    During winter in Italy one sees loads of fur on the fashionable streets…Italians love everything real so you won’t see a lot of faux fur…which leads me to question if PETA exits there?!…I must say this lady looks pretty fabulous in her perfectly cut fur coat,stylishly chic!

      These days people don’t see it the same. Faux fur/leather takes around a 1,000 years to degrade in a landfill, leaking poison into the Earth that entire time. Meanwhile real fur/leather is very biodegradable, and causes no damage to the environment. So we now know that natural fabrics are much better for the world around us. Thus PETA is no longer as vocal about fur.

    I don’t like this fur coat. With her figure and hair she would look great in this setting wearing whatever else.

      I am with you- I do not see any elegance in fur. And not very much of it in those light colored stockings.

        I think the monochromatic look is extremely chic, and this flatters her legs perfectly. But then, I think fur always looks amazing. Not to mention warm.

    Ah, Bella! Rewards and indicators of success are as generation-driven as any other value system. She looks elegant and refined. The question is … which bouquet will look best on the dining room table? All the blossoms pale, next to you, my Dear. Don’t stay out too late.

    I always say that every woman in Italy gets a mink when they turn 50. At least, that’s how it seems.

      What a shame! I live in the Midwest, and have more need of a fur then Italians! Its bloody cold. The people around here would never match her elegance.

          The comments from the past are such a wonderful reminder that fashion lives on in a case like this. I can not help but think she had her eyes on the white flowers center top that had not opened yet! Agree?

    I love the composition of this photo. I love her look, but equally love that she is in front of all those beautiful flowers.

    Fur is ALWAYS regressive, cruel & shows a lack of conscience in the wearer (and admirers). Let’s enter the 21st century.

      I agree.

      I could not have said it better. Makes me happy, to see some empathetic people here.

      Old thinking. Gortex and all sorts of man made fabrics that keep you warm, as well as fake fur is TERRIBLE. They fill up landfills, and take an insanely long time to degrade, and poison the ground. Fur is environmentally sound. Research it a bit.

    Fur is beautiful, preferably alive and not skinned.

    I love the color of that coat!
    I’m always surprised that blonde minks aren’t popular. So Doris Day.

    I counted more than 30 dead animals on her back…

    I love this shot because it gives me a warm cool feeling. I want to see the face of the subject but I know she is smiling.

    This is a vintage fur probably late 80s, then they were fashionable horizontally, as in the early 70s
