Happy Birthday, Coco Rocha! Did you know that the internationally acclaimed supermodel turned 26 on Wednesday? Yep, she's only 26 — and her youth-to-level-of-success ratio is daunting to say the least.
Anyway, there are a lot of ways we could be celebrating the ever-adventurous (not to mention fashionable) Ms. Rocha's name day: perhaps a retrospective of her best runway moments, a cheekbone-accentuating makeup tutorial — or even a gallery documenting her long-standing friendship with designer/Project Runway judge Zac Posen.
But, seeing as she has just shy of 800,000 followers on Instagram, I figured a piece featuring her IG account would do nicely — so I set out to wade through a few years of photos to create some semblance of a top ten list. I have to tell you, it was tough: Pretty much every single photo (of which there are thousands) was fabulous, so I had to put some parameters on my list. I decided to weed out any pictures that were regrammed from photo spreads and magazine covers (though sometimes, it was honestly hard to tell which photos were from magazines and which weren't), and for the most part, I steered clear of fashion shows. With that in mind, here's her top 10!
Don't you love her take on #WokeUpLikeThis? To quote Rocha, "#ididnotwakeuplikethis #inevertakeselfies #thatwasalie #soismyhair #extensions #hashtag #hashtagmageddon."
Her selfie game is off the charts (and I want those sunglasses really, really badly).
The fact that she manages to look more like a waxy figure than that horror of a Queen Elizabeth II facsimile is a testament to her considerable modeling skills.
This was tagged as "#WhoWoreItBetter" but I think this is a no-win situation.
We should all do Gangnam Style in gilded Fausto Puglisi runway numbers!
5 and 4.
She has some of the best #TBTs around (and she's been rocking the bridal thing for a long time now).
She brings posing with pets to the next level.
She might just have the prettiest backyard ever.
Wow, this honestly belongs in a magazine somewhere.
Happy Birthday, Coco!
