When we heard about the fur that was featured in the William Rast runway collection—backed by Justin Timberlake—at New York Fashion Week, we all said, “WTF?!” (Why the fur?!) The mother-loving chart-topper would support the beating, electrocuting, and drowning of animals for a fashion line that has previously used only faux? It just didn’t make sense—which is why we asked J.T. himself if there would be fur in the William Rast retail collection.

Well, Colin Dyne, the CEO of Justin’s fashion house, just confirmed to PETA that there will be no real fur in the collection, just some fake fur fringe on some of the shoes. His response made it pretty obvious which collection we’ll be (sexy) backing in spring. Phew.
