Coco Rocha is a model whose commitment never seems to dip below 100 percent. She's memorably danced an Irish jig down the runway for the iconic Jean Paul Gaultier and took a dip in Christian Siriano's runway swimming pool while balancing both larger-than-life ruffles and a baby bump of seven months. Her look is distinct and stunning, and Rocha's dedication to telling stories in front of the lens means she evokes new characters with every gesture, outfit, or commanding pose. It's no surprise the industry vet has adopted this playfulness, all-in attitude into her personal closet, too.

"Usually, I know what I'm looking for and I'm not an impulse buyer," says Rocha who offered us a peek inside her fall wardrobe curated with pieces from Neiman Marcus. Her closet includes statement-making, perhaps even slightly dramatic, designs—an aesthetic she's grown to appreciate through her work with some of the most notable designers in the modern fashion history. "It has for sure had a huge impact."

Among her fall outfits is a near-full-body, logo-covered, Balmain catsuit—a look she'd bring to Paris Fashion Week, she says—as well as styles that the model and mother of three can don while wearing one of her several other (proverbial) hats. Today that includes being co-owner of Nomad Mgmt and the Coco Rocha Model Camp, where Rocha has proudly assumed the "big sister" role, she says, helping new models navigate their careers with savvy and confidence it might otherwise take years to gain.

Ahead, Rocha shares more about her acclaimed career, being an on-camera chameleon, and the joy of overdressing. Because, why do anything less?
