Oscar de la Renta is going fur-free come October

Your favorite purveyor of floral cocktail frocks is going fur-free. After decades of utilizing animal byproducts, the company has announced it will phase out all fur use by October of this year. Oscar de la Renta had long been known as a trendsetter in the fur segment, hailing from a time when fur and animal skins were a de rigueur appearance on runways and in department stores. (Who remembers Anna Wintour famously saying, “There’s always a way to wear fur; personally, I have it on my back” in The September Issue documentary!). But times have changed, and along with many other industry leaders, including Wintour herself, de la Renta has removed itself from fur trade altogether. In a statement provided to The Daily, PETA championed the news, with executive vice president Tracy Reiman saying, “It took decades of PETA runway disruptions, protests, some carefully lobbed tofu cream pies, and pressure from activists worldwide, but Oscar de la Renta has finally followed the world into 2021 and banned fur.”

Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds make triumphant return to the red carpet

After more than a two year-hiatus, Hollywood’s hottest couple (and some would say nicest couple) reappeared last night for the premiere of Reynold’s latest movie, “Free Guy,” at Manhattan’s AMC Lincoln Square Theater. Be still our hearts! The ever-stylish pair showed up as bright as ever, with Blake wearing a heavily sequined pink Prabal Gurung cutout dress from the designer’s Resort ’22 collection, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Reynolds in a tan corduroy Brunello Cucinelli suit. The return of their loving energy to red carpet events makes us believe that, truly, America is healing!

Bo Derek & John Corbett have finally tied the knot

Aidan Shaw—excuse us, we mean John Corbett—let it slip yesterday on CBS daytime show The Talk that he and his longtime partner Bo Derek got married quietly in 2020. The actors have actually been together for 20-odd years, having met just after Derek’s late husband of 22 years died in 1998. The duo apparently got hitched around Christmas last year. Corbett told host Jerry O’Connell that, “We’re pretty private people, so we didn’t make an announcement.” Well, consider it announced! Congratulations to the chic couple!
