People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals PETA is an animal rights advocacy organization that is famous for provocative advertising aimed at promoting vegetarianism and combating any forms of perceived mistreatment of animals.
I'm proud to have been part of the now-iconic ad series — and as a long-time animal defender, I take great delight in reflecting on how far the anti-fur movement has come. When PETA released the first ad in the series in the early '90s, featuring The Go-Go's, fur wasn't an issue yet — it was a status symbol. And in some ways, that's understandable.

Karina looks towards the viewer of the ad but her body is facing towards her dance partner who we know can see what we can't: everything.
