It’s Here! Elisabetta Canalis’ Naked PETA Ad

Published by PETA.

Temperatures in Los Angeles were normal this afternoon, but on Rodeo Drive, it was positively steamy as Elisabetta Canalis unveiled her “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ad to an enthusiastic crowd, getting the fall shopping season off to an animal-friendly start.

Elisabetta explained why she wanted to go nude to protest fur, saying, “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.”

The Italian model and actor wants her furry home country to go faux, too, so PETA is placing billboards and posters of the ad throughout the fashion capital, Milan.

Want Elisabetta’s bella look? Leave fur on its rightful owner.
