I am surprised that some of you do not recognize more of these pictures. The sad thing, however, is that the beautiful Tatjana became one of PeTA's "We'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" Models of Compassion, back in 1994. Unlike some of the others, I have not heard of her ever defecting from the PeTA fold. As of September 2004:




Naomi Campbell was one of five models to sign up to Peta's "We'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" poster campaign in 1994, in which the ladies featured did exactly that on billboards across the country. She was sacked as a spokesperson for the group in March 1997, however, after she appeared at a Milan fashion show modelling real fur. She has since commented: "It's my fault because I don't think I really understood the ethics then. But I eat meat. I wear leather. I don't want to be a hypocrite." The other four - Emma Sjoberg, Tatjana Patitz, Heather Stewart-Whyte and Fabienne Terwinghe - have stuck to their guns and refused the pelt pound (or dollar). Cindy Crawford is the latest model to renege on her publicly declared views about fur. Although she did not sign up to the original Peta anti-fur campaign in 1994, she signed the group's Models of Compassion petition in August that year, saying she would speak up on behalf of animals by not wearing fur. Yet last month she was reported to have signed a contract to promote Blackglama fur coats. The company uses hundreds of pelts to create a single garment.
