Coco Rocha has signed to IMG Models.

The 26-year-old supermodel - who has been represented by IMG's parent company WME in their TV, commercials, books and speaking engagements departments since 2013 - has now been signed by the modeling agency for worldwide representation.

Coco - who first appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia in March 2006 before being snapped up by a number of other magazines including Harper's Bazaar, Elle and V - was previously represented by Wilhelmina Models.

In a statement on their website IMG Models said of their latest signing: "Through her modelling career, Rocha has walked for top designers including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Anna Sui, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, and Balenciaga; and worked with leading photographers including Steven Meisel, Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, Arthur Elgort, Nathaniel Goldberg, Mikael Jansson, Steven Klein, Annie Leibowitz, Peter Lindbergh, Nick Night, Rankin, Ellen Von Unwerth and Solve Sundsbo.

"Rocha was named one of the Top 30 Models of the Decade by Vogue Paris, as well as Model of the Year at both Marie Claire's Prix d'Excellence Beauty Awards and by the Elle Style Awards in London."

In addition to her commercial work for luxury brands such as Christian Dior, Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier, Rocha - who welcomed her first child, daughter Ioni with husband James Conran in March - has also featured in a variety of television programmes including 'The Face', on which she mentored up-and-coming models.

The brunette beauty is considered to be one of the most digitally savvy models of the moment with a social media following of over 16 million.

The news comes after it was announced that 'Hard Out Here' singer Lily Allen has also been signed to the model management firm.
