We knew Coco Rocha was exceptionally talented. Let’s be honest, she’s a model, dancer, blogger, social media star, philanthropist … the list goes on and on.
But now she’s adding one more skill to her repertoire - journalism.
For her very first article, which was published in the new issue of Elle UK, Coco interviewed Cindy Crawford and Iman to discuss the ever relevant topic of model’s past, present, and future, as well as how the experience is different for Coco and said icons. What resulted is an expertly written article, with deep quotes from both supers regarding their relationship with the industry along with their fears and hopes for the future.
Throughout the piece, Coco provides background for her history as well as Cindy and Iman’s, rounding the article out to serve as a lesson, thought provoking piece, and a call to action for the industry. At the very end, Coco touches on a sentiment felt daily by Modelinia, by saying, “It seems that people today are more interested in models than they have been in a long time. Social media has allowed the public to view models as real people once again, and more than just pretty faces - top model Karen Elson created a hit album last year and Anja Rubik has her own magazine. Models like Agyness Deyn and myself are tweeting and blogging to thousands of fans daily. Is the wave rising again? Are we on the cusp of a backlash to a backlash?”
