Okay, travelers. Put on your dancing shoes because supermodel Coco Rocha has just introduced a little dance we're going to call the Airside Slide. Earlier today, Coco announced the airing of the video accompanying her work on the Spring/Summer 2013 campaign for french luxury fashion house Longchamp, and it's in this video that she and another model (Liisa Winkler) boogie down under the roof of the old Eero Saarinen-designed TWA Terminal at JFK Airport.

The premise is simple: Coco's running to catch a flight. She passes through security but keeps beeping. The TSA agent steps out to frisk her, at which point the music starts Coco spontaneously dancing, joined in the moves by Liisa.

Eero Saarinen's Iconic TWA Terminal Reopens for Supermodel Coco Rocha

During the construction of the TWA Terminal 5 at New York-JFK Airport, architect Eero Saarinen said:

TWA is beginning to look marvelous. If anything happened and they had to stop work right now and just leave it in this state, I think it would make a beautiful ruin, like the Baths of Caracalla.

Of course the lovely irony of that statement is that, though the building was completed and served its full purpose as a bustling airline terminal for decades, the end of TWA and a need for larger, more technologically advanced terminals has turned the structure into exactly what Saarinen had both hoped an feared—that of a beautiful ruin.

While redevelopment rumors come and go, there's no doubt that the TWA Terminal is an ideal place for movie shoots—Catch Me If You Can famously filmed here—as well as fashion spreads.
