Last night Coco Rocha celebrated her entry into the unofficial model hall of fame with none other than her very own Rootstein mannequin. The company, which also recently immortalized Agyness Deyn, has been making fashion's most real-life mannequins sine the early 1960's.

If we published all of the gift guides that came through our door we'd be up to our ears in presents--not that that would be such a bad thing.

Better snatch up those structured coats and dark colors--this Fall, who knows, there may not be much of that to go around.
