Supermodel Doutzen Kroes models swimwear in Sri Lanka during time off from saving the world’s elephants
Anne of Carversville blogger reports that “supermodel, superwoman activist and humanitarian, mom, sexy wife and GREAT personality jets into the beaches of Southern Province, Sri Lanka”.
The Mail UK adds that Kroes, best known for her work with lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret “shows off her toned figure as she models new jungle-inspired swimwear range”.
But her campaign to save the planet’s pachyderms might be a more lasting legacy, as Vogue magazine reports that she is “calling on fashion to save the elephant population”.
Says Kroes: “I don’t want my kids to grow up in a world without elephants in the wild. This could become a reality if we don’t do something.”
The supermodel and former Victoria’s Secret Angel has been hard at work over the past year and a half, in partnership with the Elephant Crisis Fund, on the KnotOnMyPlanet campaign.
This global bid to raise awareness about the plight of wild elephants, the ads feature Kroes and her fellow supermodels posing with their clothing tied in knots.
The visual symbol remembering something “serves to connect viewers to the adage ‘an elephant never forgets’ with a clear reminder to keep the majestic animals on our mind”.
Says Kroes: “What we want to do is give the world a message that we shouldn’t forget animals and that we don’t want [poaching] happening on our planet.”
