Fur-Free First Ladies: Michelle Obama Echoes Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s PETA Pledge
Yesterday, we broke the news that France’s first lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, had written to PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews to assure him that although she wore fur back in her modeling days, she now refuses to wear even the smallest bits of fur.
Now, America’s first lady, the fabulously fashionable Michelle Obama, has also declared via her press secretary that she, too, is fur-free. Here’s the official statement: “Mrs. Obama does not wear fur.”
Talk about some high-class first ladies!
