She may have graced countless covers, editorials, and major campaigns, but Coco Rocha says that doesn't mean she's a supermodel.
"I cannot ever call myself a supermodel. That was an era in time — when Naomi worked — and those girls owned the industry," Rocha explained in a recent interview with Time. "Nowadays, you do one cover and if it gets a lot of hype, you're considered a supermodel."
But even if she doesn't consider herself in the same league as Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen, and Naomi Campbell — her cojudge in the upcoming modeling-contest TV show The Face — Rocha has definitely succeeded in building her brand the modern way. "For any model who starts today, they have to go with the flow of here and now — for me, it was embracing social media." And boy, has she. The "nonsupermodel" currently has over 462,000 Twitter followers — and counting.
For that reason — and despite her protests — we can't help but feel that Rocha is definitely a supermodel for this day and age. A look at all the gorgeous images that prove it, in the slideshow.
