In fashion, you can always count on history to repeat itself. First spotted at Burberry’s autumn/ winter 2014 catwalk show on an army of models led by Cara Delevingne, blankets are a key trend to look out for once the cooler weather sets in. This seasons the models have resurrected the old medieval favorite: the cape, but with monograms (we’re obsessed).

Each model stunner rocks their monogrammed Burberry cape in different ways from dressed up to dressed down and everything in between. Earlier this week, Rosie was seen wearing the poncho with a pair of sexy black suede over-the-knee-boots matching her black monogrammed initials printed on the stunning cape.

EXCLUSIVE: Coco Rocha Created 1000 Poses for Her New Book “Study of Pose”

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.
