Argentine top model Vanesa Carbone cat-walked topless in front of the Japanese embassy in Santiago de Chile to protest Japan's indiscriminate whale hunting and the use of animal skins in human clothing.

“The only skin I have is mine” said one of the posters which the 2006 Playboy bunny carried as part of the protest with support from PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Another poster read “Let them live” with the silhouette of a whale. Although some of the neighbours from the posh high district of the Chilean capital “were uncomfortable with the very original protest”, according to the Chilean press, “the 2006 Argentina Playboy girl completed her performance to the applause of several bystanders”. This is not the first time Ms Carbone likes to show her-self naked in public: she did something similar last year in Buenos Aires to protest for the same cause. She has been known to have shared holidays with the Argentine soccer player Carlos Tevez currently in Manchester United and other Buenos Aires stars. Ms Carbone is originally from Tierra del Fuego and arrived in Buenos Aires with the intention of going to Law School but ended working as a staff member for her province's federal senator Mario Danielle. Unable to keep herself with her staff income she began a modelling career which by the looks of it with or without clothes has been a great success. According to the gossip magazines from Buenos Aires, Ms Carbone confessed she is a strong supporter of former President Nestor Kirchner whom he admires for having put an end to the “hundred years of solitude” of Patagonia and the extreme south of Argentina.
