Oh no, Coco!
OK, we're not that distraught, we just really wanted to say that. But Coco Rocha, one of our favorite models (and certainly one of the friendliest we've ever met) will be skipping this New York Fashion Week, which is certainly cause for sadness.
According to her Tumblr and Twitter (girl is a social media fiend), Coco's commitment to "The Face," a new modeling TV show coming to Oxygen, will keep her away. Today she simply stated, "This September would have been my 17th season of runway, but I’m sitting it out to film The Face. :)"
We presume that means she'll be sitting out London, Milan and Paris as well. We haz the sadz.
At least we know why we won't see Coco's smiling (or scowling) face on the runways this year, as opposed to Karlie Kloss. The 20-year-old model, who considers Rocha her mentor, went M.I.A. last New York Fashion Week, leaving the rumor mill buzzing. Luckily she showed up for Paris, making a surprise appearance on Anthony Vaccarello's runway to kick off the Week.
Unfortunately we may not get Coco back so quickly. "The Face," which also includes Nigel Barker, Karolina Kurkova and Naomi Campbell, won't air on Oxygen until 2013.
In the meantime, we'll be following the top model via our various social media addictions. Peep Coco's Tumblr, oh-so-coco.tumblr.com, here.
