Vote for 2009’s Worst Dressed

Before you read further, let me caution you.

Some of  your fave celebs may be nominated for this title.

And it’s not because they don’t have a great fashion sense.

It’s because Peta’s calling them out for insisting on incorporating fur into their outfits.

Nominees include Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Ashton Kutcher and Lindsay Lohan.

Vote now.

Peta Targets Armani

Seems like no designer who disses animal rights can escape Peta’s rage.

This time, they’re targeting Armani.

The activist group really got my attention with this vivid description on their web site.

Recent undercover investigations of rabbit fur farms and slaughterhouses in China and France—countries where Armani has bought fur—reveal that workers pulled rabbits out of their cages by their ears and shocked them in the head, sometimes multiple times, while the animals screamed. The bleeding rabbits twitched and shook with their eyes open wide before they died.

So sad! :-(

If you’re gung-ho about animal rights, help Peta convince Armani to drop fur in time for the Oscars — the deadline they’ve set for this action alert.

PETA People Get Naked


PETA hits San Diego on Monday.

Continuing on their “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign, PETA’s nude activists will be standing on the public sidewalk near Furs by Graf.

And they’ll be wearing nothing but a heart-shaped sign saying, “Fur–Out, Love–In,” and red underwear  to take their message of compassion in fashion to consumers for Valentine’s Day.

When:   Monday, February 9, 12 noon
Where:  7670 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego

Peta v. Urban Outfitters

Every now and then, PETA puts a fashion designer / retailer on the spot.

This time around, it’s Urban Outfitters for selling vintage fur in their stores.

PETA has issued an Action Alert for its supporters.

PETA recently learned that Urban Outfitters is selling real fur, and while the fur appears to be vintage, selling any fur sends the unacceptable message that it is OK to trap, beat, drown, and anally or vaginally electrocute animals—and even skin animals alive—for clothing.

We need you to tell Urban Outfitters that spreading this message is not acceptable.
