Coco Rocha named Best Model in the Elle Style Awards, becomes e-buddies with Boy George

Coco Rocha, the Canadian model who recently returned from a charitable trip to Haiti with model bestie Behati Prinsloo, was in London this weekend for something decidedly more fashion-world: the Elle Style Awards, where she was bestowed with the title of best model. The award comes only four months after Marie Claire named Rocha 2010’s model of the year.

The honour was presented to her by Boy George, and it seems the two have become e-buddies since. Rocha started off by teasing the singer about having more followers than him (61,732 to 48,646 at last count), to which the karma chameleon gamely (and somewhat cryptically) replied that her “mum is lovely” and has “great eyes.”

Check out Rocha’s blog, Oh So Coco! for a video of her receiving the award.
