Lenoa Lewis Turns Down $1.7 Million Offer From Harrods In Anti-Fur Protest

leona lewisWhen it comes to sticking to your guns, it’s great to read stories of celebrities turning away from big paychecks to support a cause. Take Lenoa Lewis — she recently rejected a more than $1.7 million offer from Harrods boss Mohammed Fayed to open this year’s summer sale because the department store sells fur.

A vegetarian since she was 12, the singer was recently voted Peta’s World’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity. Obviously, she’s got a lot to represent with a title like that — but Lewis says the decision came easy. “I’m totally against animal cruelty,” she said. “I don’t have clothes, shoes or bags made from any animal products.”

New rumors also point to the 23-year-old being in talks with Sir Philip Green about creating a range of non-leather bags and shoes for Topshop. Could she be a new budding challenger to Stella McCartney?

Anyways, for those wondering who decided to take over the “ugly honors” in opening the store — they went to Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall. This is pretty surprising, since Kim has decried the use of fur before and has worked with PETA. I guess we now know how much it takes to buy her support.
