Georgio Armani is one bad boy! In case you haven’t heard the news, Armani got the honor of being added to PETA’s list of fur-free designers after he publicly declared he’d no longer use fur. Then, in the cruelest move of the season, Armani released a new line that included fur coats for babies, floral-printed fur coats, fur-hemmed skirts and fur-trimmed jackets. Well as you can imagine, PETA (and all of us animal-rightsers) felt totally betrayed. I mean WTF, Armani?
And so — because nobody puts baby in the corner — PETA is asking celebrity Armani wearers like Glenn Close and Heidi Klum to boycott the designer until he makes good on his promise. While it hasn’t been released if Klum and Close will indeed help PETA with their mission, there IS one star who’s getting involved.
As Ecorazzi previously reported, Gillian Anderson is super pissed with Armani’s choice and recently rolled up her fur-free sleeves to narrate a video of undercover footage from rabbit fur farms in China and France—countries designer Giorgio Armani is known to purchase from. So watch the video and join PETA, Gillian, Ecorazzi and many others who have all pledged to go fur-free!
