Karina Smirnoff bares all in a new PETA ad.
USA Today reports that the Dancing With The Stars stunner, 31 – who just called off her engagement to Maksim Chmerkovskiy — appears in the “I’d Rather Dance Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign. The ad was shot by celebrity photographer Robert Sebree.
“I did wear fur, especially when I was growing up in the Ukraine,” she says.
She says stopped wearing it after seeing video footage of baby seals who were killed for their skins.
It’s cruel “when we take advantage of an innocent animal that cannot defend herself,” she says.
Adds Smirnoff, ”There are ways of being warm and being fashionable without being cruel.”
