PETA Pushes Kate Moss to Join Newly Fur-Free Saint Laurent

PETA Pushes Kate Moss to Join Newly Fur-Free Saint Laurent

London – In celebration of the Kering group’s announcement that it is ending fur sales across all its brands, including Saint Laurent, PETA is retiring its Saint Laurent poster targeting Kate Moss. In a letter sent to the supermodel, PETA points out that Moss’ only hope of staying relevant in today’s fur-free fashion world is to ditch fur herself.

“Young people today don’t want to buy clothing made from the skins of animals who suffered in filthy, cramped cages for their entire miserable lives,” says PETA Vice President of International Programmes Mimi Bekhechi. “PETA would be happy to help Kate swear off fur by taking her old coats off her hands.”

If Moss donates her furs to PETA – which uses them in educational displays, sends them to wildlife sanctuaries to be used as bedding for orphaned animals, and gives them to refugees from war-torn countries – she’d be in good company. Anna Dello Russo, Mariah Carey, Kim Cattrall, and Anjelica Huston have all donated items to the fur amnesty programmes of PETA entities after learning that animals are electrocuted, bludgeoned, and even skinned alive for fur. Countless more public figures, including Queen Elizabeth II, now opt for faux fur instead, and hundreds of top designers and retailers now refuse to sell real fur.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. The letter is available here. For more information, please visit or follow the group on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.
