Also included with Anderson’s gift was a letter that asked Kardashian to reconsider wearing fur. The letter, which is dated Nov. 28, appealed to Kardashian’s status in the entertainment and fashion worlds as a trendsetter.
“As we all ponder New Year’s resolutions, won’t you consider making a meaningful one to stop wearing fur?” Anderson wrote. “You’d be setting a trendy, compassionate example.”
Anderson cited fashion designers and fashion magazines that have decreed fur and vowed to stop working with it, and she added how Kardashian’s fans would admire both her and her brand if she made the change.
It’s not the first time Anderson has sent a faux-fur coat and a message urging the recipient to stop wearing fur. She sent a similar letter to First Lady Melania Trump in February, and a few months later the White House said that Trump had stopped wearing fur.

Vogue Paris recently featured Gisele Bündchen on the cover of an issue dedicated to cruelty-free fashion, about which she said, “So happy that Vogue Paris dedicated this issue to animal protection, sending a strong message that wearing real fur is never an option!!”
Also this fall, Gucci announced that it would stop using real fur because it’s “out-dated”—
joining Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, BCBG Max Azria, Calvin Klein, and other stylish brands
that have shed fur.
As Elaine Welteroth, the editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, recently stated, “Ethical fashion is the
future of fashion. Gucci’s decision to ban fur is a smart step in the right direction—for the
environment, for animal rights, and for its massive base of young brand fans who will soon
represent the largest consumer base in history.”
Kim, I know your young fans would admire you and your brand even more if you dropped fur.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!
