For Furs Sake: You can keep your fur coats

Leave the real fur where it belongs- on the backs of beautiful creatures not adorning some brain dead celeb

A few days ago the papers reported that the Hollywood actress Lyndsay Lohan has lost a 75k fur cost at a night out at a club. Lilo had apparently been quite frantic when she realised she had misplaced her jacket and incredibly relieved  when it was returned to her. The subtext of  these articles seemed to be the following:
  • Gosh isn't Lyndsay Lohan a ditz
  • Imagine being so wealthy you misplace a 75k coat
  • Only in LA is a two Piece mink cost considered fashionable.
Missing from the coverage was any real comment on the fact that she was wearing real fur.
There still seems to be a worrying trend for certain celebrities to wear fur 

(yes BeyoncĂ© I am looking at you) Despite not living in the North Pole and having access to as much faux fur  money can buy they still make the ignorant cruel choice to wear the pelts of beautiful creatures. Tragic animals who are bred for nothing more than to be skinned.
Even some celebrities like Lana Del Ray and Kate Moss who you would quite honestly expect to  have better taste have been photographed wearing real fur. The mind boggles.
Always fake it ladies

No one loves the look of a fur coat more than me. I own more faux fur than you can shake a stick at and love recreating my own fat version of old Hollywood glamour as I pull up the collar of my luxurious fluffy coats,but wearing real fur is truly repugnant. 
It's the ugliest and cruelest of vanities. I don't think I need to elaborate on how awful the process of removing the fur off an animals back without marking it is. I'm not a PETA advert and I don't think I need to use shock tactics but needless to say it's just awful and any animal lover would be deeply disturbed.
Keep your fur fake and your conscience clear

Lilo I would boycott your movies but I don't think you make them anymore and BeyoncĂ©- love your music girl but stop being a tool and parading around in the skins of beautiful creatures  and on another note have a word with your fella. Rapping about Tina turner being raped and beaten doesn't make you edgy it make you compliant in deep misogyny)
Lana and Kate I will always adore your style  but lose the fur coats. They are like a huge bloody paw print on your forehead, like a bindi for the terminally stupid.

No need to go naked-just make your muffs faux

I wouldn't rather go naked than wear fur, it's too cold for that and totally unnecessary. Indulge your love of all things animal but fake it baby. Leave those minks, foxes and racoons intact and frolicking Disney style not featuring in their own fluffy version of silence of the lambs. That's just dark and terribly cruel and surely fashion should be fun.

  1. Well said! In this day and age there is no need for fur to be worn for fashion. It is stomach churning that these celebs walk around draped in a material obtained through the torture of animals.

  2. YES YES YES! Fur is always best on the animals and you rock the faux fur, especially the polar bear kind in the top photo. Thank you for saying that about Beyonce and Jay Z. I know they have almost God-like status and if you say you don't like them you may as well say you enjoy suffocating kittens, but that reference to Tina Turner is reprehensible and unforgivable. For the record I think Bey is super talented, but she just put feminism into a blender.

    Thanks for always telling it how it is. x x

  3. So totally agree about the fur, I now no longer buy anything fur or leather and also only buy animal friendly makeup as well now :)

  4. I can't believe those celebs, also real fur is so 1970's...I would never wear it I found it so taky!

  5. I would never buy or wear fur, I don't understand how anyone can. Well anyone except Inuit people who maybe kill an animal for meat and use the fur for warmth in their harsh environment. But as you say, for us, with central heating, and fake fur and fleece widely available, there is no excuse. My mum inherited my gran's old mink coat, and we donated it to a charity who use it in an animal rescue centre. Nothing will bring back the many animals who went into making it, but they are keeping baby animal orphans comfy and snug.
