Coco For Cambodia

-------

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.”

Coming Soon: “Cute Coco”

-------

Model Coco Rocha might be “stuck here in the States,” but she is certainly making good use of her time. Last night, Rocha and her husband, James Conran, took a break from finishing their documentary and fixing up their house to swing by the New York premiere of One Day. “Why wouldn’t you want to go see a girly movie with your husband?” Rocha joked. “I’m a big Anne Hathaway fan—Princess Diarieshello.”

While she waits for her green card, however, she’s still taking to the skies—legally, of course. Rocha revealed she’s on the way to Los Angeles soon to finish up her jewelry line, in collaboration with a group called Senhoa. The collection, set to debut in October, is a philanthropic endeavor, providing a job, schooling, and a home to children in Cambodia who used to be in the sex trades. “We are trying to make it really fashion-forward, but we can only work with beading and they can’t weld because they are only little girls,” Conran told Style.com.

Will it still look Oh So Coco? “It’s cute Coco,” Rocha, who personally favors “chunky, metal but still elegant” jewelry, explained.
