This morning trio of models wearing gas masks, nipple tape and little else certainly turned heads at the opening of London Fashion Week.
It was the animal rights organisation PETA who donned gas masks and hazards signs in a bid to raise awareness and deter attendees from wearing fur.

“There's nothing fashionable about fur torn from the bodies of struggling animals and then laden with chemicals that are dangerous to people who wear it. PETA is urging kind people to choose fur-free clothing for the sake of their own health and animal welfare", says PETA associate director Elisa Allen of the protest.
