Origin stories are fascinating. This summer moviegoers have already shelled out over $350M worldwide to watch what is essentially a 143 minute backstory about an extraterrestrial raised by humans in the American Midwest. Riveting. Speaking of superpower, Coco Rocha has recounted her own beginnings and eventual transformation into a supermodel by speaking with Amy Odell of BuzzFeed Fashion for its ongoing series “How I Made It in Fashion.” Photographer Steven Meisel looms large in Coco’s story — she shot exclusively with him for six months. “Any time a new girl gets to shoot with Steven, it usually means the industry is going to start to take her seriously because he takes her seriously,” explained Coco. “I think there are two major players in this industry who can actually do that: Steven and Anna Wintour.”
