Why Did Stella McCartney Go “Ballistic” Over this Ad?

It was reported that Stella McCartney went “ballistic” when she spotted this Hockley ad in Vogue featuring her lingerie…under a mink coat.

We thought it was pretty obvious that Stella, a super-strict vegetarian and super-vocal animal rights activist who doesn’t use leather or fur in her designs would freak out over something like this, but apparently it didn’t occur to the stylist for the British fur boutique. The worst part is that lingerie was loaned to the stylist by the fashion house because they thought it would be used for an editorial piece. What a mess.

Hockley has apologized, and they’re pulling the ad, which cost about $20,000 to shoot.

Damn. Stella is powerful. I pity that poor stylist.
