Tofu Cream is the New Black: Anna Wintour Takes a Pie to the Face

French anti-fur activists said they struck Anna Wintour, editor of the U.S. edition of Vogue, in the face with a cream pie on Saturday to protest against her support for the use of animal fur by the fashion industry.

Wintour, dressed in a fur-trimmed black jacket, was hit in the face with a tofu cream pie as she left the Chloe fashion ready-to-wear show at the Tuileries Gardens in central Paris, members of the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said.

That's right, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, well-known for her frosty demeanor and equally frozen face, has been splashed twice in the kisser with tofu cream delight in the name of compassion for animals. It's getting to the point that high fashion should probably just embrace the whole concept, and not only stop using fur in their designs, but send their models tottering down the runway in pre-pied gowns and suits.
