Known for her love of fur, Kim Kardashian West has announced she’ll no longer be wearing the real thing. Instead she has had all her existing and loved coats recreated with faux fur. Simple!

Kim made the announcement to her 141 million followers via Instagram, where she captioned a photo of her five-year-old daughter, North, wearing one of her furs with:

Remember when I wore this! She picked out the same look lol but fun fact – I took all of my fave furs and remade them in faux fur.

And that’s follow-through on a declaration earlier this year, when Kim announced that faux fur was her “new thing”. It was reported that this change of heart came about after Pamela Anderson wrote to her, asking her to consider faux fur instead of fur that’s come from an animal.

Kim’s decision to ditch real fur for faux is in line with a bigger fashion movement that has seen luxury couture houses ban fur from their collections. The list continues to grow and now includes Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Michael Kors, Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier and Burberry.

Whatever the reason, we applaud her decision to ditch real fur for good!
