Aussie Supermodel Poses Nude in Anti-Fur Ad
Imogen Bailey Bares Herself to Expose Animal Cruelty
Australian supermodel Imogen Bailey poses nude for a Korean ad against fur. The Koreean phrase says "I'd rather undress than wear fur."

Australian supermodel Imogen Bailey has laid claim to the title of Australia's sexiest model and graced magazine covers from Down Under to continental Europe and the U.K. Now, supermodel and actress Imogen Bailey has posed au naturel for a brand-new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia-Pacific, which aims to draw attention to the cruelty to animals inherent in the fur industry. Shown kneeling down and strategically covered only by the bunny she's holding, the ad—which is in English and Korean—carries the tagline "Hands Off the Buns! … No Fur."

"I'll gladly bare my skin if it will help save animals' skins," says Imogen, who was featured on the Australian version of the TV show Celebrity Big Brother and has appeared on stage in The Vagina Monologues. "Buying anything with fur—even if it's "just a little trim"—supports one of the most gruesome industries on the planet."

Korea is one of the world's leading fur consumers. Animals trapped in the wild for their fur often suffer for days before they are stomped or bludgeoned to death. Animals on fur farms are confined to tiny, filthy cages before they are poisoned, gassed, or electrocuted or have their necks broken. PETA has obtained undercover video footage showing how fur farmers in China—now the world's leading fur producer—swing foxes and raccoon dogs by their hind legs and smash their heads on the ground, breaking the animals' necks but leaving them panting, blinking, and conscious as they are skinned alive.

This isn't the first time that Imogen has helped PETA help animals. She posed for an ad calling for a tourist boycott of Thailand until the Thai government acts to protect elephants, and she lent her voice to PETA Europe's campaign against the use of real bear fur in the hats worn by the British queen's guards. For her outstanding efforts to fight animal abuse, Imogen was presented with PETA's 25th Anniversary International Humanitarian Award in 2005.
