What Would You Call This Fur Boob Muff That Rihanna Is Wearing?

A titty warmer? A breast merkin? Funbag fur? A boobler? “It’s like a muffler, but for boobs!” said Ami. John DeVore volunteered “mammoth unibrow,” “Muppet tits,” and my personal favorite, “Giant Boob Tribble.” I’m not sure of its purpose, besides keeping your breasts warm to the point of sweating profusely. I hate it. That i…

Khloe Kardashian’s Coat Makes A Confusing Statement

I say confusing because, while Khloe posed for PETA a few years ago, I’m pretty sure the Kardashians in general — they are basically one hive mind, kind of like the Borg — don’t spend much time thinking about cruelty towards animals. And since this fur looks awfully real to me, my hunch was that…

Century 21 Accused Of Selling Marc Jacobs “Faux Fur” Jacket That’s Actually Real Fur

Century 21 stores, for those not lucky enough to live in suburban New Jersey or Long Island, are a magical chain of discount stores that sell designer clothes at up to 65 percent off. They’re kinda like more upscale Marshalls or TJ Maxx stores. It’s fitting that on the very first episode of “The Carrie

Style 911: What Do I Do With This Vintage Mink Stole?

“I have a vintage stole that was my grandmother’s from the 1940s or so, and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it! How do I wear something like this?” – Sonia
The way I see it, you have two options: play into the retro-ness of the stole, or try and redefine…

Kate Middleton Caught In The Middle Of Some Fur-Lined Drama

If this story was a fairytale, it would go something like this: once upon a time, there was a duchess and a fake fur coat, and two fur organizations who will never live happily ever after. The actual story goes something like this: apparently Kate Middleton recently wore a coat lined with fake fur. The…

Peta Puts Its Paws Up At Kim Kardashian And Janet Jackson

I’m not 100 percent crazy about PETA — a lot of their advertising and marketing employs sexist tactics in order to promote their pro-animal message. That said, their latest move — to single out Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson for their pro-fur lifestyles — might not be a bad move. The animal rights organization awarded…

Evening Quickies: Janet Jackson Launches Fur Line, Animal Rights Activists Pissed

Janet Jackson is launching a “luxe fur outerwear” collection with the company Blackgama, who featured her in a recent campaign. Janet’s line will feature 15 fur pieces, including coats, vests, and gloves, which will all use mink and some will use leather as well. You know what comes next: animal rights activists are pissed!

Learning to Love Him More: Your Boyfriend’s Coyote Mountain Man Hat

When your boyfriend first brought home his Coyote Mountain Man Hat, you were mortified. He was, after all, wearing a full, skinned coyote on his head. It was…hideous. And yet, you couldn’t look away. You were held rapt by its slack ears lying dormant above your boyfriend’s sparkling blue eyes. You gazed in wonder at…

Hey check it out! It’s our girl Annika, chillin’ with super fierce and flamboyant Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir backstage at the Chris Benz show during fashion week.

Do Not Want: Earmuffs The Size Of Your Head

I’m all for accessories that make a strong statement, but let’s make sure that statement isn’t, “I just stopped by the pet store and strapped a couple angry guinea pigs to my head.” And for $165? You could buy one pair of normal sized, reasonably priced ear muffs and, like, 10 happy guinea pigs. I…

Naomi Campbell Would Like To Pump Your Gas

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is no stranger to controversy. Her resume includes cell phone beat-downs and blood diamond controversies. Surely, her new ad campaign for Dennis Basso furs will start the fur flying all over again amidst the politically correct fashion set. Of course, if you are a fan of copious gasoline consumption and wearing fur,…

Elle Creative Director Joe Zee Wanders New York City In A Chanel Fur Suit

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Joe Zee. But if you watch “The City,” Elle magazine’s creative director comes across as fun but a little bit of a hard-nose. Here, though, in this hilarious video, we get to see another side of Zee, making fun of himself. For some reason, Zee…

A Pink Teddy Bear Stole Perfect For Getting Snuggly

OK, so maybe 100-degree heat isn’t the right time to bust out the (faux) fur, but this baby pink stole made from a deconstructed vintage teddy bear is too adorable to pass up posting. It was created by designer Kitty Keay, reports Susie Bubble, who reveals, “Kitty took apart a bear she got from the…

Move Over Mink: It’s All About Rat Fur

Pardon me while I throw up in my mouth a little, but Vanity Fair‘s VF Blog reports that nutria, 20-pound river-dwelling rats that tend to thrive in Louisiana, are making a splash (!) when it comes to fur-trimmed menswear items this fall. Cute! And designers are already queuing up to put a super sexy spi…

Our Worst Nightmare: The Fur Snuggie

We are officially horrified. Snuggie has decided to make a genuine fur backwards bathrobe product line, which will be endorsed by some serious star power. Not that we are PETA-crazed or anything, but no animal should ever have to die for a Snuggie! And speaking of PETA, you know they got all up on thi…

Quotable: Kanye West Addresses Fur Haters, Sort Of

“I’m briefly saddened by the negative comments, but I have to remember those people are scares, incapable or just plain idiots. We are the f**king rock stars baby. No cocaine, just life my n**gas!! No cocaine, just life!”Kanye West‘s (rather nonsensical) response to animal-rights activists and critics who denounced his decision to parade all…

Kanye And Amber Go Gaudy in Paris

Kanye West has done the impossible: made himself look like a bigger tool than we already thought he was. Mr. West and on-again girlfriend Amber Rose wore these tack-tastic fur frocks to a Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris. Never mind the fact that she looks like Chewbacca’s first cousin, he needs to meet the…

Baby Animals Would Like To Snuggle With Your Old Fur Coat

Back in October, I wrote about my mixed feelings regarding a vintage fur purchase. Sometimes it’s difficult to reconcile a love for animals and fashion, and fur is one of the most obvious conflicts of interest. While the stylish side of me loves the look of a silky, gorgeous fur layered over a casual jea…

What Is Up With Peaches Geldof’s Fur Tail?

Oh, the irony. Last night, British socialite Peaches Geldof attended a store opening, and later lamented on Twitter: “Tonight was too indie. Even for me. Never though I’d say it but I’m gonna have to – too many hipsters spoil the b[r]oth.” Too indie, you say? Then what’s that ridiculously bizarre fur tail doing o…
