The Top Six Fur Coats of 2015

February 19, 2016

2015 was a banner year for fur coats. The Revenant, Slow West, Carol and The Hateful Eight boasted an impressive collection of fur coats that were practical and fabulous. I understand the backlash against the coats, but, in these films they seem acceptable because of the time and place they were worn. These coats are basically extensions of the characters and in several cases they prevented them from dying. So, without further ado here are the top six fur coats of 2015!

6. Chewbacca – Star Wars: The Force Awakens 

This one is a stretch but Chewbacca sure does wear his fur coat well. His fur seems practical and doesn’t get in the way. Also, it looks nice and conditioned, which is interesting because we never see him cleaning or shampooing his mane.



5. Jonathan Brugh – What We Do in the Shadows 

Brugh’s character Deacon looks like an arena rocker in the fur coat and I really want to know when and where he got it. You need to watch What We Do in the Shadows.

4. Kurt Russell – The Hateful Eight

Sometimes I wonder if the fur coat grew out of Russell’s mustache. The fur coat would engulf any other man but when on Kurt Russell’s broad shoulders it fits perfectly. The fur coat was a practical item of clothing and it seems to have many stories. Kurt Russell normally rocks a great sleeveless t-shirt but I hope his new thing is the fur coat.



3. Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant

DiCaprio would’ve surely died if it wasn’t for the coat. If you’ve watched The Revenant you know that DiCaprio was basically nature’s punching bag for two hours. However, with the help of the wonder coat he survived and found redemption.



2. Cate Blanchett – Carol

Cate Blanchett looks fantastic in her Carol fur coat. This coat has been the focal point of the advertising and the picture below proves why. The costume designer Sandy Powell recently did an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and she broke down the importance of the fur coat. A lot of work went into making Blanchett look fabulous.

The Winner: Ben Mendelsohn – Slow West

I have a feeling that this fur coat just grew around Mendelsohn one day. He went to sleep and woke up with a beautiful and warm coat around him. Mendelsohn loved the coat so much he wore it to Sundance and looked awesome! Definitely check out Slow West.

    Just started watching The Hateful Eight and I’m left to wonder…just how heavy is Kurt Russell’s fur coat in that? It’s gotta’ be heavy!
