Coco Rocha hits the Red Carpet….

Coco Rocha is so tall….of course she is, she is a model but she has legs that go up to her neck, am so jealous. She is of Irish, Russian and Welsh Descent which explains her natural beauty.

Rocha is one of the few models who has spoken out against the prevalence of eating disorders in the modelling industry. In an open letter to the New York Times, Coco spoke out on her blog about the pressure the fashion industry puts on young models “How can any person justify an aesthetic that reduces a woman or child to an emaciated skeleton? Is it art? Surely fashion’s aesthetic should enhance and beautify the human form, not destroy it.” In an email to theAssociated Press, she gives an insight into the fashion world, saying: “I’ll never forget the piece of advice I got from people in the industry when they saw my new body … They said, ‘You need to lose more weight. The look this year is anorexia. We don’t want you to be anorexic but that’s what we want you to look like. I love her for standing up and talking about this and standing firm in her belief.

I also admire her for designing her our jewelry with girls in Cambodia that were rescued from  Sex Trade, a charity very close to my heart.
