While yesterday’s PETA-centric threesome ad featuring Justin Gaston confused us as to its message, this new one with Jenna Dewan (wife of Channing Tatum) artfully protests the use of exotic skins in fashion.

The 29-year-old actress dropped her clothing and slipped under some scaly body paint for PETA’s new ad campaign against the use of accessories made from snakes, lizards, alligators and crocodiles. “I couldn’t believe that that is what happens for a wallet or a purse,” Jenna said in her interview with the organization.

Said PETA,

“There are many fashionable and cruelty-free alternatives to using real animal skins. Fake snake, mock croc, and pleather are a few realistic and luxurious materials that can be used to achieve the same look—without stealing someone else’s skin. Popular retailers such as Victoria’s Secret, H&M, Overstock.com, Cole Haan, and Nike have all signed PETA’s pledge promising never to sell exotic skins.”
