Ruby Rose naked in MAXIM Australia.
It’s Ruby Rose as you’ve never seen her before – nude, for the very first time, on the cover of MAXIM Australia. Inside, over a 10-page exclusive ‘Ink Not Mink’ spread, Ruby declares she would rather go naked than wear fur!
In the edgy, anti-fur shoot for MAXIM, done in conjunction with animal rights group PETA, Ruby fires up about a cause she feels very strongly about, proclaiming, “If you gave me the option of spending a week being naked and vulnerable in public, or I had to wear fur, I’d prefer going nude.”
Ruby poses nude for the first time in her career with a stunning shoot which took place at Middle Head Fort in Mosman, Sydney, which has a rustic, jail-like feel. Photographed by Carlotta Moye, the spread sees Ruby wearing nothing more than an assortment of wigs.
With her star still very much on the rise, MAXIM’s timing couldn’t have been better.
“PETA wanted to do an anti-fur shoot with me a couple of years ago but for various reasons we never did it. Then MAXIM came long and I thought it would be a perfect fit.”
Ruby’s shoot is also timely given this week’s controversial episode of Australia’s Next Top Model where contestants wore fur. “I’m disappointed ANTM made it a challenge/shoot focus,” she says. “They could have so easily used faux fur and even a lot of heavy hitters in fashion avoid fur. There is no upside to it but guess that it gives PETA a platform to educate people that fur is taken off animals usually by the skinned alive technique or after being electrocuted in the anus. It’s unacceptable this day and age in most people’s eyes and it saddens me that this can still occur.”
