When a Fur-Pusher Invites Pamela Anderson to a Show…

Written by PETA | February 12, 2007

Julien MacDonald, a fashion designer who is as notorious for his cruel use of fur as he is for a recent run-in with flour-wielding animal lovers (that’s Julien on the right, next to Paris Hilton, also in white), recently extended an invitation to our dear friend Pamela Anderson to attend his Fashion Week show in London. In keeping with her character, Pamela—who could have responded in a number of ways—chose the classy route, politely declining the offer and recommending a few useful resources for Julien to educate himself about the fur issue.

As my mother always told me, “When pelting someone with flour fails, some gentle coaxing from a beautiful blonde will often do the trick.” OK, my mother never said that. But it seems very apt in this case. Here’s Pam’s letter:

Dear Julian,

Unfortunately I won’t be in London for Fashion Week, but I truly appreciate the invitation to your show and your kind offer of creating an outfit for me. I’m hoping you can extend your kindness to include animals. If you stop using fur, I’d be thrilled to attend a show of yours in the future. Please watch my video about the fur trade on

You’re such a wonderful, talented designer, and I know you can come up with killer fashions that don’t kill anything. My friends at PETA and I would love to hear from you should you decide to go fur-free.

Best of luck at Fashion Week, and kindest regards,

    Dear Pamela You know Kelowna BC? You probably holidayed here when you were a child. Didn’t everyone? Well City Hall is going to murder Kelowna’s lovely rabbits who live on Enterprise Way. They are beautiful peaceful creatures who have just had their fluffy little babies. You have the power to stop it with your affiliation with PETA. Please help!! Sally Kelly

    Pam is the best she is so kind and polite but yet to the point. I would have told the jerk to go stick it where the sun don’t shine.

    I think she could have written a bit more sharing more information of the cruel furtrade and what it does to the poor hapless animals in her letter to him.
