Tiny West Hollywood has taken a big stand against fur.
The West Hollywood City Council, which represents a population of less than 35,000 people living between Beverly Hills and Hollywood, last week approved the nation’s first ban on fur apparel sales in a 3-to-1 vote. Although the city is small, it is home to some of Southern California’s ritziest retail real estate along Robertson Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, where stores such as Kitson, Balenciaga, Alberta Ferretti, H. Lorenzo, Maxfield, Arcade and Beckley will have to rid their racks of fur items by Sept. 21, 2013 unless a planned lawsuit to halt the fur ban prevails.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
