Lozada Strips Down for Peta’s Anti-Fur Campaign

This holiday season, Evelyn Lozada is lending her voice and her body for a good cause…

The 37-year-old Puerto Rican Basketball Wives star has stripped down to her birthday suit for PETA‘s latest “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign.

Evelyn Lozada's PETA Ad

Lozada’s cheeky new winter-themed anti-fur ad, shot by celebrity photographer Drexina Nelson, features the reality television star laying on her stomach with her bare legs dangling in the air and covered with faux snow.

“I’m an animal lover,” she says in a new promo spot for the campaign. “I’m definitely one of those people who wore fur years ago. I was looking online and I saw how these animals are tortured…You don’t really realize the hurt and the pain that they go through.”


In the PETA ad, Lozada shows the world that a woman doesn’t need to wear fur to be glamorous or beautiful.

She’s the latest in a long line of celebrities who’d “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur,” including Eva Mendes, Khloe Kardashian, Christy Turlington, Wendy Williams, Joanna Krupa and Bethenny Frankel.
