Socialite Paris Hilton has become the latest target for animal rights group People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) - literally.

THE SIMPLE LIFE star was ambushed by an anti-fur activists last night (14FEB06) as she made her way to a London Fashion Week after-show party with designer JULIEN MACDONALD, after modelling at his show earlier in the evening.

But PETA protestors weren't after Hilton - they were out to attack Welsh MacDonald for his "relentless use of fur".

In a show last autumn (05) he even draped a baby fox fur around the neck of Jade Jagger.

He and his society guest, Hilton, were pelted with flour as they made their way to his late-night party.

PETA Europe's YVONNE TAYLOR says, "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."
