Talk show host Wendy Williams is giving up her fur–and the rest of her clothes in PETA’s latest “I’d Rather Go Naked” ad. PETA unveiled the ads in Times Square featuring a nude Williams with her famous wig providing the only coverage.

Williams, a former fur-wearer, follows previous naked ad stars Taraji P. Henson, Vanessa Simmons, Eva Mendes and more.

“We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and the let the animals keep theirs,” she says in a press release. “I don’t really think that fur is a mark of success anymore. As a decent person, with compassion, it just seems like the right thing to support,” she says in a behind-the-scenes video from the PETA photo shoot.

Williams will be encouraging her viewers to donate their fur coats to PETA for donation to the homeless. She will also work with shelters to have coat drives in her home state of New Jersey, which was pummeled by Superstorm Sandy last month.
