Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Impresses PETA

Don't Miss:
Former model and French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy may be a globally recognized fashion plate, but she dresses with a conscience.

In a letter to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Bruni-Sarkozy reportedly wrote:
I do not wear, buy, or own fur or animal skin other than leather or skin of animals raised for feeding purposes. I am not a vegetarian and I don't find it illogical to wear skins of animals whose meat is also eaten.

I would gladly consider giving away sable, fox and other fur coats - if I owned any.
While it isn't exactly clear what prompted Bruni-Sarkozy to write the letter (PETA protesters did raise quite a ruckus at the last Paris Fashion Week), it's won her some fans from the animal rights organization.

PETA Vice President Dan Mathews told Page Six, "Carla's obviously forward thinking. And when she gets the chic, nonleather shoes we're sending from Stella McCartney's Paris boutique, we're confident she'll see that no animals have to be fashion victims."

If only it were so easy to score a free pair of Stella McCartney shoes.
