Kelly Brook’s new overly-Photoshopped PETA ad: tragic, fug & hideous?


As you may remember, ever since I saw candid photos of Kelly Brook in a bikini, I’ve been a fan girl for Kelly. I used to not care that much about her, but her spectacular hourglass figure has made me a true believer. So I shall lay it down on the line for my lady: this new PETA ad is fug as hell. Kelly’s strength is not her face, but once you get past gawking at her body, she is much, much prettier than this. PETA Photoshopped Kelly to look ridiculously unattractive. Not only that, it seems like they airbrushed out part of her jaw, right? Like, that’s not even the SHAPE of her face. Here’s a photo of Kelly from last night – just a paparazzi photo of going into a fashion event:


So much better in candid photos.

Anyway, Kelly is taking part in PETA’s “Whose Skin Are You In?” campaign. Kelly was shot by Bryan Adams (ugh), and the point of the campaign is to “protest at how snakes, lizards and alligators and other exotic animals are skinned alive.” Kelly said, “It makes my skin crawl to think about the violent ways snakes, lizards, alligators and other exotic creatures are raised and killed for boots, bags and belts. Our message is to support the designers who are creative without being destructive, and go for the great fakes that pay tribute to the animals’ beauty without killing them.” Sure. I don’t own any exotic-skin handbags, so personally, I guess I’m okay with this. Except for the part where I kind of want an alligator-skin purse.

    Tragic, fug & hideous?

    Again, all three.

    The angle of her head looks really weird — like, they removed her head from another shot and placed it on her body for this one.

  2. gee says:

    Peta is the worst. They euthanize animals to “save them.” And don’t tell me these actresses don’t wear leather.

  3. Lila says:

    The whole nose and mouth area looks like a totally different person. I don’t understand the need to take a perfectly attractive actress and then photoshop her into oblivion.

    At least the didn’t mess with her body(at least not in a noticeable way)

  4. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    They also seem to have made her skinnier or is it just me? I don’t know I hate these stupid ads and I hate PETA. Don’t get me wrong I support their message but they get under my skin.

  5. Kaboom says:

    Her face looks like it has been deformed. Guess PETA didn’t want to spend the money on a pro-photoshopper.

  6. Laura says:

    I really don’t understand your obsession with this nobody, except she has hips and nice boobs?

    Anyone who shills for PETA deserves to be flogged. They do way more harm to animals than good.

  7. MikaMoo says:

    doesn’t even look like her.

  8. Julie says:

    I think they definitely shaved off some pounds, among other things.

  9. brin says:

    She kind of looks like a chipmunk so I guess it’s appropriate for a PETA ad…lol.

  10. Schnauzers!!! says:

    She is beautiful normally. They photoshopped her to heck it doesn’t even look like her!!

  11. Melissa says:

    What the??? That top pic doesn’t even look like my Kelly. They airbrushed her into oblivion!

  12. missilepanda says:

    is she pregnant again? looks thicker around middle in the pap pic than normal.

  13. Calli Pygian says:

    As though they were going for a (wild?)cat- faced look…but painted reptile skin on her…hmmm.

  14. Kasey says:

    Yes! ALL three. That pic makes her look like she belongs in Fraggle Rock. Yeeesh!!!! WHY?!

  15. the original bellaluna says:

    I refuse to apologise for my fabulous (and only) pair of snake-skin boots.

    PETA thrives on being inflammatory, not taking a common-sense approach. Time for them to go the way of the snake who became my boots.

  16. Ruth says:

    I stopped supporting PETA when I found out they kill 98% of the animals they “rescue” and spend all thier money on nothing but dumb and offensive advertising campaigns.

  17. GradStudentEatingHotPockets says:

    It looks like they photoshopped her face into some weird cat-lizard hybrid. It looks uncomfortable.

  18. Katie says:

    I understand people’s problems with PETA, but that shouldn’t mean that the underlying message is wrong. Killing animals for the sake of fashion is gross. Fabulous snakeskin boots? Gross.

  19. bluhare says:

    For those of you who hate PETA and the people who “shill” for them, Ryan Gosling lent his name to their campaign publicising how chickens are slaughtered.

  20. original kate says:

    i thought it was that chick from “glee,” and thought she looked pretty good. now i know she is the lovely kelly brooks, all i can say is that is one BAD photograph.

  21. El Kiddo says:

    Their graphic people really need to sign up for Photoshop Addict Anonymous.

  22. xxx says:

    she has such a pretty face but they ruined it. what a shame

  23. Charmander says:

    She looks like the love child of Kelly Brook 1.0 and Fran Drescher.

  24. ohdear says:

    They probably did this to her so that she wouldn’t steal the spotlight from the other Peta girl ;). Poor Kelly she is such a beauty…

  25. Rachael says:

    I don’t even know who she is. Peta is stupid. Who cares.

  26. the original bellaluna says:

    Katie – Obviously, you’ve never seen my boots! 😉 I kid, I kid – I bought them a long long time ago, before my ideals changed. (And they are still fabulous.)

    I think any type of cruel killing for any reason (food, sport, fashion, just because) is wrong.

    But PETA’s approach is off-putting and while PETA talks the talk, they don’t walk the walk. If they did, they wouldn’t be euthanising all those “rescue” animals.

  27. Emily says:

    It looks like they tried to turn her into Natalie Portman? Not good.

  28. Auds says:

    What (perversely) amuses me about these celebrities that pose for PETA is that somewhere along the line they end up carrying their little designer clutches that are usually made from leather or snakeskin…but wait, maybe that’s okay if the animals are euthanised? *shakes head in confusion*

  29. Sparkly says:

    Wow. I think they made her look like Susan Lucci.

  30. wunderkindt says:

    And all your Louboutins are made from WHAT??? (Hint: It’s not rubber!)

  31. asdf says:

    @gee, you need to do some research on the actual overpopulation problem and placement issues with pets. Don’t hate PETA because they don’t have the money, resources, time or anything else to take care of what dumbfucks and their stupid breeders do. Euthanasia is very sadly often the best and only choice. Unless you, and everyone else on the planet is willing to house 50 homeless animals apiece, you need to shut your fucking mouth.

  32. Phil says:

    I’m pretty sure the Photoshopping was trying to carry on the theme of making her look snake-like but it went hideously wrong.

    It’s ended up in that in-between state where you can’t quite tell what they were exactly hoping for but it’s still made Kelly almost unrecognisable and uncanny valley.

  33. Gretchen says:

    I hate PETA and not for the euthanising thing. Their whole message and how they promote their mission is disgusting ie: “Don’t commodify animals! Listen to the naked lady”, yeah commodifying women to make your point is a sure way to lose my attention and respect.

    Anyhoo, if the above pic didn’t say kelly brook, i never would have recognised her. Why did they take a lovely looking woman and photoshop her to fug?

  34. Alex says:

    I met Kelly in real life, she’s absolutely stunning. She’s actually not that photogenic, seriously! She turns heads in public, men, women, kids. I’m not a fan because she’s thick as two short planks, but she really is pretty. However, in that ad they’ve made her look more “cat like”. The original face pic would’ve worked better.

  35. JaneWonderfalls says:

    @Gee I totally agree, Peta is a bunch of hypocrites and half of the actors who pose wear leather shoes, jackets, bags and purses. I know cause I see them in photos all the time on the red carpet. It’s amazing the scrap Peta gets away with. BTW, I’m a Vegan and huge animal lover but I hate PETA.

  36. JaneWonderfalls says:

    @ASDF Please refrain from being rude and using profanity to insult another person for having an opinion you don’t agree with.

  37. Katyusha says:

    @ JaneWonderfalls

    While I would never tell someone to shut their f-ing mouth on a gossip blog, what asdf said is a fact, not opinion. Everyone knows there is a gigantic animal overpopulation problem. It’s also fact that it’s impossible for every single one of these animals to be rescued.
