Back in May, when she was still famously known as “George Clooney’s Girlfriend”, model Elisabetta Canalis posed for a series of sultry photos as part of PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign.
Four months later, the 33-year-old no longer is attached to the famous movie star, but is set to capture the hearts of Americans on her own as a contestant on the new season of “Dancing with the Stars”. And there’s perhaps no better way to make her an early favorite than with the release of those new PETA ads.
“I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction,” she told the animal rights org. “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.”
Check out another shot of Canalis below. PETA will promote the ad on billboards and ads worldwide starting this fall.
