Coco Rocha essentially took this season off in terms of the runway, walking exclusively for Zac Posen in New York and Giorgio Armani in Milan. But Rocha was far from out of service during fashion month. She’s been hard at work putting the final touches on her forthcoming documentary Letters to Haiti (making its New York City debut next month at Milk Studios) and crafting a line of jewelry for Senhoa, due out tomorrow on Senhoa.org. The collection ($65 to $995), which benefits victims of human trafficking in Cambodia by giving them job opportunities, is all handcrafted by a survivor of exploitation. “Once I heard the extent of the problem with human trafficking in Cambodia I knew I had to help,” Rocha told Style.com.
To show off her range of gunmetal and Swarovski necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, Rocha enlisted pal Behati Prinsloo to model alongside her in a new cinemagraph campaign by Jamie Beck, debuting exclusively here on Style.com. (For her print campaign, she also brought her friends into the picture—Iman and Caroline Trentini both appear with her in the Nigel Barker-lensed photos.)
“I first met Behati at a Louis Vuitton after-party in 2006 and we were instant friends,” Rocha says. “We feel like we went to model high school together so it’s always like a happy reunion when we get together.”
Coco Rocha is spending some quality time in New York this summer—but not necessarily by choice. “I’m actually stuck here in the States for two months. We’re in the midst of my green card application,” the Vancouver native told us last night at a rooftop party at David Yurman’s offices. It’s not quite the same as house arrest, but if you’re used to jetting around as much as this particular international fashion model, it can probably start to feel like it. Rocha and her husband, James Conran, smartly squeezed in trips to Tulum and Argentina before the travel restriction took effect. “If I want to work, I have to leave sometimes,” Rocha said. Now, she joked, “I feel like I’m not allowed to leave my couch. Everyone has to come see me.”
She’s hoping to have her wings again by September, when she plans to take a Haiti documentary she filmed with Behati Prinsloo up to Toronto. If her status hasn’t changed by then, Rocha said, “I’m supposed to plead with the government to allow me out.” Word of advice, fair Coco: Try to make your case in person.
