The wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries is sure to be a lavish affair, so PETA sent the bride and groom an equally lavish gift: a luxurious faux fur throw donated by Donna Salyers' Fabulous-Furs.
It's no secret that Kim has a penchant for wearing fur, but we're hoping that this elegant velvet-lined throw—the same style that is used at premier resorts—will help convince the future Ms. Humphries to say "I do!" to being kind to animals. If Kim follows in her little sis Khloe's footsteps and dons Donna's luxurious faux furs, she'll join other Fabulous-Furs customers like Kate Moss, Brooklyn Decker, Ice-T and Coco, and Aretha Franklin in saving animals from being bludgeoned, anally and vaginally electrocuted, and skinned alive. Here's hoping that Kim will ditch fur for good and always choose compassion over cruelty.

Brosnan. Pierce Brosnan. He's doing some not-so-covert work to save whales. True Blood star Kristin Bauer is also lobbying for protection for whales, in addition to speaking out against animal testing, circuses, zoos, fur …
The normally furry Kate Moss is in Vogue (literally and figuratively) and looking fauxtastic for a change in a creation from Donna Salyer’s Fabulous-Furs. (Here’s hoping faux fur grows on Moss like, ahem, moss.) And the always fur-free Elisabetta Canalis will soon be showing off her fox-free foxtrot.
As she trotted around visiting animal shelters, Glee star Ashley Fink fell in love multiple times, of course. And self-confessed kitty-cuddler Michael C. Hall knows exactly how she feels. Eric McCormack is so caught up in puppy love, it even inspired his new TV role.
After gaining weight for her new movie, it was Jessica Chastain's respect for animals that ensured that she didn't need much help taking it off. And the health benefits of animal-free fare will definitely be useful for WNBA champ Kara Lawson, the newest vegetarian on the block.

Kate Moss has made many fatally ugly fashion faux pas, but today we were left pleasantly surprised after learning that Kate's taken her friend (and PETA U.K.'s 2007 Person of the Year) Stella McCartney's advice and decided to give Meat-Free Mondays a chance.
We still can't forgive the supermodel for her furry ways, but we're hoping that this animal-friendly diet sticks.

Did you hear that? It was the collective sigh of relief from raccoons, foxes, and minks—as well as human fur foes everywhere. It turns out that France's first lady and international style icon Carla Bruni-Sarkozy refuses to wear fur.
PETA Vice President Dan Mathews contacted Bruni-Sarkozy after seeing photos that showed her wearing what appeared to be real fur. She wrote back, "I do not wear, buy, or own fur …. Every designer who kindly lends me clothes for public appearances can tell you that I do not accept … fur pieces, even when they're only a small part of the outfit."
The first lady—who admitted to wearing fur during her modeling heyday—also made it clear that if the photos are recent, the fur is fake.
"By officially rejecting fur in the fashion capital of the world, this political and style idol will make people everywhere think about how old-fashioned and cruel it is," said Dan in a statement issued to the media.
With some free shoes from Stella McCartney, courtesy of PETA, on the way to Carla's doorstep, we're hoping she will swear off leather for good too.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
