This and That...


Hello everyone, sorry its been a little while since my last post. After another work trip to London I'm back in Vancouver right now for a special event called Faces West. Faces West is is a yearly conference my mother agent Charles Stuart hosts where scouts from around the world come to find aspiring models for their individual markets. Faces West is actually where I was discovered many moons ago... so for the next few days I'll be here, speaking to a few hundred girls about my experiences modeling.

Sunday night I fly back to New York ready for the CFDA award dinner! For those of you unfamiliar, the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) is an association of America's foremost fashion designers and on Monday night they honor this years new designers. I think its great how the industry supports and nurtures its young and this year I'm allowed to bring my own date! So I'm taking my boyfriend, James Conran. I know I've mentioned him before (and some of you may have seen him on ET Canada) but I just thought I would introduce you all to him properly. James is a very sweet man I've been friends with for the last two years. We became good friends when he did the interior design and painting of my NY apartment but it wasn't until late this summer that we started dating and we've been in relationship bliss ever since!!


James lives just a few blocks from me in New York, so when I'm home I try to spend as much time as I can with him. Oh and  James has a new website up, have a look at what he does!


Well that's all for now. Please keep checking back here, I'm going to be making a very special request and announcement soon and will be needing your help!!!

XOXO
COCO

His Designs for Walls, Ceiling and Rooms are dramatic, soft, gorgerous and good simple -what a vriety!-.
Nice to know about his art works.
The decoration of our room is wonderful too.

What a lovely couple you make..
Faces West sounds really interesting, and I know how much the place where you got scouted means to you. (I was scouted at the Clothes Show last year- happy memories!)
The CDFA award dinner sounds amazing too. I think its so wonderfult to support up-and-coming designers with fresh new talent.
Looking forward to hearing about the announcement.

aww you guys are the perfect couple! so adorable. x

Faces west charges the girls $2600 so they'd better get someone like coco there talking!

How old is your boyfriend coco?

You look great in those photos. AMAZING eyes!

Anonymous said...

awww, you guys look veerry cute together. And veeery classy! two artists... must be veeeeery passionate. bow -chicka-bow-bow.

to all those who are wondering how old he is check his website - he's had a career for about 15 yrs, probably placing him in his early to mid 30s (oh my god, he's had a career for almost as long as coco has been alive! lol)

Anonymous said...

also being well-known must be very weird - it's bad enough introducing your new boy to your parents, let alone having to introduce him to the world!

nattjane. said...

yeah! i saw you with bryanna in a pic!
and gary took a pic of you beautiful ladies.
i wish i coulda gone and talked to you.

Treasured Grace said...

I just wanted to say thanks for spending the weekend with the girls/guys at Faces West!! It was amazing to hear your story and to learn more about the modeling world. One thing my daughter commented on was how down to earth you are! We decided that if we knew you in "real life" we would def be good friends:)
Thanks so much again for taking time out of your busy schedule for those up and coming girls. It meant a lot to them, and their mom's!
