PETA Gives Scrawny Celebs the Skinny on Cruelty to Animals
London – Nicole Richie and Ashley Olsen may not have much of an appetite when it comes to food, but their craving for animal skins has landed them on PETA’s 2006 “Worst-Dressed” list:

1. Nicole Richie: This pelt-wearing party girl is all animal skin and bones. She’s an incredible shrinking woman with the heart to match.
2. Ashley Olsen: Wearing fur does add 20 pounds, but if Ashley wants to fill out her frame, we suggest using a fork instead.
3. Christina Ricci: Disregarding the holiday season’s “Peace on Earth” message, Ricci recently posed for a magazine cover wearing fur from slaughtered reindeer. At least she’s not into fur hats: Imagine how many more pelts it would take to cover that forehead.
4. Eva Longoria: You’d think she’d be more sympathetic to the plight of rabbits considering the way she screws around like one on Wisteria Lane.

Noticeably absent from the list this year is Paris Hilton, whose fur-wearing ways landed her at the top of PETA’s “Worst-Dressed” list last year. Paris now tells reporters that she’s had enough and is ditching her mink coats, fox collars and chinchilla trim. The tipping point came when she watched a gruesome exposé of the Chinese fur trade – in which animals are skinned alive – on PETA is hoping that Paris has really been enlightened but is taking a wait-and-see approach before asking her to be the next “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” model.
