Guess it wasn't faux: Celebrity fur-wearer Catherine Zeta-Jones tops PETA's Worst-Dressed List

February 12, 2010 |  9:37 pm

Czj Catherine Zeta-Jones may be just about the prettiest thing on two legs, but she's far from friendly to the four-legged set, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The ever-vocal animal rights group has placed Zeta-Jones at the top of its annual Worst-Dressed List with the explanation that her "creepy cow-skin pants, ugly fox coat and icky alligator bag" make the actress look "like she's working her way through Noah's ark with a knife."

Although Zeta-Jones nabbed the Worst-Dressed title, a number of other stars were hot on her heels. Also on PETA's list were perennial fur-wearer Jennifer Lopez ("She looks like Jenny from the butcher block in her old-school corpse coats," the group complains), Aretha Franklin (whose so-called "fur Snuggie" rivaled even her Inauguration Day hat in the audacity department), Rihanna, Jessica Simpson and mother-daughter fur-wearers Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. (Also called on the carpet by PETA was a "Real Housewives" star that, frankly, we've never heard of.)

PETA is planning to stage an anti-fur demonstration outside the Broadway theater where Zeta-Jones is performing in "A Little Night Music" before Saturday's matinee, according to Access Hollywood.

Celebrities previously named on PETA's Worst-Dressed List include Madonna, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Kanye West.
