Elisabetta Canalis: I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur
Italian superstar Elisabetta Canalis bares all for PETA’s iconic anti-fur campaign and proudly declares that she’d rather go naked than wear fur. Canalis stripped down and stars in a sexy PETA ad to help spread the word about the cruelty involved in fur. “I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction,” she explains. “That is what is required to keep people’s attention on such a brutal practice …. These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion.”
Every fur coat, vest, hat, or fur-trimmed accessory causes animals an immeasurable amount of suffering. Foxes, minks, rabbits, and even dogs and cats are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and gassed to death, and many are skinned while still alive. You can help put an end to this unimaginable cruelty by choosing never to buy or wear fur or fur trim. Check out PETA’s cruelty-free clothing guide for tips on how to show off your style—without hurting any animals.
“Don’t buy fur,” Canalis urges. “Even a little trim—your gloves or your bag or your jackets …. You must remember that animals don’t have a voice. You must be their voice. Never be afraid to speak up.”
