Coco Rocha Quotes:

“I feel like now is the hardest era to start your career as a model. There are definitely fewer models sharing the top tier of work today than there were 10 years ago. When I began modeling, you could be a little nobody from the middle of nowhere and be picked from obscurity to be the new face of a major fashion house. In 2016, you’re probably going to need a minimum of a million social media followers to get on anyone’s radar. That’s not an exaggeration. I would never have made it as a model if I was born 10 years later.”

“As a model I travel pretty extensively, but I’m so lucky in that I work with my husband, who manages my career, so we usually get to travel together. It’s the three of us now, the three amigos, all day, everyday. I love it, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.”
