Fall Fashions to Make You Look Fat and Hairy

Written by PETA | October 19, 2011

Attention, ladies. Now you, too, can cause your neighbors to phone in Big Foot sightings. You, too, can look like the frightening “before” picture on an infomercial for Epilady. And you, too, can look like you are trying to kidnap the cast of Cats.

How? It’s fall fashion season, and mixed in with some lovely new styles (such as Stella McCartney’s color-block sheath dress that celebs are loving) are flops that make it seem like designers have been hitting the sauce a lot harder than they’ve been hitting the sketch pad. One design that is particularly puzzling is this epic fail: jackets with fur sleeves.

Of course! Women want their arms to look fat and hairy. Why didn’t we think of that? But seriously, if you do favor a furry look, go with faux, like fauxier to the stars Donna Salyers’ Fabulous-Furs, so that you’ll avoid killing more animals than the entire Cullen clan.

    I support PETA, if you really like fur coat, you can dress artificial fur, a high quality faux fur just like really and can meet what you want to feel, that will not hurt small animals

    Yes, Yes, Yes!!!! Waaaaaay better than a naked person. I IGNORED the naked people. It was a ploy and not real… I saw it as a gimmick like all the gimmicks of advertising and I ignored. THIS is what you need to use. Pictures like this that will not let you ignore, will make people recognize the pain and anguish that they are causing.

  • Caroline says:

    I agree that this picture would be very effective as a campaign. I was shocked when I realised what I was seeing, imagine that picture enlarged on a bus or billboard.

  • Rev. Meg says:

    That picture of the poor fox should be in a fashion magazine with the caption “Because my sleeves were made into a coat for some human slave to fashion, that’s why!”

  • Marina Drake says:

    This would indeed be a very eye-catching anti-fur ad, because at first, you don’t know what that odd-looking red thing is in the cage with the fox—“What is that? A bone he’s got to chew on, or…?—which, as your brain computes what it’s seeing, quickly changes to the horror of “Oh my god, that’s his leg bone! The pain he must be in!!”—and then you want to read and know more, to know who did this and why and what you can do to stop it. And it definitely made me want to buy a faux fur, too!

  • Captain Zwibbles says:

    See Peta. I think this fox in an anti-fur ad is MUCH better than a naked person. Someone can ignore a message with a naked person, but a fox with a bone showing is hard to ignore. I don’t know if an ad like this could be put up anywhere, but I’m sure it would draw more attention than one of the naked people ads.
