Joss Stone Urges Fans to ‘Wear Your Own Skin’
It’s a side of Joss Stone you’ve never seen before: the singer appears as a crocodile, with tears running down her face and a scared look in her eyes.

The soul singer teamed up with us for our new advert, photographed by Andrzej Dragan, exposing the terror that all exotic animals feel when they’re killed for their skin.
“Although I’m not as familiar with crocodiles as I am with dogs and horses, I know that all animals are capable of suffering. I hope when people see footage of what happens to crocodiles and alligators killed for their skin to be turned into handbags, they’ll join me in leaving wildlife out of their wardrobes
– Joss Stone
This advert comes on the heels of a PETA exposé that revealed the horrific conditions of the supply farms used by Hermès. On these farms, alligators and crocodiles are trapped in barren, crowded pits. The reptiles are shot with captive-bolt guns and stabbed with box cutters but are often still alive and moving after these crude attempts at slaughter.
