These are the famous words of Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet, who recently launched M.A.C.'s alice+olivia collection. Arriving at the launch in a vibrant red number and sporting one of her own pieces, a Mongolian Lamb vest, she looked nothing short of chic. However, the designer talked about her mixed feelings towards her vegan nature and some of the clothes that she makes, beautiful but against what she believes in.
"I'm vegan. I don't eat animals. I don't put meat in my body. So every once in a while I think it's okay to wear it. But I made it — I'm probably going to hell."
A similar viewpoint on the fur debate is endorsed by Kelly Bensimon, who talked about the issue on a recent episode of Real Housewives. This was noted by Lucy Sykes who attended the launch with husband, Euan Rellie to congratulate Bendet on all her work.
Bendet's last words at the evening on the matter were "I don't feel that guilty wearing it. I don't know why. It doesn't make sense. But something about putting it inside me feels really barbaric. Something about wearing it just feels a little glamorous."
