Celebs who are pro- and anti-furLions and tigers and bears … oh my! No, we're not taking a trip to the zoo, we're just looking through the furry closets of Hollywood moms. While some celebrities won't let PETA … or any animal (sorry, Bambi) … stand in their way of rocking the latest furry fashions, others hold strong to their anti-fur activism.
We've compiled a hairy-ed list of five celebrities who aren't afraid to get their fur on … and five who prefer petting animals to wearing them.
1. Jennifer Lopez
Jenny from the block may have Marc Anthony off her back … but sadly we can't say the same for her and PETA. J. Lo continues to be hounded by the animal rights group for her frequent use of fur in her clothing line.

Hip-hop superstar Beyonce has long been criticized for her fur-wearing ways. While PETA was happy to see her abandon fur last winter, they can't be thrilled with the fur stole she's seen wearing in her latest album cover.

Wear a Tuxedo Jacket Out at Night
Just because it's too chilly to don a dress, doesn't mean you can't rock a super-hot date-night look. In a slim-cut, white jacket, Jessica Alba proved that menswear can be seductive.
A Fur Collar Makes Any Outfit Cooler
Add a fur (real or faux) collar, shrug or scarf over your jacket or coat and you'll instantly look more stylish. Rihanna used this trick to dress up jeans and a T-shirt.

Invest in a Statement Coat
Olivia Wilde's Chanel topper is so gorgeous it doesn't matter what she was wearing underneath. Look for a version with jewel embellishments and a fun pattern or fabric.
Mix Bold Colors
On the set of Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester paired an orange, printed coat with blue cap. Try combining hues that seem to clash for a quirky-cute result.
Take it to the Max in Thigh-High Boots
Nothing says sexy quite like a pair of black, leather, over-the-knee boots. Kim Kardashian lives by this rule.

It seems that when orders were placed in September, Target had not fully completed production on all clothing and home goods that were promised to buyers. Clearly, they underestimated the popularity and hype surrounding the designer collaboration. (Let's hope they're better prepared for the upcoming Jason Wu for Target collection). Many Missoni items had lengthy shipping delays or were canceled altogether. While we've seen a few items trickle back into stock (all the men's ties and some dishes were back last month), more than 50 items were just returned to the store website. If you submitted a complaint with Target about the way they handled the Missoni launch or your order, you may have received a $25 gift card in the mail. We just used ours toward that instantly-sold-out Missoni throw blanket (it's still available in twoRead More »from Missoni for Target: back in stock for the holidays!

Zara gold dress
Shop for a structured dress with a tailored waistline that hits right at your belly button. Any lower will emphasize your middle and higher can imitate a maternity frock.

Kensie black dress
Shop for a shallow scoop-neck frock that'll allow for a full-support bra. Coverage is important, but avoid cuts that hide your collarbones, as it can look suffocating on larger chested women.
