Fur has been synonymous with luxury and glamour for centuries. Though it was originally worn by people in cold, Northern climates, it quickly became a beloved material for royalty, the upper classes, and eventually celebrities. Below are some celebrities that regularly love(d) to wear fur in their outfits, whether it’s on screen, the red carpet, or just out and about.
Actresses from Hollywood’s Golden Age loved to adorn their gowns and pearls with lush furs. Stars like Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth, Jean Harlow, and Lucille Ball were all fans.
