Former Miss USA winners are saying no to fur! Shandi Finnessey (2004), Susie Castillo (2003), Shanna Moakler (1995) and Alyssa Campanella (2011) are posing nude in a new campaign for PETA.

The four ladies stripped down and posed side-by-side for the sexy new ad, which features the message, "Feel Beautiful in Your Own Skin, and Let Animals Keep Theirs." The new campaign calls for pageants to stop awarding fur coats as prizes to winners.

"As long as I'm the director of Miss Nevada, we will never award fur coats as prizes, and I urge my fellow pageant directors to make the same pledge," Moakler, 38, said in a statement to PETA. "Kind people today are taking a stand against cruelty to animals—so a fur coat is no prize for a compassionate, socially-aware woman."

"I've been an animal lover all my life, and the more I learned of the torture that animals go through in the name of fashion, I just think it's so unnecessary . . . it's unbelievable to me," Castillo, 33, said. She said she felt "blessed" to be a part of the campaign "to take a stand united and to tell the pageant industry not to support the fur industry."
