QUAD-COCO IN TIMES SQUARE

For this entire month you can find this billboard of me up in the bright lights of Times Square, New York. The reason why its up is, for now, a closely guarded secret... does any one have any guesses??

XOXO COCO

Update: People have been posting photos of themselves in front of the billboard (Though one looks suspiciously photoshopped haha)!! If you put yours on my official facebook page I'll continue to update this post with the pictures!


UPDATE 8/6/10: As revealed on last nights Project Runway, the billboard was part of the prize for the winner Gretchen. I was thrilled when Project Runway asked me to wear her design and be a part of the photo shoot for the show. I believe a behind-the-scenes video is coming out soon...

Fco y Alex said...

I like that! Probably it is a new TV Show for Marie Claire or you'll write for the magazine???
BTW Congrats on your new VS Pink... I'd love to see you doing Victoria's Secret Show.. I know you like to see the show since you were little girl, but what about doing it?

Marie Z. said...

Congratulations! My guess is that you'll be guest-posting at Marie Claire?

I am definitely intrigued. :)

You look great!

Kim Humes said...

I think the previous commentators are probably right, but I thought maybe Marie Claire is releasing a clothing, show or jewelry line and you're the spokesmodel? I dunno, great billboard though! You're doing Canuck gals proud!

Ploy Henderson said...

Lily said...
