Much has been said of Cloris Leachman’s appearance as a PETA pin-up promoting the vegetarian lifestyle in a gown made from cabbage. The general consensus is that she looks gorgeous; but the over-arching question is: Who created such a dress? The LA Times style blog hit PETA up for the deets. From the article,

According to PETA, the gown was the creation of L.A.-based costume designer Mia Gyzander … and required several dozen heads of red cabbage and green leaf lettuce. The bodice was assembled over the course of a week. “But to make sure Cloris was dressed in the freshest produce available, the full dress was assembled the day of the shoot,” PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told us.

And just in case you haven’t yet had your Cloris-fill, the lovely, leafy Leachman will be signing copies of her new autobiography “Cloris” Tuesday night at the Barnes & Noble at the Grove at Farmers Market.

Beautiful — and we’re happy to once more see the always amusing and gracious Leachman in the media spotlight.
