Gwyneth Paltrow is the latest celebrity to feel the wrath of anti fur campaigners.
The actress has angered PETA by appearing in the campaign for Tod's latest collection wearing fur lined boots and promoting animal skin bags, despite being a vegetarian.
The ad for the label's autumn/winter 2008 collection also features fox skin as well as ostrich and alligator skin bags.
PETA have criticised Gwyneth for setting a terrible example by taking money for the advert: 'Gwyneth Paltrow won't be the apple of her daughter's eye if she continues to flaunt fur,' said a PETA spokesperson.
'Gwyneth Paltrow should be ashamed. I can only assume that Paltrow either is ignorant of the facts or lacks human decency and compassion,' added Mark Glover, director of Respect for Animals
