Celebrities and Fur: A Powerhouse Combination

By FurInsider on December 7, 2012 in Billboard, Celebs in Fur, Featured Articles, Trend Watch
Whether it’s rock stars or reality stars, one common fashion thread that ties Hollywood’s brightest stars, past and present, together is the fact that they LOVE their fur! For the celebrities of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s, fur defined them as not only glamorous, but also as refined symbols of stature, wealth and high-fashion…the same applies to today’s divas.

For today’s female and male celebs, fur has a much more casual and fluid role as it is often chosen to reflect innate personality and swagger, as opposed to trying to create a fabricated alter ego. Ingrained in our pop culture as a wardrobe staple, we see fur being worn by a wide range of high-profile fashion lovers for every occasion imaginable, and throughout all seasons.

Surely this age-old love affair with fur is here to stay. As more and more designers experiment with luxurious fur in their collections, and more and more top fashion and lifestyle magazine worldwide feature it in-book , the obsession with this textile will only continue to grow bigger and bigger! This utter saturation and penetration of fur fashion into mainstream consciousness has created a new and younger crop of fur wearers, which ultimately secures the wonderfully vibrant future of fur…especially among Hollywood celebs.
