Blame Canada for our most recent model obsession, because this is the land that produced the stunning Coco Rocha. The fall face of Balenciaga has been turning up everywhere-from showcasing spring's best wares in this month's Vogue to catwalking in just a handful of the Spring 2007 shows (like Anna Sui, Balenciaga, Bottega, Burberry, Dior, Hermes, Lanvin, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Narciso, Proenza, Rag & Bone, Rodarte, Thakoon, Valentino, Versace, Victor & Rolf, YSL, Zac Posen to name a few).
Coco's also one of Steven MeiselĀ's current musesĀ--they collaborated on three different stories for three different months in Italian Vogue last year. We just adore her Zoolander-like natural pout, mane of auburn/chestnut hair, and personality galore (as noted in all her backstage snaps). Plus, she has one of the most up-to-date model websites around. We like this northern exposure.
