D&G's Pink Race... Coca Rocha Has a Twin... Camilla Meets Vivienne...

Dolce & Gabbana are helping Italy... Coco Rocha certainly stole the spotlight... The Duchess of Cornwall cast caution to the wind...

HOUSE OF WAX: Coco Rocha certainly stole the spotlight from her two mannequins at the Rootstein Gallery cocktail event in her honor on Thursday night. The Canadian is the latest model to be immortalized by Rootstein Mannequins, which previously replicated Twiggy, Pat Cleveland and Agyness Deyn. It was the first time Rocha was showing off her brand-new, flaming-red hair courtesy of Louis Licari for a January Vogue shoot. While the look was reminiscent of early Nineties Linda Evangelista, Rocha said it reminded her of the strawberry blonde locks from her childhood. “I look like my mom’s daughter,” she said, wearing a Rootstein white tuxedo jacket, Proenza Schouler wide-leg pants, American Apparel tank and H&M beaded flower brooch. In fact, Kevin Arpino, Rootstein creative director, who designed the replicas through a collaboration between Visionaire and Elite Models had only seen Rocha’s new do the night before and had to re-dye the forms’ hair. While she described the mannequin experience as her highest accomplishment thus far, she added demurely, “It’s a little strange to see all these people here. I would rather be sitting home, watching TV.”
