PETA’s iconic “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign was launched by The Go-Go’s in the late ’80s and has since featured celebrities such as Christy Turlington, Wendy Williams, Melissa Etheridge, Elisabetta Canalis, and many others. Stars have stripped down in support of PETA’s other campaigns, too, appearing in blue and green bodypaint (Maggie Q) to resemble the Earth in order to promote eco-friendly vegan eating or as a tiger (TLC’s Chilli) to speak out against the abuse of animals in circuses. Others have worn nothing but strategically placed lettuce leaves à la Tia Mowry or colorful tattoos for our “Ink, Not Mink” series, including Steve-O and Tim Howard. It’s all in support of PETA’s motto: “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.”
