She may have been out of the modelling limelight for a while, but Coco Rocha has made several runway appearances during this season’s New York Fashion Week. Not that she’s bothered.
â€œI’m not in demand for the shows any more, admitted Coco who, after months of thinking up a name for her clothing line, has finally decided on Rococo. â€œYou know what, I’ve stopped caring. If I want a hamburger, I’m going to have one. No 21-year-old should be worrying about whether she fits a sample size.
Coco, you see, is fed up of being told to lose weight. â€œI’ve been told to lose weight when I was really skinny, she tells the NY Times. â€œGirls are told they’re not skinny enough, or they hear, â€˜She’s old, she’s boring, we’ve had her, she’s not tiny any more’.
And she, like casting agent James Scully, is worried about the new crop of young models. â€œA lot of people don’t take into account the vulnerability of these young girls, she says, pointing out that these girls aren’t even â€œadults or even sort-of adults. They are children. Point closed.
That’s a sharp tongue she’s got there.
