Born on September 10, 1988 in Canada, Coco was discovered in 2002 when agent Charles Stuart approached her at an Irish dance competition and asked her if she would consider modelling for him. She has gone on to appear on the cover of Allure Korea, ELLE Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Quebec & UK, Harper's Bazaar Russia & Singapore, Numéro Tokyo & Vogue Korea, Mexico & Spain. She has also appeared in editorials for American Vogue, French Revue des Modes, Numéro Korea, V & W & in ads for Chanel, Calvin Klein & Yves Saint Laurent.

The thing I love the most about Coco is the way she is able to bring her personality into all her pictures. However, it’s not only the fact that she brings in her personality, it’s the fact that she can do that and still give you high fashion. No matter how crazy or silly the expression on her face is there is always a fashion twist to it. She also has an amazing jawline and cheekbones.

Coco has been around for a while, but it was a recent photo shoot that reminded me just what a great model she is. There was so much controversy surrounding the Elle Brasil cover that people may have overlooked how great the editorial inside was. Coco looked beautiful in the pictures and it reminded me how versatile she is as a model not only can she do the fun and edgy photo shoots she can also do the glamorous and simply beautiful shoots as well.
