It's all told in the face - Coco Rocha

You face will tell the story.  So take a moment to watch Coco Rocha showing just how versatile she is in her facial expressions.

Wink TIP:  When you are practicing your facial expressions in the mirror remember to "feel" what they feel like.  You wont necessarily have a mirror to look in when you shoot so how will you know whether you are creating the same exression?  Feel it so you can re-create it on set.
