Illustrated Event Report: The PETA Fashion Week Party At Stella McCartney

Illustrated Event Report: The PETA Fashion Week Party At Stella McCartney

Last night I bundled up and faced the dastardly winds currently attempting to blow NYC into the Atlantic to attend PETA’s Fashion Week party at the Stella McCartney store. It was over-the-top and ridiculous, of course! The first thing I overheard was an older man saying to his young, pretty companion: “Oh my god, you would loooooove Fashion Week. Everyone is so stylish!” Which made me realize the pair had no idea they were actually at Fashion Week, they just live full-time in a beautiful little bubble filled with thigh-high shoes and men in tuxedos thrusting platters of champagne into their faces. Glamour!

Tim Gunn was there, which made our night, even though he was ushered off backstage before we had a chance to talk* (*profess our love) to him. Also milling about were Lo Bosworth and Taraji Henson who stood next to her controversial naked PETA ad.

In it, bikini-clad women are oiled up and fellating vegetables. Just normal PETA stuff, you know. More »

Video: Lea Michelle Speaks Out Against NYC Horse Cruelty

Today in absurd celeb causes, Lea Michelle tackles the horse-drawn carriages of New York City — you know, the maybe 15 tourist-transporting carts you see hovering around the perimeter of Central Park. Lea teamed up with PETA to draw attention to this alleged carriage cruelty, a cause Alec Baldwin apparently supports as well. Choice quote: “They’re animals, they’re not cars.” More »
