Coco Rocha: 'My Besties Do Victorias Secret. I Just Dont Do It'

By Fawnia Soo Hoo

In addition to a revealing Nigel Barker interview, DuJour has another surprise for us: An in-depth chat with Coco Rocha and a gorgeous Nigel-shot cover spread of the supermodel (plus a couple cute snaps of the two.) We already know that Coco is a staunch advocate for models' rights (because she told us), so learn more about how she stands up for herself and more:

On how far she'll go on a photo-shoot (i.e., not far):

“In the beginning, the clients would say, ‘This is too much,’ but over time, the ones I liked kept working with me. They’d say, ‘It’s not too much. Coco can still be Coco. She still gives 100 percent when she’s on a photo shoot.’ It’s just my boobs aren’t out. And I don’t have a cigarette in my hand, and I’m not making out with a guy. And it’s all fine if you want to do that. I don’t judge. My besties do Victoria’s Secret. I just don’t do it.”

On her contract stipulations:

“My list [of what I won’t do compared with any other model’s is insane. No religious artifacts, no government artifacts. If I’m shooting with a male model, what is he exactly doing with me? What is he wearing? If I’m working with other models, what are they wearing? Are they playing something that I don’t want?”

On how her social media savvy will prolong her career:

“I was the first model to get a blog and talk about anything in modeling. Since I got to play around in this new, amazing world of social media, I get to stick around a lot a longer. Usually a model gets two to three seasons, or a year and a half, and that’s it, you’re done. For me, it will be 10 years.”
