This morning, Kate Moss was spotted leaving the Radio One Studios in London to tape the Early Morning Breakfast Show Red Nose Day Special where she wore a grey fur jacket paired with a bright snakeskin tote and read an excerpt from 50 Shades of Grey to help raise monies — £200,000 to be exact. Later that day, she joined husband Jaime Hince at The Book of Morman Red Nose Day Benefit show at the Prince of Wales Theatre in the West End wearing a white fur atop her black outfit. Then on Monday, Kate was the guest of honour at a Kerastase haircare party where she was formally introduced in London as the face of the brand. She stole the show in a chocolate brown mink that fell just below her bum. Because I can't fully support her fur obsession, I've gathered some fabulous animal-friendly faux fur jackets that you can shop here. Take a peek and let me know if you see anything that strikes your fancy.
Kate Moss, the queen of British style (although she did get beat out this year by the Duchess), has a serious affinity for wearing faux and real fur. She pairs them with evening gowns, denim or leather and can take her furs anywhere from the High Street to a fancy night out on the town. Out of the three different furs featured on Kate below, which is your favourite?
Winter means bundling up — and that means dressing with the warmest and most stylish of layers. For the chill, there are few things that lend the luxe sophistication that fur, or equally, faux fur does. Adding texture and the same warmth factor you get from curling up at the fire, a (faux) fur piece proves its worth during the coldest months of the year. The proof is in this crew of celebrity style favorites, each one styling up her own cozy fur vest or coat with perfectly cool effects. The results are as varied as your Winter occasions, with ample examples to inspire a very chic week of wearing fur. From Olivia Palermo's evening-ready take to Nicole Richie's polished on-the-go style, step inside to see and shop all the ways to create your fur and faux fur layers right now.
December is such a big month for consumers as you have Christmas to shop for, the weather is getting so cold that you crave comfy cosy clothing, boots, hats and outerwear, and your beauty regimen changes a bit to protect your skin from the chilly air outside and the hot air inside. I had so much fun picking out four must-have fashion items along with four beauty picks to peruse this month. Take a peek at my wish list for this month and let me know which goodies you want too!
Naomi Campbell's latest ad campaign has been revealed and it's for Dennis Basso furs. The images show Naomi posing in a petrol station in a range of incredibly expensive fur coats. Dennis Basso is a controversial brand, so this ad campaign is sure to ruffle the feathers of animal rights activists. She is not one to shy from controversy, earlier this week, Naomi talked about racism within the fashion industry claiming that an editor in chief was fired for placing her on the cover. Do you like this ad campaign?
Sometimes I am shocked by the fast turn around of trends and that applies here! In 2002, when boho was in full swing, Sienna Miller was spotted in one which caused many to rush out and emulate her.
The gilet is back on the High Street now and is a great way to prepare for the transeasonal months (although be careful in the rain). One of my favourites is this faux fur (£39) version from Very.
See below for more fur gilets. Will you be wearing one this Autumn?
It was cold in London last night, but Lindsay Lohan was prepared for the Winter chill. Lindsay was spotted going to the cinema in Notting Hill as she piled on the layers of fur and leather. She accessorised her Idol leather jacket look with a funky hat and thigh high boots. What do you think of Lindsay's cold day style?
The catwalks in 2009 saw an increase in the amount of fur used in all of the fashion capitals. There were some theories for this increase, including designers being paid to use the animal fabric. Whatever the reason, The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is determined to discourage celebrities from wearing it in 2010 by naming and shaming some of the worst offenders. Kate Moss, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Elizabeth Hurley are amongst those named in a poll along with Coleen Rooney, Alex Curran, Dame Shirley Bassey and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The winner will be chosen in an online poll and announced in February by Stella McCartney. Last year, Paris Hilton and Christina Ricci were nominated and changed their love of fur. Dan Mathews, vice-president of Peta commented,
"We've written to Rihanna in the hope that the furs she's been flaunting are fake, but it seems the cat's got her tongue. The Duchess of Cornwall, not to be thwarted by the fox-hunting ban, has gone hunting in her grannie's wardrobe. Then there's the old guard like Shirley Bassey, who has a skin-crawling fashion sense. Elizabeth Hurley's wardrobe is now as dead as her film career."
How do you feel about celebrities wearing increasing amounts of fur, do you think it's their right or should they change their ways?
