You have to see Coco Rocha Irish dancing at a wedding – Yahoo7 – Yahoo7 Be
She famously made history when she Irish danced down the runway at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Scottish Highlands-inspired Autumn/Winter show in 2007 and now Irish-Canadian model Coco Rocha has showed off her incredible skills once again in an epic video.
The 27-year-old, who was discovered at an Irish dancing competition when she was 14-years-old, posted a video to her Instagram page, which shows the leggy brunette dancing a very energetic jig at her friend’s wedding in Vancouver.
“How former Irish dancers do weddings,” Coco captioned the video, alongside six dancing emojis.
Coco, who’s a mother to one-year-old daughter Ioni Conran and who practiced Irish dancing for 12 years before she was catapulted into the fashion world, has previoulsy said that it was surreal Irish dancing her way down the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier’s show, which Vogue aptly called “The Coco Moment”.
“It was exciting. When you usually dance, you dance in front of a crowd that has no clue who you are, so you can mess up, fall down, be exhausted and no one will really know in the end what you did,” she told Irish Central.
“But [at the Gaultier show,] I was really nervous because everyone knew what my name was, and if I fell over and everyone was laughing, it definitely would have hit everyone’s radar. … I don’t think I’ll ever have a peak like that in a show.
“My grandma went nuts. I mean, at shows usually, all you have to do is walk, so I don’t get nervous, but that was a bit maddening.”
Since then, Coco has gone on to grace the cover of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, W magazine and has appeared in campaigns for Versace, Balenciaga, Chanel, D&G, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin to name a few and is known as one of the most socially savvy supermodels in the business.
She’s also designed clothes, founded a modelling agency, and even written a book on her expertise, titled Study of Pose: 1,000 Poses by Coco Rocha.
The young supermodel also spends her time speaking to kids at school about body image issues and self-esteem.
