Pamella Roland prefers fur for fall

Whether real or fake, it was all about the fur on the runway at Pamella Roland's 2012 New York Fashion Week show. Not to mention, Maria Menounos made her runway modeling debut since she's such a big fan of the designer.

But it wasn't just the big names at the show that wowed on-lookers; the woodsy theme and a bright red "little riding hood" fur coat also drew major attention.

And it was that good... we still don't know the difference!
