Coco Rocha launches Fashion's Night Out in pre-NY Fashion Week show

\"\"

Coco Rocha was the first and last model on the catwalk at the largest public fashion show in New York City's history at the Lincoln Center.

This year the Lincoln Center will act as New York Fashion Week's new home and it was buzzing with glamour and new hot trends with 150 models showing preview the style to be featured in Vogue's September issue.

Rocha was joined at the show by her husband, James Conran, and mother Juanita Rocha. She told USA Today "I hate going to shows alone. I get crazy alone."

This year's Fashion Night Out will fall on Rocha's 22 birthday. "Still a baby" she says "but I'm old in this industry now."

The Irish Canadian model was discovered while dancing at an Irish dancing contest when she was just 14-years-old. She won big at 15 major dance contests before she retired. While she's hanging out back stage at the fashion show someone asks if she's going to dance on the catwalk. She says "That's the ongoing joke…So, you're going to dance today?"

Rocha's first look was by Monique Lhuillier. She had her photo taken for the Vogue look book, got the nod from Anna Wintour and went out on stage as the first model of 150. Her second look, and the last look of the night was a Louis Vuitton ball gown and diamond-crusted hells.

Celebrities and mere mortals turned out for the event which saw over 1,500 attend. Among the fashion loving stars were Lauren Hutton, Liv Tyler, Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, "Gossip Girl" stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, Serena Williams.
