New York socialite
and cruelty-free fashion connoisseur Cornelia Guest
is taking her passion for helping animals to great lengths in a brand-new anti-fur ad
Cornelia—who is the
daughter of one of the best-dressed women of the 20th century, C.Z. Guest—used
to wear fur, but she had a change of heart when she learned more about the
heartless fur industry.
Now, Cornelia shuns animal products of all kinds—she even launched her own line

At her birthday
party on November 16, Cornelia will donate all her old furs
to PETA, and she is encouraging her guests to do the same. PETA will mark the
fur coats so that they can't be resold and will give them to the homeless
so that they can be warmer this winter.
And for those of us
who have ever wished for a guide to sophisticated vegan soirées, Cornelia has
just finished a high-style vegan-entertaining book—replete with original recipes,
decorating and party tips, and animal factoids—that will be published in May.
