Undone Go-Sees: Coco

While we love showcasing our beautiful local models in Undone editorials, we’re really excited to launch this new series of ‘Undone Go-Sees’ that shows off the individuality, personality, character and natural beauty the girls don’t always get to express in their work.

We’re asking each girl to tell us a little about themselves, and as for images, we’ve asked simply for what’s known in the business as ‘digis’ – off-the-cuff snaps on regular cameras of the models at their most natural, fresh-faced, untouched and ‘everyday’.

First up is Coco…

Hi I’m Coco
I’m 17
I have a Polish mother and a part-Maori father
I’m 178cm tall
I’m signed to 62 Models
My instagram is @pariscoco_

My real name’s actually Paris. Coco is my middle name, my sister’s got to pick it when I was born, and named me after a cartoon monkey on TV.

I’ve always been a bit of a lank so last year when it was suggested I visit 62 I thought I’d give it a go – it’s going pretty well so far!

I don’t know if I could pick a favourite modelling experience, but one of the most memorable was filming an episode of Germany’s Next Top Model and getting the opportunity to meet Heidi Klum.

Karlie Kloss is my favourite model, I’m in admiration of her career – within modelling she’s built an incredibly versatile portfolio and then outside the industry she’s making cookies and learning coding – it’s so cool! In terms of style I’m obsessed with Yumi Lambert, Elsa Hosk, Bambi and of course Kate Moss.

Is it selfish to have two dream modelling gigs?! a) Becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel and b) Walking ANY of the couture week shows.

If I manage to get up early enough on a Saturday I’ll go to bootcamp and then have a Little Bird Organics date with my big sister. Otherwise I’m catching up with friends or on schoolwork and sleep!

My happy place is at home, with my two older sisters, eating mum’s roast and re-watching every season of Gossip Girl.

I recently read and loved Diane Von Frustenburg’s The Woman I Wanted to Be. Incredible woman, a must-read!

My favourite thing in my wardrobe right now is a Rag & Bone leather jacket I brought on sale in LA, best bargain I’ve ever got.

I just brought a #mycalvins underwear set, so comfy!

My must-have beauty item is a pair of tweezers, to attempt to tame these brows.

My favourite instagrams to follow are @harperandharley, @thefatjewish, @cj_hendry
