It's a wonderfully huge white fox fur wrap that sits high on her shoulders and covers half her head in profile. So, basically, it could have been a little larger… but good effort.
There's no other fur in the film and this one is only around for about a minute in total. The formal “fur ratio” is about 1%. It's a really great 1% though. Harlow's white fox in this one is a classic. It's near the beginning of the film, so you can skip the rest once she takes it off.
