See, PETA doesn't just make lists of the people who suck at getting dressed.

Ellen DeGeneres and Tim Gunn have been named Woman and Man of the Year by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for their friendly ways toward those with fur, scales, gills and other creaturely attributes.

"Their message that animals must be treated kindly and respectfully has reached scores of people, and many of them have changed their buying habits, all because Gunn and DeGeneres spoke up for the voiceless," PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement Wednesday.

DeGeneres has championed veganism since adopting the animal-product-eschewing practice in 2008, and Gunn prefers to make it work with fake fur, faux reptile prints and other animal-friendly fabrics.

The Project Runway mentor narrated the PETA documentary Fashion Victims, detailing the worst of the fur and snakeskin trades.


Take a cue from PETA and do some Fashion Policing.
