I see from Heathman's Diary (Gwyn sheds her clothes, H&H October 9) that our very own green celeb Belsize bombshell, Gwyneth Paltrow (left) is selling off her designer clobber for charity.

Is this to make way for the fur she is currently sporting in advertisements for Tod's?

Green Gwyn should know better than to promote a product whereby fur animals are either caught in leg-hold traps and their heads stamped on, or electrocuted up the anus so as not to spoil the pelt. Recently I nearly fainted when I was shown a PETA (People's Ethical Treatment of Animals) video shot in China of a racoon being skinned alive, leaving it with not a hair on its body, save for its eyelashes. The fur trade is not fair trade, Gwynie!
