Kim Kardashian, star of the hit reality television show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, knows a thing or two about public exposure. Scores of people have already seen her bootylicious bod in the buff thanks to her previous sex tape scandal and her equally infamous Playboy photo shoot. Thus, when her sister Khloe Kardashian posed nude for a PETA campaign ad recently, Kim played the part of the supportive sibling.
The girlfriend of the New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush wrote a blog entry slamming critics who claimed that Khloe’s photo for the animal rights group was airbrushed extensively for the campaign. Kim says:
“I am so proud of Khloe for following her passion for animals. Some bloggers are being harsh about her PETA ad, claiming her photo was heavily airbrushed… But photographer and good friend Troy Jensen, who shot the ad, was quick to quell the rumors saying…
‘I really did NOT do any body shaping on [Khloe]. I didn’t do computer sculpting or liposuction on it at all. She has very smooth skin. She’s also the wild child of the group so I wanted wild hair – it’s a beautiful shot.'”
Khloe herself has a few words as the latest celebrity to participate in PETA’s I’d Rather Go Naked anti-fur campaign:
“Compassion is the fashion this holiday season, so join me in boycotting fur. With all the stylish and super-warm things you can wear, it’s easy to have a killer look without killing animals.”
Khloe, the youngest daughter of the late defense attorney Robert Kardashian, is known as the “voice of reason,” the “free spirit,” and, most infamously, as the “Sasquatch” among the Kardashian sisters. Besides the PETA campaign and co-owning the LA clothing boutique DASH, Khloe is also known for her recent arrest for DUI.
Several stars have already participated in PETA’s campaign, all of them posing in their birthday suits to further the cause against fur use in fashion. Some of these celebrities who decided to bare all for a cause are actress Eva Mendes, Jackass‘s Steve-O, Playboy bunny Holly Madison, and supermodel Janice Dickinson.
