Vampire Diaries Stars to Host HSUS Fashion Show

Next month, two actors from the hit television show will be presenting at the animal-welfare organization's special event.

On September 22, Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto of the CW’s popular series The Vampire Diaries will be the hosts for the Humane Society of the United States’ H-Couture 2012 event, a fashion show at a private residence that will showcase cruelty-free clothing. Additionally, top designers such as John Bartlett, Marc Bouwer, and Charlotte Ronson will be presenting designs on the runway in support of the organization’s No Fur Pin campaign, which encourages celebrities to commit to a fur-free wardrobe. In a statement, DeVitto says, “Fashion should be fun, and I don’t see how wearing animal fur can be anything other than cruel and unnecessary. This event will show that anyone can be fashion-conscious without animals having to pay the price.” Proceeds from the event will go toward HSUS’ Fur-Free Campaign, which aims to promote compassionate substitutes for animal fur within the fashion industry.
