Don't Tweet Mean Things About Coco Rocha, She'll Find You!

Beloved model Coco Rocha and her husband James Conran were honored last night in New York by Fashion Delivers, a charitable organization that recognizes members of the fashion community for their philanthropic endeavors. The couple notably traveled to Haiti—along with fellow model and friend Behati Prinsloo—where they brought letters from hundreds of kids all over the world to children affected by the earthquake who are in desperate need of support, love and friendship.

Coco and James had such a positive response from the project that they're planning on doing it again very soon. “All of the other models said to me, ‘Next time tell meabout it!’ So hopefully next time we will have a chunk of girls coming and creating even more awareness,” Coco said.

The couple also has another charity project in the works—they're working with an organization named Senhoa that rescues young girls from of the sex trade in Southeast Asia and provides them with a home, an education and training on how to make jewelry. The funds raised from the jewelry go toward bringing up the younger girls, and Coco is currently busy designing a line of jewels for the cause which will be available by the end of the summer.

Coco has been able to garner lots of support for her causes through her social networks—mainly Twitter and Tumblr—but she's still getting used to the added exposure. "When I first started in this business I had no voice, and now I've evolved into having one—it’s an interesting transition."

Speaking of the Twitter, Coco claims that it's rare that people tweet mean things at her, but she is forced to deal with negativity every now and then. "If someone in Nebraska thinks you’re ugly, you’re going to hear about it," James laughed.

"When people tweet something that’s a little rude they generally don’t use the “@” but little do they know we check! So it's fun if someone writes a tweet that’s a little cheeky and you write back and they apologize! They think they’re untouchable, but I can always come back to find them," Coco added.

While she finds it a little weird that people follow her every move, lookbook and ad campaign online, she's learning to find the humor in it. "It is pretty funny when someone posts a photo of ‘Coco on her moped! With wet hair!’ on Twitter or The Fashion Spot, and I'm like, 'How did they catch that?!'”


The Virgin’s Behati is a rich girl

Thursday, 11 June 2009

NAMIBIA’S supermodel, Behati Prinsloo, continues to blaze the global entertainment industry with her latest role in a video of one of the best songs of 2008.

Behati acted in the video “Rich Girls” by New York band The Virgins, a song ranked as number 68 by US prestigious entertainment magazine, Rolling Stones in its list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.
The hit song, “Rich Girls” video that Behati has posted on her profile on the social utility network, Facebook, is also available on YouTube and MySpace.
The video is spiced up with glamour, as Behati, dressed in short white lingerie, pulls erotic dance moves with the band under disco floodlights.
Behati, ranked the 26th most beautiful model in the world, is the only daughter of a Namibian Pastor Boet Prinsloo.
Prinsloo replaced the world’s highest-paid model, Brazil’s Gisele Bundchen as Face of Victoria Secrets.
According to Forbes, Bundchen is the 16th richest woman in the entertainment world, having earned US$33 million in 2007 and US$35 million in 2008.
Her fortune is estimated to be US$150 million (over N$1,5 billion).

The band has toured with Jet and opened for Sonic Youth and Patti Smith and played at the All Points West Festival in 2008.
They also performed at the 2008 SXSW festival, and toured the United Kingdom with The Pigeon Detectives in November and December 2008.
The Virgins are best known for their single “One Week of Danger”, a fairly innocuous slice of mainstream garage rock ‘n’ roll that graced the soundtrack of regrettable US teen TV series Gossip Girl, MySpaceMusic.com says.

Victoria's Secret PINK Launches Collegiate collection

Victoria's Secret rolled out its new Pink college collection chainwide this month.
Victoria's Secret rolled out its new Pink college collection chainwide this month.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Victoria's Secret is making college kids blush Pink with its new collection of lingerie, loungewear and sleepwear designed for the dorm-bound crowd.

The boudoir behemoth, famous for its sexy, romantic and provocative lines of intimate apparel, this month rolled out its more colorful and playful "Pink" fashion line chain-wide after a limited launch late last year.

Victoria's Secret is marketing the new lower-priced collection as "fresh, fun and free-spirited," catering to a younger 18-to-22-year-old clientele.

Despite the moniker, it's not all pink. The pajamas, thongs, bras, and T-shirts bear multi-colored polka dots, stripes and girlie slogans such as "I like boys."

"We wanted to capture the spirit of the young with Pink," said Anthony Hebron, spokesman for Victoria's Secret parent Limited Brands (LTD: Research, Estimates).

According to Hebron, since Pink is the first collection designed exclusively for the college-going customer, the company is devising unique marketing ploys to tout the line.

For instance, Victoria's Secret put together "Team Pink" after picking students from different college campuses around the country who would best represent the brand.

But Hebron declined to offer more details about the concept and whether or not the students would be featured in advertisements for Pink.

'"The Pink collection is an excellent idea because it caters to a different customer than the company's core, slightly older shopper. The college crowd was sort of a white space for Victoria's Secret that it needed to address," said Howard Tubin, analyst with Cathay Financial.

"Victoria's Secret strength has been its efforts to strive for constant newness," added Tubin. That factor has fueled its sales at its stores open at least a year, making it one of the star divisions of parent Limited Brands (LTD: Research, Estimates).

In June, Limited Brands, whose retail portfolio also includes Bath & Body Works, Express, Limited Stores, and the upscale Henri Bendel, posted robust same-store sales growth of 19 percent, including a 6 percent gain for Victoria's Secret.

The lingerie giant is marketing the line as "fresh, fun and free-spirited."

"Its comparable sales have been on a tear over the past two year, up 6 percent in 2002 and up 4 percent last year," Tubin said. " Sales in the first-half of this year have continued to be strong, and Pink appears to be contributing to it."

Marshal Cohen, analyst with market research firm NPD Group, agreed with Tubin's views.

"Victoria's Secret is already very strong with teen shoppers. It's usually the first place they go to buy intimate apparel," said Cohen. "If you think about it, Victoria's Secret finally recognized that if it already has captured the loyalty of the teen market, then it needed to figure out how to maintain that loyalty once this demographic had moved out of home to college. Pink is the right idea." Top of page
