Just like Agyness Deyn, Twiggy and Yasmin Le Bon, Coco Rocha now has her own Rootstein mannequin, which she unveiled at a cocktail party co-hosted by designer Richard Chai.
The model is the latest in a long line of models to inspire the Rootstein mannequin company. Founded in the 1950s in London by Adel Rootstein who decided still and lifeless shop dummies needed a seriously chic make-over.
The company is now one of the world's leading manufacturers of mannequins, creating modern mannequins of some of the fashion world's most iconic faces.
And the most authentic touch to the new mannequin? It also had Coco's brand new hair colour, auburn, which Rootstein creative director Kevin Arpino had to re-dye red just the night before the mannequin's debut.
Lets hope she doesn't go back to brunette any time soon.
