New York Fashion Week: Fur Real

During the New York Fashion Week fur has been spotted on shoes, hats and even sunglasses, let alone the more traditional outerwear garments. It’s not just your ordinary mink coats, last week we’ve seen every kind of fur imaginable from the sleek kidassia, to lustrous lynx, to textured broadtail, to sexy chinchilla, to luxurious Russian sable. Here are some of the stand-out runway looks:

Of course the most extravagant garments were delivered by Dennis Basso, who is renowned for his luxurious furs and who has a great following from Aspen to Moscow. No, by the following we don’t mean the PeTA protestants, we’re talking celebrities like Sharon Stone, Brooke Shields, Kim Cattrall, Ivana Trump, Eva Longoria and Tinsley Mortimer.

Now, if you’re in the market for a very special fur coat, but not prepared to wait until the new designer collections hit the stores, check out Zsa Zsa Gabor‘s opulent fur collection, which is being auctioned by her husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt on his website in order to pay for the Hollywood star’s medical care.. Really?

What strikes me is that Zsa Zsa’a only daughter, Constance Francesca Hilton (yes, a great aunt of Paris and Nicky Hilton in case you were wondering) does not have a say over her mother’s lavish wardrobe… inFURiating much?
