PETA’s People of the Year

Tim Gunn and Ellen DeGeneres have been named PETA’s Man and Woman of 2009.

Last week, animal-rights group PETA announced Tim Gunn and Ellen DeGeneres as its Man and Woman of the Year. According to PETA representatives, Gunn and DeGeneres have used their celebrity to promote vegetarianism and animal-rights causes. In 2009, Gunn narrated a PETA expose on fur farming, ensured that all of his work-related enterprises—from hosting Project Runway to his position as chief creative officer at Liz Claiborne—are fur-free, and has encouraged fashion houses around the world to adopt faux fur. DeGeneres has been similarly active in the vegan community, announcing her vegan lifestyle in early 2009 and promoting veganism on The Ellen Show throughout the year.
