Throughout the Ages: Furs in Hollywood

From Marilyn Monroe to Liz Taylor, vintage Hollywood is full of famous stars wearing one thing, fur! Whether it’s a stole, or a dramatic knee-length coat, fur always made a statement in the Golden Age of Hollywood, and continues today. Evan’s Furs recently held a booth at the Arthritis Foundation’s Annual Oscar Experience in order to help attendees experience the glamour and luxury vintage fur can bring upon the wearer. While SmartFem took pictures of the gorgeous guests at Oscar Experience, we reminded many of the models to channel their inner movie star!

From ad campaigns such as BLACKGLAMA, which featured many A-list celebrities donning furs from the 60s to the 80s, to last weekend’s booth with the elegant guests at the Ritz-Carlton Phoenix, with a style like fur, it is important to do the fur, as well as the previous wearers before you, justice.

Here are a few famous faces wearing stunning fur throughout the ages:
