Cloris Leachman, 82, the former Miss Chicago and "Dancing With the Stars" grande dame has taken a natural approach to her new ad for PETA encouraging a vegetarian lifestyle.

Wearing a dress made entirely of cabbage and lettuce leaves, Leachman (who gave up eating meat over 40 years ago) the ad shot by photographer Robert Sebree encourages people to "Let Vegetarianism Grow on You."

The vegetable ballgown is actually more coverage than Leachman has had in the past. Nearly a dozen years ago she appeared on the cover of Alternative Medicine magazine covered in nothing but body paint.
