Why Is Every Celebrity In China Wearing Large Furs In 60-Degree Weather? Maybe For A Good Cause!

A little preface on me and China. The summer the government sent army tanks to mow down a bunch of highly intimidating unarmed college student protesters, I moved there, into a building right next door to a cat restaurant. So like, sometimes news happens in China that other people might classify as "huh" or "disturbing," and the disturbingness factor just flies over my head. Anyway! So Fendi just held a huge fashion show on the Great Wall of China, and the pics that came back were unplace-ably disturbing. What was it? Let's see.. there was Kate Bosworth in some weird furry monstrosity, and Tinsley Mortimer in some other weird furry thing, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld in some... okay, so they're all in furs! Where humans have no rights animals aren't much better off!! But then, clicking through the feed of images from the same 24-hour period in Beijing, I noticed a bunch of shots of generalized Beijinger commonfolk, biking around wearing nothing but light cotton shirts. The fashion people are wearing fur and it's sixty degrees out! But then...

I looked closely at the captions on the commonfolk pictures, which were taken to illustrate another story on the coming winter times, and specifically how winter is synonymous with Beijing pollution. And then a little lightbulb went off! Maybe the celebrities were just trying to make a statement about the environment! Like: "We'd rather go naked than burn coal but since we're wealthy friends of Karl Lagerfeld we're just gonna wear fur if that's all right with you..." Gallery below.
