Evelyn Lozada stripped naked for the latest PETA ad to convince fans to not purchase fur during the holiday shopping season.
The "Basketball Wives" star joined the likes of other celebrities who supported the cause to pose in the buff for an anti-fur ad, including Wendy Williams and Pamela Anderson. The PETA ad was photographed by top celebrity photographer Drexina Nelson.

In case the print ad wasn't convincing enough, the team behind the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals have released a video on YouTube where the reality star verbally expresses her passion for the cause.
After seeing video footage of how furry mammals are slaughtered at animal farms for retail profit, Lozada, 37, took the time to discuss the how the harsh treatment "clicked" and convinced her to go fur-free.
"You can verbalize what happens to these animals a thousand times, but [when] you see it, it definitely clicks in-and it did for me," Lozada says in the video while in the buff.
The PETA ad is the second time the reality star has stripped for the cameras since her divorce from disgraced former NFL player Chad Johnson.
The Bronx native wore various swimear looks as she posed in and out of a pool. "So happy to FINALLY get back to work after taking a hiatus that seemed like FOREVER!" she wrote on her website at the time.
Lozada had been laying low ever since she was assaulted by Johnson outside of their home on Aug. 12. She even canceled scheduled appearances to promote the book she released this summer, "The Wives Association."
The former couple's divorce was finalized on Sept. 19, after a brief two-month marriage.
Watch the video below where Lozada discusses why she no longer wears fur.
