Kelly Brook gets naked for snakes

Kelly Brook has posed naked with snakeprint painted on her skin to back up her claim "Animals Belong in the Wild, Not in Your Wardrobe."

The model teamed up with animal rights group PETA as part of a campaign against the use of exotic animal skins in fashion, and unveiled the portrait to coincide with the start of London Fashion Week.

Kelly said: "It makes my skin crawl to think about the violent ways snakes, lizards, alligators and other exotic creatures are raised and killed for boots, bags and belts.

"Our message is to support the designers who are creative without being destructive, and go for the great fakes that pay tribute to the animals' beauty without killing them."

Kelly posed for the nude portrait at Bryan Adams' Chelsea studio.

Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix is also part of the campaign, narrating an undercover video which shows how snakes are nailed by their heads to trees and skinned alive, and how lizards are snared in the wild.
