Gwyneth Paltrow Defends Herself for Wearing Fur in Those Tod’s Ads

By

Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly trying to smooth things over with PETA after she was photographed in fur for her Tod's ad. "It was a daylong photo shoot on a boat near Capri, and there were all sorts of poses with all kinds of clothes — none with fur," she reportedly told PETA vice-president Dan Mathews at a party. "During one set-up, a stylist came up from behind and draped a stole around my shoulder. I didn't pay much attention to it, and when I noticed it was fur, I assumed it was fake fur, but did not ask, so it's my fault. I know it's not a great excuse, but I hope you and your members understand." Sigh. [British Vogue]
