PETA’s famous faces

PETA | 2009

In 2009, Cloris Leachman donned this surprisingly stylish red cabbage dress for PETA. According to PETA, the gown was the creation of L.A.-based costume designer Mia Gyzander-- who had tossed the salad worn by Alyssa Milano a few years back and required several dozen heads of red cabbage and green leaf lettuce.

Mates of State
Mates of State’s Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel’s ad for the “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” series is one of the few we could show you here from what is perhaps PETA’s most famous campaign. Christy Turlington, Eva Mendes, Roselyn Sanchez, Khloe Kardashian and many others have shown some skin for PETA. (PETA)
