TOP MODEL SECRETS

CRISTA COBER

This Canadian power woman smells like roses, is a great storyteller and swears by coconut oil. Meet Crista Cober.

When Olivier Rousteing picks you to star in the Balmain Spring campaign alongside Adriana Lima, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Isabeli Fontana and Joan Smalls, you know you’ve officially achieved fashion’s #squadgoals.

With her striking features, Crista Cober fits right in with Rousteing’s army of power women. It’s not only her face that calls for attention – Cober’s fierce, athletic built body makes her the perfect amazon for everything from high fashion covers (her August cover for Numéro, featuring Crista and a giant palm leaf and not so much more, is one of our all-time favourites) to H&M Sport campaigns. 

We asked Cober – who recently announced on Instagram that a baby Cober is on the way – to fill out our Top Model Secrets questionnaire.
