The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

michelle_obama_fur_freeA few weeks ago, Ecorazzi showcased a blog entry by HSUS president Wayne Pacelle, asking Michelle Obama to refrain from wearing fur during the inauguration (and hopefully always). So how did she do?

Answer: FANTASTIC!!!

We were pleased as punch to see both Michelle Obama and Jill Biden totally fur-free.  On the other side of the ticket, Laura Bush also rocked the fur-free style, but of course Lynne Cheney just HAD TO display a grotesque fur collar on her coat. I mean are you really surprised?

The shocker of the day was that Aretha Franklin — who was photographed last year in what appeared to be an entire forest of animals — had not a lick of the cruel stuff anywhere to be seen.

Our pals over at SuperVegan.com named fur-wearing Spike Lee and wife Tonya Lewis as the worst dressed of the day. Do you agree?  Who’s fashion sense were you impressed/disgusted with at yesterday’s inauguration? Chime in and cast your vote for the best and worst dressed!

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
