Did You See What Katy Perry Was Wearing?

Since awards season is underway, I’ve been checking out all the best and worst dressed lists to see what the celebs are wearing. I thought Katy Perry looked amazing at the Critics Choice Awards last Thursday! From the hair and makeup to the gown, Katy looked to be channeling her inner Hollywood starlet. But wait, is that a… (insert gasp here) fur stole?! Her hair and makeup were gorgeous, but when I noticed the fur draped across her shoulders, my heart sank! Could it be real?


RE/Westcom/starmaxinc.com


As soon as we saw Miss Perry in this ensemble, we made sure to confirm with her management that the fur was synthetic rather than the skin of a tortured animal. Her manager responded by letting us know that he had “gotten some calls and emails from Katy’s fans” who were concerned about whether or not the fur was real, and confirmed that the fur was “a fake vintage shrug.” I couldn’t be happier! Kudos to Katy’s fans for checking in on the fabric, and even bigger kudos to Katy for keeping it fur-free and beautiful in 2009!

    It looks indeed like real fur. I can’t find a bigger picture so I’m not sure. The manager can tell whatever he wants.
    But even if it isn’t fur, the dress is made out of silk. A lot of caterpillar’s are killed for this. So if you respect animals, you also don’t wear silk.

    She would look more beautiful w/o the shrug, but she should make it more public as to what kind of fur it is. Fur, real or not, is getting dangerously en vouge.

    God, that scared me. I thought for a second that I was going to disown her as one of my favorite singers. *whew!*

    I love Katy Perry and I was also worried that it was real fur. So, I’m relieved that it’s not. *breathes a huge sigh of relief*

    I agree with everyone who says that even though its fake it still gives the message that fur is fashionable, which it is not! She would look just as beautiful without that shrug.

    Haha, I must admit, BC2 raises a good point.
    But I was a little worried when I saw that picture, I am glad that it’s fake (she’s such a lovely lady).
    Though Stray is right… fur in general is just gross, whether it’s faux or not. Don’t get me wrong, wear faux instead of real fur (obviously), but it still looks kind of, well, trashy (I’ve never been a fan of fur)

    This is what happens when people even wear fake fur – it still gives the impression that the look of fur is fashionable, and confuses the public. Just dont wear it!

    I hate the look of fake fur, but I’m really gald to see some celebrities are realising even if they like the look they can get it without torturing and slaughtering innocent animals.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
