Why is Coco Rocha Wearing a Wig?
>> Last week, Coco Rocha showed up to the Chanel-sponsored Winter Wonderland Ball with nary a hair out of place, ready to tape her newest video interview installment for Style.com. Upon closer inspection, however, there was something astray — the matting of a wig was visible at her part. A couple of weeks before, she attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards wearing a head-encompassing scarf. Granted, she was milliner nominee Albertus Swanepoel's date, and the scarf was his creation, but something still seemed a bit off, especially when paired with this cryptic (or perhaps joking) comment: "I had to come with Albertus because Vogue has rights on my hair until next month’s issue."
Rewind back to the Nov. 3 ACE Awards, and Coco had neither headcovering nor wig — so did Vogue ask Coco to do something crazy with her hair? She appears in the December 2008 issue, but as Romeo's paramour Juliet, so no dramatic haircut there. Perhaps she was referring to the January 2009 issue? Or is something else going on? Hopefully she's not ill. She is about to take off for two months on a lengthy vacation — is there an ulterior motive there?
