cocorocha In today's installment of #SundayStories - why Steven Meisel once stopped a Vogue shoot to have me watch a DVD. I've always believed that models should be like actresses from the silent era of motion pictures - able to convey a story or emotion with just their face and pose. For me the best shoots are always the ones that have a theme or story behind them, where the model gets to play a real character that both she and the camera enjoy. The picture you see here is from one of the editorials I shot, styled by #GraceCoddington for @VogueMagazine while they were filming their documentary "The September Issue" back in 2007. For this particular shot #StevenMeisel told me that I would be playing a version of #AudreyHepburn's character in the film 'Funny Face'. The only problem was, I'd never seen that movie. Back in those days we didn't all have smart phones with access to YouTube so Steven sent a producer out to go find the DVD and bring a laptop for me to watch it on. He could have just shown me a still from the movie but he knew I was a huge musical fan so he let me watch the whole movie on set. I remember sitting in @PatMcGrathReal's makeup chair watching the movie with headphones on while the other models like @sashapivovarovareal, #GemmaWard and Caroline @trentinireal came in and out of their shots. Finally, I finished the movie and was ready for my close up... 9h

cocorocha As much as I love the physical #StudyOfPose book, we've taken those 1000 poses 100 steps further in the digital app which was just released! Each of the 1000 poses are now viewable from 100 different angles, meaning, there are literally 100,000 beautiful images that make up this compendium! It's the future of digital art books and has never been done before - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/study-of-pose/id957822058?mt=8 5d

cocorocha Can't believe it's been a whole year since @CNN invited me to cover the #Oscars! My hair has grown a half foot and so has my belly! I wish I could be there again tonight but I'm in the no-fly-zone of my pregnancy so I'll be watching from the comfort of my couch with @JamesEdwardConran, @CSiriano and @bradwalsh! Who else is joining? 1w

cocorocha In today's weekly installment of #SundayStories - What do you get when you mix one part #CocaCola, one part #CocoChanel and one part #CocoRocha? I remember how excited I was when I got the call to work on this project for Coke, especially when I found out it was #KarlLagerfeld behind the design of the bottle and the camera. We shot at Karl's private studio in Paris which is actually set inside this giant two story room lined from floor to ceiling with every beautiful book you can imagine (You can see a picture of it in @KendallJenner's latest instagram from yesterday, it's such an inspiring space). Karl nearly always designs during the day and shoots photos at night. I've never met anyone like him, he works creatively literally 24/7. On set with @KarlLagerfeld is always a luxurious affair. There's Karl's professional chef who creates amazing meals for the entire crew and Karl's full time butler serving an endless supply of... what else... diet coke in a crystal goblet. For this campaign Karl dressed me as the femme version of himself with #BaptisteGiabiconi playing Karl's butler. I remember at one point in the shoot Karl didn’t think I had on the right accessories so he stopped the shoot and headed home to bring me a pair of his own iconic fingerless gloves. The look still wasn't complete so he took off his tie pin and rings for me to wear!! Amazing! I'll always treasure the times I work with Karl. 1w

cocorocha I've always said I'm anti-selfie but I posted one last night and now I'm doing it again! #CanILive?! Sometimes exceptions must be made.

cocorocha Bumped into this hot mama at #AnnaSui! Caroline @trentinireal and I have been friends for nearly a decade - she's of course one of the greatest models of our time but most importantly she is the sweetest, kindest person and a wonderful mother and wife. 2w
