Evelyn—a former fur-wearer who had a change of heart and gave up fur for good after she saw for herself how animals suffer on fur farms—recently unveiled her cheeky new winter-themed naked anti-fur ad. In the PETA ad, shot by top celebrity photographer Drexina Nelson, Evelyn shows the world that a woman does not need to wear fur to be glamorous or beautiful:

Join Evelyn and keep warm without harming animals by taking this pledge to go fur-free.
