Coco Rocha Graces Fashion World with a Dictionary of Poses

The latest book out of the fashion world is a dictionary — but think gorgeous shapes and poses to communicate instead of endless words. In A Study of Pose, Coco Rocha demonstrates the art of modeling in a dictionary of 1,000 poses, all shot by Steven Sebring.

Rocha intended the volume to be a timeless reference to the study of pose, so styled the shoot herself, and wears only a simple leotard. “If we styled it, it would become dated. It’s a study of pose and the form of the body, not a study of fashion,” she told W magazine.
