Coco Rocha, a supermodel known for her versatility, just released her first-ever published book Study of Pose to show off her breathtaking talent and teach others the art of the pose.. The book showcases the 26-year-old Canadian model posing in 1,000 different ways wearing just a simple, tan leotard, which by the way only, “[Took] three days. Although, I keep saying I think we could have done it in one day,” said Rocha in our interview last week. Blurring the worlds of fashion and dance over the years, her expressive body language quickly gained her the nickname “Queen of Pose”, and her range of curves and contorted twists have featured her in campaigns for the likes of Chanel, Longchamp, Dolce & Gabanna and Christian Dior. The former Face coach, who worked with famed photographer Steven Sebring on the project, admits it was a challenging task but completely doable– of course it was she’s the posing pro! Sebring shot all 1,000 poses on what he calls his “rig”: a geodesic dome filled with cameras that shoot simultaneously, producing images that can be viewed from 360 degrees. The “rig” is the same camera that Rocha used to video her pregnancy announcement. This December, Coco and Steven will be releasing an app version of the book — which will include renderings of each pose visible from 360 degrees and we cannot wait to download it. Last week, Modelinia spoke with the mother-to-be about details on the book, revealing her favorite pose and what she’s most looking forward to about being a mother.

The Internet has been abuzz today about brunette beauty Myla Dalbesio and whether or not her size 10 frame constitutes being “plus-size.” She recently landed a coveted spot in Calvin Klein’s new lingerie campaign “Perfectly Fit” and we for one couldn’t be me more obsessed with the campaign since we love to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes.
Myla Dalbesio sat down with Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie to discuss becoming Calvin Klein’s newest underwear model, prompting conversation online about body type and size. “Life doesn’t work in only extremes. True body diversity is everything and everyone. It’s a range of sizes and shapes. It’s not just super skinny or just larger,” Dalbesi said. She continues to say, “I think it’s really unfortunate because I think that Calvin Klein has done something that’s really groundbreaking, which is, they released this campaign with what some would say is a normal sized model, a size 10, I’m a size 10. Size 10 girls, there’s not a lot of spots for us to fit in, in the fashion industry. They released this campaign with me right alongside all of the other girls of varying shapes and sizes and didn’t make a fuss about it.”

But you might not have been officially introduced to one rising social media star: the #shelfier!

THE ever-helpful Cara Delevingne knows just what you want for Christmas: a stocking filled with tiny leather treats from Mulberry, each created by her own fair hand – or at least from her own quirky imagination. Featuring wallets, purses, iPad sleeves, phone covers, zipped pouches, and passport holders, the range is created in camouflage-printed leather (inspired by Delevingne’s love of hiding from her teachers at school), and classic Mulberry oak – and has thus-far proved almost as well-liked as the girl herself. ~ Vogue.com
