How a 7-Year-Old Became an Instagram Icon Across The World

 Japan is certainly in love with that Coco – just not the one you’re thinking about. Coco, who celebrated her 7th birthday this week, has come a long way from her first Instagram post. With a massive following nearing 400k, she has become an Instagram icon across the world for simply having more swag than most adults do.

Coco, who posts under the handle @coco_pinkprincess, doesn’t dress up like your typical 6-year-old would. You won’t find any Disney characters in her wardrobe, but you will find an excess of personality. 

 

Coco, who lives in the Harajuku district of Tokyo, developed an interest in fashion as early as the age of three. Misato, Coco’s mother, says they treat their daughter’s Instagram account as an after school programme – one where she gets to express her creative side. Cocos’ family owns a vintage store called Funktique.

 

Coco’s style ranges from streetwear to normcore, and even punk. Her favourite thing about clothes is styling them. And while being famous online can be a daunting task – especially at the tender age of six – Coco seems to know how to keep calm and just do herself.
