Actress Rei Kikukawa, 35, is the 2014 winner of Fur of the Year, an award given by the Japan Fur Association to the celebrity whose image best matches fur. The award has been given eight times before.
A beaming Kikukawa appeared before the press wearing a fur coat worth 3 million yen, and said, "I'll have to polish my image so I will look good in fur."
Asked if she would wear the coat to go out drinking, Kikukawa said, "I don't think I could do that. It would be nice to wear it while walking along a street with beautiful illuminations for Christmas. But if I owned this coat, I'd probably keep it at home in a safe."© Japan Today
