Rocha in Milan, shot by Scott Schuman

Hailing from Toronto, my hometown, Coco Rocha is one of the world’s most recognizable faces in the fashion industry. From her infamous Irish dance down Gaultier’s runway in 2007, to opening and closing the Louis Vuitton show, Rocha’s almost overnight success took the fashion world by storm. Ms. Naomi Campbell herself told Coco backstage at the 2006 Anna Sui fashion show that she was “her favourite new model.” Now, if a supermodel tells you this, then you know that you’ve made it.

Vera Wang SS10.

Eyebrows, hair, shoes, and the dress. Everything. Amazing. This was the finale dress of her collection, which was also a great way to end the show.

HOLY HELL, BATMAN. Yes, this is an actual editorial that is in Vogue Paris for September. It isn’t photoshopped. THE HORROR! If you haven’t already noticed, I’m referring to the atrocious font. Although, Sasha does make up for the poor choice in font… and colour. She looks bitchin’ in this editorial, but really? Bubble gum pink, in a font that’s named ‘Curlz’. Yes, with a ‘z’.

Typographers all over the world are currently crying themselves to sleep. I mean, how can such a font make it into the pages of Vogue Paris? Did Ms. Roitfeld have no say in any of this? I assure you, she would NOT have picked this font for an editorial. Currently learning about typography myself, I gasped at the sight of this abomination. I might be overreacting, but hell. This is Vogue Paris, for Lagerfeld’s sake.

The one and only Naomi “She Threw Her Cellphone At Me” Campbell, modeling for Harper’s Bazaar in the September issue. Straddling a crocodile or riding an elephant sans safety equipment aren’t exactly the most safe thing to do. She demonstrates what lengths models would go for the sake of fashion.

This editorial was shot by Jean Paul Goude, whose former muse is Grace Jones. He is also famous for his campaigns with Chanel featuring Vanessa Paradis.
