Coco Rocha In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Coco Rocha In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Mega model Coco Rocha worked the runway, ahem red carpet, at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The catwalker could have been a rock star, as she struck a pose in a Fausto Puglisi black leather embossed jacket that was embellished with all sorts of bells and whistles—from studs and shine to zippers galore.

With such an intense piece, she kept the rest of her look minimal with skinny black pants, black pointy pumps and nary an accessory in sight save for a few rings.

Aside from the jacket, the other star of this style show was Coco’s new auburn pixie-punk ’do, which she coaxed into a pompadour style, ratcheting up the rocker vibe even more. A brush of grey smoky shadow completed her steely, sultry stare.

Rock on.

Hair Trend Alert: The Pixie Cut

Pixie Cut Trend

When Beyonce chopped off her hair last week, it was one of the most shocking celebrity haircuts in quite a while. In all honesty, the cut was likely a combination of removing extensions and cutting some hair, but the results were surprisingly (Sasha) Fierce, and I’m excited to see Queen Bey rock her shorter ‘do–especially since many people associate her entire persona with her gorgeous long hair.

And right on Mrs. Carter’s heels was another dramatic hair change: Model Coca Rocha cut her mid-length tresses into a edgy cut–super short around the sides with a bit more length on the top. Keeping the extra length on the top will allow for lots of variety at photoshoots (as Coco has already revealed via Instagram), and the shorter length shows off the model’s striking bone structure far more than her previous look.

By cutting off their locks, these two ladies have joined the ranks of stars who have dared to go super short.

Robin Wright has been rocking a pixie for about a year now, and she showed off her low maintenance crop once again this week on the red carpet.

And Ginnifer Goodwin, who has one of the most famous (and long-lasting) pixie cuts in Hollywood loves her short cut so much that she actually writes it into her filming contracts–she gets to keep the hair short and wear wigs for roles!

To keep your own pixie looking chic day after day, use Short Sexy Hair Quick Change Shaping Balm to create a style that is easily reactivated the next day, and to shape your hair and hold it in place, Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Sculpting Pomade is a great option. If it’s moisture and shine you want, try Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey.

So what do you think? Are all these ladies rocking the short hair, or do you prefer them with longer locks?

2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala

2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala

Here are a few more looks from the American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala, held at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday evening.

Coco Rocha: It’s not surprising to see Coco wearing a Zac Posen strapless gown on the red carpet; what is surprising is how unrecognisable she now is.

Uma Thurman: I expected something far more glamorous from Uma considering her amazing Met Gala look just last week. Her long-sleeved floor-length Fendi Fall 2013 dress may have been looked upon more favourably had she opted for a statement piece to detract from those creases.

Ashlee Simpson: I was surprised to see Ashlee Simpson at this event; however, she scrubbed up nicely wearing a backless lace high-neck Alice + Olivia gown with a feathered peplum, which she styled with a Jimmy Choo clutch, ELAHN jewelry and emerald Ocnarf Sairutsa ‘Nualah’earrings.

Alek Wek: The supermodel joins the ever-growing list of celebrities who have worn a look from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 collection. You may remember that Shu Qi wore this same charcoal-grey tuxedo dress featuring notched lapels and a pleated skirt with shimmering blue and pink panels, sans bustier, earlier this year.

Ashlee is my favourite of this group, with Lucy Liu my favourite overall at this event.

Coco Rocha in Emanuel Ungaro – 2013 Met Gala

CocoRochaEmanuelUngaro

Coco Rocha walked the red carpet at Monday’s Met Gala at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The star of ‘The Face’ worked a Emanuel Ungaro by Fausto Puglisi design from Fall 2013.

Coco’s high-neck, long-sleeved gown had a lot going on between the thigh-high slit, leopard print, and the 3D gold butterfly details across the bust and arms.

The model opted for a longer version than what went down the runway and I can’t say I’m pleased. If anyone can pull off this intense design it’s Coco, but with the added leopard from the extra length of the gown, my eyes really don’t know where to focus.

What do you think of Coco’s wildly embellished look? Too much or just enough punk?

Coco Rocha In Sass & Bide – Out In New York City

Coco Rocha Sass & Bide capelet

Coco Rocha was spotted out in New York City yesterday afternoon on her way to a meeting.

In New York City they are used to seeing Amazonian models pounding the streets, but I’m sure many would’ve taken a second look at the Canadian model on this occasion.

That’s because she wore a unique ivory Sass & Bide Spring 2013 ‘This Is Pop’ capelet vest with contrasting black piping and padded shoulders.

She may have also garnered attention because of her oversized headphones, which made her sunglasses sit crookedly on her face.

The rest of her look was model standard: black, black and more black.

Props to selecting such an interesting piece, but unless you are going hands-free like the model, this looks tricky to pull off.

Coco Rocha In Emilio Pucci – ‘The Face’ Series Premiere

Coco Rocha In Emilio Pucci - 'The Face'  Premiere

Coco Rocha attended ‘The Face’ series premiere, which was held at the Marquee New York on Monday evening.

The supermodel, who serves as one of the coaches on the show, wore an Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 gown.

Her glamorous black silk organza gown with geometric-patterned beading and sheer inserts was amped up with retro waves, smoky eyes and a hot-red lip colour.

As you would expect, Coco is working the hell out of this look.

Spiked statement rings provided the finishing touches.

Coco Rocha In Mugler – 2013 Winter TCA Tour

Coco Rocha In Mugler - 2013 Winter TCA Tour

Coco Rocha is also one of the model coaches on the upcoming reality tv show ‘The Face’.

She joined the panel discussion during the Oxygen portion of the 2013 Winter TCA Tour on day 4 at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California yesterday afternoon alongside Karolina Kurkova.

Coco wore a futuristic black-and-white Mugler Fall 2012 ensemble with a high neckline, structured shoulders and python pants.

Despite her long lean legs, the model added platform heels to super-size her look.

As fierce as Coco looks, I can’t help but feel that this ensemble would be a tad uncomfortable for a discussion panel.
