Los Angeles – PETA—whose members have been arrested protesting fur in Vogue‘s New York and Paris offices—is now singing the praises of the magazine’s historic issue dedicated to animal-friendly fashion, which includes a strong statement against fur.
In thanks, PETA is sending bouquets of flowers to Vogue Paris editor Emmanuelle Alt and model Gisele Bündchen, who is draped in faux fur on the cover. Sharing a photo of the new issue—which also features a chat with PETA pal Stella McCartney about vegan fashion—on Instagram, Gisele wrote, “So happy that @vogueparis dedicated this issue to animal protection, sending a strong message that wearing real fur is never an option!! All great designers now do beautiful #fakefur.”
The Brazilian beauty used to wear fur, but she had a change of heart after learning how animals suffer in the fur industry—just like Eva Mendes, who famously went on to star in an anti-fur PETA ad. (Another PETA poster woman, Christy Turlington, has already “liked” Gisele’s tweet about the pro-animal Vogue Paris issue, which hits newsstands July 21.)
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear.”
