In August, PETA attacked Gwyneth Paltrow for wearing a fox stole in a Tod’s ad.
Peta released a statement that said:
“Gwyneth Paltrow won’t be the apple of her daughter’s eye if she continues to flaunt fur.”
According to US Magazine, Gwyneth spoke with a Senior Person from PETA at the grand opening of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami.
Paltrow explained to the person from PETA,
“It was a daylong photo shoot on a boat near Capri, and there were all sorts of poses with all kinds of clothes – none with fur. During one set-up, a stylist came up from behind and draped a stole around my shoulder. I didn’t pay much attention to it, and when I noticed it was fur, I assumed it was fake fur, but did not ask, so it’s my fault. I was very surprised when they ended up using that one shot out of hundreds for the centerpiece of the Tod’s ads. I know it’s not a great excuse, but I hope you and your members understand.”
She went on to explain that she does not wear fur at all.
What do you think – who should be responsible for what they wear – the actress/model or the stylist? Or should Gwyneth have said up front – ABSOLUTELY NO FUR!!
