The new ads against the wearing of animal fur present 'Dancing with the Stars' pro Karina Smirnoff for PETA. In the ads, the newly-single dance star does a naked tango with an unidentified gentleman next to the caption, "I’d rather dance naked than wear fur."

With so many celebs jumping on the animal rights bandwagon, Karina Smirnoff for PETA isn’t all that surprising. The 31-year-old star did, however, admit that she hadn’t always been concerned with animal rights. She told PETA, "I did wear fur, especially when I was little." Only when she watched the clubbing of baby seals did her views change.

Smirnoff continues, "...there are ways of being warm and being fashionable without being cruel." Like animal nudetivism, for instance.
