500 Days of Kristin, Day 291: Kristin Thrilled to Support PETA in Limited Capacity

As it says in the “Charity work and public image” section of her Wikipedia page, Kristin Cavallari once appeared in ads for PETA, the animal rights organization favored by celebutantes who want to pose nude “for a cause.” Though Kristin did not actually appear naked in her ad, which aired sometime between 2006 and 2007, she did roll around on the floor with a bunny and offer her candid thoughts about wearing fur.

“What I would say to people who wear fur is, ‘You wouldn’t want someone killing you for your skin,’” Kristin said. “I mean, it’s the same thing.”

Is wearing leather also the same thing? According to PETA, yes—the organization claims that “with every pair of leather shoes that you buy, you sentence an animal to a lifetime of suffering.”


This perhaps was not top of mind for Kristin when she created her shoe line years later in 2012. The Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry collection features several booties, flats, and heels made of genuine leather.

This has been 500 Days of Kristin.
