North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, bundled up when heading back to her New York City apartment. That's to be expected certainly, but the coat is rumored to be made of crystal fox fur and said to cost about $3,500. PETA has responded to North West's fuzziness to Page Six, noting:
Kids are naturally drawn to animals and sympathetic to their plight, and there’s no reason to think that North is any different. If the fur coat that she’s been dressed in is real, animals have suffered for vanity, something that we’re sure neither North nor any little girl her age would support.
PETA might have a point. The 20-month-old does not look particularly thrilled with her environmentally unfriendly, super expensive outerwear.
