We’re happy to share that yet another person with clout has stopped wearing fur- Melania Trump.

Back in February, Pamela Anderson, an honorary director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, mailed the first lady a present thanking her for wearing the blue Ralph Lauren ensemble she wore for Inauguration Day (the label stopped using fur in 2007). The gift, a faux lamb fur coat with a vegan belt was made by Russian faux fur company, Only Me. With it, Anderson sent a letter which read, in part, “I am so happy that you chose not to wear fur! As first lady, you will help set style trends, and by remaining compassionate with your choices, you will warm the hearts of many.”

From the article:
“‘Melania first attended a PETA fashion show years ago that featured one of her favorite designers, Marc Bouwer, a longtime PETA supporter who uses no fur, leather or exotic skins in his collections. More recently, Pamela Anderson sent elegant Melania a stylish faux fur, as well as a video showing how animals are cruelly killed in the wild and on fur farms, so it’s no surprise that she is now fur-free, following in the footsteps of so many fashion icons and first ladies,’ Dan Mathews, PETA senior vice president, said in a statement.”
