Coco speaks out

June 13th, 2008 Posted by Betty comments (2)

There has been much said about the CFDA event, “Beauty of Health” and the involvement of Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenburg and supermodel Coco Rocha. MDC asked Coco herself for a personal take on it, “What is the most important thing you want to convey to the aspiring models out there?” Her answer? “For girls that want to be models, my advice is to make sure you are healthy and you do all you can to take care of your body. The girls that succeed are usually the ones who have personality. Finally, stand for what you believe in and you’ll go far!

Well said, Miss Rocha! And kudos for being so honest and taking part in this much needed discussion.

    Wow! You managed to omit anything of substance in what she said.

    Actually, she said a lot of substance at the event, which is why we linked to the other stories… This is post event, and we asked her specifically what she wanted to convey to the aspiring models since so many of them read our site. She probably wanted to end everything on a positive, encouraging note.
