PETA, People for Ethical Treatment of Animals, is an organization that is not afraid of using provocative images and nudity for a better cause. There’s no denying that celebrities probably gain much more in such PR stunts than the animals they try to benefit, and disrobing for a real cause makes both the exhibitionists and their fans feel unembarrassed about the whole thing. Whatever it is, we love seeing these beautiful photos, and if they help the animals, all the better.
Dennis Rodman, a former NBA basketball player, went to NYC for Fashion Week. Most would think that he went to sit in the front row at a show, but instead he went to unveil his provocative PETA ad in the very tents where designers push their fur garments. He felt as though this was the perfect way to make a statement.
Lisa Edelstein, an American actress and playwright known for playing a hot Dean of Medicine on the TV drama House. Surprisingly, she is 48 years old and still sexy. Being vegetarian has treated her body really well!
Jamie Bamber, a British actor known for his role in the sci-fi TV show Battlestar Gallactica. Through this photo he is protesting the cruel killing of bears to make the Queen’s guards’ ceremonial caps.
Cindy Crawford, a supermodel looking fierce in a faux-fur Russian hat, holding a living cat still wearing his fur.
And finally: Khloe Kardashian, who has since then broke her partnership with PETA, had a gorgeous poster made for the “Fur? I’d rather go naked” campaign. Unfortunately, this seemed like a good idea at the time. However, according to some sources, she was accused of being a hypocrite for simultaneously selling fur items at Dash, the signature store she owns with her sister, Kim.
