PETA Who? Celebrities Who Proudly Rock The Fur
While much of Hollywood would rather go nekkid than wear fur, these 15 celebs reserve their right to remain fully clothed in fur – and are completely unapologetic about it. We already know how PETA feels about this, so what are your thoughts on these proud fur wearers?
Kanyeezy’s distinct personal wardrobe includes everything that would make a PETA activist cringe: leather skirts, wool sweaters, and of course fur coats. His 2012 Paris Fashion Week collection boasted crocodile skin and fox fur clothing, bags and arm sweaters, as well as ‘Astrakhan’ – the fur of unborn lamb.
And PETA is no more agreeable with Kanye’s baby mama Kim, who’s also been known to wear many different types of fur.
79-year old Joan Rivers has been wearing fur longer than many of us (OK, most of us) have been alive.
Fur is fitting for a queen… a Queen Bey that is.
Rappers have never been very sympathetic to animal rights causes (except for Waka Flaka Flame – he famously (and adorably!) did a PETA ad choosing “Ink, Not Mink”). Tony Yayo, an avid chinchilla fur coat collector, once bragged in song, “I got so many minks and so many leathers the crib is surrounded by animal protesters.”
Celebrity stylist June Ambrose obviously has no problem rocking a fur stole, vest or coat from time to time. She’s often been photo’d wearing them.
Getting floured by PETA activists back in 2006 definitely hasn’t stopped Paris Hilton from wearing fur on the regular.
Based on what I’ve seen, Jenny from the block must really love minks, foxes, rabbits and chinchillas – as coats. Even her Sweetface clothing line incorporated animal furs.
Back when Amber Rose was sort-of a style icon, she rocked fur with a fierceness.
P. Diddy (or is just Diddy now?) may change his moniker often, but his taste for fur remains the same.
Considering that Lady Gaga wore a dress made of raw beef, her wearing fur is actually kind of boring in comparison…
Kelis so strongly supports wearing fur that she once called PETA “the death of fashion.”
Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige has been a fur wearer for years.
Miss Patti LaBelle has worn a number of extravagant fur coats over the years, this one included.
