Happy February.

Promotions for Zoolander 2 have been nonstop lately, with Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) gracing the covers of multiple magazines, staging walk-offs with supermodels and hanging out with fashion's elite. Zoolander's and Hansel's (Owen Wilson) latest stunt involved a trip to Rome to hang out in Valentino's flagship store windows. The pair, who first announced the sequel by making a surprise cameo on the Italian label's runway last year, posed for fans like human mannequins for a mini publicity gag Sunday evening. [THR]

Karlie Kloss has returned as the face of Diane von Furstenberg's spring campaign, which has a theme of female empowerment. The social media-focused campaign, shot by Angelo Pennetta, features the hashtag slogan "#youbeyou" as well as some of DVF's other favorite mottos, including "self made" and "work magic." [WWD]

On Saturday, Brooklyn Beckham took his first professional turn behind the camera as the photographer of Burberry's fragrance campaign for Burberry Brit. However, the hiring of a 16-year-old with little experience did not sit well with the Internet. Many took to social media to bemoan the teen's lack of education and professional training, calling Burberry "nepotistic" for its decision. The entire experience was documented on Snapchat as well as on Instagram, and the full campaign will roll out this July. [Yahoo, Instagram

Dolce & Gabbana designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana seem to making up for their rather insensitive comments about IVF treatments and gay adoption with their latest collection of handbags. The purses feature cartoon images of same-sex, interracial families using the brand's hashtag #dgfamilies. The timing just happens to coincide with the voting on a new proposal regarding whether or not same-sex civil unions will be recognized in Italy; however, the designers have declined to comment on whether the timing was coincidence or not.
