PETA Names Paris Hilton Worst-Dressed
NEW YORK – Move over Mr. Blackwell, PETA has issued its own "worst-dressed" list — based on fur, not style. Paris Hilton was named the year's worst-dressed celebrity by the animal rights group Thursday.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals cites the hotel heiress/reality TV star for wearing fur coats.
Hilton is followed on the 2005 worst-dressed list by her friend Kimberly Stewart ("she and best bud Paris are so clueless about animals" writes PETA), Lisa Gastineau, Victoria Gotti and Tara Reid.
Martha Stewart headed last year's list, but has recently reversed course. In September, the domestic diva hosted a PETA-produced video on fur and said, "I used to wear real fur, but, like many others, I had a change of heart when I learned what actually happens to the animals."
Alicia Keys and Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, both previously accused by PETA, have also since said they've given up fur.
