We know that Coco Rocha is looking forward to walking in Zac Posen's Fall 2013 show this Sunday, plus sitting front row for a slew of others. (Hey, maybe she'll run into Nigel.) The supermodel has lots of seasons under her sure-to-be designer belt, so you can bet she has some fantastic Fashion Week stories to tell. Like ones that involve a model mud fight and a chicken fascinator. Let's let Coco tell you about her Craziest Fashion Week Experiences, plus the Most Fascinating Person she's met at Fashion Week.
Coco's Craziest Fashion Week Experience:
I'd have to say say having a mud/cat fight on the runway of Jean Paul Gaultier (he likes me to do crazy things, as you can see) with a fellow model takes the cake. The audience had no clue that it was staged and I could literally hear the crowd gasp thinking we had truly went at each other. She started to pull out my hair while my face was in the mud. Meanwhile we're in fur and diamonds... [Photos here.]
Oh and another time at Moschino, Anna Dello Russo put a chicken on my head for the runway, that was pretty cray too.

The Most Fascinating Person She's Met at Fashion Week:
I have to say, Mr. Karl Lagerfeld is quite fascinating. He has such a way of living life. I mean, this is a man who has a butler whose job is to just hold his crystal goblet of Diet Coke and make sure it's always at a certain level in the cup. If that's not fabulous then I don't know what is.
