Kelly Cutrone "Normal Gets You Nowhere"

Who cares what fur-loving Anna Wintour thinks about style? Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone is the only one the fashionistas should be listening to.

The star of Bravo’s Kell on Earth and founder of the fashion PR company, People’s Revoltuion, has published a new book, Normal Gets You Nowhere, which slams the industry that brutally traps, raises and kills animals for the skin so others can make a fashion statement.

Elisabetta Canalis George Clooney 2010 Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner - Arrivals

Elisabetta Canalis says the best time to get naked is in front of the camera for animal rights.

We can’t agree, and when millions of men see the final product of the ad shoot, they’ll probably agree too.

The girlfriend of actor George Clooney is seen in a few sneak peek photos of her anti-fur advertisement for PETA, where she is posing in front of a blue background wearing nothing more than compassion.

Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson is known for giving props to local food when visiting a country, and her recent visit to Tel Aviv was no different.

The actress was welcomed by several animal rights activists carrying tombstones that read, “Thou Shall Not Kill Animals.”

“There are a lot of really great animal rights [activists] here, really good, sympathetic people and I think they’re making a lot of progress even with passing this fur bill, which is a landmark bill and it’s very important for the rest of the world,” Anderson told The Jerusalem Post. “It just seems like everyone is very passionate [in Israel]. There’s not a lot of small talk – people really talk about important things and it’s really incredible the people that I’ve met. We have great conversations.”

As a child, Flocka grew up with a lot of animals–dogs, iguanas, lizzards.

Hana Nitsche PETA

Heidi Klum‘s protege and second runner up in Germany’s Next Top Model, Hana Nitsche, grew up in the Czech Republic around many animals, so she can’t imagine wearing any of them.

“We had chickens, pigs and sheep running around–it was almost like a little farm,” Nitsche said.

Nitsche told Fox411 she was incredibly shy for the shoot, despite being a natural in front of the camera.

“I get so nervous and shy, you would not even believe it’s the same girl from the pictures.”

Alyssa Milano

With so many advancements in warm, winter-wear technology and good looking faux furs out there, why would a designer use the real thing?

It’s something that boggles the mind of vegetarian actress Alyssa Milano.

“I’m not sure I understand, how in this day & age, some designers still use real fur in their collections,” Milano wrote on her Twitter account. “I mean, really?”

As a fashion designer herself, Milano knows how to be both chic and cruel-free.

She has a line of women’s sportswear called Fandalia that features tops, hoodies, jackets and pants with logos and designs that show support for major NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and NCAA sports teams.

Urban Outfitters

It was recently discovered that Urban Outfitters was selling real fur under a faux label.

An unfortunate event, as this store could have been trusted by many animal lovers due to its popularity. It’s even on the Humane Society’s Fur-Free Retailers list.  However, Urban Outfitters has acknowledged the mistake, citing the product vendor’s factory as the source of the labelling issue and insists it remains committed to keeping its pledge not to sell fur items.

Ethical fashion blogger Joshua Katcher, who also blogs at TheDiscerningBruite.com, purchased the item from Urban Outfitters, the “S Loves C by Spring & Clifton Faux Fur Cardigan,” and put the garment through several test that can determine if something is real or fake fur.
