Leading model Doutzen Kroes graces the Issue #19 cover of Bloomberg Pursuits. Photographed by Ruven Afanador, the top model wears a lace Dolce & Gabbana dress with dangling earrings from Graff and a Tiffany & Co. bracelet. The Dutch model is profiled for creating the Knot On My Planet. The campaign aims to save elephants from extinction. In the accompanying spread, Doutzen lounges in polished looks from The Row, Celine, Balmain and more styled by Brian Coats.

In her interview, Doutzen talks about the inspiration behind the campaign which had support from Tiffany & Co., Karlie Kloss, Naomi Campbell and more. “Elephants have always been in our pictures,” Kroes says about fashion. “They’ve stood there, silent, in the background. It was time for the fashion industry to give back.”

TOMMY HILFIGER IS MOVING HIS FASHION SHOW TO L.A. THIS SEASON

The very in-flux institution that is New York Fashion Week continues to show signs of evolution, this time at the hands of one of America’s most iconic designers. Following on the heels of a much-hyped "Tommy Now" show this fall in collaboration with Gigi Hadid, Tommy Hilfiger announced that he'll be staging his spring 2017 show in L.A. this February, rather than New York.

"The casual, cool, chic look that is leading the fashion world this season was born and bred in L.A., and I knew this show would feel at home on Venice Beach," Hilfiger stated in a press release.

Taking place at 5 p.m. ET on February 8, Spring 2017 will mark the second see-now, buy-now show from the brand, as well as the second Tommy x Gigi collaboration. All looks will be immediately shoppable as soon as the show finishes via the brand's own sales channels, retail partners and social media.

Last season, Hilfiger's Hadid-fronted collection was presented in an over-the-top extravaganza at Pier 17 in New York that clearly prioritized fashion as spectacle for consumers rather than as a consideration for the fashion media. And as a way to reach new customers, his plan seemed to work. The designs were easily digestible to fashion fans, and publicity from the "Tommy Pier" carnival-themed show brought a 900 percent increase of traffic to tommy.com, 70 percent of whom were new to the site. Even Taylor Swift attended, and she almost never goes to fashion shows.

Building on the success he experienced in September, Hilfiger is likely to create just as much of a spectacle in L.A. this time around. The Venice Beach show is intended to reflect a "California beach lifestyle" exemplified by Hadid. "The Spring '17 collections were designed with a clear West Coast spirit, and Gigi and I have loved fusing elements of her California lifestyle and a music festival atmosphere into the second TommyXGigi collection," Hilfiger said.

Even though it will take place on the other side of the country from NYFW beginning the next day, more than 3,000 buyers, press and influencers are expected to attend the oceanside event. If last season was any indication, it'll be fashion as entertainment once again — and it will attract plenty of attention for that.

Also playing into the "democratization of fashion" angle, consumers are invited to participate in the design process by voting for their favorite TommyXGigi looks on social media in the weeks leading up to the show.

GIGI HADID GAINED THE MOST INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS OF ANY FASHION PERSON

Few things felt more important to the modeling world this year than social media — especially Instagram. Trying to count how many coverlines and think pieces mentioned the rise of the social supermodel, Instagirl or fashion influencer this year would probably take the entire remainder of 2016. We get it, models are taking control of their own images with these platforms and getting jobs based on their reach. But, here's some actual new information: which of these social supermodels grew their following the most over the year.

For the most part, the list, compiled by Instagram using valuable resources, is pretty unsurprising and reflects the career trajectories and ubiquity of the models and personalities in it — see: Gigi Hadid taking the lead with a whopping 16,033,757 NEW followers acquired this year — but there are a few surprises. For instance, Gisele still made the list, despite having a relatively low-key year, and Kendall Jenner's absence from it altogether — she must have really taken a hit from that week-long Instagram hiatus. It's also interesting to note that nearly all of them, with the exception of designer Victoria Beckham and, debatably, actress Cara Delevingne, are models, as Instagram took into account all fashion personalities.

EMMA WATSON AND THIS DIOR GOWN ARE A NATURAL PAIRING

While other celebrities and fashion people were busy getting a bit kooky for Halloween, Emma Watson spent Monday evening looking damn near perfect in a gown by Dior. Specifically, she wore a black Dior "Le Diable" embroidered tulle long dress from the spring 2017 collection, which she accessorized with a sparkly clutch from the French house. (It's worth noting that this look does have a giant bat in the center of it, so Watson still managed to achieve a sophisticated kind of festiveness for Halloween.)

Watson updated the look slightly from how it appeared on the runway, adding a mesh-paneled yoke rather than opting to go bare-chested. However, she did style her gown with the same black choker the model wore during the show — and she nailed it.

This pairing — outspoken feminist Watson with a look from Maria Grazia Chiuri's triumph-of-feminism, millennial-oriented debut collection for Dior (remember the "We Should All Be Feminists" shirt?) — makes plenty of sense. Watson is far from the first celebrity to be spotted wearing fresh-from-the-runway spring 2017 items on the red carpet. In fact, she's not even the first one to be spotted wearing one of Dior's spring 2017 gowns: Bella Hadid did so last week. But this, of course, is no competition. Feminism means all women can get a piece of the Dior pie, right? (Oh, oops. Is that not how the old saying goes?)
