Kim Kardashian has taken to Instagram to post about her new found love of faux fur under her latest snap.
The reality star shared a photo of herself wearing a colourful, Aztec print coat with extravagant faux fur trimmed arms and collar captioned, “Faux fur… it’s my new thing❤️🔥💋”
She appeared to be channeling Cher in a chic, black crop top and trouser two piece with layered turquoise necklaces underneath the coat.
Kim’s decision to stop wearing fur comes after vegan activist Pamela Anderson sent her a coral, faux mink coat in the hope it would encourage her to rethink her fashion choices, at the end of last year.
The gift was sent along with an emotional letter in which Anderson wrote: “I know your young fans would admire you and your brand even more if you dropped fur.”
@KimKardashian I’m so thrilled you’ve decided to try a faux fur life! Sending you a massive hug, homeslice.

Her post has garnered the support of Sia, who’s been vegan since 2014. The Cheap Thrills singer expressed her excitement and praised Kim’s decision to go faux on Twitter.
Comments under Kim’s Instagram photo are also full of support.
One fan wrote: “Thank you so much for choosing compassionate fashion! Faux looks so good on you!”
Another said: “Killing the look, not killing animals! Awesome Kim for being stylish without hurting animals!❤️❤️❤️❤️”
Kim’s sister Khloe was once a vocal supporter for animal rights organisation PETA and had even starred in the anti-fur campaign, ‘Naked’, in which she appeared nude on posters with the tagline, ‘I’d rather go naked than wear fur.’ This was before she denounced her affiliation with them after Kim was flour-bombed by an activist, who had links to PETA, for wearing fur in 2012.
