Beckham In Fur Misunderstanding

VICTORIA BECKHAM almost became a target for the People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) after they mistook her false fur gillet for a real animal pelt.

The former SPICE GIRL had a number of faux fur outfits recreated from designs she had seen at a Roberto Cavalli fashion show earlier this year (05), and after realising their mistake, PETA are now praising the singer for her leading example.

YVONNE TAYLOR from PETA says, "On fur farms, animals are electrocuted or have their necks snapped for their pelts.

"Victoria is proof that you can get this season's killer looks without having to kill animals.

"Victoria has let PETA know that not only is she supportive of its high-profile anti-fur campaigns, she has pledged never to work with fur in any of her own fashion collections."

Cudos to Victoria Beckham for choosing to not wear or use fur in her fashion line! Everyone knows that 'Smart women fake it.' Wearing real animal skins in today's society is completely ridiculous, thank God there are some intelligent celebrities out there who 'get it' and choose fake furs over real ones.Nadine SaundersVancouver, Canada
