Gwyneth Paltrow, the Oscar-winning actress who usually is associated with environmentally friendly trends, is under fire from animal activists after appearing in an ad for Italian designer Tod’s draped in fox fur and wearing fur-lined boots.

The U.K.'s Telegraph has the details:

Last week, the actress was also criticized in the blogosphere when she allegedly wouldn’t mingle at an event in the Hamptons to protest the slaughter of horses, donkeys and mules for dog meat in Mexico. Many attendees paid $2,500 to attend the Amaryllis Farm Equine Rescue Organization event with Paltrow and Madonna -- who didn’t show -- as top billing.

Sounds like Paltrow, or at least her rep, has a lot of explaining to do.
