Coco started the trend to post food and pajama looks on Instagram.She also created an app book called “Study of Pose”. It shows the entire pose in 360 degrees. “Why aren’t we watching the tech awards just as we are watching the Oscars? Why can’t Elon Musk be as cool as Alexander Wang, or Bill Gates as cool as Karl Lagerfeld?” Coco Rocha said at the event. Google brand marketing manager Kate Parker and fashion technologist Madison Maxey also joined the panel.

Not posing and winking at cameras, but coding. Kloss’s official statement reads: “I think it's crucial that young women learn to code as early as possible to ensure that we have a voice and a stake in what the world looks like." Let’s do our best to turn the next generation of tech from bro-culture to gender-equal.
