Some people aren't so thrilled with fur making a comeback, including Twiggy, who has called designers' actions "intolerably cruel," the Daily Mail UK reports.

She said, "I am very sad that some designers are still using real fur when the fake alternatives are so effective and so easily obtainable," and pointed to a new report from Animal Defenders International (ADI) that details "horrific conditions" at fur farms.

"It is no longer acceptable to ignore the suffering, and designers must take responsibility for the way that their fur is produced," she added.
