The animal rights organization announced it is crowning Rihanna with the Compassion in Fashion Award for her choice not to use real leather. “Rihanna should take a bow for this stunning cruelty-free collection,” PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in a press release.
“With her new vegan collection, Rihanna shows how easy it is to create a killer look that no animal had to die for.”
The award comes after years of backlash from PETA, as Rihanna was previously targeted for wearing fur coats and feather-adorned clothing. But the new FENTY collection features high-quality faux-leather items, including a corset dress and skirt and button-down shirts. It is available to shop here.
