Can You Tell the Difference Between Real and Faux Fur? I can. But, according to sources, Kate Winslet, an anti-fur advocate, didn't feel the difference when posing au naturel for Vanity Fair. Pre-photo shoot, the magazine told Winslet the blanket was faux. In reality she was posing on a $14,677 silver fox Frette fur throw. Vanity Fair has apologized to the actress for the major mix-up.
