Actress Joins PETA Campaign for Fashion Without Cruelty

MIAMI – New York actress Daniella Alonso has joined the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ campaign promoting fashion without cruelty.

Alonso, currently starring in NBC’s “Revolution,” appears in a sensual pose wearing a bodice and miniskirt of synthetic leather, together with the words “Pleather Yourself.”

“Revolutionize Your Wardrobe: Spare Cows and Exotic Animals a Miserable Life and an Agonizing Death By Choosing Fake. For Their Sake,” says the PETA poster on which Alonso appears in a Robert Sebree photograph.

“I don’t understand why anyone would want to use the skin of an animal that has been tortured and abused,” Alonso, whose mother is Puerto Rican and whose father is from Peru, said.

Alonso joins other Latino artists like Eva Mendes, Roselyn Sanchez and Penelope Cruz in the fight to promote fashion choices that don’t entail the mistreatment and death of animals.

“Many of the millions of cows and other animals who are killed for their skins endure the horrors of factory farming, which include extreme crowding and deprivation as well as castration, branding, tail-docking, and dehorning – all without being given any painkillers. At slaughterhouses, animals routinely have their throats cut and are dismembered while they are still conscious,” PETA said.

Last week PETA announced that it will sponsor the care of a chicken rescued from mistreatment as a way of saying thanks to Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin for becoming a vegetarian. EFE
