Christian Serratos and PETA Battle the Blizzard

Published by PETA.

Did you hear about the head-turning, headline-capturing, and climate-defying event that hit D.C. this weekend? No, not the record-breaking blizzard—we’re talking about Saturday’s opening of “Naked Ambition: 20 Years of PETA’s Sexy Celebrity Ads” at the Govinda Gallery in Georgetown.

While many people in the D.C. area were bundled up inside, Twilight star Christian Serratos, who flew in from California to be at the event, was right when she said of the weather, “It will ruin everything but PETA’s determination.” In fact, the weather seemed to provide PETA campaigner Michelle Cho with some inspiration—to take PETA’s campaign back out into the street, where it first started.




Cho, in nothing more than a G-string, was accompanied by an underwear-clad Jack Ryan and Serratos—who remained fully clothed on the insistence of her mother—for a bit of frolicking fun in the snowdrifts just outside the gallery. The three of them literally stopped traffic—monstrous snowplows, to be exact—and captured the attention of plenty of curious onlookers.

Fifty people braved the snowstorm to attend the show, which features photographs of Pamela Anderson, Tyra Banks, Dennis Rodman, Alicia Silverstone, and tons of other celebrities—including, of course, Serratos herself.

The blizzard came and went, but the “Naked Ambition” exhibition will be at the Govinda Gallery until January 9. Holiday road trip, anyone?
