Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has been reportedly pelted with flour after her catwalk appearance at the opening night of London Fashion Week.
The hotel heiress's evening had otherwise started without any incident, but as she made her gala entry into designer Julien Macdonald's after show party, she was targetted by activists from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The protestors were actually targeting designer Julian Macdonald, who uses fur, as he and the hotel heiress made their way at Cuckoo Club in Mayfair. And, while Hilton was hit on the arm by the flour, Macdonald was covered. However, both appeared to laugh off the incident.
"There is nothing remotely fashionable about the torture and death of animals killed for fur," The Mirror quoted a spokeswoman for Peta, as saying after the attack.
"Julien Macdonald may have been able to ignore images of bloody skinned animals gasping for breath in the past, but hopefully a dash of flour will help him rise to the occasion and forsake fur once and for all," she added.
A spokesman for Macdonald declined to comment.
Hilton had earlier opened the show when she received rapturous applause while modelling a chic, fishtail wedding dress for the designer.
