We know Torrey DeVitto (Meredith) loves animals and isn’t down with fur thanks to a video she shot for PETA. Now she and husband (and Vampire Diaries co-star) Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) are hosting a fashion show for The Humane Society on September 22 to get the message out that “There is nothing sexy about wearing animal fur!!,” as Torrey tweeted today.
The H-Couture 2012 event proves clothes can be animal friendly and fashion forward. “We are excited to be hosting the first ever H-Couture event on behalf of The Humane Society of the United States because we both support events that promote compassion for animals,” Paul said in a press release.
According to Torrey, “Fashion should be fun, and I don’t see how wearing animal fur can be anything other than cruel and unnecessary. This event will show that anyone can be fashion-conscious without animals having to pay the price.”
The fashion show will benefit The HSUS’s Fur-Free Campaign, which encourages designers and retailers to find alternatives to fur in their fashions.
