The Only Way Is Essex star and plus-size fashion designer Gemma Collins stars in a brand-new PETA ad that proclaims, “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur”. Collins unveiled her ad, shot by top celebrity photographer Karl Grant, in London’s Piccadilly Circus today.Gemma says: “Like PETA, I believe that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, You don’t have to be a size 8 to feel beautiful, but you do have to be comfortable in your own skin. And that means letting animals keep theirs – not killing them for their fur.”
Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy cages before they are beaten, gassed or electrocuted – and even skinned alive. For these reasons, Collins and other high-profile designers – including Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Vivienne Westwood – refuse to use animal fur in their designs.
