Ke$ha's A Repeat Offender

Filed under: Fashion SmashionKe$ha

She sure does like that coat!

In the span of one month, Ke$ha wore her green Custo Barcelona faux fur coat 4 times!

Ke$ha first debuted the furry creation on December 10th at the 40 Principales Awards, but it didn't stop there.

She donned the coat almost back to back in London on December 14th and 16th, then finished off the year by wearing it on New Year's Eve.

We just hope it's made a stop at the dry cleaners.

Dog Fur Found In Sean John Faux Fur Jackets!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFashion SmashionDiddyWoof WoofMacy's

So wrong.

Two styles of Sean John jackets were yanked from Macy's following an investigation by the Humane Society.

According to the animal rights organization, raccoon dog fur was found in the trim even though it was advertised as faux fur.

The non-domestic dogs are indigenous to Asia and commonly used because their fur closely resembles that of raccoons.

The Humane Society's CEO Wayne Pacelle said both retailers and designers "aren’t paying close enough attention to the fur trim they are selling."

No kidding!

After the discovery, Diddy quickly issued a statement:

"I was completely unaware of the nature of this material, but as soon as we were alerted, the garments were pulled off the Macy’s floor and Web site. I have instructed our outerwear licensee to cease the production of any garments using this material immediately."

What's worse is Sean John isn't the only clothing company that's guilty of using this type of fur. Out of the 10 labels the Humane Society tested, 9 of them tested positive for raccoon dog fur.

Sad.

Kate Moss Sparkles In Black

Kate Moss was spotted last night leaving China Tang restaurant in London dressed entirely in black.

The model, who’s still rocking her bangs, wore a sparkly black jumpsuit and fur coat which we can only hope is faux fur.

And oddly enough, from certain angles, doesn’t she look like Rachel Zoe?

What do U think of Kate's look last night?

Buckingham Palace Guards May Get New Animal Friendly Hats

wenn1042391_e.jpg

On Thursday PETA and Stella McCartney met with the Ministry of Defense to propose a new faux fur hat for Palace guards.

PETA would like to see the bear fur hats replaced with Bear28, a plastic fiber technology that the animal rights group has been working on for years in order to meet the Ministry's repellency requirements.

Dan Matthews, VP of PETA, said the new hats would be a win-win situation for the MoD because they're cheaper and lighter than the current ones, not to mention "the bears will certainly be happier".

While that may be true, the Ministry isn't in any hurry to throw out the originals that have been worn since 1815. A spokeswoman for the MoD said:

"The MoD remains open to testing material that industry might offer us to asses whether a faux fur meets the requirements for a replacement bearskin hat material. So far industry has not been able to produce a suitable material to meet the Guards' requirements.

All bearskins used in the UK are sourced from Canada where bears are culled under the direction of the Canadian government to keep the bear population under control."

What do U think?

Should the Ministry of Defense replace the bearskin hats with faux fur?

Karl Says Fur Is For Rich People

wenn2766726_e.jpg

If you're not rich and own fur, you are making a big fashion faux pas in the shaded eye of Karl Lagerfeld.

Unkle K recently shared his thoughts about fur with Vice magazine, saying:

"If you cannot afford it, just forget about it. Don't use it as an investment piece to show people how rich you are. Use it like a cheap knitted thing. It's like a big stone. Lucky you that you can have a big stone, but if it troubles you financially to have the stone, don't have the stone. If you can afford it, OK. But if you think it's an investment, then forget about it."

Karl also explains his use of fake fur, adding "I don't like that people butcher animals, but I don't like them to butcher humans either, which is apparently very popular in the world."

Oh, Unkle K, you and your logic never ceases to amaze us.

William Rast Won't Use Fur

wenn5317257_e.jpg

Looks like Timberpuss has had a change of heart.

After being slammed by PETA, JT's clothing company William Rast has decided to not use any real animal fur in their latest collection.

The animal-rights group wrote Justin a letter telling him "Your animal-friendly young fans need to know where you stand. Selling fur is an endorsement of unimaginable cruelty."

The CEO of the label has since confirmed with PETA that the only fur they'll be using is faux.

Chanel, On Ice

au-1071716_e.jpg au-1071765_e.jpg au-1071724_e.jpg au-1071725_e.jpg au-1071704_e.jpg

We don't think Karl Lagerfeld understands the concept of global warming.

The Chanel designer put on quite the production at the Fall 2010 fashion show in Paris on Tuesday.

The models were dressed as if they were preparing for a nuclear winter as they strutted their stuff down the watery runway drenched in sometimes head to toe faux fur.

And this season it looks like Karl's bringing back those furry Sasquatch knee high boots that cheap go-go dancers wear while trying to make a buck.

The pièce de résistance of the entire show wasn't the fashion, but rather the background the designs walked in front of. Lagerfeld had a 265-ton 'berg imported from Sweden! Because really, what isn't a show without a giant iceberg!?

Karl may be krazy with a 'k', but he sure does know how to put on a show!

What do U think of the collection???
