LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Heidi Montag might be busy baring her new body for the world to see in itsy bitsy bikinis, but her sister-in-law, Stephanie Pratt, is showing some skin for a much different cause.
Stephanie is featured – sans clothing – in a new ad for PETA2 (PETA’s young adult branch) and the organization’s “Be Nice to Bunnies” campaign.
In the ad, an in-the-buff Stephanie poses in front of a pink backdrop with nothing more than a white rabbit covering her upper body.
“I think it’s important for people to be informed consumers,” Stephanie said. “Guinea pigs and rats and bunnies … [are] blinded, poisoned, and burned for such a useless experiment that’s not needed.”
The photo was taken for PETA’s new iPhone cruelty-free shopping application, however, it was deemed to risque for the Apple iTunes Store, according to PETA.
Instead, the group also issued an ad featuring a fully-clothed Stephanie (still with bunny) for the app.
When it comes to her own fashion sense, the “Hills” starlet said she stays away from fur.
“I only wear fake fur because I don’t believe in skinning animals for fashion,” she added.
Stephanie is the latest in a long line of celebs who have bared all to help promote PETA, including Eva Mendes, Pamela Anderson, Khloe Kardashian, Joanna Krupa, Bethenney Frankel and Alicia Silverstone.
