  1. my girl!!!!!!!!!COCO ROCHA my favourite model forever!! I dont know whi she was on 8th on the 50 best models ranking and now she´s not!!Are they sayng that new models with 5, 6 or 7 works are on the ranking and coco that is doing great works is not there!!!

    PS:Love Behati Prinsloo …fresh new surprise!!

  2. Damn, Coco and James photo are like a scene snapped from an love romantic movie, they both look so nice;)

    and such inspiring article with Crystal Renn, she definitely knows herself well, no doubt that her career is such success.

  3. Yeah I dont understand why Coco was taken off your top 50 list last week. How can she have overnight gone from #8 to… #51 or higher?

    It just doenst make sense.

  4. i’m mad with took coco from #8 that silly she deserves that place there are more models that have less work than coco and they still in list….it just doenst make sense….i;m really mad

  5. actually i was surprised she was still on, she hasn’t been doing that much lately. and it’s not just coco that got removed, the top 10 is much better now, these are the girls booking the most high fashion campaigns, covers and editorials right now… it makes sense.

  6. Crystal & Coco are my favourite I got to work with each one in the last 10 days for the shoot of my fall catalogue They both define the moment : that sense of self , to be unique to celebrate your own style . Very inspiring makes you feel good to be different not to have to fit in with the norm or have the It bag or have the must have label …

  7. It’s respectable that Behati uses film in such a digital-base world. I do not mean to be offensive, but it is somewhat unfair that all one needs is a camera, and a supermodel best friend with a blog to have their photographs recognized instantaneously; meanwhile, countless hardworking photo students/individuals struggle to break into the ultra-competitive world of fashion photography – and use such high-fashion subjects – every day.

    Oh well. I guess that’s just how it goes.

  8. is anyone else COMPLETELY over and bored by the Coco rocha show? its so annoying. i am happy for her and all, but personally think its REALLY stupid to get married at 21, but she is the Queen of self promotion.

  9. Benjelee, wasn’t Coco actually “promoting” her good friend’s skills? And she did so on her personal blog. linked to it of their own choice, not hers.

    Every time a model speaks it could be considered “self promotion” I gues. But hey, if you dont want to from her, DONT READ.

    On a final note: Whats more stupid – getting married at 21 or acting like you know better than a total stranger whether or not THEY should marry?


  10. “IT GIRLS” of each year
    2005: Daria Werbowy year
    2006: Gemma Ward year
    2007: Agyness Deyn year
    2008: Coco Rocha year
    2009: Lara Stone year

    in other words theres always a change so coco cant be the best

  11. Wow. Can we see some real photographers please? Behati’s images look like a High School photo class assignment. OHHHHHH FILMMMMMM, who cares. What’s really sad is the amount of support and job opportunities she will get just from this being on Because when it comes to her actually getting a job she won’t have the experience to give them a good product. Stick to smiling for Vic Secret and let the professionals do their jobs.

  12. Coco looked super great in Vogue as a redhead, but then again, she looks great any way. Bring back Number 8, models com!

  13. Man there are some serious haters on here… Stop whining about happy people just having fun taking some pictures.

    Get off the computer and go have some yourself.

    They are just two girls.
    Chill out.
