Helen Mirren is a Vision in Vegan Fur at Film Premiere

Published by Beth Silvia.

Helen Mirren is a beauty for the ages, a profound talent with endless class and style. It is no wonder she’s played the Queen of England twice—both performances to awards and accolades.

Taking that grace to the red carpet for the world premiere of her latest film, Collateral Beauty, the icon is not only donning a luxury fur-free jacket by NYC-based company Pelush, she included an anti-fur pin to emphasize her fashion choice.

In this day and age, it is hard to believe that anyone still wears fur taken from animals, but unfortunately, many people are unaware of the horrific cruelty involved in each fur or fur-trimmed coat, scarf, or hat. The conditions that exist on fur farms in China—where more than half of the fur products sold in the United States originate—are the worst imaginable. Workers stomp on the heads and necks of animals and rip the skin off their backs often while they are still conscious. There are no laws regulating how these animals are treated.

But we have good news! It’s so easy to choose cruelty-free styles that don’t harm a hair on anyone’s head.

Pelush NYC is here to help you find the most luxurious faux fur fashion available. This company is PETA-approved vegan, so you can be assured that when you see our logo, the materials used are not animal-derived.

Perhaps a bright blue statement jacket is your style?

Or maybe a one-if-a-kind, hand-made faux fur flower will suit you.

You’ll feel red carpet ready in anything when you join the vegan fashion revolution.

PETACatalog.com also has lots of a ton of adorable fur-free fashion gear. Declare your love for animals with these awesome items.

“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
