A Female Model

Last time, I posted something about my #1 favorite male model & now, I will be sharing with you my favorite female model. When adoring someone, I am not taking into consideration about the people's perspective but what is important to me is that they truly deserve the things that they are receiving from the audience. We have to admit that sometimes, we love the certain personality because he/she have many fans and thus we get influenced by them. Many of us likes Victoria's Secret Angels, I have nothing against 'em & I also love 'em but I have a thought that sometimes we think that they are the best models just because they happen to be modeling those gorgeous lingerie of the very famous brand.   I chose this model as my #1 fav. because I thought that she is really born to be a model and she definitely one of the best and talented models in the world.period! :)

So, my ultimate favorite female model is no other than
tingin pa lang, fierce na!
 Rocha is a 23 year-old model who  was born in TorontoOntario, and grew up in RichmondBritish Columbia where she attended McRoberts secondary school. Her family is in the airline industry. Her mother, Juanita, is a flight attendant and her father, Trevor Haines, is a ticket manager. She has one step sister named Lynsey.She is of IrishRussian, and Welsh descent.

ganon ba mag-ayos ng hair? lol!
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 the Associated 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. 
Rocha married James Conran on June 9, 2010. Her wedding dress was designed by Zac Posen. 

iba magalit idol ko, nagiging CATTLE! bwahaha
In 2002, agent Charles Stuart approached Rocha at an Irish dance competition and asked her if she would consider modelling for him. At that point, she had never thought of modelling before. When she did begin to model, her knowledge of fashion was limited. She eventually gained insight into the fashion world after her best friends crammed in fashion study sessions in between studying for exams.

ganito maglaba ang mga model. laban ka?
Rocha started her professional career in 2004, signing with SUPREME in New York City. Two years later, Rocha met fashion photographerSteven Meisel. Soon, she was featured in an editorial with Gemma Ward and Amanda Moore. The editorial kickstarted her career, landing her the cover of the February 2006 issue of Vogue Italia. The week after, she walked the Spring/Summer 2006 New York City runways for a handful of designers, most notably Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs. Backstage at the Anna Sui show, Rocha met model Naomi Campbell, who held her hands and told her she was "her new favourite model". After the New York Fashion Week, she soon followed by taking part in theParis Fashion Week as well. She walked for esteemed designers like Stella McCartneyShiatzy ChenChristian Lacroix, and Emanuel Ungaro, and was chosen by Marc Jacobs to open and close his Louis Vuitton show

now I know kung bakit pinagpapawisan talaga ang mga tennis players 
During Jean Paul Gaultier's Scottish Highlands-inspired Fall/Winter 2007 show in February 2007, Rocha opened the show by Irish-dancing down the runway; American Vogue dubbed this the "Coco Moment" and suggested it as a sign that the fashion industry misses the "supermodels"
nagulat si tita. 'wag daw oa magreact! :P
In the May 2007, issue of Vogue (US), she was featured on the cover with fellow models Doutzen KroesCaroline TrentiniRaquel ZimmermannSasha PivovarovaAgyness DeynJessica StamHilary RhodaChanel Iman, and Lily Donaldson as the new crop of supermodels. In 2008 casting agent James Scully, who is responsible to pick which model is to score a spot on top runways, says in regards to Rocha:
 “I will be the first to admit I did not believe the hype, but within five seconds of meeting her, I was totally charmed and understood why everyone loves her. Some people feel her look is specific, but I find her to be the most chameleon-like of all the girls.”

fur kung fur at floral kung floral! itodo na kahit  head-shot lang. hahaha

In July 2011, Coco Rocha became the first high fashion model to be photographed by the Lytro Camera, the camera takes what the company calls a “living picture,” meaning that it captures enough visual information in a single exposure so that the focus and zoom can be adjusted even after the picture is taken. Rocha said she reached out to the company after reading about them on the website Mashable.

On October 19, 2011 she appeared as a guest judge alongside Tyra Banks where she was frequently referred to as "The Queen of Posing" on "America's Next Top Model."

Here's a video why she deserves to be called as the Queen of Posing:
