Coco Rocha thinks about what she's going to have for dinner when she's on the runway.

The 25-year-old model has walked for some of the biggest names in the industry, including Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs.

She makes it look completely effortless, which could be thanks to her relaxed attitude on the catwalk.

"For me it's like, 'What am I eating tonight? Who am I hanging out with?'" she laughed to fabsugar.com.

"I used to do that in dance too when I used to have competitions. I should be thinking: Cross your legs, straighter, point! And I'm thinking: 'I wanna hang out with so and so...'"

Coco's first runway experience was during 2006's Spring/Summer shows in New York City.

She might be laidback about the whole thing now, but back then it was a different story.

"That was weird! It was in the tent, it was all white, I was in white, I thought it was going to be fine, and then I just start stopping, randomly, in the middle of the runway!" she recalled.

"I got so nervous and I was like leaning; it was a very Zoolander moment I was like, 'It's just walking, Coco!'"

During the Fall/Winter 14 shows in New York, Coco went along to support her designer friend Max Azria and his collection for Hervé Léger.

She's very grateful to the fashion star and enjoyed the opportunity to be there for him.

"Early on Max and the whole team have always been there for me, especially early on as a model," she said.

"You're no name, no brand and they continued to work with me. I like that I can come full circle and support them too."
