Being a model in today’s world is as much about being personable as it is about walking the runway or posing for photographs. “Because I have a voice and I’m sticking to having that voice, I feel like I have extended my career,” active social mediaist Coco Rocha told the Huffington Post earlier this year. Indeed, Coco has not only a Twitter and Facebook account, she also has her own personal blog where she uploads everything from videos and editorials she’s featured in to never before seen or heard tidbits about her life as one of the world’s biggest supermodels.
While Coco was one of the first models to start her own blog, it wasn’t long before other supermodels jumped aboard the online platform. Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, and Hilary Rhoda are just a few of the models who are now all active Tumblr users. In honor of Internet Week, here are five supermodel bloggers you have to follow.
