, I have no idea.

I love mixing affordable with high fashion. What are you favorite places to shop online? Other than tickets I’ve never shopped online!

NAAG INTERVIEW

March 10, 2011

She’s a model. She’s a Canuck. She’s smart and sweet. And most importantly she’s the wife of Naag art director James Conran. Coco Rocha talks to us fresh from the Fall 2011 shows. 

Here we discover not only does James create awesome images — he creates sweet jewelry too. At least on on special occasions. But wait — this is about Coco! We discovered she werks a leather legging in her downtime and can still fit into a vest she had as a child!

Who are you?
Coco Rocha Conran

Where do you live?
New York, N.Y

What do you do?
Modeling pays the bills, the rest is for love or fun.

What is the item in your closet you wear most often?
Right now it’s my little orange Anna Sui dress that she gave me after walking in her show last month. It was my go-to outfit for Milan and Paris fashion weeks.

What’s your preferred sunglasses brand?
I’m a firm believer that you can’t go wrong with a pair of vintage Ray-Bans.

What piece have you spent the most money on?
One of the perks of being a model is that most of my clothes are given to me. However, two years ago, on the day of the Grammys I could NOT for the life of me find a good pair of shoes to go with my dress so I splurged on a pair of Versaces for an unmentionable amount.

Where do you buy your socks? Are they plain or patterned?
I haven’t bought socks in thousands of years. The last time I did, I think I bought them in Asia, in bulk. I only own plain socks — that way I don’t have to find their partner when doing laundry.

What item of clothing do you feel great in every time you put it on?
My Reiss leather leggings are like my second skin.

Do you wear a watch? If so, what kind?
I feel like the advancement of cell phones has been the kiss of death to watches. The last time I wore a watch was probably 10 years ago, right before my first flip phone.

What piece have you been wearing for the longest amount of time?
Did you ever think you would be still wearing it after all these time?
I have a pair of Rag and Bone pants I’ve probably worn weekly for the last six years. How they stay together, I have no idea. I also have a faux-fur vest that I got when I was 8 — I remember I hated it but now I wear it out and about all the time!

Chanel has some fun jewelry, but in general I like my cheapy costume jewelry… I do have a custom-designed engagement ring that my husband gave me. I guess he would be my favorite jewelry designer then!

When you need a quick affordable fashion fix, where do you go?
Depending on what city I’m in, either Zara or Topshop. I love mixing affordable with high fashion.

What are you favorite places to shop online?
Other than tickets I’ve never shopped online! I still like to touch or feel before buying… I know, I know, I’m so behind the times!

What are the last three things you bought online? (fashion or otherwise)
A last-minute plane ticket home to NY, tickets for James to see Prince and an out-of-print used book.
