Coco is one of the only models who has spoken out against eating disorders in the modeling industry. In an email to the Associated Press, she gives an insight into the fashion world, saying: “I’ll never forget the piece of advice I got from people in the industry when they saw my new body … They said, ‘You need to lose more weight. The look this year is anorexia. We don’t want you to be anorexic but that’s what we want you to look like.’

Two years later, Rocha met fashion photographer Steven Meisel. Her career in print skyrocketed her career, when she landed on the cover of the February 2006 issue of Vogue Italia. She has walked for a Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Shiatzy Chen, Christian Lacroix, and Emanuel Ungaro, and was chosen by Marc Jacobs to open and close his Louis Vuitton shows in the past.
At the Jean Paul Gaultier‘s Scottish Highlands-inspired Fall/Winter 2007 show in February 2007, Rocha opened the show by Irish-dancing down the runway; American Vogue dubbed this the “Coco Moment” and suggested it as a sign that the fashion industry misses the “supermodels” Vogue Paris declared her one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.
