Ruby Rose Bares All for PETA and MAXIM

Ruby Rose would really, really rather go naked that wear fur. And to prove it, she’s stripped down for MAXIM Australia.

The Aussie model and DJ appears on the cover of October issue of the magazine wearing nothing more than tattoos and a sultry pout. And she’s not wearing much more on the inside spread, either. The shoot, which features Rose modeling a variety of wigs and not much else, is a joint venture between MAXIM and PETA, and is supposed to function as an anti-fur campaign. The model has been a PETA supporter for years, and although the organization once asked Rose to do an “Ink, Not Mink” campaign, this is the first time she’s been able to highlight her animal-rights beliefs.

“A couple of years ago PETA wanted to do an anti-fur shoot with me, but we never got around to it. Then MAXIM came along and I thought it’d be the perfect fit. Not only was it fun, but it was also for a good cause,” she told the magazine.

Rose is staunchly against the use of fur in fashion, and has openly criticized the Australia’s Next Top Model for the use of fur on the show.

“They could have so easily used faux fur and even a lot of heavy hitters in fashion avoid fur. It’s unacceptable in this day and age and in most people’s eyes and it saddens me that this can still occur,” she told the the Herald Sun.

So, why is fur such a hot-button issue for Rose? She told MAXIM, “Not a lot of people know about fur. More often than not, in China they actually skin cats and dogs, domesticated ones, and most of the time they skin them alive. They claim that it’s rabbit fur, since it’s hard to tell the difference. I was mortified thinking this happens just to make a f–king jacket. I can’t get past the idea of having an animal that’s been skinned alive on top of me and somehow thinking that’s cool from a fashion standpoint.”
