The ad for the nonprofit animal-rights organization, which was shot by famous photographer Brian Bowen Smith, debuted Monday, November 21, at the intersection of 40th Street and Eighth Avenue, ahead of the holiday shopping season. In the photo, the Clueless actress, 40, stands totally naked in a field, holding a sheep mask. The slogan reads, “I’d rather go naked than wear wool. Wear your own skin. Let animals keep theirs.”

Silverstone, a longtime vegan and animal-rights activist, has already sworn off wearing leather or down. Now she’s ditching wool for PETA’s #WoolFreeWinter and pledging that she will no longer buy the fabric.

The Batman & Robin actress explains how cruelly the sheep are treated in a video on PETA’s website. “They’re cut. They’re harmed,” she says. “They get very seriously wounded and there’s no care for them when they’re wounded. It’s just move on to the next. These are not creatures to the people who are doing this. They’re just objects. When the sheep are no longer useful, they’re killed. There is no happy place they get to go for being a wool sheep.”
