Model Coco Rocha Is Now Officially Mainstream

Coco+Rocha in Canadian fashion model Coco RochaCanadian model Coco Rocha, once best known for dancing her way down the Jean-Paul Gaultier catwalk, has become a paparazzi target. Last week, eager photographers snapped her shuttling through the meatpacking district, probably on her way to a job. This week, paparazzi caught her in the same neighborhood, dressed to the nines, shooting an advertisement for Tory Burch.

Why the fascination with Rocha, when so many models remain relatively anonymous these days? She hasn't made the often-terrible transition from the catwalk to Hollywood (although she did do a fashion special for E!), and she's not dating a famous musician (as far as anyone knows).

It has to be Rocha's blog - more specifically, the video of herself and her father dancing and lipsynching to a Jungle Book song that she posted several weeks ago. How can women not harbor a girl-crush on such a lady? Perhaps the new supermodel is not necessarily the figure of voluptuous perfection embodied by Cindy, Christy, Naomi, et al - it's the sort of woman you'd want to meet for Happy Hour.
